#219 Christmas feeling in Linköping

A couple of years ago we were in Vienna in early December. Now that is a city that prepare for Christmas in a serious way. The whole city centre is a large Christmas Market. Today we went to our city – Linköping – to see if Linköping is prepared for Christmas. I had my Zeiss…

#218 Using wide lenses on the Leica M240

A couple of months ago I noticed that some of my pictures had a purple tint in the right side of the picture. In a closer look I saw it in the left side as well. The first thought was that there was a sensor problem with my MP240. I shivered as I imagined the…

#217 About a Picture

Our house is built about 200 meters from the main railway between Stockholm and Malmö. Trains are passing at high speed around the clock. When we moved here we were a little afraid that the trains should be disturbing – but it has almost become the other way around. The trains are our old friends…

#216 About a Picture

We were on our way to one of Swedens most famous ancient monuments, Ales Stenar (a ”ship” of stones – see picture below). In the summer this place is filled with visitors. In November – not so much. We were completely alone. It is about a kilometer long walk from the parking to the stones….

#215 Citylife in BNW

I am in one of my Black and White periods at the moment. In a city like Stockholm it can be tempting to shoot color photos. Aspecially around christmas when the whole city is lit up. But I had decided to have my camera set to black and white jpg:s, to get in the right…

#214 Grey grey grey

Yet another gray day here in our small corner of Sweden. I like shooting black and white on days like this. A nice old Kodak Tri-X in the camera gives life to the grayscale. The lone oak tree has been posted on my blog before. One of our walks is passing the tree and every…

#213 Darker

Sweden in November. The days are getting shorter and the weather is getting colder. Drove to a local farm to buy some eggs today in the afternoon. A really boring day when it comes to photography. But why? Why not take pictures in boring conditions as well? Had to stop and take a picture towars…

#212 Stenshuvud National Park

Our recent trip to Österlen, in the very south of Sweden, included a visit to the National Park Stenshuvud (direct translation; The head of a stone). This was our first time here, so we did not know what to expect… I think it is fair to say that we didn’t expect that much of our…

#211 When things don’t work out…

I am sure you have experienced it. A fantastic journey, beautiful views and many warm feelings. Pictures everywhere. The compositions never ends. Maybe the ultimate photo experience. Then you get home and load the pictures in to your computer. Suddenly the feelings are all gone. The shots are flat, the horizon is slanted and the…

#210 About a Picture

During the initial Covid years many of us – including me – learned to work and live almost all our lives at home. It was then I started to go for a short walk in the morning before work – something I still try to do every now and then. I find it to be…

#209 The largest Cathedral in Sweden

Short trip yesterday to the fourth largest city in Sweden – Uppsala. It was a work trip – but I had time for a short photo session as I arrived before the work started. Where did I go – to Uppsdala Cathedral of course. If you have read this blog before you know that I…

#208 The streets of New York

Back in 2011 I was in New York with my wife and two friends. This was before I heard of ”street photography”. I went there with my Nikon D300s with a 18-200 mm lens and a Canon Powershot S95 in my bag. Now – 11 years later – I have reviewed my pictures with my…
