#84 Discovering a nearby café

The other day I went for a short drive nearby, with my daughter. The weather was nice, but the wind was a little chilly. On our way back we decided to have a cup of coffee at a nearby café in an old station building. We have passed the café [and restaurant] many times, but…

#83 The old bridge

Not far from my home, there is this beautiful old bridge. The bridge was part of an old railway that is almost forgotten today. No trains can pass the bridge today. It is possible to walk across it, but one must be a little brave to do so. I used a Kodak T-Max 100 in…

#82 I found a new setting

The Leica M240 is a camera full of not many settings, compared to most modern cameras. I was pretty sure I knew all possible settings in the camera – but yesterday I suddenly found a new one. I was playing around with the menue – for no reason – when I saw the setting ”film…

#81 Black and white

Black and white photography is something special. A picture of a wooden door can be so much more beautiful if you make it black and white. Had I taken this picture in color, it would have been a really depressing door. In black and white, the door is alive. I have used many cameras, during…

#80 Life goes on

Photo from a photo walk in Stockholm last week These days of Corona, it is easy to feel like nothing is going our way. Besides from this, the Swedish winter where I live has been poor. It is hard to find inspiration to do what I love – to go out and make photos. A…

#78 Passing by Hässleholm

I have passed Hässleholm Central Station hundreds of times. It began back in the early 1990:s as I did my military service. The station is one of the busiest railway hubs in southern Sweden. The old station building has changed a little on the outside – but the inside is all new. However, the three…

#77 Fan Ho inspiration

One way to grow your photography is to look at how others do it (or did do). I am not an expert in the topic – far from it – but I have found some favorites lately. One of them is the Chinese photographer Fan Ho (1931-2016) – a master of lights and shadows. I…

#76 Ships

In Helsingborg – my birthplace – there is this old church that I walked by a thousand times. I think I have visited the church about five times all in all. Yesterday I walked by it again, turned back and went inside. The church – St Marys Church – is originally from the 12:th century….
