#192 Chocolat

Sometimes you find a place that you just like. You keep returning time after time, just to feel good. In Sweden we call them ”Smultronställen” – I am not sure of if there is a good expression for it in the English language – there are probably several. Sweet spot? Hidden gem? Anyway…it can be…

#191 What just happened?

It feels like it was only yesterday when the fields were green and growing. The cold and darkness was gone and the days were getting longer. Now, suddenly, the farmers are harvesting all around. But it is only august and we still have a couple of months before the days are shorter then the nights,…

#186 Copenhagen in Black & White

I spent my 50:th birthday in Copenhagen with my family, a few days ago. Well…at least a couple of hours of the day. Lets just say that this was not one of the better days to travel by train in Sweden and Denmark… I used my MP240 to do some street photography around the city….

#172 Carlskrona

Yesterday was a gray and slightly rainy day in southern Sweden. I turned ”black and white”. My intention was to take some pictures in one of the old churches in the city – but as I got there, the church was closed. In the park I found that all the benches had the citys name…

#161 Changing my scanning technique

Up until now I have always used different flatbed scanners for scanning my analogue film negatives. The results has been good most of the times – but I have suspected that it could have been better. Aspecially dense color negatives have been hard to get as good as I would like. The last couple of…

#159 A New Hope

As you may have heard before on this blog, I love black and white photography. When I go out to shoot black and white pictures I find my self in a special “black-and-white-mode” – I see the world in a gray scale instead of in color. The black and white world is different from the…

#156 Back in the north

I have spent the last few days in the northern parts of Sweden. The first time for me since before the pandemic started. My camera was of course with me on the trip. The picture above is from Luleå. The last sun of the day. Perfect for making shillouetts. This time of year the sun…

#150 Aboute a Picture

Playing golf in the sunset is one of my favorite things to do. The light can be so beautiful that I just have to take some pictures. Here is my son in the sun, aiming for the flag in the shadows. The camera exaggerate the differences between light and shadow. Often this can be a…

#122 About a picture

I love this photo. It is shot in Copenhagen in the mid 1990:s. I was on a photo excursion as part of a class I was taking. I think this can have been the first time I was doing street photography – but I didn’t think much of it at the time. I probably used…

#121 Sometimes less is more

This is a picture from the summer of 2016 – one of the first pictures shot with my first Leica M6. We were on a summer festival in our home town Linköping. The Swedish singer Miriam Bryant were giving a concert at the big stage. People were happy – I was happy. Finally I was…

#120 About a picture

It was in the middle of the summer of 2020. A cloudy, but still warm day. My son is taking a nap in the garden. It was when we almost had started to forget Covid. Boy were we wrong…

#107 An M4 and a roll of T-Max 100

Back in June things started to go back to normal again. Covid-19 suddenly did not feel like that much of a threat anymore. As the summer got closer – Corona went further away. We started to get reckless – and now it has finally caught up with us. I went out i Linköping, with my…
