#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…

#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…

#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…

#75 Swedish Railway Stations in BNW

I travel around Sweden in my work and I try to use the train as much as possible. As it happens I find railway stations and trains fun to shoot. There is nothing like an old station with the classic rounded roof. Unfortenatly…we don’t have that many of them in Sweden..but anyway… I used my…

#37 City Walk at home

After I wrote post #35 – The Backyard, I went for a short photowalk in my home town Linköping. I tried to walk where I not usually walk and look where I not usually look. Here is what I found. I used my Leica Q in the Monocrome mode. I have made some adjustments in…

#21 Shooting B&W with the Leica Q

I love shooting black and white with my M240. It gives me a sense of shooting with an old film camera – the way I think a black and white photo should look like. I had hoped the Q should give me the same result, but up until now I did not really like the…

#4 Leica M6 TTL – My first Leica

My first Leica was a M6 TTL silver edition – an analogue camera. A classic camera. The way to my first Leica was not a straight line. I think it all began around 2010, as Fuji announced the X100. I fell for the camera and since then I have used various models of the X-system….

#2 My first picture with a Leica

This is my first shot with a Leica. I remember it as it was yesterday – it was taken in the mirror of the mens room at my work (!). The camera was my first M6 TTL with a Voigtländer 40/1,4 and the film was a Tri-X 400. This was my first encounter with a…
