#197 Citywalk – where the M shines

I have used my Leica M-cameras in many differnt situations; sport, nature, portraits and more – but I think the streets are the best place for the M. Today I walked the streets of Helsingør again with my camera…and my wife… We found a citywalk that was marked with blue dots, that took us around…

#196 Street with a 21mm lens

A while ago I bought a 21mm lens (as mentioned before in recent posts). At first I was bothered by the fact that the rangefinder only supports lenses down to 28mm. Any wider than that requiers an external viewfinder – optical or digital. If you wear glasses like me, anything wider than 50mm in fact…

#194 The Garage

We arrived to the hotel late at night. The parking garage was old and not a place you felt totally safe in. It was poorly lit and only half full. We left the car and went to the hotel for a nights sleep. Then the next day, the garage showed a totally different face. It…

#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…

#189 Highlights and a 21mm lens

I have shot this windows [in the Cathedral of Linköping] before and posted on this blog – but not shot with a 21mm lens. The details in the glass is incredible. I have started to really like the 21mm focal length – even though there are no 21mm framelines in the Leica M. A couple…

#187 About a Picture

I was half asleep as the train rolled in at the airport station. As it made a complete stop I glanced up. There was a picture outside the window – waiting to be shot. The bored woman leaning on her blue backpack, piled on top of the yellow hard bag. The next moment people went…

#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….

#178 The Big Apple

Railway stations can be really beautiful buildings. At least the older stations. They knew how to design buildings back in the days. Just check out the ”Swedish Big Apple” on the top of the roof. They don’t make them like this any more…

#177 The Restaurant

Yesterday I was working at a hotel and found a place in the restaurant where I could have a small meeting with a colleague. After an hour or so I started to see the restaurant around me. I had my Zeiss 2/35 on my M240P and opened up the apreture fully to get the short…

#176 About a Picture

Construction sites are not always nice to look at. This is one that I found on the way back to my hotel, in central Gothenburg. One of the better ways to mask a site like this.

#175 Under a bridge

Heading home after a days work, waiting for a train. Picked up my camera from the bag, looked around me and searched for something interesting to photograph. Nothing. Took a walk and suddenly I was under this bridge. And there I found my shots…
