#231 Going Crazy

I found this fun little collection of small sculptures today, as I was out walking. Tried to find a way to shoot them that maybe could be a little interesting…or at least nice. The light was rather nice as well. Took a couple of pictures and finally chose one. Normally I would have placed a…

#224 About a Picture

In my birth town Helsingborg there is this coffee shop / café that has always been there. The coffee grinders in the window has been running as long as I can remember. The thing is – I have never been inside, as I can remember. I didn’t go in this time either. But next time…

#223 Missed Leica-years

In the early 1990:s I attended a couple of photography courses in the evenings. We learned composition, light, tried out new cameras and spent much time in the darkroom. My favourite camera I got to try out was the Hasselblad. I can’t remember wich model – but that doesn’t matter. The square format was fun…

#222 Gear

Rainy and cold outside. Got an idea to make a page about gear for my Blog. No affiliate links to make money – just a little about my photography gear. The gear doesn’t matter is what we hear everywhere…but it does. At least for me. It doesn’t make the pictures that much better…but it feels…

#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…

#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…

#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…

#207 The Leica M6 is back in production

I bought my first Leica M in august 2016 – a silver Leica M6 TTL. That small camera opened up a new world to me. It was a time when I had grown tired of photography. It was all just point and shoot – not the process that photography once was. The M6 brought that…

#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…

#190 The Tele-Elmarit and an EVF

A few years ago I bought a Canadian made Leica Tele-Elmarit 2,8/90 from 1979. It was a good deal – at least that was what I thought. The lens turned out to flare quite a bit in some lighting situations. Since I use it on a Leica M – as supposed – I can’t see…
