#230 About a Picture

The sun is shining low between the buildings. It is almost impossible to see down the street. People are reduced to silhouettes in the strong hard light. But they don’t care. They are just enjoying the beautiful day in Stockholm…

#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…

#220 A 50mm day

Walked the streets of Vadstena again today. Just wanted to make some last minute buys before Christmas. Of course I brought my camera and one lens. Only took my Zeiss 2/50 Planar with me today. I really like to shoot this lens wide open. It is dead sharp and the out of focus areas are…

#219 Christmas feeling in Linköping

A couple of years ago we were in Vienna in early December. Now that is a city that prepare for Christmas in a serious way. The whole city centre is a large Christmas Market. Today we went to our city – Linköping – to see if Linköping is prepared for Christmas. I had my Zeiss…

#218 Using wide lenses on the Leica M240

A couple of months ago I noticed that some of my pictures had a purple tint in the right side of the picture. In a closer look I saw it in the left side as well. The first thought was that there was a sensor problem with my MP240. I shivered as I imagined the…

#217 About a Picture

Our house is built about 200 meters from the main railway between Stockholm and Malmö. Trains are passing at high speed around the clock. When we moved here we were a little afraid that the trains should be disturbing – but it has almost become the other way around. The trains are our old friends…

#216 About a Picture

We were on our way to one of Swedens most famous ancient monuments, Ales Stenar (a ”ship” of stones – see picture below). In the summer this place is filled with visitors. In November – not so much. We were completely alone. It is about a kilometer long walk from the parking to the stones….

#215 Citylife in BNW

I am in one of my Black and White periods at the moment. In a city like Stockholm it can be tempting to shoot color photos. Aspecially around christmas when the whole city is lit up. But I had decided to have my camera set to black and white jpg:s, to get in the right…

#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…

#209 The largest Cathedral in Sweden

Short trip yesterday to the fourth largest city in Sweden – Uppsala. It was a work trip – but I had time for a short photo session as I arrived before the work started. Where did I go – to Uppsdala Cathedral of course. If you have read this blog before you know that I…

#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…
