#102 The Elmar 2,8/50

Today I took this nice Leica-duo for a walk in the sun – the Leica M240 and a Leica Elmar 2,8/50. The Elmar is one of the more affordable Leica lenses – if there is such a thing. It is my only Leica mede lens at the moment – the other two are Zeiss made….

#101 Film vs Digital

A while ago I made a post about film simulations for Fujifilm cameras. Now I have made a small test to compare to real film. I used a Fuji X100V simulating Kodak Porta 400 and a Leica M4 with a roll of Kodak Porta 400. You can slide between the film version and the digital…

#98 The Fujifilm X-Pro 1

The Fujifilm X-Pro 1 – my second Fuji-X camera. I bought it with the XF18/2 and XF35/1,4 back in 2013. It was – and is – a fantastic camera. All the pictures in this post were shot with it. I still think that the picture quality is great – seven years later. Up until I…

#95 Surprised by a city

Sometimes you get ”visually surprised” by a place. You may have built up your own picture of the place in your mind, and then you stick with it – until you visit the place. If you visit it. Maybe you never visit the place, just beacuse of the picture you created in your mind (if…

#94 The Streets of Lund

Last week we spend a day in Lund, in the southern part of Sweden.  Lund was founded in the 10:th century and has a lot of history. When the city was founded it was a part of Denmark. By the time it became the most important city of Denmark. It was not until 1658 the…

#92 And there were cows

The other day, we were driving around in Skåne – as far south you can get in Sweden. We were hungry for lunch, and drove to a famous golf club near the sea. The restaurant at the golf club was crowded (these days, it means that it is just over half full…). Well – we…

#88 A book for sale

Last year I went to the Faroe Islands, with my wife. I have posted some of the pictures on the blog before, as you may have seen. The Islands are simply beautiful. I have now completed a small soft cover book (60 pages – magazine) with some of the pictures. The book was mainly made…

#87 Notre Dame

A couple of nights ago I watched a documentary about the fire in Notre Dame on Swedish Television. I imagine that many of us remember hearing about it on the news. The first thing in my mind was; It cant be. It is Notre Dame – she can’t be on fire. But she could. She…

#86 The Leica Summicron 2/90

The Leica Summicron 2/90 is probably one of the cheapest Leica lenses you can find. I found mine for just under  7000 Swedish Crowns – about 700 Euros/Dollars. Mine do however have some flaws – it can only be focused using an EVF. The ring that push the “rangefinder mechanism” in the camera (I don’t…

#85 We are going outdoors

In Sweden we are not locked down at the moment – like many parts of the world is. We are told to keep strict ”social distancing” and to work from home…and so on. If this is the right strategy or not, no one will know until after the pandemic. I personally believe that this is…

#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…

#82 I found a new setting

The Leica M240 is a camera full of not many settings, compared to most modern cameras. I was pretty sure I knew all possible settings in the camera – but yesterday I suddenly found a new one. I was playing around with the menue – for no reason – when I saw the setting ”film…
