#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…

#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…

#80 Life goes on

Despite the Corona virus, life goes on around us. Today has been a wonderful day, where I live – but of course clouded by what’s going on in the world. Still – we can not put life on pause. We have to keep living and try and do the best of our days, in a…
