#66 Winter Light

Leica M240 and Zeiss Biogon 35/2,8 Every year around Christmas – when it doesn’t get any darker outside – Linköping is lit up by the Winter Light exibition. Winter Light is a number of installations around the city, with ”light” as a theme. I must say that I am not generally that impressed by the…

#37 City Walk at home

After I wrote post #35 – The Backyard, I went for a short photowalk in my home town Linköping. I tried to walk where I not usually walk and look where I not usually look. Here is what I found. I used my Leica Q in the Monocrome mode. I have made some adjustments in…

#34 Coffee and cameras

Leica Q There are a lot of nice stuff in a good coffee shop. Just look at the tea bags, the coffee machine or the mugs. The whole shop is all about making you get in the right mood – to have coffee or tea. But there is something seriously wrong with me – I…

#27 A Leica Q Walk

I am learning to shoot with the Leica Q. Or perhaps I should say, learning the camera and how to get the pictures I want with it. I found that this is a fantastic camera to use. Today I took it for a walk in Linköping. I would compare the camera to the Fujifilm X100,…

#22 I forgot to change the settings

#20 Q in the sun

Yesterday me and my Leica Q was out walking in the morning sun. I wanted to try to get the star shaped sun in the frame, using a small aperture. When I look at the picture, I can almost feel the same intensity in the sunlight that I felt as I was shooting. This strange…

#17 Learning the Leica Q – part one

Had the day off and took the opportunity to try out the Leica Q. The weather in Linköping is great – to be in the middle of March. Sunny and about 5 degrees celsius. Shot the pictures with the lens wide open – the camera has an electronic shutter, so this is possible even on…

#16 A New Chapter

A new chapter in my Leica Story has begun; the Leica Q. The first impressions are very positive. A solid camera with fantastic performance. It is hard to imagine a camera to get any better – but then there is the Leica Q2… Today it was a rainy day, but I just had to try…

#14 Streets

Yesterday we were in Linköping to visit one of our favourite restaurants. Before that we took a walk around the city. The weather was nice and one can almost feel that spring is just around the corner. Soon this street will have a green roof. Can’t wait… The camera that was on my shoulder was…
