#256 Market Day

Today was market day in ”Old Linköping”. It was a really nice day and the market was full of people. The theme of the market was mainly plants – but there was a lot of other things as well… Handcraft is often seen at markets in ”Old Linköping”. The trees have got that light green…

#253 Late arrival

Finally it starts to show it self. Spring. Pretty late this year – isn’t it? Suppose it can be related to the climate changes of our world. I shot these pictures in Linköping yesterday with my trusty MP240 (even though it has a little flaw…). Love this part of the year…good thing I didn’t leave…

#248 Between the rain showers

Between the rain showers we went for a walk on the countryside. Tomorrow the snow is supposed to come back again. Took a few shots with my MP. Have shot RAW for a while – but decided to go back to JPG:s again. Used the color filter ”Smooth Color” in the camera. No editing.

#247 Morning in Norrköping

Had the time to go for a walk in Norrköping before work the other day. Found me a bridge – but that was not all… One of the main streets in Norrköping City early in the morning. The yellow trams goes up and down the street all day. At this early hour only a few…

#245 A 35mm lens

Started my day with an early morning walk around a small local lake today. I only met one person and he was on his way home. He had been there since before sunrise and photographed birds. He had an enormous lens on his camera – at least 500mm. Pointed at my camera and asked what…

#239 A scent from the past

When we walk into a library there is this special scent, that has always been the same. The scent of books. We who grew up before the internet spent a lot of time in librarys, searching for information as we went through school. I doubt that my children will remember this scent as I do….

#237 Too easy?

Another beautiful day, another hike. Todays trip went to the castle of Bjärka Säby, south of Linköping. It may have been sunny – but it was pretty cold. It was a short hike – about 5 km – but we found a place we have to revisit when spring comes. As you know [if you…

#236 Wind, sun and patterns

A windy day in southern Sweden today. The sun is shining and the temp is around 5 degrees C. The wind is making a nice pattern in the water puddle. My Fujifilm X-T2 is out and about with me. Lately I have almost exclusively used my Leica M on a daily basis, but sometimes it…

#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…

#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…

#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…
