#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…

#100 As good as it gets

There was this magical evening on our trip to France in 2015. After a perfect day on the beach, we had returned to our camper. The children were tired as the sun was setting, and we started to prepare for the night. We had stopped in a place called Veules-les-Roses – a small village with…

#99 Honfleur

Continuing on the theme of the last post; Fujifilm X-Pro 1 and France. One of the places I wanted to visit on the 2015-trip was Honfleur. I had heard a lot about the city and how beautiful it is. A must see place for a photographer. An artists town. And I am sure it is…or…

#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…

#97 Favourite cities

Just as some cities can surprise – some just are your favourites. Places you come back to over and over again. Karlskrona, in the very most south eastern part of sweden, is one of my favourites. I come here every now and then, both in my work and private. I always try and take a…

#96 Film recipes for Fuji-X cameras

When you are used to having a simple camera with few options, you might be overwhelmed by the almost unlimited options a Fujifilm X-camers features. I have used Fujifilm cameras since 2012 and feel that I know the cameras pretty well. Still, since I started using the Leica M-cameras, I feel that the incredible amount…

#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…

#93 Like walking in a painting

Golf is for me almost like photography. Been doing it since the 1980:s and is an average golfer/photographer. It doesn´t help to buy new clubs – I will not play any better. The same goes for a new camera… A golf course is often a beautiful place. Some more than others. Yesterday we played one…

#91 A Bike and A Camera

I love taking pictures – and I love riding bikes. Why not do both? As I woke up this morning, the sun was shining and the temperatur was around 20 degrees Celsius. Perfect bike weather. I took my new Fujifilm X100V in a strap, so I could have it easily accesable as I stopped. And…

#90 Time Travel

Back in 1994 I drove around Europe on my bike – a Honda CBX 750. I was 22 and it was the first time I travelled by myself. Well almost by my self – I went with a very good friend. As I look at the pictures from that journey, I find that a lot…
