#146 A two month review of my Leica M-D 262

It is almost two months since I bought my Leica M-D, and I felt that it was time for a short text about my thought of it so far. If you don’t know what’s so special with a Leica M-D 262 here is a short summary: • A full frame, digital rangefinder camera with a…

#144 About a Picture

It was a hot day in Sweden and everyone seeked the shadow. The cows found theirs under an old oak tree. A couple of them looked at me and seemed to be telling me; ”Why are you out there in the sun? Come over here instead…”.

#143 Close enough?

I have always liked black and white film photography. I started out with Kodak Tri-X in the 1980:s and I still shoot it from time to time. But the thing is – todays cameras and post processing can make pictures almost as good as my old black and white Tri-X pictures. Sometimes even better… Recent…

#142 Feeling free

I took a trip to the sea, the other day. I was away for work, and had som time to spare between assignments. I found this small harbour in the outer archipelago and parked the car. I was completly alone in the harbour. Just me and the sea. The wind was blowing rather strong and…

#141 Lack of motivation

Sometimes it is hard to find motivation. I have suffered from loss of motivation for my photography for a while now. I have used my camera – but the result just doesn’t seem to make me excited. They are just boring pictures. I have carried my camera around several beautiful places the last few weeks…

#140 About a Picture

Still working at home, as I have been doing for more or less a year now. Took my camera for a walk on my lunch break and found these glasses, just waiting to be photographed. Wanted to try out my latest ”bargin” – a 90/2,8 Elmar from the 1980:s. A small lens – made in…

#139 The Camera of my dreams

Twenty years ago I had the camera of my dreams – a Nikon F4. It was a beast of a camera – large and heavy. The lenses were even heavier and together they could break anyones back, if worn for a day. Still – this was my dream camera. This was one of those times…

#136 Unique Places

Do we need go travel half way around the world to take photos of unique places? The answer is of course NO. Often the most unique place – at least to the rest of the world – is probably right outside your door. I probably made hundreds of walks around in the small village where…

#135 About a picture

This old turnstile and counter has been around for a while. Numerous visitors to the dance floor at the small island of Valö, has passed it in the summer nights. More than one has probably left with a new partner for life. It all started at the turnstile…

#133 The Sea

There is something special about the sea. Maybe it is because I have moved away from it? I lived in Helsingborg my first 25 years – a city also called ”The Pearl of the straight” (…at least by the locals). In 1997 I moved away from the sea – and I have missed it ever…

#132 Project Update

My project “Nature Reserves in Östergötland” is slowly moving forward. To date I have visited 14 reserves – which means that I have almost only scratched the surface. But I must say that the project has been a positive thing in these crazy times. We have hiked in the Swedish nature along with friends on…

#131 An honest review of the Leica M4

I have used a Leica M4 for a while now, and I feel ready to make a review. My M4 is from 1968, but it looks almost like new. I got the silver version with the beautiful Leica inscription on the top plate. I think this is much nicer than the cameras with the red…
