#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…

#89 X100 – again

A while ago, the fifth generation of the Fujifilm X100 was released – the X100V. The new version introduced – among other things – a new sensor, a tilt screen, a new lens and 4K video. Beeing an old X100 fan, I at first considered buing it, but changed my mind. I could not see…

#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…

#84 Discovering a nearby café

The other day I went for a short drive nearby, with my daughter. The weather was nice, but the wind was a little chilly. On our way back we decided to have a cup of coffee at a nearby café in an old station building. We have passed the café [and restaurant] many times, but…
