#226 Frost in a different way

It is a – nowadays – typical on and off winter in southern Sweden. For now we are having a couple of minus centigrades. The good thing about that is that the frost is making the landscape really beatutiful. We were on our way south when I saw this fantastic church – Säby church. I…

#225 About a Picture

When you stay at Scandic Hotel Swania in Trollhättan you may be in for a surprise if you are new in town. Just outside your window you hear a bell and some strange sounds. Then there is this low frequency ”thump…thump…thump…” that seem to get closer and closer. Then you look outside the window…and see…

#224 About a Picture

In my birth town Helsingborg there is this coffee shop / café that has always been there. The coffee grinders in the window has been running as long as I can remember. The thing is – I have never been inside, as I can remember. I didn’t go in this time either. But next time…

#223 Missed Leica-years

In the early 1990:s I attended a couple of photography courses in the evenings. We learned composition, light, tried out new cameras and spent much time in the darkroom. My favourite camera I got to try out was the Hasselblad. I can’t remember wich model – but that doesn’t matter. The square format was fun…

#222 Gear

Rainy and cold outside. Got an idea to make a page about gear for my Blog. No affiliate links to make money – just a little about my photography gear. The gear doesn’t matter is what we hear everywhere…but it does. At least for me. It doesn’t make the pictures that much better…but it feels…

#221 Frosty Christmas Day

In Sweden we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve. Christmas Day is a day to relax, spend time with family and eat food from yesterday… The weather was fantastic before noon. The nature white of frost. We went for a nice walk on the nearby countryside. Felt like using my X-T2 today and mounted the XF50-140/2,8….

#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…

#218 Using wide lenses on the Leica M240

A couple of months ago I noticed that some of my pictures had a purple tint in the right side of the picture. In a closer look I saw it in the left side as well. The first thought was that there was a sensor problem with my MP240. I shivered as I imagined the…

#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…

#216 About a Picture

We were on our way to one of Swedens most famous ancient monuments, Ales Stenar (a ”ship” of stones – see picture below). In the summer this place is filled with visitors. In November – not so much. We were completely alone. It is about a kilometer long walk from the parking to the stones….

#215 Citylife in BNW

I am in one of my Black and White periods at the moment. In a city like Stockholm it can be tempting to shoot color photos. Aspecially around christmas when the whole city is lit up. But I had decided to have my camera set to black and white jpg:s, to get in the right…
