#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…

#81 Black and white

Black and white photography is something special. A picture of a wooden door can be so much more beautiful if you make it black and white. Had I taken this picture in color, it would have been a really depressing door. In black and white, the door is alive. I have used many cameras, during…

#80 Life goes on

Despite the Corona virus, life goes on around us. Today has been a wonderful day, where I live – but of course clouded by what’s going on in the world. Still – we can not put life on pause. We have to keep living and try and do the best of our days, in a…

#79 Discover a great photographer

Photo from a photo walk in Stockholm last week These days of Corona, it is easy to feel like nothing is going our way. Besides from this, the Swedish winter where I live has been poor. It is hard to find inspiration to do what I love – to go out and make photos. A…
