#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…

#125 About a picture

The Central Station in Mjölby a late afternoon in January 2020. Commuters on their way home from work in the tunnel. People waiting for tha train by the track above.

#122 About a picture

I love this photo. It is shot in Copenhagen in the mid 1990:s. I was on a photo excursion as part of a class I was taking. I think this can have been the first time I was doing street photography – but I didn’t think much of it at the time. I probably used…

#82 I found a new setting

The Leica M240 is a camera full of not many settings, compared to most modern cameras. I was pretty sure I knew all possible settings in the camera – but yesterday I suddenly found a new one. I was playing around with the menue – for no reason – when I saw the setting ”film…

#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…

One way to grow your photography is to look at how others do it (or did do). I am not an expert in the topic – far from it – but I have found some favorites lately. One of them is the Chinese photographer Fan Ho (1931-2016) – a master of lights and shadows. I…
