#167 Is the Leica M11 the last real M?

Just to sort things out first. I love Leica M cameras (but I am not an expert on Leica M:s – I only express my opinions) – that is pretty obvious if you have read this blog before. I love the process of taking pictures. For me it is not about getting a technically perfect…

#165 Boring morning

A short while ago I started an Instagram account, where I planned to post 3×2 black and white pictures from my life. The idea was to use pictures more or less direct from the camera. Now I think – why Instagram? I have my own place here… This is a picture from the other morning….

#163 Winter photos from Vadstena

A night with constant snowfall in our part Sweden. There was lot of snow to move before we could get our car out of the garage. Drove for about half an hour to the small town of Vadstena. In my bag I had packed my digital M and my three lenses. Started off with some…

#162 Just for fun

I love taking pictures for no special purpose, other than for fun. No need to feel any pressure for getting a perfect picture or not getting a picture at all. Still every now and then I find my self thinking about why I should take a picture of a scene. Thoughts like; “I have taken…

#160 Mr P

It was back in 2011. I was on my first visit to the United States and had made a stop in San Diego. We were walking along the sea and this guy was playing the saxophone. They called him “Mr P”.

#155 Waking up

Spent a couple of days in Stockholm, just for fun. Had a camera in my bag this time (usually I have it in my hand or at least over my shoulder…). Took it out every now and then – but the main purpose of the trip was not photography this time… I love a city…

#149 One camera and one lens – Part 2

A while ago I wrote a post about traveling with just one camera and one lens (read the post here). My conclusion was that I would be just as happy with just a camera and a 35mm lens – instead of bringing a heavy bag with multiple lenses and cameras. Did I practice this as…

#148 About a Picture

Central Copenhagen, the other day. My first journey abroad for a long time. Had a great time with my camera. Hope to come back soon…

#147 The final verdict of the Leica M-D 262

If you read my last post, you know that I was thinking about if the Leica M-D 262 was the camera for me or not. I had this idea that a digital camera without a rear LCD would be the ultimate shooting experience. When I saw one for sale, I decided to try it out….

#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…

#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. I kind of like that there are things happening in several places in the picture. The woman in the upper right corner almost seems to…
