#231 Going Crazy

I found this fun little collection of small sculptures today, as I was out walking. Tried to find a way to shoot them that maybe could be a little interesting…or at least nice. The light was rather nice as well. Took a couple of pictures and finally chose one. Normally I would have placed a…

#230 About a Picture

The sun is shining low between the buildings. It is almost impossible to see down the street. People are reduced to silhouettes in the strong hard light. But they don’t care. They are just enjoying the beautiful day in Stockholm…

#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…

#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…

#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…

#208 The streets of New York

Back in 2011 I was in New York with my wife and two friends. This was before I heard of ”street photography”. I went there with my Nikon D300s with a 18-200 mm lens and a Canon Powershot S95 in my bag. Now – 11 years later – I have reviewed my pictures with my…

#206 About a Picture

Woke up early at a hotel in Halmstad (in the soutern part of Sweden). Had an early breakfast and grabbed my camera. I love to get out before the city is awake. When the streets still are more or less empty. A nice way to start a day.

#197 Citywalk – where the M shines

I have used my Leica M-cameras in many differnt situations; sport, nature, portraits and more – but I think the streets are the best place for the M. Today I walked the streets of Helsingør again with my camera…and my wife… We found a citywalk that was marked with blue dots, that took us around…

#196 Street with a 21mm lens

A while ago I bought a 21mm lens (as mentioned before in recent posts). At first I was bothered by the fact that the rangefinder only supports lenses down to 28mm. Any wider than that requiers an external viewfinder – optical or digital. If you wear glasses like me, anything wider than 50mm in fact…
