#68 Colorful December

This year we spent Christmas on Tenerife, instead of the rainy and dark Sweden. Well some parts of Sweden are of course snowy and white, but not where we live. Instead we went to the warm and sunny Tenerife for a week. A colorful contrast to my last post. Leica M240 and Zeiss Biogon 35/2,8…

#66 Winter Light

Leica M240 and Zeiss Biogon 35/2,8 Every year around Christmas – when it doesn’t get any darker outside – Linköping is lit up by the Winter Light exibition. Winter Light is a number of installations around the city, with ”light” as a theme. I must say that I am not generally that impressed by the…

#63 The first M4 rolls

Linköping, Sweden – Leica M4 and Elmar M 50/2.8 – T-MAX 400 film The first two rolls of film from my new (51 years new…) Leica M4 has arrived. I must say I am happily surprised. I didn’t miss the exposure on any of the pictures, even though the camera lack a  light meter. I…

#59 Paris – from the X-Pro2

The Metro station As I looked through the more than 300 X-Pro2 pictures that I kept from the trip to Paris, I realized that there were not many that I would say were good pictures. The technical quality was of course good in most of them – the X-Pro2 is a great camera – but…

#37 City Walk at home

After I wrote post #35 – The Backyard, I went for a short photowalk in my home town Linköping. I tried to walk where I not usually walk and look where I not usually look. Here is what I found. I used my Leica Q in the Monocrome mode. I have made some adjustments in…

#28 I have to take pictures

I always wear a camera – well…almost always. I find my self always looking at things through the finder of a camera – even if the camera is in my bag. Everywhere I look I see pictures. I suppose that I am not alone, suffering from this photography addiction… Today I was out on a…

#22 I forgot to change the settings

Today I made the classic mistake – I forgot to change the settings in the camera. I usually change the settings to a ”standard setting” as I put the camera down – to avoid this from happening. Usually. Not always. This was the way it was supposed to be. In color! The cherry trees are…

#21 Shooting B&W with the Leica Q

I love shooting black and white with my M240. It gives me a sense of shooting with an old film camera – the way I think a black and white photo should look like. I had hoped the Q should give me the same result, but up until now I did not really like the…

#20 Q in the sun

Yesterday me and my Leica Q was out walking in the morning sun. I wanted to try to get the star shaped sun in the frame, using a small aperture. When I look at the picture, I can almost feel the same intensity in the sunlight that I felt as I was shooting. This strange…
