#168 Project update

In 2021 I starded a small project; visit all Nature Reserves in my county. There are only about 300 of them. My problem is that I never seem to finish my projects – I get bored or forget about them completley. However this is a project that I get help to remember. Both my wife…

#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….

#164 Not going professional

There are a great deal of photographers on the internet, making videos and other nice content about photography. A usual topic is how to make money on your photography or become a professional photographer. Wouldn’t that be a dream? Make a living on photography. I have never taken the step to try and become a…

#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…

#159 A New Hope

As you may have heard before on this blog, I love black and white photography. When I go out to shoot black and white pictures I find my self in a special “black-and-white-mode” – I see the world in a gray scale instead of in color. The black and white world is different from the…

#158 About a Picture

The same crane I shot a couple of weeks ago. This time in color. The days are even shorter now – the picture was taken just after one pm. The fun thing is that it is almost golden hour all day this time of year in the very northern parts of Sweden…

#157 Train ride in the dark

I usually fly as I go to Luleå, but this time I took the night train. From where I live it was a 16 hour trip – instead of about 5 hours if I went by air. I have to go by train to the airport as well – the flight in it self is…

#156 Back in the north

I have spent the last few days in the northern parts of Sweden. The first time for me since before the pandemic started. My camera was of course with me on the trip. The picture above is from Luleå. The last sun of the day. Perfect for making shillouetts. This time of year the sun…

#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…

#152 About a Picture

Have taken some days off from work and gone hiking in the Swedish mountains. No sun today, but still some fantastic moments. Just love the silence.

#151 About a Picture

As the days get shorter and shorter in Sweden, I look back at the longest day of the year. In June the Swedish nights are short. In the most northern parts, the sun is up all night. We are now at the turning point between light and dark. From now on the nights will be…
