#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…

#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…

#211 When things don’t work out…

I am sure you have experienced it. A fantastic journey, beautiful views and many warm feelings. Pictures everywhere. The compositions never ends. Maybe the ultimate photo experience. Then you get home and load the pictures in to your computer. Suddenly the feelings are all gone. The shots are flat, the horizon is slanted and the…

#209 The largest Cathedral in Sweden

Short trip yesterday to the fourth largest city in Sweden – Uppsala. It was a work trip – but I had time for a short photo session as I arrived before the work started. Where did I go – to Uppsdala Cathedral of course. If you have read this blog before you know that I…

#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…

#203 The way home

Seven hours in the car today, to get back home. The first four proved to be hard for a photographer. There were so many fantastic shots that I just had to drive by. But here are two shots from one of three short stops…

#202 Day three

Clear blue skies today in the Swedish mountains. The best way to experience the views over the fantastic landscape. Unfortenatly we are a couple of weeks too late this year. The trees are almost without colors. I can imagine they were very beautiful two weeks ago… However, the lingonberrys gave the ground nice colors. It…

#198 About a Picture

We were walking along the sea in Helsingör, just outside the Kronborg Castle. It was late September and probably one of the last days with summer temperatures. A man was lying flat on his back, resting in the sand. A small sailing boat was passing by. I hope he was resting…and not…dead…😟

#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…

#195 Shooting in the evening

Taking a walk in the evening as the sun sets, with my Leica M. The Zeiss 2/35 is mounted. Really pleased with the decision to go back to Zeiss, by the way. The results are great. Sharp, nice colors, no flare and great handling. The daylight fades away and the moon is rising. Perhaps one…

#188 The Strait between Sweden and Denmark

I grew up in a city by the ocean – Helsingborg. When you live by the ocean, your life is formed around it – without you knowing it. In the summer we took our bicycles to the beach. When there was a storm we went to the ocean to feel the power of the wind…

#187 About a Picture

I was half asleep as the train rolled in at the airport station. As it made a complete stop I glanced up. There was a picture outside the window – waiting to be shot. The bored woman leaning on her blue backpack, piled on top of the yellow hard bag. The next moment people went…
