#78 Passing by Hässleholm

I have passed Hässleholm Central Station hundreds of times. It began back in the early 1990:s as I did my military service. The station is one of the busiest railway hubs in southern Sweden. The old station building has changed a little on the outside – but the inside is all new. However, the three…

#77 Fan Ho inspiration

One way to grow your photography is to look at how others do it (or did do). I am not an expert in the topic – far from it – but I have found some favorites lately. One of them is the Chinese photographer Fan Ho (1931-2016) – a master of lights and shadows. I…

#76 Ships

In Helsingborg – my birthplace – there is this old church that I walked by a thousand times. I think I have visited the church about five times all in all. Yesterday I walked by it again, turned back and went inside. The church – St Marys Church – is originally from the 12:th century….

#75 Swedish Railway Stations in BNW

I travel around Sweden in my work and I try to use the train as much as possible. As it happens I find railway stations and trains fun to shoot. There is nothing like an old station with the classic rounded roof. Unfortenatly…we don’t have that many of them in Sweden..but anyway… I used my…

#73 Stockholm Photos

We spent the weekend in Stockholm, just relaxing and having a good time. I often visit the beautiful Swedish capital, but I rarely have the time just to walk around with my camera a whole day. The weather was nice and so was the company. The streets are full of tourists from all over the…

#72 Photography Channels on Youtube

Peter McKinnon – one of my top Youtube Favorites. All kind of Photography and Video content…and more. Have you ever used Youtube to boost your photography? If not – this may be a start up for a new source of inspiration. Youtube is a fantastic thing. If you find your way, that is. The easiest…

#71 At the Polar Circle

If you look at a map of the world, you will notice that there are few cities north of the Polar Circle. Sweden is one of the countries that stretch north of the circle. The Pictures in this post are from Jokkmokk in Sweden (situated almost exactly on the Polar Circle) shot in 2018 around…

#70 Ugly yet beautiful

In 2016 I was in southern Italy on a weekend trip, with my wife and some friends. We lived in the small town of Pizzo – almost at the toe of the Italian “boot”. The small village is both very beautiful and in some parts quite ugly. The narrow paths between the houses are filled…

#69 A New Year

A new year and new opportunities is ahead of us. New Years Day is always a slow day at our home, when we just relax. I took my camera and went for a little ride, to shoot the first pictures of the coming year – and decade. Leica M240 and Summicron 90/2 The signs of…

#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…

#64 France and an M9

Back in 2017 we went to Nice, France,  for a weekend. At that time I had an M9 and the two Zeiss lenses I still use today, a Planar 50/2 and a Biogon 35/2,8. It was the first journey abroad with a digital Leica. I still had my X-Pro2 back then, and I was thinking…

#61 What camera should I buy?

Visby – Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8 A question I get asked quite often is ”which camera should I buy [or bring], for my trip to…”. The question is almost always asked by persons who are not very much into photography, but they are old enough to think that they need a camera (my kids…

#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…

#58 Paris – from a Leica M6TTL

Champs Elysee Back in 2017 I was  in Paris with my family, for a short vacation.  I had recently bought my first Leica – the M6TTL – and two Zeiss lenses. My main digital camera back then was the Fujifilm X-Pro2. I brought both cameras on the trip to Paris. I shot 3 rolls of…

#57 Mist

Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8 The other day I was driving through a beautiful Swedish autumn scenery. The mist was hanging in the tree tops and the wind was almost none. I was on my way to a work appointment, but I just had to stop and shoot some pictures. Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8…

#56 Vienna and the Leica

Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8 A trip to Vienna the months before Christmas is like going to the mother of all Christmas markets. The inner city is full of small stands full of handcrafted items, punch and glühwein. In the evening the whole city is lit up of Christmas decorations, and full of people just…

#52 Like the past in the future

Helsingborg – Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8 I was born in the Swedish city of Helsingborg in the 1970:s. I moved to Linköping – 350 km north – in 1997, but I have always returned a couple of times each year. There is something special about the place that you grew up in. It somehow…

#51 Why I want to go back, and why not

The Faroe Islands is a wonderful place – I loved it. Would I like to go back? Yes – and no. Let me explain… Fujifilm X-T2 and 18-55 zoom It is always a special feeling, as you visit a place for the first time. All the first impressions. Was it as you had imagined? Exploring…

#50 One Camera and one Lens?

What would a journey to a place like the Faroe Islands be like – from a photographic point of view – if I had brought only one camera with a 35mm lens? For the journey we made I had packed the following cameras and lenses; Fujifilm X-T2, 10-24 zoom, 18-55 zoom and 55-200 zoom, 50/2…

#49 The Faroe Islands Part 5

Boats – Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8 As you may have read in other posts on this page, I am a fan of certain kind of ships; icebreakers, tow boats and pilot boats. Now – after visiting the Faroes – I have to add fishing boats to that list. In the Faroes there are a…
