#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…

#149 One camera and one lens – Part 2

A while ago I wrote a post about traveling with just one camera and one lens (read the post here). My conclusion was that I would be just as happy with just a camera and a 35mm lens – instead of bringing a heavy bag with multiple lenses and cameras. Did I practice this as…

#142 Feeling free

I took a trip to the sea, the other day. I was away for work, and had som time to spare between assignments. I found this small harbour in the outer archipelago and parked the car. I was completly alone in the harbour. Just me and the sea. The wind was blowing rather strong and…

#138 The Hills of Brösarp

The Hills of Brösarp are situated in the most southern part of the most southern county in Sweden; Skåne. The hills are famous in Sweden from several movies and paintings – but more important; they are a really beautiful place to visit. We spent a weekend in Skåne, hiking with some old friends. The weather…

#134 Natures Art

The spring is starting to show it self in our parts of Sweden. It is still only the first days of March, and the weather can change to winter again – but at the moment we have a green nature. Yesterday we found these fantastic cliffs with large icicles everywhere. I can’t remember seeing something…

#133 The Sea

There is something special about the sea. Maybe it is because I have moved away from it? I lived in Helsingborg my first 25 years – a city also called ”The Pearl of the straight” (…at least by the locals). In 1997 I moved away from the sea – and I have missed it ever…

#132 Project Update

My project “Nature Reserves in Östergötland” is slowly moving forward. To date I have visited 14 reserves – which means that I have almost only scratched the surface. But I must say that the project has been a positive thing in these crazy times. We have hiked in the Swedish nature along with friends on…

#125 About a picture

The Central Station in Mjölby a late afternoon in January 2020. Commuters on their way home from work in the tunnel. People waiting for tha train by the track above. I kind of like that there are things happening in several places in the picture. The woman in the upper right corner almost seems to…

#116 Project Update

As a step in my on going project ”Nature Reserves in Östergötland” I today visited the one closest to home; Solberga. I have driven past the sign hundreds of times the last twenty years, but never stopped. Today I did. Like most Nature Reserves, Solberga probably shows it best side in the summertime, but I…

#114 A Project for 2021

Today we started a small project for 2021; to try and visit all Nature Reserves in Östergötland (the Province we live in). It can be quite a challenge – there are 283 of them. Yesterday my wife found a map and a list with check boxes for each and every one of them, and we…

#110 A short stop on the way home

In the middle of September I was on my way home from a job assignment in Växjö, in the heart of Småland (in the southern parts of Sweden). The weather was great and I felt like having a break. I found this old Mill Town called Klavreström where I stopped the car. Beside me on…
