#231 Going Crazy

I found this fun little collection of small sculptures today, as I was out walking. Tried to find a way to shoot them that maybe could be a little interesting…or at least nice. The light was rather nice as well. Took a couple of pictures and finally chose one. Normally I would have placed a…

#230 About a Picture

The sun is shining low between the buildings. It is almost impossible to see down the street. People are reduced to silhouettes in the strong hard light. But they don’t care. They are just enjoying the beautiful day in Stockholm…

#229 About a Picture

Another picture of my good old oaktree. The sun is still not high over the horizon – even though the time was about ten in the morning. Before lunch today it almost felt like spring was in the air. But then again – it is only the last days of January. Spring may have made…

#226 Frost in a different way

It is a – nowadays – typical on and off winter in southern Sweden. For now we are having a couple of minus centigrades. The good thing about that is that the frost is making the landscape really beatutiful. We were on our way south when I saw this fantastic church – Säby church. I…

#225 About a Picture

When you stay at Scandic Hotel Swania in Trollhättan you may be in for a surprise if you are new in town. Just outside your window you hear a bell and some strange sounds. Then there is this low frequency ”thump…thump…thump…” that seem to get closer and closer. Then you look outside the window…and see…

#216 About a Picture

We were on our way to one of Swedens most famous ancient monuments, Ales Stenar (a ”ship” of stones – see picture below). In the summer this place is filled with visitors. In November – not so much. We were completely alone. It is about a kilometer long walk from the parking to the stones….

#212 Stenshuvud National Park

Our recent trip to Österlen, in the very south of Sweden, included a visit to the National Park Stenshuvud (direct translation; The head of a stone). This was our first time here, so we did not know what to expect… I think it is fair to say that we didn’t expect that much of our…

#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…

#206 About a Picture

Woke up early at a hotel in Halmstad (in the soutern part of Sweden). Had an early breakfast and grabbed my camera. I love to get out before the city is awake. When the streets still are more or less empty. A nice way to start a day.

#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…
