#88 A book for sale

Last year, me and my wife went to the Faroe Islands. I have posted some of the pictures on the blog before, as you may have seen. The Islands are simply beautiful. I have now completed a small soft cover book (60 pages – magazine) with some of the pictures. The book was mainly made…

#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…

#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…

#65 Technical Quality

Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8 What about the technical quality of a photo? How important is that? Do you have to have the sharpest lens, the best micro-contrast or the shortest depth of field? The internet is full of reviews and tips & tricks to achieve this. Often it gets down to money; more money…

#48 The Faroe Islands Part 4

In post #47 I wrote about the small villages at the end of the road. Now it is time for the slightly larger villages – or perhaps Towns is the proper word. Torshavn is the biggest town on the islands and also the capital. After you land at the airport on Vágar, it is a…

#47 The Faroe Islands Part 3

Saksun – Fujifilm X-T2 and 10-24 zoom If you find a narrow road on the Faroes, chanses are high you can find a small village at the end of it. Often the road gets smaller and smaller, until you think about if you should have rented a motorcycle instead. That is when you meet a…

#40 Me, my camera and my bike Part 1

The most uncool bike rider shot, Fujifilm X-T2 and 18-55/2.8-4 Today I went for a cup of coffe in a nearby café with my bike and camera. The summer is back, after a couple of days of gray weather. Not that the rain is not needed – it really is. But the sun makes riding…
