#158 About a Picture

The same crane as I shot a couple of weeks ago. This time in color. The days are even shorter now – the picture was taken just after one pm. The fun thing is that it is almost golden hour all day this time of year in the very northern parts of Sweden…

#157 Train ride in the dark

I usually fly as I go to Luleå, but this time I took the night train. From where I live it was a 16 hour trip – instead of about 5 hours if I went by air. I have to go by train to the airport as well – the flight in it self is…

#151 About a Picture

As the days get shorter and shorter in Sweden, I look back at the longest day of the year. In June the Swedish nights are short. In the most northern parts, the sun is up all night. We are now at the turning point between light and dark. From now on the nights will be…

#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…

#141 Lack of motivation

Sometimes it is hard to find motivation. I have suffered from loss of motivation for my photography for a while now. I have used my camera – but the result just doesn’t seem to make me excited. They are just boring pictures. I have carried my camera around several beautiful places the last few weeks…

#133 Different Light

What a difference the time of day can do to a picture! I was for a short visit to my birth town Helsingborg, and had the luck of getting a room at the hotel with the most fantastic view of the sea. As I checked in to the hotel, the sun was setting and the…

#119 About a picture

We went for a morning walk a beautiful morning in December last year. Not far from home we passed through this small Birch forest. I had my M4 loaded with Kodak Porta 400 and took a few shots. I like the soft, dreamy light in this picture. The whole forest is black and white in…

#109 The unexpected is often what you remember

One morning we woke up and decided to just take the car, drive north and take a small road up in the mountains (hills). No plan. No internet. No map. Just drive and see where we ended up. The road was carved in the slopes and took us through a fantastic landscape. The views were…

#100 As good as it gets

There was this magical evening on our trip to France in 2015. After a perfect day on the beach, we had returned to our camper. The children were tired as the sun was setting, and we started to prepare for the night. We had stopped in a place called Veules-les-Roses – a small village with…

#99 Honfleur

Continuing on the theme of the last post; Fujifilm X-Pro 1 and France. One of the places I wanted to visit on the 2015-trip was Honfleur. I had heard a lot about the city and how beautiful it is. A must see place for a photographer. An artists town. And I am sure it is…or…

#98 The Fujifilm X-Pro 1

The Fujifilm X-Pro 1 – my second Fuji-X camera. I bought it with the XF18/2 and XF35/1,4 back in 2013. It was – and is – a fantastic camera. All the pictures in this post were shot with it. I still think that the picture quality is great – seven years later. Up until I…

#96 Film recipes for Fuji-X cameras

When you are used to having a simple camera with few options, you might be overwhelmed by the almost unlimited options a Fujifilm X-camers features. I have used Fujifilm cameras since 2012 and feel that I know the cameras pretty well. Still, since I started using the Leica M-cameras, I feel that the incredible amount…
