#194 The Garage

We arrived to the hotel late at night. The parking garage was old and not a place you felt totally safe in. It was poorly lit and only half full. We left the car and went to the hotel for a nights sleep. Then the next day, the garage showed a totally different face. It…

#192 Chocolat

Sometimes you find a place that you just like. You keep returning time after time, just to feel good. In Sweden we call them ”Smultronställen” – I am not sure of if there is a good expression for it in the English language – there are probably several. Sweet spot? Hidden gem? Anyway…it can be…

#191 What just happened?

It feels like it was only yesterday when the fields were green and growing. The cold and darkness was gone and the days were getting longer. Now, suddenly, the farmers are harvesting all around. But it is only august and we still have a couple of months before the days are shorter then the nights,…

#188 The Strait between Sweden and Denmark

I grew up in a city by the ocean – Helsingborg. When you live by the ocean, your life is formed around it – without you knowing it. In the summer we took our bicycles to the beach. When there was a storm we went to the ocean to feel the power of the wind…

#187 About a Picture

I was half asleep as the train rolled in at the airport station. As it made a complete stop I glanced up. There was a picture outside the window – waiting to be shot. The bored woman leaning on her blue backpack, piled on top of the yellow hard bag. The next moment people went…

#186 Copenhagen in Black & White

I spent my 50:th birthday in Copenhagen with my family, a few days ago. Well…at least a couple of hours of the day. Lets just say that this was not one of the better days to travel by train in Sweden and Denmark… I used my MP240 to do some street photography around the city….

#182 Todays Catch

The fisherman is taking care of todays catch of nice looking Salmons. It doesn’t get any fresher than this. Pictures from Luleå today.

#178 The Big Apple

Railway stations can be really beautiful buildings. At least the older stations. They knew how to design buildings back in the days. Just check out the ”Swedish Big Apple” on the top of the roof. They don’t make them like this any more…

#176 About a Picture

Construction sites are not always nice to look at. This is one that I found on the way back to my hotel, in central Gothenburg. One of the better ways to mask a site like this.

#174 Taking my M out

I recently found a good price for a Zeiss 2,8/21mm for my Leica M camera. Yesterday I tried it out in a nearby forest. I haven’t used my M-cameras so much for outdoor or landscape photography before. Often I take my Fujis instead, as I go out for a hike or something like that. That…

#164 Not going professional

There are a great deal of photographers on the internet, making videos and other nice content about photography. A usual topic is how to make money on your photography or become a professional photographer. Wouldn’t that be a dream? Make a living on photography. I have never taken the step to try and become a…

#163 Winter photos from Vadstena

A night with constant snowfall in our part Sweden. There was lot of snow to move before we could get our car out of the garage. Drove for about half an hour to the small town of Vadstena. In my bag I had packed my digital M and my three lenses. Started off with some…
