#130 About a picture

Another picture from late January. It had been snowing all day, but in the afternoon it stopped. A clear and cold night was to be expected. A car has made deep tracks in the snow and low fog is starting to form. Lecia M4, Summicron 35 and Kodak Ektar 100

#129 About a picture

A really cold day in January. Another weekend at home, as we have got used to in these Covid-days. The sheep was having their lunch and didn’t care about the temperature. They did however seem to have an issue with me taking a picture of them, as we walked by… My Leica M4 was loaded…

#127 The point of a story

When we look at pictures we form our own opinions or feelings of the motive. There are some photographers that take pictures that can stand for them selves and tell a story without words. That is not the case for all of us – and certainly not in my case. Take these three pictures. Three…

#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…

#67 Gray December

#66 Winter Light

Leica M240 and Zeiss Biogon 35/2,8 Every year around Christmas – when it doesn’t get any darker outside – Linköping is lit up by the Winter Light exibition. Winter Light is a number of installations around the city, with ”light” as a theme. I must say that I am not generally that impressed by the…

#19 Cold stop in Uppsala

Made a two day stop in Uppsala this week. Luckily I checked out the weather forecast before I went – somthing some of my friends did not. The winter was back for a few days and the snow was falling again. Hopefully this was the last snow I will see this spring. It looked like…

#18 From winter to spring

This time of year, Sweden is a very long country. I have just been in Luleå for a week, working. Luleå is one of the most northern cities in Sweden – or even in the world. This picture is from wednesday last week. Then today – back home in Mantorp, outside Linköping – the spring…
