2017 has been an interesting year for me photographically so far. I don't think I've taken as few pictures with a digital camera since at least 2005. However I am not at all troubled by that, because I've done quite a bit of analog photography so far this year. I've yet to develop the films so it'll be interesting to see how bad I've managed to screw it up so far!Read More
I had the privilege of visiting the Danish capital across the water two Saturdays in a row, so I got quite a few pictures, both during the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk (which I've written about in an entry two weeks ago) as well as an outing there with my fellow board members of my photo club. So I'm sharing some street scenes from the latter trip today.Read More
I took a brief walk in Malmö the other day to get my photography back in gear after a bit of a bout with a cold and while I didn't walk for very long I got a few shots that I'm okay with sharing. Fall is definitely upon us, and people have begun to switch out their colorful summer wardrobe for more somber colors. Still a few weeks to go though before we all descend into Ingmar Bergman territory, wardrobe-wise, so best to make the most of it!
It's interesting to see that there are a lot of people out and about walking around with guide books and maps in Malmö, to an extent that I didn't see just a few years ago. Lots of tourists must do wonders for the hotel and restaurant businesses!
Swedes love their phones...some seem unable to leave them be for even the briefest of moments.... (I should know...I'm one of those people, even though I'm working on leaving the thing in my pocket more).
Sometimes though a face to face conversation is just better than using our phones!
Last Sunday I felt It was time to do another stroll in the city of Malmö to capture whatever struck my fancy and while it wasn't the most well-populated streets I think I found a few interesting things to take pictures of; among tourists, bicycles, pedal boats in the canal and wall murals, to name a few.Read More
The weather has not been especially good for photography in the last week. Great for gardens and farmers in need of irrigation, but not so much for those of us with itchy photography fingers! And it is still pouring down as I write these words, so this week's post is from a day trip to Copenhagen from a few weekends ago.Read More
It is definitely true that when it gets warmer the Swedes move outside! Also they tend to put on more colorful clothes than during the winter months. The city was full of people on a perfectly ordinary Wednesday and there were plenty of opportunities to shoot street photography!
The blog has been silent for a little while (I missed my usual self-imposed Sunday deadline, mostly because I didn't have any new photos I felt like sharing), but hopefully I'll be able to start it up again with this group of photos taken in the city of Lund, Sweden on May 6th.
