There is a saying among photographers that’s been uttered so many times that it’s become a cliche, more than a cliche even: “The best camera is the one that you have with you”. That utterance is most definitely true…it is after all tricky to shoot anything if you don’t have a picture-taking device on your person…but it’s also such a cliche that I tend not to say it…not much anyway.Read More
During the month of December (just like in every other part of the world I am sure) there's a tradition for Christmas markets around these parts of southernmost Sweden.
