It’s been a bit longer than usual between this post and my previous one (about podcasts) and even longer between this one and my previous photography related post. I think I got hit with the almost annual it’s-winter-and-it’s-too-dark-to-shoot-anything-and-why-am-I-even-bothering-with-this-hobby symptoms. I’m through that now though (I hope), especially with a few sunny days that we’ve had in the last week or so! Of course when I write this first part of the blog post it’s pouring down with rain again, but i guess you can’t have it all (and I am not outside in it, but rather inside, tapping away at my keyboard)!Read More
As the temperature slowly increases and the days grow longer it gets nicer and nicer to be out and about in the "wild", especially when you don't have to wear all the winter gear! This week's blog post has pictures from Falsterbo in the far southwestern corner of the province, where I along with a few others were enjoying the sunshine, warm(ish) weather and relatively calm windsRead More
Some days it is easier than others to be in street photography mode. March 17th is definitely one of those, if you're anywhere near a place where St.Patrick's Day is celebrated in some shape or form! Since Copenhagen is one of these places I've made it a tradition for me to go there to enjoy the sights and sounds of the day.Read More
In the last few weeks I've done a marginally larger amount of street photography after quite a slump in the first weeks of this year. I guess it has to do with the light returning after the short, dark days of winter. After all us photographers are "chasing the light" most of the time, and I think people out and about at this time of year do the same!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.
For some reason this image of mine went utterly viral on Google+ in the last week. I'm by no means the most popular person on that social network (according to the stats I've got about 1300 followers, which is not that impressive given that most of those are probably bots...but that's okay. I enjoy my time there anyway. Hunting and gathering followers has never been my goal on any social network.Read More
Sunday was a day when I sort of restarted my photowalking after my long bout with the flu. There was a gathering of Instagram users who had agreed to walk the streets of Malmö, and I decided to join in. Not so much for the Instagram part, but just to do some photowalking again.
The weather was very nice so I decided to travel into the city an hour early so I could get some shooting done on my own first, because while photowalking is great with fellow photographers it’s not exactly the most rewarding photography wise, because a big group of photographers can’t exactly blend into the scenery. We do tend to stand out sometimes! So the vast majority of these photos I did before the actual walk with all the others, some twenty or thirty people walking around snapping away with their cell phones.
Sometimes feeling good is simple. A slow walk through a forest on the first warm-ish day of spring, basking in glorious sunlight is a very good way towards that. Getting a few pictures in the process is even better. And doing it together with your father who happens to be a photographic mentor is better still.Read More
