  • Walking in a summer afternoon

    Walking in a summer afternoon

    We have this habit of power walking as often as possible, preferably each afternoon, for around 9-10 km. Giving the quality of the experience, it is always great to do it. In 2 out of 3 cases I carry a camera. I actually bought the Fujifilm X20 especially for these walks (and for going to […]

  • What is a Swedish Summer?!

    What is a Swedish Summer?!

    I have referred a lot the Swedish Summer concept here and there. It took us almost 3 years to understand what it is in fact and why it gets us so illogically excited. Simple said, it is one of the best thing around here because it doesn’t happen very often. It can take any period of […]

  • A day on a pilgrim’s path

    A day on a pilgrim’s path

    There are many pilgrim’s paths out there and probably most of you heard about the great Camino Frances, in Spain, which was the subject for “The Way” movie. Camino Frances has aprox. 800 km of walking from France, over the French Pyrenees, through the north of Spain and finishing in the city of Santiago de Compostela. […]

  • Ben-Joe & the Shipwreckers Night

    Ben-Joe & the Shipwreckers Night

    Yesterday we got lucky. A quick sudden invitation from our friends in Skövde and we found ourselves at Mike’s Pub where, surprise, there was a Ben-Joe & the Shipwreckers Night! We have tried to see these guys like three times before and we never managed due to all kind of factors. But finally, yesterday, we have been […]

  • NIKKOR AF-S 70-200mm f/4G ED VR – Go get them, now!

    NIKKOR AF-S 70-200mm f/4G ED VR – Go get them, now!

    I think I have ordered and cancelled these lenses like 5 times. They are not particularly cheap and I was not sure that I need them. I still have the Tamron 70-300 and I thought that is good enough. Well, I was wrong. Professional glass is expensive for a reason. I won’t be going to much […]

  • I went out again…

    I went out again…

    This time I was prepared, meaning that I had my fishing pole with me as well, thus I was more inclined to wait thorough the day for those perfect moments. And I think I got a few… moments I mean. I caught no fish, although I saw a few monsters breaking the crystal surface of […]

  • Gone, gone fishing…

    Gone, gone fishing…

    I love fishing. It is an activity that heals. Fresh air, the sound of water, the birds, the insects the, smells, they all just make me forget about everything. The act of actually catching a fish… It is not that important. And that is why sometimes I lose myself completely in the process of not fishing, […]

  • Stockholm – A trip in April

    Stockholm – A trip in April

    At the beginning of this month we went into a city-scape in Stockholm. It was a refreshing trip that convinced us that even if Stockholm is probably the most beautiful and clean city in Europe, we still prefer the countryside.

  • X20, Second Impressions

    X20, Second Impressions

    Awesome!!! I would really like to be able to say more than this, but I am way too enthusiastic right now. I am having too much fun!    

  • X20 vs D90 vs D7100

    X20 vs D90 vs D7100

    Ok, so, to be very clear, Fujifilm X20 is a camera from a totally different class than a DSLR. I mean yes, you can do great photography with it, but not  really at a semi or “professional” level. The technical requirements are not met. X20 sensor is tiny by comparison with an APS-C (not to […]

  • Fujifilm X20 – First impressions

    Fujifilm X20 – First impressions

    Light, sturdy, fancy, easy to use, excellent photos straight from the camera – this I think summarizes my impressions after the day one. I feel a lot more free, even if the technical quality of the photos is not the best. Actually, the fact that I don’t give a crap any more about pixels and […]

  • Always with a camera

    Always with a camera

    I was just reading that Henri-Cartier Bresson was having his Leica with him all the time. I wonder if that was actually bringing him more photos… Without being aware of this habit of his, I have done pretty much the same for the last 2.4 years. It started with me getting my first DSLR ever, […]

  • A bit of a winter

    A bit of a winter

    Until now, this winter was quite disappointing. I know there are a lot of “tips” on the Internet about “What to photograph in the winter?” , but what to do when the winter is like a late November, only with looong Swedish nights, cloudy days and 2 hours of light per day is not really […]

  • Monochrome Swedish Landscapes

    Monochrome Swedish Landscapes

    Black and white is not really how I see the world. While I do understand the fact that monochrome is able to relay a message or story much easier, due to the removal of the biggest distraction in a photo – the colours – I tend to photograph and publish pretty and colourful things. I […]

  • The Normal Extraordinary Individual

    We all like to have heroes. Heroes make us better, they give us something to aim for. And we all know that all heroes come with great life stories. But, like all heroic life stories, they fail to mention the bad deeds, those little things that make our heroes real people, normal people. I personally prefer to […]
