Vättern Ice Harp

We went to lake Vättern to get a good look at some old abandoned buildings and hopefully get some nice light (as there usually is by big waters). These spikes were an unexpected bonus.

This was the first time I put the Eos M3 and EF-M 11-22 to use. I think it worked out great:-)

Now and then some animals end up in front of my camera, like this plover who really walked into the frame. Of course I couldn't resist the opportunity :-)

Black Friday

It's Black Friday today, so I give you a rather black photo :-) The photo shows a small part of the Great African Rift Valley, just as the sun settles. This is from Tanzania, by lake Manyara.

Yunyuanshi Pagoda

On Tiger Hill in Suzhou there is a magnificent pagoda on top. It was completed in the year 961 so it's been there for a while. I think it can be forgiven if it leans a bit, I think I would as well if I were more than a 1000 years old.

Longjing Tea Walk

2,5 years ago I was walking around the tea plantations outside of Hangzhou with a couple of colleagues. Very nice area with hills, tea plantations and a paved walk. We started off the whole thing with a nice lunch at a restaurant. Good local food!

Nelson

Long time ago since I put a cat up here, so let's do that now :-)

Nelson, he's our runaway cat. He's 1,5 years old and out of that time I think he's spent more than a third living away from home. He gets annoyed with things, especially other cats and moves to another place. It's not that far from home, like 800 meters or so, but he has to stay outside and doesn't get any food. So we go there, feed him and try to catch him, but he usually don't want to. We have managed to get him around 5 times. He stays home for a while and then he's off again.

Anyway, since last time I caught him, about 6 weeks ago, it seems something has changed. He wanders away to the other place to monitor his territory, but he comes home for sleep and food. Big improvement :-) Let's hope it stays that way...

Pearl and Glowing Balls

The Oriental Pearl is always a good photography subject. Add some Christmas lights to the mix and it gets very colorful :-) It's soon that time of the year again...

Autumn Shell

Fall colors are at their peak right now here in Sweden. The weather isn't very co-operative though, lots of rain. Friday evening I did get the chance to capture some of the beauty though, think it turned out great!

Winter in Old Linköping

As the city center of my home town Linköping got modernized in the 50:s and 60:s some people thought it was a shame to destroy all the old buildings. So, they started to move them into a "new" district, called "Old Linköping". They formed a small town of its own, looking the way a small town would have done in the 19th century. It's a popular tourist attraction and it has also been used in quite a lot of movies.

Of course, such a place is worthy of having a photo in a little more old style.

March Sixteenth

On my way to work and there's a fabulous fog. Just a short detour to get some nice trees into the frame. A couple of quick snaps and then on to work. Perfect start of the day!

Ok, I've become better over the years at handling heights, but this is way beyond my limit.

This is the view I had outside my hotel room this morning.

Going to Work

A very hot and humid July morning in Shanghai. I sneaked out a bit before going to office to get a couple of photos. It took the camera 10 minutes to adjust to the conditions outside (extremely humid...) and about 10 minutes for me to reach my limit for the weather. So, the number of photos was small, but I did think I got a good one here :-)

Posters

This pinboard is a bit cluttered, to say the least. But, what I do like about it is that three of the posters is about my photo exhibitions. One is for the just finished "Wildlife" exhibition at Neva Books in Rimforsa. There's also two new ones:
* "I vattnet speglas ljuset" at Lofta Caffé, open Fridays-Sundays 11:00-16:00 all through September.
* "I vattnet speglas ljuset" at Slottsgården, Vadstena. Open all days, but check their web site http://slottsgarden.se/ for hours. Starts at Vadstena Konstrunda September 9 and hangs there all the way until December 16.

Yep, it's all in Sweden!

Falling Apart

This is an old transformer tower, from the days when Sweden was getting electricity. The equipment couldn't stand the weather, so it had to be placed indoors. The country was full of these towers (I assume that's true for many other countries as well, I know quite a lot of them...), but since they really aren't needed any more a lot of them have disappeared and some of them are, like this one, barely standing.

I have a friend who collects photos of the towers, so this was taken on a trip with him.

Sparkling in the Street

(new try, this time with photo :-) )

Last Friday I took a walk around my home town Linköping with a couple of photography friends (hi +Robert Walter and +Peter Grew :-) ). Focus was a lot on street photography.

Colorful people in the streets are always good subjects for the camera!

Shanghai Street View

Going in taxi to the office in mornings, I'm always ready with the camera. You never know what will end up outside since the drivers usually go different routes. This morning we passed by what I feel is a more genuine Chinese side of Shanghai. Lots of people in the streets doing the morning chores. Still, it's mixed with a rather modern version of Shanghai as well.

Nadja at Hovetorp lock

Nadja is a piece of history. Not sure quite how old, but the first traces found in papers is from 1915, so she's at least 100 years old. We're a group of 7 families who maintain and enjoy her :-) Lots of work but it sure feels good when you get to go on that first ride of the year (and all the others...).

The Kinda canal goes from Linköping down to Rimforsa. It's also a piece of history that today is only used for pleasure rides, so they go well together!

Power Lines in Shanghai

Just returned from another visit to Shanghai. Stayed in a new area this time, next to the office. New surroundings to explore and photograph. Not much time to do that though and the weather really wasn't good for it either. Too hot (~33 degrees Celsius), frequent rains and very humid. The camera didn't like moving between air-conditioned indoors and a very humid outside :-(

Dragon Well Tea Plantation

Around Hangzhou there's a lot of tea plantations where the famous Longjing Tea (龙井茶) is grown, or as it's also known the Dragon Well Tea.

We had a nice walk during the area. Seem to be quite popular, we met a lot of people out there.

Light of the Orient

On Century Avenue in Shanghai, just next to Century Park is a big sundial, called Light of the Orient. I've been looking at this every time in Shanghai, and almost every day since it's on the way to the office. I've always been thinking that I must go there for some photos and on my last trip it actually happened.

I arrived when the sun was just starting to settle and left when it was dark, so I have the full spectrum of photos from daylight to night lights. Lots more to edit :-)

Fläsklösen Mist

My favorite tiny island, Fläsklösen, once again. This time in a misty monochrome view from last autumn. Enjoy!

Tianzifang Wall Painting

Tianzifang (田子坊) is an arts and crafts area in the French Concession. Lots of small shops, bars and restaurants. Really nice place to walk around!

No doubt to in which city this wall painting is :-)

Evening by the Lake

It's been a while since I was out shooting in Sweden, unfortunately it will probably not happen in the coming weeks either, since I'm overloaded at work and have a photo exhibition coming up. Oh well, that's problems I can live with :-)

Of course, you can always dig into the archives instead, so this photo is from late summer 2014. Enjoy!

Late Night Century Avenue

I got home from Shanghai yesterday and one of the good things about that is that I now can start digging through the photos. On Wednesday evening I took a walk to the Century Avenue / Dongfang Rd / Zhangyang Rd crossing. On my way back to the hotel I stopped to make a long exposure (25 s) shot down the avenue. Moving cars and a couple of scooters that moved into the frame created and interesting light show:-)

Choosing the Food

Today we went to Tianzifang, a small arts & crafts area in the French Concession. Lots of small shops and restaurants. Really nice place.

Not sure what the food was here but some of it looked like dumplings. Lots of it were in the shape of different animals.

Vättern Sky

Yesterday I delivered a couple of photos for framing (I do most of that myself, but some special ones I let others do). The place is very close to lake Vättern so of course I took the opportunity to use the camera. I spent a couple of hours climbing the cliffs, exploring new angles of this place that I visited a number of times before. There was a rain coming in, so the sky turned into a mass of different clouds. Perfect!

Playing in Amsterdam

On my way to China I often get a day to spend in Amsterdam. Long stays in airports usually is a bad thing, but at Schiphol it's just a short train ride and you're in the middle of Amsterdam. It's a great city for walking around, looking at architecture, people and enjoying some good food or waffles (love those :-) ).

Of course, if you like to use the camera it's also a good place for that. Looking into the small backstreets you can often find interesting motives. I love how there's often lots of plants in there, it looks quite cozy!

I took a long walk through uncharted (for me) territory in Shanghai last time. Here and there the pedestrian crossings are elevated over highly trafficked roads. Perfect spot for photography!

Driftwood by Vättern

Was out last weekend trying to get some nice grey views by lake Vättern but it turned out to be a little bit too sunny for my taste. With photos in black and white I did get what I wanted anyway, so I'm satisfied with the result!

Besides the photos it was really nice to be out in the nature focusing on something different than work, because it has been way too much of that lately.

Shanghai Street

I was walking around Shanghai on Monday, trying to get a little different angle on the famous buildings. To me this photo is very much Shanghai. The Santana taxi, the Oriental Pearl, the construction sites with bamboo scaffolding, the messy cables in the air. The list goes on ☺

On-the-road photo, so done with Eos M3 and edited in Snapseed.

Doris

For travel purposes (and also everyday camera that's always with me) I have a Canon Eos M3. Today I acquired the fourth available lens from Canon, the EF-M 55-200/4,5-6,3 IS STM besides the other 3 I already own. Of course I had to take a walk in the garden when I got home to see how it worked out. Doris acted as model, but not very willingly. She did not want to look into the camera...

The lens seems sharp enough, lightweight and easy to carry around. All in all I now have a camera body, an 11-22, a 22, an 18-55 and a 55-200 weighing in at a total of 1161 grams. Not a problem to carry around at all!

Píngguǒ Entrance

In Chinese the Apple brand is pronounced Píngguǒ (苹果), which is what you also call the fruit. Otherwise it is often common when translating western brands into Chinese to try to find characters that are pronounced as the western name, but still has a good meaning in Chinese. A good example would be Coca-Cola, which translated is Kěkǒukělè (可口可乐), pronounced about the same and if you translate each character you get something like "can mouth can fun", i.e. "fun to drink".

The Apple store entrance in Lùjiāzuǐ is an interesting piece of architecture and with the Oriental Pearl in the background it's an interesting photo subject.

Enough of the commercials, think I should get some money there from the big brands ;-)

Pearl by Day

The Oriental Pearl is mostly shown in evening photos when all the magic lights are on and it's really shining. But, it's a more than fabulous view by day as well. This photo shows a bit of the surrounding Lùjiāzuǐ area as well. The really tall skyscrapers are just behind me.

Hunting the Aurora

The Aurora Borealis is a phenomenon that can give really nice photos. A couple of evenings this winter I've been out trying to catch it. There are pages providing prognosis for when there likely will be an aurora, so you don't have to be out every evening hoping for the best.

One of the last days last year the prognosis was good, so a friend and I took a drive into the forests to find a good spot and wait. Well, we did find some good spots, but the aurora never showed up. We did get some good photos anyway and had lots of interesting conversations, so it was in no a wasted night anyway.

Those skyscrapers, now again

Every time I've been to Shanghai I've visited the Lujiazui area and the skyscrapers. Can't get enough of the futuristic look they have☺

This one is shot with the travel camera (Canon Eos M3) two days ago and then a quick edit using Snapseed on the tablet. Heading home tomorrow but will be back soon!

The Three Oaks

I've been passing by these oaks many times the last years. I've always though that I should make a photo of them, but have been waiting for the right occasion. One morning this winter there were some nice clouds and snow and I figured that the time had come. When I got close I realized that there was a bit of sun shining through in just the right angle. Perfect timing!

It's quite hard to get a good angle of these trees, this is about the only possible angle. Otherwise you will get a road, light poles (there actually is one in the photo), houses or a bus stop in the photo. Good that the sun was in exactly this position:-)

Tiger Hill in Suzhou is a hill with a famous pagoda on the top. On the hill is a number of historical sites and gardens. You can easily spend a day there walking around and enjoying the beauty. In a wall I found this window.

Vättern Ice Harp

We went to lake Vättern to get a good look at some old abandoned buildings and hopefully get some nice light (as there usually is by big waters). These spikes were an unexpected bonus.

This was the first time I put the Eos M3 and EF-M 11-22 to use. I think it worked out great:-)

Waiting for Summer

I found this chair on a beach in southern Sweden sometime in May last year. A bit too early to go swimming, as can be seen by the empty beach. It made a good foreground in the photo though, so I'm glad it was there :-)

With the winter we're having right now (above zero, no snow and a lot of wind) I'm really waiting for the summer as well. Bring it on please!

Sunsets in black and white is usually quite hard to do, at least if you want it to look good. Now and then I give it a try, it's a good way to learn the color to monochrome conversion process. So, what do you think about this one?
