I’ve seen these photos on a number of sites on internet, but I’m not sure of its origin, so I don’t know who to link / credit. If you know? Please leave a comment so I can give credit to those who have created these great words / photos.

Contrasts – UK

As I’ve done for my last seven years, I’ve spent a week in UK.

This is a photo on my way back to the airport yesterday.

I enjoyed the view with the contrasts, the dark with the white. Which side did you catch first?

Stockholm – January

As those who follow this blog a little bit more in detail, you might have figured out that I like “clean” photos, in the sense of straight lines, and not to many disturbing objects. But sometimes it’s interesting to go in the absolute opposite direction, to take photos with many details, but still have interesting lines and perspective. A photo with many details also have the benefit that you’ll find new details every time you look at it.

In this photo I’ve tried to achieve just that. I tried to have the roads as the lines, and the opening at the right attracts the eye at the end of the little road. The girl with the dog keeps the rule of thirds intact and so on.

What are your thoughts around Clean, or detailed photos?

Manything – Use Your Old iPhone As A Home Surveillance Kit

A few weeks ago I discovered an app called Manything. It’s an app that uses an iOS-device camera as a Surveillance Camera.

The installation process is really easy. You just install the app on the device that you’re using, and on the device (-s) that you want to use as the surveillance cam, and off you go.

When Manything starts you can connect to the “surveillance phone” and watch a live stream, but not only that. Every time a person moves in front of the cam you can have a signal sent to you, together with a clip of what the cam “have seen”.

This must be one of the easiest download-decisions if you have an old iPhone or an iPad lying around at home.

Best New Spotify-Tracks 2014

I’ve put together this list during the last 15 minutes and I guess I’ve missed out a great number of equally great tracks, but I’ll try to update the list when something that I’ve missed out comes to mind. Do you have any other suggestions? Leave me a note! :)

Best Wishes for a great ending of 2014, and a sparkling start of 2015!
