The Swedish Club Music legend Christian Falk has passed away due to cancer, just 52 years of age.
For those that haven’t heard his great music, you’ll find a link to one of his albums – Quel Bordel here. Christian Falk has been a frequent topic on this blog. Both as a musician in the Swedish group Blacknuss Allstars, as well as for his great club music such as this song.
R.I.P Christian Falk
This is a photo of the Freedom Tower, taken from bottom viewing up. The shape of the tower almost makes it look like a pyramid when photographed from this position. Maybe the photo would’ve been greater with a blue sky, but at the same time, this is a place that calls for reflection and respect, so a damp milky sky suited quite well.
As I wrote in my first photo I tried out a few different kind of photo styles in these NY-photos. This one is kept really clean, trying to benefit from the situation.
This is a photo of the IRT Bridge in Harlem. We went to a close by steak house at a night with heavy showers (actually there were flood warning sent out), which created a perfect opportunity to benefit from the street lights, and the dark skies.
I’ve added some sharpening, cropped it slightly and lowered the blue a bit in Lightroom.
Last week I visited New York for some work, and while being there I also spent some time taking photos, so I thought that I would share some of them here.
It’s tricky taking photos of a city that’s been so well documented already, but I tried to find some new angles, and some new styles in the photos.
The first photo is taken at a long distance with a fast aperture to get it dark, then I pulled the aperture up afterwards in Lightroom. This created the grainy and foggy effect since all the details will not be seen. After that I added some sharpening.
What an amazing priest, and what an amazing voice!

I sometimes have a hard time with some/many of the prank it forward videos. The cause is good, but I don’t like that the subject has to be exposed so hard.
This video is different, since it’s a group of amazing people who are served a great evening with a lot of respect, by other amazing people who put this amazing eventing together.
