When it comes to photography I’ve always been an “all or nothing-guy”. At times I spend hours after hours just trying to get better, but at other times there can be 2 months without using my “normal” camera.
In autumn though, the feeling always gets me. The colors, the air and so on. Magic!
Yesterday I got up early to take some photos of Stockholm. The weather channel had promised a great morning, and they were right! Amazing.
Half of these images (the sunny ones) are without any post-processing (except lens correction), while the others are using a specifik preset that I’ve developed over the last months. The preset is based on a preset I downloaded from Trey Ratcliff. I like the atmosphere it brings to the photo.
Best wishes for a great autumn!
Two brothers is saying that Anders is their brother. Anders says that he has no brothers.
Who is lying?
This is a small project I had a few years ago. Summer in Stockholm
This is a quote that comes in many shapes. I’ve heard it in my professional carrier as “Where your mind goes, your energy flows”, but I guess this one is a more private one. Anyhow, I think that there is a lot of truth in these simple words.
The photo is taken in Vemdalen – Sweden
The day after New Year Celebrations in Barcelona, I walked around a silent Barcelona, and there was one image that really stayed in my mind.
This man; a few hours after thousands of people have surrounded him, cheering in champagne, launched fire crackers and so on, this man rested against a door. Alone.
He had his open can of olives, his shoes and a bottle of water. I just wondered, how did he end up here? Our world is getting better all the time (yes it is), and I really hope that no one, in a future not so distant will say there wishes for a new year, in conditions like this.
Two weeks ago I attended an entrepreneur conference in Italy. On my way back I shared a ride with three other entrepreneurs, and we decided to stop for lunch at a beautiful village on the shore of Lake Como. To be perfectly honest, this is one of the most beautiful places I’ve visited – ever!
What’s so strange, is that I passed by this place so many times before and never stopped. For everyone passing it, you should! Amazing with those misty mountains on the other side of the lake.
When two former gigants, or for that matter – still gigants among some age groups, come together to perform a song that’s been around for decades, there can be magic. In this case it sure was! What a version!
This year I spent New Years in Barcelona, a town that I’ve visited many times before, but it seems like I never get tired of it. I love the pace, which is like half the pace of Stockholm, which is perfect pace for spending spare time and relax from work.
What I haven’t experienced before was going to a home game with Barcelona, which was an awesome experience. In Barcelona football seems more like a religion, a way of belief, rather than a sport, and you sure can feel that in the arena. Barcelona had a really good night and beat Real Betis big time. However there are these “small” pieces of flavor that makes watching Barcelona so great.
The Spanish people are really good at living their life in the present, and New Years Eve isn’t any different. The party held on during the night, and many people went to sleep between 6 and 8 in the morning. This is what the streets looked like at 10 AM. 🙂
I hope you’ve had a great start of your 2016!
