Lake Como – Italy

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.

Photos from Barcelona – New Years Trip

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’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.

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?
