If You Want To Know Where Your Heart Is

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


A history of the Sky

This is a quite awesome project from “Murphlab”, with a camera directed towards the sky and each day is represented with it’s own square.

More information about the video:

This is a year-long time-lapse study of the sky. A camera installed on the roof of the Exploratorium museum in San Francisco captured an image of the sky every 10 seconds. From these images, I created a mosaic of time-lapse movies, each showing a single day. The days are arranged in chronological order. My intent was to reveal the patterns of light and weather over the course of a year.

This video is designed to be viewed in a large format, so it’s best viewed in full-screen mode at 1080p.

Last day of golf – part 2

With a sun set high, and skies as blue as a typical Swedes eyes, we went out on our golf journey last wednesday (as I posted a few days ago). But.. suddenly the weather changed and a really thick fog made it’s entrance over the golf course. If you, like me, enjoy both golf and Photo this is just an amazing opportunity and I actually enjoy the photos more from the afternoon than from earlier on during the day.

My idea behind this photo was to portrait the difference between the different stages in life – the two girls eating, and the woman and the man sitting on the bench – are in.

I tried to use a different composition where I kept the pole as a separator between the two couples.

Free app – Burst mode

Maybe you have tried to capture a golf swing or fast flying object with your mobile cam. I guess you sometimes missed that opportunity due to the (compared to your DSLR) slow camera.

Burst mode is an app that takes multiple shots and you can then choose which one’s you wanna save. Quite handy sometimes.

The app used to cost $2 but now it’s free (for a limited time?). A little app to try out during your weekend walk? (Btw, do you notice the slight optical illusion on the right pic?)

Autumn signs – iPhone pic

Since today was the big launch day for what many of us thought to be iPhone 5, and we instead got the iPhone 4S where the main feature seems to be, besides better battery and faster processor, a better Camera with 8MP, I thought it might be a good idea to put up a pic with the current cam.

What do you think of the new iPhone? Disappointment or exactly what you were waiting for?
