San Francisco – Architecture

This is a photo of one side of the famous “Cliff House”, an awesome place for photography since the sun sets right outside the restaurants window.

If you ever visit San Francisco, don’t miss out on this amazing place.

San Francisco And Vegas – Photos

During the last few weeks I’ve visited San Francisco and Vegas. Two amazing cities. San Francisco when it comes to being cozy, friendly and open, and Vegas when it comes to craziness. Not a bad “crazy”. More in terms of a place that doesn’t exist anywhere else in the world.

This will the first post in a series, of these great cities. I hope you enjoy.

Best wishes for a new week.

This week has been all about decisions.

Since I’m working with Active Decision Support, I have started to think a lot about decision processes; and how decisions are made – both professionally as well as private.

One thought that really keeps spinning is how many of our decisions/crossroads that we actually are passing/making all the time without noticing/knowing it, and how big these non-decisions really can be.

The photo is from a trip last weekend, to Gotland / Visby on a really foggy day.

One of the best time-lapse clips I’ve seen – Lake of dreams

On my bucket list, Burning Man is high up there. Seems like nothing else in the world. Over the years some good photographers have put together some amazing time-lapse videos from the event, but I think this is one of the best ever.

Look especially at those amazing long exposures of the night sky at 3:15!

Hope you enjoy the clip!

Beautiful City of New York

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.

Do You See The Face In The Cloud?

It was quite awhile ago since I posted any photos. At the same time, I’m having a little project at my Facebook-page with “One Image a week”. So I thought about this brilliant idea to use the at both my Facebook page, and here. 🙂

This photo was taken at lunch time this Saturday. I spent the weekend in Vemdalen, a ski resort in Sweden, and the wind during these days were hard, to say the least. This is taken at the top with an iPhone 5S.

What I enjoyed with the scene was the contrast between the wind and the sunny sky, at the same time as the snow passed by, creating those small white dots that almost looked like stars.

While you’re at it; do you see the face in the clouds?

Amazing Photos by Elena Shumilova

Earlier today I received a link on my facebook-page from a friend who suggested that I should visit Elena Shumilova:s amazing Flickr-page.

Elena is taking photos of her kids in different environments, and I don’t think that I’ve never seen anyone being so good at reflecting different moods.

Truly amazing photos! Don’t miss!

Piteå Through My Lens – Part 6 – Ekbergs Konditori

This is a classic place in Piteå, Ekbergs Konditori. This small café has been around during all of my years in Piteå. A place that looks just the same as it used to be. If you ever go to Piteå, don’t miss Ekbergs and their famous sandwich “Landgång”.
