I’m on vacation from my job as a photographer, but still at home as many might be this summer. A couple of days ago I took a trip over the day with my family to a garden a little bit north of Uppsala (the town I live in in Sweden) to a small old town called Österbybruk. There they have an old conservatory with gardens surrounding it. So beautiful with the old buildings and flowers, herbs and vegetables. Very inspirational both for photography and gardening.

On a rainy and quiet dark day around midsummer I revisited this allotment made into a meadow. So beautiful. I had happened to pass it a few days earlier on a sunny day but with no camera. Now the weather was changing to rainy and windy and I wanted to shoot some photos before the meadow lost it’s flowers in the wind and rain. It started raining just when I got there and I got som photos just in time. I love that the owner uses the whole of the allotment as a meadow with different flowers. Nothing else, not even a place to sit. But lovely with the blue and pink flowers. I will go back this summer to see if the owner is there and if the flowering changes during the summer. So hopefully to be continued…
The Azaleas and rhododendrons in full bloom the other evening in a garden on the outskirts of Uppsala in Sweden. All the bright colors surrounded by a calmer green garden making the colors just beautiful.
I’ve been playing around with my prints from the Print Shop and paired them two and two. It’s a lot of fun because it can change the feeling of the photo, it becomes something new. When pairing images you can think in colors, contrasting or in harmony with each other. You can think a theme, or a matching light. There are many ways to do it. I have small prints of all my work so I combine them in real life to see what I like. After that I combine them in photoshop. Here are a few of them all linked to the shop.
A few years ago, not that many, in the beginning of the summer I traveled to Napoli in Italy. On my third day in Napoli I and the group I traveled with went on a day trip to the Sorrento Peninsula and the tiny village of Massa Lubrense where we had lunch. The restaurant is Lo Scoglio. A family run restaurant where they grow all their own vegetables and get their fish and seafood in the ocean just outside the restaurant. The food and the surroundings I will never forget and this is what it looks like.
Autumn in Copenhagen. Beautiful sunny days and cold windy ones. All images apart from the first one is from the area in Copenhagen called Christianhavn. Copenhagen is wonderful in all kinds of weather and the first image is shot on Gothersgade. Continue reading
