Rainy Evening

In the rain - Street Photography
The year started exactly like last year ended, with rain. ;)
I often go out after dark  and try to find something different. Lately this has not been easy, due to the utter lack of light. People shun the light sources and make it even harder to get anything interesting so I haven’t been out as much as I hoped.

The above is shot with my trusted little Panasonic GX1, on a dark and rainy evening as I was out getting a cake for my birthday. ;)

Stop and Look

Stop and look - Lisbon Street Photography
Streets of Lisbon in 2012.

Lisbon is one of those cities I fell in love with almost immediately. I love the way the streets were paved, the light, the colors and the friendliness of the people. I will be back ;)

Skaters in action

Skaters in action - Street Photography
A summer´s day and two skaters are having fun.
I’m very partial to harsh shadows so I tend to take these shots in the afternoon as the sun is low but still gives me strong lines between shadow and light and long shadows from the subjects, like from the skater above.

Avenyn Light trails

Avenyn Light trails - Long Exposure Photography

Following my decision to do more Long exposure shots of my Hometown and try to do something with our trams. My project of shooting my hometown, starts with capturing light trails on the Avenyn (the avenue/main boulevard in the city) with trams as the source of light trails.

Shot in December 2014 so we have a lot of Christmas light on the street.

17B - Street Photography

17B – A Street scene from Gothenburg, Sweden. People are saying that we spend too much time with our phones today, and little time is spent talking to other people. As if that was more so before the introduction of smart phones. I remember how I used to spend my time staring into a book, magazine or the daily paper. I didn’t converse strangers more than I do today. One thing I can say, I read more than I do today. ;)

Goteborg Tram

Goteborg Tram - Black and white Photography
Today I went out for a photowalk. It’s raining today so I thought I would catch some reflection shots from the traffic or just something cool. Once I got out it was a little windy so I decided to continue with my “Tram Project”, trying to do something with our trams we have in the city. Experimenting with long exposure mostly. It was dark and rainy.
The shot above is one of the shots I took this afternoon. A Long Exposure of a Tram passing by ;)

October Selfie

Night Photography - Selfie
Me on a dark October night.
I have to confess, as soon as the winter, the cold and the darkness arrives in this Northern hemisphere my creativity takes a leave. So if I don’t have anything else to shoot…I have to do selfies.
When I do the selfies it’s about the lack of other people in the frame, so I have to put myself there.
A few weeks ago I went out with a friend to shoot a sunset, but we never got out in time to see the sun set. So this is one of the shots I did, a long exposure selfie. ;-)

It’s not easy to frame yourself in the shot.
