New York, Manhattan

Hi,

In my aim to get this blog up and running again I have decided to start with this image. A well known landmark from New York. The Empire State Building. During frequent visits many years ago that was my main subject for my photography. This is one of the images I like the most. It was not made in an ordinary way, let me tell you. It is no secret. I tripped my small camera, a Minox 35, on my foot. Like this illustration below. It was late afternoon and I needed to steady my camera. People passing by was looking at me wondering what I was doing, though this was NY. Nothing surprises. This was the result from four exposures, I think. I think I could not have made it better aiming with my hands and eyes. Or, what do you think? Without metadata on my film I think it was during the late 70´ or early 80´s.

I Love Paris in The Springtime

Well, who does n´t? I have just spent a few in the city attending the Gourmand World Cookbook Summit. Spring happened to be there too. Always inspiring. Of course I managed to get some pictures from the Eiffel Tower.  Here is a small selection for you.

Only one image is made with my phone…

It has been too long since I last wrote here and showed some images. It will not take that long before next time. More from Paris coming up.

It is not always as you think it is…

How a Galway Pub Led to a Skyscraper

A friend just sent me this article about another classic image many thought, for good reasons, was made by Hine. A great story. He found it in The New York Times.

Been there, done that

But, every year there are different artists and a new look, so today is not as before. Go there for an almost once in a lifetime experience. I will be back with my images from my visit soon. Article from The Guardian. 😀  Pelle

Founded in 1989, the Icehotel in Swedish Lapland is built from the snow up each year, using ice from the local river. The rooms are designed by international artists and this year feature spacemen and an ice queen

Top image:  The hotel has 35 suites, featuring ice carvings designed by 36 different artists from 17 countries. Queen of the North (created by Emilie Steele and Sebastian Dell’Uva) is one of the more intense rooms, with the bed surrounded by the head and hands of an icy goddess.

 

The Art of Building 2017

Some really amazing photos! Again, from BBC.

The Art of Building is run by the Chartered Institute of Building.

Twelve finalists have been chosen from this year’s Art of Building architectural photography competition. From abstract details to abandoned buildings, here are the chosen images.

The top image: Mehmet Yasa’s photograph is called “the eye of the tower” due to his ingenious positioning of the staircase and bell in this tower in Verona, Italy.
