My choice

Yesterday the 6/6 was our national holiday here in Sweden with the annual horse racing at Gärdet, Nationaldagsgaloppen. The sun was shining and people came with blankets, picnic and wine. Or just water. It was a warm and hot day. I think the jockeys enjoyed themselves competing much closer to their audience and fans. There are not so many races on grass, so I like this, and dirt track is mostly not enough dirty …

Here is my selection from the exciting day. 😊 🏇 ☀️  Pelle

Same same, but always different

I see mostly the same jockeys and the same horses, but it is never ever the same. The weather changes, and my angles. And everything else. Some of my images are not about racing but still lifes/details from the horses or jockeys. It is a colorful and very exciting sport! The owners and trainers often pimp their racing darlings. Now I am looking forward to a dirty dirttrack, AND a couple of exhibitions with my images. Exciting!   From yesterdays races at Bro Park.      😊🏇😊  Pelle

The Met Celebrates Irving Penn, Revolutionary Photographer

They do, and once again I wish I had all the time in the world just going around enjoying exhibitions. Together with Avedon and Albert Watson he is one of my absolute favorite photographers. Over the years I have got so much inspiration from his work. The frozen fruits, cigarette butts, flowers, the backdrops and SO MUCH more. Recently we have been fortunate here in Stockholm to see his work at Åmells. What more could a photographer my age ask for? 😊  Pelle

2017-04-24 at Bro Park

A selection from yesterdays races. Sun and snow coming down. It started off not good, as my camera didn´t expose more then one image at the time. After some time of intense problem solving I managed to get it working as I would like it to. There are so many things to choose when you are setting up an advanced digital camera. It ended up OK after all, and once again I learned about preparations. Especially with a new camera.  You are never too old to learn…

No Promises!

When I go to a horse race to photograph I make no promises. Not to me or anyone else. No promises that my images should be sharp, show what horse or jockey, or anything. I go there with total freedom for creating and I don´t  listen to nobody. Surprise me! That is all that I say to myself. Because of that I don´t really know until afterwards in the studio what I brought back. Is it useful and did I surprise myself. Do I like it? At the bottom I have included two of my friends and colleagues. Wolfram and Elina.See you on Sunday again.

Only two images are cropped…

This is a small selection from yesterdays 979 exposures. The one at the top is my favorite.
