Friends, I hope you don´t expect me to publish a new blog every day. I can´t come up with that many ideas and I think you would think that was just too boring. I am happy to say that my absence has been because I have been busy with work. Something that is not too common among photographers these days. I am very pleased about that. Today I publish 3 images I made last Friday. We, a client and me, were reconoitering for a job on Monday. ( Hope that is the right word. I had to look it up. 😊😊 ) It was on a garden centre and it was heaven for me. Beautiful flowers, fresh and dated. I made these images very quickly but I could have stayed for much longer just to enjoy the surrounding. Lots of tools, wheelbarrows and much more that got my eyes, and cameras, attention. I hope to find more when we get there tomorrow to produce the images for the client.
I said I would show you some of my own toys that I have photographed. This is a small selection. I am so happy that my parents didn´t throw them away so that I could play with them again. Now infront of the camera as a grown up. Well, to the size that is…
Dinky Toys, Corgy Toys, I had them and I still have for the sheer joy of it. I have a big selection of cowboys and indians that I look through from time to time. Not so common in the toy stores today? Transformers, dinosaurers and Star War figures are more common I think. Sometimes I handpaint them to more realistic colors. Depending on what I should do with them.
To all of you out there, followers, visitors, readers and more, THANK YOU! You are my inspiration. I was recommended by a friend to start blogging. I didn´t know really what it was and I only had a vague idea. Until you try you no nothing, so I tried. It is something I really enjoy, and the contact with you inspire me. I read more articles about photography and photographers and I see what you do. As much as possible I try to visit your blogs to see what you are up to. What really strikes me is all that positive energy you have. Sharing all your tips and ideas for a better day, life. If we just could collect it and spread it over the world everything would be better.
As with everything else, it starts with ourselves. Let´s spread the word and the positive energy, and let´s hope it is infectious.
Some weeks ago Rechito wrote “You make the normal look beautiful!” Thank you!!! I am still feeding on that.
And now for some more images. This is work in progress. Hope to produce an exhibition in a not to far away future.
I would like to reblog this from Tommy Too since the thought is very interesting. We see different things looking at the same thing. All according to who we are and what our interests are.
I found these shapes, forms, patterns in Horten, Norway recently. Did other people also see the same things as I did?
I made these photographs some years ago, as you can see. Not knowing, or even dreaming, what was going to happen to the world. This is a series photographed with a small Minox 35mm camera, big as a cigarette box. Nothing special today, but back then it was. The series is all about Empire State Building. Seen from various positions in New York.
You can see that these projects, themes, that I am working on is not something new. Concentrating on a theme I try to see things from as many different views as I can.
Just as you press the button it becomes a thing of the past. Sometimes more than you can imagine.
I have not visited NY for many years. It would be great to go there again and to work on a new series.
This picture of Empire State Building is special. It was made leaning my camera against my shoe. Not knowing precisely what I was aiming at. This is one out of 5 exposures. People passing were looking at me wondering what I was doing.
Share if you care, thank you!
I have just started this project that I have been thinking of for a long time. Unique, no. But I will do it my way as usual. I have been looking, searching for gloves some time and I will continue to do that. To find the interesting gloves. The ones with a history. Again I am asking, looking for the history. Who used it, when and why?
Gloves are used for painting, gardening, in the garage etc etc. I find them in the streets. Sometimes. Some I have used myself. But wherever they have been used they have a story to tell.
They, the gloves, are often made for a specific reason, use. To stand water, gas or just to keep your fingers clean.
😊 Share if you care, thank you!
