6th of June Horse Race

Yesterday was national holiday in Sweden and the annual horse race at Gärdet. A huge recreation field here in Stockholm. The track that is rebuilt every year at this place is not flat as most other tracks. I think that the jockeys like it. The weather was sunny and there was a huge audience that were allowed in for free. Here is my selection from my 1148 exposures.

Nonsens?

Compared to the wonderful and important images I wrote about yesterday by Nick Brandt, these are just nonsense. But, they had to be made, I think. They are from Diani Beach, Mombasa and from last week. I am not so much for sunbathing so I rather keep to the shadows. Going on my own short walks exploring the surroundings. Looking up, but mostly down 😉

Sad and/but beautiful

After just returning home from 10 days in Kenya, these images are very sad to see. But they are also very beautiful. But of course it would be more beautiful if the animals could be seen in these places live. See and read more on BBC.

Nick Brandt built lifesized panels depicting Africa’s great creatures and placed them in scenes where they used to roam. The resulting photographs serve as a potent reminder of what poaching and climate change put at stake. © Nick Brandt.

More water

Seconds after looking at those wunderful waves, here is more water that I just discovered. Through another photographers lens and they look so different. But just as amazing. I think. See the slide show for more images.

The Japanese photographer Toshio Shibata is fascinated by water — in particular, the way it interacts with man-made structures. For the later half of his almost-40-year career in photography, he has explored this relationship in novel ways, hiding horizon lines and taking the perspective of the water itself with his camera, visually evoking its rushing sound.

Each of Shibata’s photographs depicts a different kind of human intervention in the natural movement of water, many of them the kind of mundane engineering projects we rarely think about. “To me,” Jacob Cartwright of Laurence Miller Gallery, which recently opened a show of Shibata’s work, said via email, “the essence of his work is taking ubiquitous yet frequently disregarded parts of our contemporary landscape and transforming them into something visually uncanny through formal invention.”

A life for you?

Are you like me? Living a city life with TV, radio, internet, smartphone etc. Look at this! This is about another life, in another part of the world. Close to nature, very close.

A life for me? No! I admire Slava, but no. Thank you. Just looking at the beautiful photographs is fine.

Slava Korotki is a meteorologist who lives in Khodovarikha, northern Russia, on an Arctic outpost that’s an hour away by helicopter from the nearest town. Photographer Evgenia Arbugaeva grew up in the Arctic, and happened upon Slava living in the past. She spent three weeks shooting him as he worked, rowed his homemade boat and built matchstick houses in an Arctic timewarp

Sunflowers

Come rain or shine, the sunflower is a beautiful flower whatever weather or state. I was lucky to be back in the garden yesterday and got some time to photograph more flowers waiting for my clients/models. Just as beautiful from the “other” side.IMG_0886 IMG_0899 IMG_0904 IMG_0910 IMG_0920 IMG_0930 IMG_0932😊  Pelle

Long time no see

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.
