Could be…

Perhaps there will be a calender for the year of 2017. My friend Peter Schäublin, of Schaffhaussen, Switzerland and I have produced one every year since 1998. Missing only two years. Peter is an exceptional graphic designer, and a photographer himself. These are the first outlines.

Images from my “Used gloves collection”.

What do you think?

Again and again and now again

I went to the track today again. I am having trouble staying away. I meet so many talented and nice photographers every time, and I learn so much that I never knew before. Or even thought about. It is exciting, never the same. But it is getting colder. For horses, jockeys and the audience. This morning it was 0 degrees and there were frost also in the city. Brrrr! I wonder how the jockeys keep warm during the races? Some were not even using gloves. I have heard that this is also a winter sport. Brrr, again! The jockeys are so short and small but oh SO strong. You see them more standing than sitting during a race, and often almost without rest they change clothes/colors and horse and they are off again. Supermen AND women!

If I remember right the next race is an evening race. Colder and darker, much darker. It will be all lights around the track. A real challange for photographers at maximum ISO. Today I have also recorded sound. Hope to use it with some images soon.

Work in progress

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.

FYI

Today I stopped and picked up the black glove that I have been seeing in Sveavägan for many days. I finally did it. It has been run over by thousands of cars during rain and shine. A woman walking her dog was looking very suspiciously at me. 😉 Other gloves are coming in from friends. I will let you know how it all develops.

No, the black glove is not included in this blog.

The start of something old

IMG_0027I 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?

IMG_0030

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.

IMG_0035Builders using concrete use gloves. Of course!
