District of Södermalm

This week I’m hanging out in Stockholm Sweden on a work trip so the days I spend in Solna south of Stockholm on a course. However, the evenings I try to do something yesterday I vistaited the museum of photography and walked around old town and the castle. Tonight I had dinner at Södermalm and SoFo. It’s a chill and hip district and I think is valued as one of the coolest districts in the world. And it’s cool and very different from a lot of other places I’ve visited. Trying to take photos and to instagram and blog.

Spa Weekend with G

This weekend I’ve been hanging out with my girlfriend G on a spa on the Swedish west coast which is a Christmas gift from my mom to us.  So we have been in the spa and in the restaurant mostly and had a great weekend but I haven’t hade the camera or my iPhone with me for pretty much all of the weekend witch might be the most relaxing thing about this weekend but we took a walk along the water this morning and then I hade my Leica T I just couldn’t skip to upload a few of these photos here on the blog.

Enjoy!

Night sky Photography

Here is a photo from the little photoshoot I had Saturday night in Dalsland.

  

Weekend in Copenhagen

Have been trying to post this for a while now but today I finally got some pictures in from the trip into this post. This is about the weekend in Copenhagen two weekends ago.

It’s was a great weekend in Copenhagen for me and G. We arrived rather late at Friday evening and checked in at the hotel and then went out for a short walk and got something to eat. In this case it was a classic red Danish sausage.

Saturday started off by breakfast and then we got ready for the baptism of some friends daughter in Lund, Sweden. Took the train to Sweden which where very easy to do and worked perfect an took less than an hour. The baptism where beautiful and it where a traditional Swedish baptism in the church and afterward it where some Coffe and cake and we got to socialize with our friends. After that we had a short walk in Lund and had some lunch.

After that we headed back with the train to Copenhagen and Denmark. For a little walk in Copenhagen and then some dinner at the restaurant Madklubben Bistro-de-lux. Then the day where pretty much over since both me and G where rather tired after the day.

Sunday where mainly a shopping day but also to walk around a little bit. After that we headed out to the airport and did some tax free shopping and just relaxed until our flight for Oslo left. A great weekend where we visited all Scandinavia countries.

Great weekend and really like Copenhagen so would like to go back soon again. Then I hope to write some reviews of restaurants and so on as soon as I get the time and post them here on the blog.

By the way I nerver thought I would say this but I love Copenhagen.

Trying to be a better photographer

I’m no professional even if I would like to be but I’m trying become as good as possible. So I’m regularly reding for advice and good tips in books and at blogs. Do you have any good blogs, YouTube channels or books to suggest. As you can see I bought a new book this weekend in order to get some tips and try to get better.

Time magazine is a fact a good source of inspiration but I also like the read it a lot.

Shopping Sunday in Copenhagen

Yesterday where the last day of my trip in Copenhagen and the only day that I in fact spend the most of the day in Copenhagen. We had a flight that left first that evening so we got some time in Copenhagen. It’s a beautiful city. The plane where to take a walk and se some sightseeing spots but the weather where very windy and also had some rain so we started the walk but cut it short and went shopping at the shopping street Strøget and in the neighborhood around it. Strøget is apparently the longest shopping street in Europe did I learn today. If my sources are correct is it this with a length if approximately 1100 meters.

I found two t-shirts from the Danish clothing brand Samsø & Samsø that I really like and a little photography book at Urban Outfitters.

Also looked for some cloths for G and found some stuff and &other stories.

We where also in some other stores but it where her we did some shopping. Then we had lunch at a Italian restaurant that I will write a restaurant review at as soon as possible.

After that we took a nice walk by the water back to the hotel and picked up our bags and headed out to he airport where we ate some and did some more minor shopping.

Tuesday weather

Today where the first time in a few days where I went to work in nice weather. That’s just a great way to start off the day. Everything get so much easier when it nice weather.

After work I went for a walk with so where out almost one and a half hour. Nice to just walk around a see the city.
Also rather nice weather during the evening walk. Here are some photos from the walk today.


Sunday walk

Yesterday evening I took a walk here in Oslo in the beautiful Sunday weather that apparently are long gone today. However was it an beautiful evening last night while I walked the the Frogner park and took some photos. Just with my iPhone but anyway.

That was just what I needed. Here is some of the photos, enjoy.




Sunny Sunday Skiing

Sunday and the weather has been great here in Oslo so rather early me and G got out of the apartment and went cross country skiing out in Songsvann here in Oslo. Same route as I did alone last Saturday but the weather was much better today and nice to have company. Skied 11 km today and very pleased with that.

Have a lot of energy today and where beautiful out in the woods today. That is probably one if the things O learned the most from living in Norway to get outdoors and out in the wood. It has also awaken an interest for cross country skiing that I never really had at this level earlier. With that I done day I’m very good but I think it’s a lot of fun.

Photos from this lovely day.
