I love Photography. I would even go so far and say that I am quite decent at it. But I am not a (real) Professional. At least not by my own interpretation of that Word. Today in the Woods. Being a Professional does not imply that a Photographer is good at what they are doing.… Continue reading Not a Professional.
A while ago, I found an old Stormtrooper Keychain in my old Legos. Ever since then, that Thing lives in or on my Backpack. Sometimes, it is also a lot of fun to take some Fotos with the Stormtrooper. And because everyone/ everything needs a Name, I started to call the Figure Beni the Stormtrooper,… Continue reading Beni the Stormtrooper.

Also, some Fotos just work better with a very clearly marked Subject, like a Car or something else that just stands out. Red Swedish Houses. That is… Continue reading Pops of Colour.
I love Nature. I also really enjoy Photography. And I am even happier when I am able to Combine those Things. That is a lot of fun.
