The youngster

Years ago we had a garden full of birds. A large variety came to the feeders. The Great Spotted Woodpeckers brought their young to the poles I installed and charged with peanuts. Then the Magpies moved in and every thing changed. They constantly raid the feeders and rob the nest of eggs and youngsters.
This young male woodpecker is from happy years.

Field of gold

Field of gold
It should just have been the typical Swedish Easter with spring in the air, but nature has it’s own way and snow covered the countryside. Roads became difficult to drive on and the field where we saw hay made in summer became a sheet of gold as the sun set.

Where Moose and Wild Boar roam
Lately I have been going over my old files. Yesterday I was looking at my work from 2005, I was then using my first digital Nikon, a Nikon D70. Today it would be considered hopelessly antiquated with a low pixel count and poor dynamic range, but I am very happy with this result. What is the famous saying about the best camera is …..
This image was photographed on one of our wonderful holidays in Sweden, far away from the maddening crowd.

A day in London Town

London Town
I do love going to London. For various reasons my wife and i have not been able to visit for a couple of years, so the next best thing is to look at photos from previous visits. This is from Piccadilly Circus looking down Regent Street to the column with the Duke of York perched on top. The Palace of Westminster is in the background. It was a typical London day in 2008 and the light in the sky appealed to me. http://www.thelostphotographer.dk

 

Copenhagen Central Station

I like photographing at stations. They are so full og geometric shapes. I like the shining rails curving away from the platform, knowing that they stretch continuously to so many cities and towns. I enjoy seeing the arriving and departing passengers and their different personalities.

In passing

While the hairdresser beautified my wife, I walked around in our little town playing with my Nikon D750. I have had it for about a year, but I have still got a lot to learn about it. Among the things I tried was the manual setting. The last time I tried that was, with my Nikon D700, several years ago in London. It may well have been my imagination, but I could swear that I got better results that way. I set the camera back to aperture priority (my normal setting) and wandered about photographing streets, buildings and people. Close to the station I came across this scene. Back home I converted it to black and white and quite liked the result. At one stage I was very keen on street photography with people in the picture. NO MORE. I believe, that the photographer can tell strong and compelling stories about people by showing where they live or lived and the artefacts they have left behind. Still I liked this on, so I am sharing it here

A cold day in Copenhagen

It was cold in Copenhagen the other day. The benches on the City Square were deserted, but the pigeons made good use of warm air from a ventilation shaft
