Kungsportsavenyn - Flickr Photowalk

This was the first real photo walk with the newly founded Flickr group Gothenburg Photo Walks. I went with David, Eva and Leo. The theme for this photo walk was to capture the monuments found on Gothenburg's main street Kungsportsavenyn in a way they are not seen on the typical postcard. We had a lot of fun and shot away like crazy on the first object, seen in the image above. To find out more about the owner of foot click here.

Eriksberg Documentary

Everyone in Gothenburg knowns about the exclusive and newly built water front appartment complexes at Eriksberg, the north shore of the river running through the city. The old shipping industry area, extremely successful during 100 years until the late 1960s, is now turning into something totally different. These images reflects on the other side of the coin, the back streets and some old remains from the successful era.

I was hunting a good spot to create images of the sun setting in the a lake close to where I live. There were too many private properties blocking the places I was hoping to access, so I settled for Ötjärn, a small lake near by. I need to scout better before I go out next time. Most images was shot on ISO 800 to compensate for the low light in the late our. I brought my D300 body with the Nikon 70-300 mm VR lens and the D70 body with the Tamron 17-50 mm. Bringing both bodies made it very easy to get the focus length I needed, but a bit of weigth to carry.

San Diego Floorball

While cleaning up my photo archive I found photos from my floorball adventures in San Diego, that I've fortgot to publish. Floorball is a typical Scandinavian sport, introduced in San Diego by the Scandinavian community.I guess this post is my way of saying "Thanks for all those years of fun and see you guys next time we're in San Diego". Also, thanks for letting Eric play with you guys. Click here to see the complete set of photos. Press F11 to maximize the experience.

Delsjön and Kvarnbyn

OK, I'm now back in Sweden after a few crazy weeks in San Diego wrapping up all our stuff over there. This Sunday I decided to do a photo outing to get away from all the crazy moving activities. I went to a nearby lake, Delsjön, and the old mill at Kvarnbyn, also close to where we live. I thought this photo would represent summer and relaxation. :-)
Lake Delsjön is a beautiful recreation area for all kind of activities, including photography. There are endless possibilities, which of course varies over the seasons. Look out for photos from future outings there.
At Kvarnbyn you will find an old mill, currently hosting a number of companies in various industries. You will also find a pretty good restaurant and some shops. It's a really nice area.

Coronado island, CA

Did a photo walk last night with my two photo friends Delphine and Phil. The goal was to capture the San Diego skyline by night. We decide to shoot the sky line from the Coronado Ferry Landing. We also took the opprtunity to shoot the Coronado bridge in daylight and some night photography close to the famous Coronado Hotel. We were also lucky to see the fireworks from Harbour island. There will be much more impressive fireworks today on 4th of July.
We played a lot with the white balance settings to get a nice color of the sky. We had different views of which color of the sky that was the "correct" one, so it will be fun to see how they set their cameras and what the outcome was. I used both my 70-300 mm and my 17-50 mm lenses. I used various ISO settings, from 200 to 1000 depending on the current light and my expected outcome. To view the complete set of photos click here. Oncce I have the links to Delphine's and Phil's photos I will ad them to this post.
