Fall at the woodland lake

Took a walk the other day around a woodland lake near our house to capture the fall colors. It was "hard to resist" not going as the weather was wonderful, pretty much summer temperatures and I actually felt a "need" to make photos, something that sadly doesn't happen too often these days. I even brought out my Nikon SLR with the "big lens" and the tripod, not just my handy Sony Nex-6, which have been an easy-to-bring-photo-friend lately - maybe too easy. All seven photos can be viewed here. Enjoy!

Closing day at Liseberg

The summer season came to an end (in early October is just crazy!) at the local amusement park Liseberg, so the family decided to enjoy the summer like weather, have a dinner, a few roller coaster rides (not me though) and watch the fireworks. I took the opportunity to make a few low light photos, this time with my Sony Nex-6. Handheld and mostly with the 55-210 mounted. I even shot a few videos, which doesn't happen too often. All 25 photos and two videos can be viewed here. Hold on as we take off.

Fender fun

Spent Saturday enjoying an awesome gig by Jelly Belly's at the River Café in the evening and Fender exhibiting at the Fuzz guitar show earlier that day. 

Was challenging my Sony NEX-6 in the low light, but I think it stood up to my expectations pretty good - just as Fender and the band did. Not something I do very often, but I even gave the NEX-6 video feature a shot when Jelly Belly's kicked-off their gig. Watch the video first and then the photo slideshow, or just the individual photos.

Thanks Fender for a great day!!

Mats' Gift Wrap Vernissage

We where invited to Mats' Gift Wrap Vernissage, which also included a Jazz consert with Lars Jansson and his son. Mats' artistic skills are amazing. He always surprises us one way or the other, no matter if it is clothes, food, gift wraps or just having fun together.

All photos are taken with my Sony NEX-6, with no flash and no tripod. Ultimately I had made the photos prior to the vernissage with better equipment, but it is always an interesting challange to capture the moment live. There is some noise due to the high ISO (3200), but I think it works pretty well with the environment and the mood of the event. However, and external flash is on the wish list and might soon becomre a new member of my photo toy collection. Who knows.
