Under my umbrella

20140822-204232.jpgYesterday I went into town with the intention of practice some street photography during the last day of Malmö festival (Malmöfestivalen). I walked around for a bit, bought a vegan burger and took one step to the right when the sky opened up and rain came crashing down. Lightning and thunder turned up from nowhere and this would probably have been a cool photo session if I hadn’t just bought food. Instead of strolling around and feeling the music I was being cosy under a itsy bitsy teeny tiny roof with 15 other people.

After about 20 minutes I went to the bus and after three stations I realised that this was the right number, but the route had changed and I did not end up where I intended to be.

Anyhow. Somehow I decided to walk home and go through the park. Good decision! It was raining a bit but the park was so green and with almost no people I think I got some pretty good shots. Although I think I have made some setting on my camera so the shutter speed is acting strangely (Seriously, my printer wont work, my computer is acting weird and so is my phone. AND now my camera?! Hey kharma where did you go? 😦 ). So annoying!

Here is just one photo I took with my phone. I’ll show some more another day.


When things start to break

My large laptop has been acting kind of strange for a couple of weeks, but yesterday also my printer all of a sudden started to give me error messages. During our 10+ years relationship this has never happened before! Maybe last weeks exhibition was just too much at once? Anyhow.

I suppose this is a sign that I need to get that purchase gallery up and running asap (I have been working with it for weeks, but as always I just want to to a liiittle bit more…).  And soon enough I will get myself a printer for A3!

Later on today I was thinking of going to Malmö Festival and practice some street photography (heaven knows I need it!) but it is so freaking windy outside and the sky is getting more grey by the minute (excuses excuses).

Oh well.

My first photo exhibition!

Two months has passed since my last blog post and the reason has been SUMMER! Wow, what a summer! I spent one month up in Lapland, with awesome weather almost every day. I was mostly in our summer house where the internet connection is none existing and the phone signal just slightly better. Therefore the bloging has been waiting for this day, a windy and rainy day after the first night sleeping with a thick blanket so I wouldn’t freeze.

Yesterday was also a really fun day for me. Last week I heard of a photo exhibition called Linan (the Line) which took place in Kungsparken (Kings park) and I attended. This week has been filled with work and preparation for this and I think it turned out really well! Strangely enough this actually was the very first time I’ve shown by photos in public. I’ve been showing them online for years in different scenarios, but never meeting the viewers face to face. It was very inspiring and I got great response! So many compliments. Sometimes I also just pretended to look and the pictures and listening to others discussing them.
