My new fling – A bokehlicious lens!

Inspired by some of for me new groups on Flickr, and what appears to be “in vogue” right now, I found for next to nothing on Ebay this old Russian lens with M42 mount. Adapters which allows you to connect the lens to your desired camera is also available for a song on Ebay. Incomparable is the bokeh that can be achieved! But because in Sweden we have not yet spring and there is still no fresh spring green, I chose to photograph with black and white film, making the images more abstract than they would have been with color film.
I look forward to future adventures with this lens (and even a Zenit E that I also bought almost shamefully inexpensive at the same time) and some spring sunshine and rich greenery.

Until then, enjoy 🙂

To the human love found in the darkness in Stockholm 2017-04-07

This is NOT a political blog, nor am I a political person, but today I just can´t help myself from writing what touched me so deeply yesterday during and after the attack of my hometown Stockholm.

In the middle of those terrible hours, people of Stockholm opened up their homes and hearts for those who could not get back home because all the communications where down. Those in need became invited to share meals and a place to stay during the night. Everybody gathered under the hashtag #openstockholm.

I’m so proud of this human power to find love and strength when needed!

And my little  image to you all is just a way to say;

In the total darkness, there is always some love, strength and beauty to be found!
