Summer greetings from the swedish countryside

A couple of weeks ago, me and my oldest son took a trip to a small village in the swedish countryside.

On our way there, we found this beautiful clover field, and of course we had to stop and take some photos…

Isn’t Fuji Astia the most beautiful film ever seen? Creamy, smooth and soft, with full saturation and soft contrast…..

My absolute favourite film! Discontinued….. So very sad…..

This is from a beautiful village called Trosa. A river runs through the center of the village, and there is beautiful houses located along the river.

In another small village, called Gnesta, was a photo flea market and a small photoexhibition, more of that in a later post.

On our way back home again we found this fantastic barn, and of course, we had to stop again for photographing…

  1. Beautiful images, they represent everything I love about film. I recently bought a Hasselblad 500c to have some medium format fun!! All the best, Jason

  2. Lovely shots. It’s such a shame Astia is discontinued. Let’s hope the choice of film doesn’t reduce even more!

    • Thank you very much John!
      I’m not too worried about that, I think that the increased demand for film is good, it has been a tough time and that is not over yet, but I think it is gonna stabilize on a certain level, not as much as it was back then, but good enough, and it will still be lots of good films to choose from. But I would just love if somebody took up the Astia and rebranded it, that would be awesome!

  3. i mostly love your macro flower photos! i been trying to do this even with digital camera but never ever achieve such same result as yours! simply beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you ever so much for your kind words!
      Well, my digital macros weren’t very good either, I don’t know why, but suddenly it just gets right. I think the choise of film, for me anyway, has a lot to do with if the reults feels satifying or not. And one thing that really has got me going with macros is my Holga with the macrofilters on. Very unpredictable but so very sweet when they turn out good. That is, for me, a boost for my creativity! Good luck!
