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…
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
Thank you very much for your visit and kind words Jason!
Congrats to your new camera, I wish you all the luck, it is a great one!
Beautiful colours! You really know how to make one want to pick up the camera and leave the office (and the city).
Hehe, isn’t that wonderful??
Thank you very very much! 🙂
Absolutely gorgeous shots!!
These are so great!
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!
Beautiful countryside, gorgeous clover, super wheat shot – all great! So different from the landscapes that surround me.
Thank you very much Sue! I feel the same about your photography, so different and wonderful! It is very inspiring to see those differences.
Gentle images with muted colours, my kind of images! A day to be treasured with your son.
Thank you so much James! 🙂
Yes, that was a great day, and Astia was the right choise for the day, Kodak Ektachrome was not as good for that kind of light.
Very nice pics from clover field and others too
Absolutely stunning work. Beautiful scenes photographed wonderfully.
I really enjoyed looking at these!
Thank you very much Phil! Your kind words are much appreciated!
Beautiful photos, I really enjoyed this post ! The last photo is my favourite !
A happy sunday to you !
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 🙂
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!
I love all of your film photos! Amazing! 🙂
THANK you very much for your kind words, likes and following, most appreciated!
You’re welcome 🙂 It’s my pleasure
