A short walk along the river

Live music 2018-02-13

The talent show "Livekarusellen" has started for this year. Bengt (bengan) had taken the train from Stockholm up to Uppsala and we met up at the venue. This first evening was a bit short as four of the seven acts had to cancel because of flu or bad colds.

Neither of us have culled or edited our shots yet, but here are three teasers.







7 days in monochrome challenge

02 February 2019 - 05:03 PM

I was challenged to shoot one monochrome photo every day for a week on Facebook. I don't do those chain letter challenge things, but it got me thinking.


Let's do this as a standing challenge without a fixed start and end.

7 days, post one shot per day.

Monochrome photos of your everyday life, no portraits and no need to explain why.

Please post basic EXIF, so others can learn from the photos. If you want to share the conversion method and some settings, that would be super.


My idea behind this challenge is that learning to see light and composition gets easier by shooting for a monochrome output. By making it about your everyday life, we all get used to always have the camera available.


Feel free to do more than one 7-day period if you want to, this could be a nice exercise.

...of the year, that is. If you use the year in watermarks and your software doesn't change it automatically, remember to update your watermark so that you have it ready for 2019.

Another guitar build

This one will be heavily inspired by the Music Man Axis.


The headstock blank with an outline drawn and center-markers for the holes for the tuning machines.

The blank with the holes drilled. I will ream them to exact size later, when it is time to start assembly.
