Is it…
– your phone?
– my phone?
– iPhone or Android?

…no it’s the changing room for Superman!

Scottland calling

In the high street in Edinburg it is still possible to make a phone call should you have lost your smart phone :-)

Windows Reflections

No, it’s not the latest version of the Microsoft Operating system.

This particular one is just a set of nice old windows, typical for the south west area of Sweden, where I happen to live. It’s Christmas Day and we wanted some outside fresh air. It’s plenty of that here by the ocean next to wonderful Kullaberg.

Shooting night photography

I finally got around to do it. And I’m not regretting it.

It was not that i didn’t want to. It was just hard to find the time. When i har planned to do it the fist time I go had to cancel it due to too much work. This time I almost cancelled for the same reason and for being deadly tired.

– I still did it. I drove my car to Gothenburg, checked in at the hotel, was extremely tempted to take a shot of whisky, turn on the tv and just doze of to sleep and skip the whole thing. – But I didn’t. I called for a taxi and I went downtown Gothenburg for shooting night photography.

It was worth it!

After a short theory lesson on the street outside the central train station. We took off and hiked up the nearest bridge “G√∂ta√§lvbron”. First lesson was to shoot street with cars where the car lights turned in to lines.  I believe that I passed the test:

(Camera settings with exposure time roughly at 20-30 seconds, aperture F8-F12 and ISO 100 (occasionally up to 400) was the common theme).

Next challenge was to capture an “orb” in the runway to an underground garage:

Like many things – not hard to do at all if you know how ūüėČ

Some surrealistic shots using led lights and a torch light:

The “actor” is one of my “student” fellows in this night shoot photo training – he did a good job. Looks almost like something from “Tomb Raider” video game or similar, don’t you agree?

Next thing to try was to capture some futuristic night fire. That worked pretty well too.

You simply can’t go to Gothenburg city center by the water and not visit the statue of the song writer Evert Taube, one of Sweden’s most respected musicians in the 20th century. The statue is posing on the water side of the opera house.

After this session, I was still rather tired. Just after midnight. But still not as tired as before the session. I was a great excersice and doing fun stuff tend to bring energy. Someone who brought lots of energy was the trainer, Mr Max at Mästerfoto (Master Photo) who gave this session Рgreat guy and I captured his autograph:

It was worth it. I returned to my hotel room at around 1 o’clock AM and was not tired at all. And I had a great view:

Thank you to the team from M√§sterfoto (Master Photo). But most of all, -thank you to my daughter Victoria, my son Alexander and my wife Lena giving me a great gift card for this experience as a Christmas present.

Mor och dotter tävlade

Kristi Flygare firades med dressyrtävling.

-Nej, nej. Det var inte jag som tävlade i dressyr och det var inte sonens hund heller.

Det var dottern och hustrun på sina hästar! Klubbmästerskap i Starby för Källetorps RS handlade det om.

Det gick väl hyfsat tyckte hustrun när hon slog dottern med en ynka procent! -Och var väl ganska nöjd!

Dottern var inte lika n√∂jd kanske men tyckte v√§l att det kunde vara ok eftersom hon t√§vlade med gamla ponnyn – som dessutom var ordentligt “ringrostig”.

– Sen var det ju s√• att dottern gick och vann n√§sta klass men stora h√§sten, Cool Coffee, och d√• var ju dagen √§nd√• r√§tt s√• ok. D√§refter n√∂jd dotter ocks√•, allts√• ūüôā

Slutet gott, allting gott!
