I am interested in miniatures, animals, flowers and plants, books and photography.
I have used several cameras in my life starting with the Instamatic my father bought on our way to Norway in 1963. My first real camera was a Yashica half-automatic camera bought in 1970 followed by a Canon ftb some years later. From the 1980s I photographed with Olympus OM1 with several lenses and from the late 1990s with several makes of small compact digital cameras alongside the analog Olympus and a Minolta APS camera bought in 2002. In november 2010 I at last bought a Nikon D3000 on sale when a photo shop had to close. Some small compact cameras have varied in make over the years. Now I use the smart phone as a quick pocket-camera. In 2010 I bought a Nikon D3000 and later added several lenses that most often travelled with me in my backpack on my daily journey to an from work, thus generating a lot of pictures of the town I live in. Later I bought a Canon Eos 1100D as a temporary measure as a second camera. I think the Canon makes pictures that are colder than the Nikon. But it could of course be the lens as my daugter’s Canon 550D doesn´t seem as cold to me. And I rather like strong colors of the kind that were always shown in the advertisement for the Kodak films. During the autumn of 2015 I bought a Nikon D3200 that just now is the camera I use the most and the Nikon D3000 has been donated to my son.
Weekly Weather is an extension of my main blog, From My Horizon. I also have a blog for vintage photography on Vintage Photography and one for bird pictures on Birdbrain. Pictures on these themes from before I started the daughter blogs can be found on From My Horizon. This year I started Boring Postcards, where I mostly republish pictures from my other blogs that fits the description in some measure even though not all are boring in my mind.
I have also made an examination project during spring 2013 with pictures I have scanned from black an white films I took in the early 1970s. To look at them head for Moments in time (English) or to Ögonblick i tiden (Swedish).
