About

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).

  1. I have used both Nikon and canon. Personally,I feel the colors of Canon are always better. Nikon are towards “exotic”. With canon you can be sure of the result, but in case of Nikon it’s not so!! that’s a personal experience…might vary with another camera model.

    it’s great you are able to manage 2-3 blogs! I’m sure it must be fun photographing in Scandinavia!! the landscapes are so beautiful!

    1. Thank you! I am sort of at a low with blogging just now but try to at least put up pictures once a week on Weekly weather. But I work full time so I prepare pictures on my free time. About cameras I find it depends on what you photograph. Sometimes Nikon gives the result I like, sometimes Canon. I wish you a wonderful weekend!

  3. Hello Christina: I follow your blog and I like it.
    I would like to use one of your photos for a very short story that I have written. It is this one : img_6583 « it’s pouring down ». I came back to your Weekly Weather pages and now I cannot find it anymore. Where is it ? I hope that you have not deleted it ! it is perfect to show a road in rain in this story about children who must go back to the city at the end of Summer. My blog is simple, personal, non commercial and General Audience. Naturally I’ll credit you and add a link to your Weekly Weather or wherever the image lives, and to all your blogs if you so wish …. I hope to hear form you soon.

    Many thanks and best regards, Vera
