“Photography can only represent the present. Once photographed, the subject becomes part of the past.”

Starting a new post. Mostly landscape photography and some portraits from Hvaler in Norway where I live. I live just a five minutes walk from the sea and the nature here is wonderful. Fredrikstad is the nearby city and also a great place to take photos.


I have a small cheap drone. 12mp camera on it I think.  Use it as ofte I can to photograph new angles here where I live. Sometimes the scenery can look amazing from the sky.

Black & White

“Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art.” – Ansel Adams’

Starting a new post, it’s back to basic with simple black and white photography for a while. Going to post portraits, street photos and everyday shots.

Mostly using my everydays cameras : Pentax ME Super with a Pentax 50mm, (scans to digital from film), and my old trusty battle scarred street camera, the Canon 5D with Carl Zeiss 2/35 Distagon ZE T*.


From Asmaløy on Hvaler in August.
