Portrait of a dear friend

Every morning my dog, Ella, and I go for a morning walk. One of our regular stops is at the end of the wooden pier, just south of Kalmar castle. Click on picture for a large version.

Saga

The old cinema has closed for the Summer – but will be opened again in the Autumn. Saga is the oldest cinema still in use in Sweden and was opened in 1906. It is a small, wooden, building with room for just a small audience. Watching a film at Saga is more like visiting a private home than going to a traditional theater. Dispite it’s age and small size, the equipment is fairly modern with digital projectors and ok sound quality.
Saga is a common name for cinemas in Sweden along with names like Palladium, Röda Kvarn (Red Mill) – a translation of Moulin Rouge – Centrum and Rio. Click on picture for a larger version.

Portrait of a Zombie

We met at Stockholm Zombiewalk last year. Not a word was spoken. She just stopped in front of me and looked into my camera showing that it was ok to take a portrait. Click on picture for a large version.
Next Saturday, September 8, 2018, the zombies will one again fill the streets of Stockholm for a few hours. Visit if you can. More zombies here

Portrait of a Painter

We met at a garden exhibition. I asked him if he had painted the pictures in the background. He said “yes” and I told him that I liked the paintings and his noir-style. He told me that he had lived a complicated life, but that he had always made paintings. Only two weeks ago he had met another painter who had inspired him to develop a new style. During the past two weeks he had worked intensively and could now present a range of paintings in his new style. Click on picture for a large version.

JAS 39C Gripen

JAS 39C Gripen at the F 7 Wing in Såtenäs, Sweden. Click on picture for a larger version. I have published this portrait of the Gripen before but this version was edited in Capture One wich, in my opinion, generates a highly improved image.
My intention was to show the maneuverability of the aircraft rather than create a detailed portrait. I have other more detailed portraits of the JAS 39C Gripen.
