At last…

At last …. last weekend was it finally time to test a real camera again. It’s been a while since last time and there is little difference between the manual camera I used 30 years ago and the digital version which I have now. I went to Lithuania with my wife and daughter. Flights to Kaunas and a few days there before we rented a car to take us to Trakai and Vilnius. Flight back from Kaunas.

Lots of images available everywhere and my traveling companion was understanding that I almost always wanted to take pictures … Now I have posted some pictures from the trip on flickr, I do not have time to develop weak voices as I like, but if it took thirty years to get back on track, so maybe I should not be impatient.

But please visit my page on flickr. I’m starting to get some comments from people who also are on flickr, fun to get some comments from around the world. A little difference compared to the exhibits that I experienced thirty years ago, then it was friends and family and a few who happened to come by, but now my images can get a comment from the other side of the world.

At the same time I realized how many people there are who are inspired by sharing their pictures, it’s really something of weak voices… an incredible amount of images that are constantly uploaded on flickr. It is wonderful to see lots of other people’s pictures and among them find images that move me, think how much better it has become.

Best regards Johan

Weak voices

When I was around 20 years so I was involved in the association “The black hole” where I was privileged to learn the basics of taking pictures by some really talented people. Something that I am grateful for and it is now time for me to get started again 30 years later …. but it’s not too late to start again. This blog is a way for me to share with you the pictures I take and a way for me to get some structure in the way I spread my pictures.

Meanwhile, in “The black hole” we had a show as we called ‘weak voices’. A quote from a photographer W Eugene Smith. The name “weak voices” refers to the fact that most images that we see every day passes without us react or notice these images. But sometimes we see something that concerns or causes us to pause for a while, as if we heard a weak voice, a voice that made  us pause for a bit and consider what it was that made us pause a while. I always like to try to find images that communicate just that. But it’s up to you to see if you can find such a weak voice among my pictures.
