Random July 10

Shooting bubbles in a glass. I think the most trying thing to get right was the mixture of dishwasher and oil and obviously the amount of water. This is my first attempt, you might see more of these in the future.

How to survive November 2017 – 20

One more day in November to survive, slush in coming down sideways and for sure I have no desire to be out there. At work I have lit the candles and only gone out to go and have my usual Thursday desert at the restaurant nearby. The shitty weather can look good if you crop it small enough 🙂

Monochrome Madness (24) – Young boy

This   is my submission to week 24 to the  Monochrome Madness Challenge hosted by Leanne Cole and Laura Macky. I like the expression caught by the camera, my son had just woken up and was in no mood to be photographed. I think it is captured in this shot. I like that is not a posed shot.

Monochrome Madness (20) – Books

One of these photos is my submission to week 20 to the  Monochrome Madness Challenge hosted by Leanne Cole and Laura Macky.

I chose these photos  because I liked the looks of these books as they are, old hardcover books are so beutifully binded.They are also well read and that is the so important in a book… I thought they would look good also in BW. Hope you agree.

Iron (4 of 5)

I visited the small town of Billnäs last weekend such a pictureque place. These pictures are details of one of the mills machines.

Carl Billsten founded Billnäs ironworks in 1641. In Billnäs many buildings remain from the end of the 18thcentury. Nowadays, Billnäs is known for the world-famous orange-handled scissors made by Fiskars Oy, the knife and tools manufacturer.

Billnäs has become an important centre for building renovation in Finland thanks to “Byggnadsapoteket” (the house repairing consultants) who also run courses in-house restoration. The ironworks area has a gardening history dating back more than 350 years, and the oldest plant nursery in Finland.

Billsten`s period (1641-1723)The location of Ironworks was good – In Billnäs the River Mustio has a large precipice so there was no need for larger weir. Also the transport connections from sea and land were good. Alike the needed expendable wood was received from the forests in the surroundings of Billnäs.
