Imagine people banging on the windows of your home eight hours a day every day. This is what animals at the zoo will have to endure, the other day I witnessed and endless stream of children and adults alike doing just that and you’d think the adults would be enlightened enough to refrain from doing this.
When you visit a zoo, please do not bang at the windows to the animals, you are stressing them out. If there at least had been signs notifying people to not engage in this behaviour.
A sign found across the zoo was one asking people to not feed the animals, something I find frightening that it is needed. Still, good of the zoo to at least put these up.
“Make sure it is only the animal care takers that feed our animals”
It is high time to get some momentum at Instagram so you are cordially invited to visit and follow for nice imagery of almost all sorts from my extensive production.

Anyone should take pride in their work or find something else to work with. I do take pride in what I do with the cameras, though some images I am more proud of than others. This is one such image. Technical quality isn’t the main concern for a driven photographer, anyone can learn to shoot technically good photos. The ability to capture the moments are at the heart of any photographer dedicated to documenting the world as it is, often you have mere seconds at your disposal before the moment is gone which was the case with this one.
Third year in a row, surely that must be considered a tradition? Time to dive deep into the image archive again and dig out some nice photos for the coming budget proposition for the city from The Sweden Democrats (SD). Here’s one of last years selected images.
I refuse to become a guinea pig for the medical companies and their experimental gene therapy! I kneel for no-one and I will NOT comply!
I’ve gotten som “complaints”, apparently I’ve done too few Childhood’s End shots for a while. Pinkie even tried to drown his sorrows not being photographed for an eternity just to learn that you can’t drown them, they can swim…
Finally some nice weather with sun, blue skies and warmth, at last I can get going with the Alphas generating loads of nice imagery to share with the world now that my joints will begin to cooperate a little. The last two days have been filled with excursions together with a friend into some nooks and crannies of the county where I live.
One of the nice places visited today was a small lake called Ljusgrytan where a lot of people ventured out to enjoy the weather and fish for trouts. I got some really good shots while walking all the way around the lake, for instance this strapping young lad trying to hook a nice fish or two.
Finally, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, I thought. The other week I was approached by an online rock publication about a collaboration with me as a concert photographer. At last something happens and I might have a chance to salvage the sinking ship, sinking because of all those pesky restrictions imposed due to the Chinese affliction.
When I recieved the agreement document they wanted me to sign the light faded instantly. They wanted exclusive rights to the images published by them and that could have been acceptable, but they wanted them without compensating me. They wanted me to provide them with unique concert photos that normally sell for between 2,000 and 5,000 USD each with exclusive rights.
Yeah, no, that ain’t gonna happen!!!
It didn’t stop there though. They wanted me to agree to surrender copyright without compensation if and when they arranged promotional shoots with artists. The usual way is that a publication (or anyone) who is an intermediary for these shoots get a finders fee, a precentage of what the photographer is paid, but the rights to the material remain with the photographer.
Yeah, no, that ain’t gonna happen either!!!
To sum it up, all I can say at this point is HELL NO!!!
Every year Pantone selects which color that is the color of the year which influences purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home furnishings and graphic design. As a photographer I have to in some extent follow this when adding images to stock image exchanges to increase sales. Last year the chosen color was Classic Blue.
However not all home design companies are aware of these trending colors which I realized when I needed cushions for my kitchen chairs and went to the local store of the Rusta chain. There was absolutely nothing what so ever in the color blue among their home furnishing/design items. So much for me trying to be trendy
The color of the year 2021 is actually two colors, Ultimate Gray and Illuminating Yellow. Guess it’ll be a lot of sunflowers and dandelions shot this year.
People are becoming scared of the tech companies. Really scared. And they should be. AI is gonna create 60 percent unemployment. They use you and they need you, but they don’t like you anymore. Instagram makes people feel like shit about their lives. Twitter makes them feel reviled. Facebook destroyed democracy.
The problem with the people who run tech companies is that they have too much power and become fanatics, they think they’re Messiahs. The problem with these Messiahs though is that they’re false profets.
Their followers are equally bad. They’re young, arrogant and ignorant while claiming those who actually have life experience are of “the era that doesn’t know”. In fact it is they who are of that era, their era doesn’t know shit. All so f-ing political, all so woke. But they don’t know anything about history, they don’t know anything about art, they don’t know shit about music, they don’t know shit about biology, they don’t know shit about psychology, they don’t know shit about morality. Actually they don’t know shit about politics either and are not woke. They’re not even asleep, they’re comatose.
You can either be a woke sheep or think for yourself, the choice is yours…
Two of the most intelligent people to ever walk this Earth both warned us. Stephen Hawking warned us of trusting AI, it will be the downfall of us, and Isaac Asimov warned us of over confidence in technology, tech is dumbing us all down.
