There weren’t really time for any photo excursions the last weekend, but at least I stepped outside at the mansion and shot a dahlia which I then played around a little with in Photoshop. Adding the original image unedited as well, all that has been done to that is cropping.
Some shots I am more proud of than others, this one shot today is one of them. Even though the bumble bee is taken from behind it’s awesome.
Two weeks ago we finally got some warmth and blue skies, that lasted for a weekend and then it went back to being cold and mostly cloudy. There has even been snowfall a couple of times since then. I do believe the weather Gods are amusing themselves on our behalf.
Hopefully it’ll soon turn around and the warmth will come. Then I can at last get a little better in my joints and get going with showering you with great pictures. At least I got a shot of a colts foot with a flower fly on top of it that weekend a fortnight ago.
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.

Now it’s definitely winter, woke up this morning to a totally frozen world…
The other day when I went out to enjoy the sun and do some street photography I did find some lovely fall colors as well.
A permanent exhibition is available at The Federation of Swedish Photographers where just a few images, 30 to be exact, from my extensive and continously growing archive can be viewed. It wasn’t an easy task choosing just 30 out of 2,000,000 without even having a theme to base the choice on.
This year my work was supposed to have been featured in several physical exhibitions, but due to that Chinese affliction those exhibitions were cancelled. Better luck next year I guess.
This year there have been lots of nature shots taken, I had to devote my attention to something when there were no concerts or other events to shoot. Among other things I have been seen hovering low just like this little fly go get close up to nature’s winged little miracles.
Early this morning, when the sun had come up, I took a walk with the camera. It sure was cold, but I did find a frost bitten rose or two.
