Yet more Stockholm

Last weekend I decided to have another go at shooting the Stockholm waterfront at sunrise. Clear skies were forecast, and indeed they were very clear… apart from the small group of clouds on the horizon to block sun! So, no pretty sunrise for me, but since I’d already gotten up early I took some shots anyway.

I’ve been playing around with making black and white photos lately. It can be a good way to get a nice image when you don’t have much colour around. The photo of Gamla Stan from Stadhuset was pretty boring colour-wise, but I think it looks much better in black and white where the shapes become important instead.

San Francisco

I went to San Francisco to attend Photonics West 2012. San Francisco is awesome! It is also fantastic city to photograph, with bridges, tall buildings, pretty buildings, mist, and hills. I also had a great view from my hotel room on the 11th floor looking over Union Square. Here are some of the shots I got.
