Dad out on a Summer drive with two happy kids in a 1968 Dodge Polara Convertible. I hope they have their seat-belts on. Also a Chevrolet Chevy II that the owner have named Doris for some reason. Shot that one using the panning technique. Photos taken from a pedestrian bridge that crosses Gudöbroleden in Handen.

While shooting some snaps from a bridge I spotted at least two potential organ donors. Driving without a helmet in the busy traffic can be really stupid and of course very illegal. The fine for that is 1500SEK. Driving around with a mug of coffee in one hand seems a bit ridiculous. And unnecessary as it would be very tricky to drink some of that coffee with the helmet on!

I spotted a guy playing the guitar at the bus terminal in Västerhaninge the other day. He wasn't busking or anything, just waiting for his ride. This is Stefan Korpar. He lives in Sköndal. He is a student. A future musician he told me. But he is already a musician as he plays in the band Munnen. They play experimental punk. On the second photo Stefan is showing me an instrument that he is currently building. A Kalimba. Or African Thumb Piano. His will have a microphone added so that he can record loops to his computer. The bands latest release is called SMAKA NYA STADEN.

A wheat field at the Nödesta Västergård photographed from two different angles on separate days. Always trying to think a bit outside the box. First photo with the Krigslida bridge, shot with the silent zoom lens. Second photo taken with the nifty fifty.

On my way to Handen two days ago I spotted a guy trying to climb up the old execution rock at Hanveden. That is not something you see every day so I had to stop for a chat and a photo. Meet Per Åström from Västerhaninge. Climbing is his (new),passion. Be it bouldering or rope climbing. This rock isn't very high, but it was still a hard ascend because when I rode back an hour or so later Per was still there giving it another go. He told me a bit about the technique and how it can be hard on the fingers. He also told me that he had just arrived home from one weeks rope climbing in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc.

When I saw this car drive away from me in Västerhaninge two days ago I figured I had missed my chance of taking some photos of it. But then 20 minutes later in another part of Haninge there it was again. Driving towards me so I waved to the driver and when he stopped I asked if he had a few minutes. Tony told me that he bought the 1965 Ford Falcon Rancher earlier this year. It's a very rare car. Only 600 or so were made and he thought his was the only one in Sweden, or Europe even. Both photos shot using the Brenizer method. Fifteen or so photos per image, shot with the nifty fifty at f/2.8.

Found this vintage moped parked outside a grocery store in Västerhaninge yesterday. It's a 1957 Husqvarna Roulette. Designed by Sixten Sason. A real monster at 0.8 hp. Came with two or three speeds. Cost 790SEK back in 1957. Today owned by Leffe whom you have met on the blog a few times. He normally rides a Harley.

I was on my way home after a rather unsuccessful day of photography when I spotted a blond girl with silver colored shoes. So I decided to ask her for a portrait. This is Beatrice. From Västerhaninge. Still in secondary school. But she has already decided on her future. Beatrice is a future economist. Her hobbies include working out at the gym and playing classical pieces on the piano. It was a tricky shoot, the wind picked up. I used one focus point and aimed for one of her eyes, but on a few of the photos the camera locked on to her blond hair that was flying left and right!

The theme at this years Art Promenade (Kulturstigen), at the Kyrkskolan Art Gallery in Österhaninge is Darkness and Light. (Ljus och mörker). One of the artists, Marianne Kopamees decided to use Gargamel and a few smurfs in her installation! First photo shows the dark room with Gargamel and his cat Azrael, where the long shadows exists. Second photo shows the lit up room with the smurfs, where playfulness and joy exists. Oh, and fun fact, the tree that you can see on the wall here is the toothache tree that I have photographed a couple of times.

Here are my two, (so far), July photos of the old tree. It was warm and windy on my first visit this month (second photo),and a bit calmer the week after that. If you look closely you can see that the farmer have been busy harvesting the hay.

The first time I stopped this girl and asked her for a portrait she promptly refused. That was maybe two years ago. It was the tattoo of the cross near her eye that caught my eye that time. Since then I have seen her many times and I must have stopped her and asked her for a few photos, four or five times, but she has always turned me down. Until two days ago that is when we met on a walkway near Jordbro. She had her headphones on when I stopped the bike and waved to her. Her name turned out to be Sanna. She lives in Västerhaninge. She is not religious in the Christian way, but she does have her own believes. I live on the dark side she told me. Hence the tattoo of the tied up angel. Sanna spends a lot of time in the gym, working out is a big part of her life as is as you can guess tattoos.
