2018-03-23   STOCKHOLM IN THE EVENING

By | 2018-03-22T21:57:37+00:00 March 23rd, 2018|Stockholm|

On my way back to the hotel I saw that atmospheric scene of the illuminated buildings and the boats which were lying on the silent water. I took my camera out of the photo bag for one of my last shots of the day. Since it got a bit cold already, my wife forced me to speed up with the photo session.  🙂

2018-02-06   LOUNGE IN STOCKHOLM

By | 2018-02-05T20:30:49+00:00 February 6th, 2018|Stockholm|

This lounge in Stockholm, near the Vasa museum, paired with the sunny weather,  gave you the feeling of a Mediterranean party. You got cold drinks, watched at a lake and listened to chilling music. I walked around with my camera and was eager to catch the best scenes of that atmosphere.

2017-11-20  CYCLIST IN STOCKHOLM

By | 2017-11-19T20:55:01+00:00 November 20th, 2017|Stockholm|

Bicycles are high-ranking in the Northern European capitals like Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Oslo or here in Stockholm. Although I didn’t rent a bike, I was busy taking photos. There I noticed some harmony between the means of transportation. In Vienna, there is always a feud between cars and bicycles.  😕

2017-10-26  LONG STAIRS IN STOCKHOLM

By | 2017-10-25T18:19:51+00:00 October 26th, 2017|Stockholm|

The ideal stairs for Runtastic-users, bringing your fitness level on a higher plateau with stair climbing. 😎   I am more the guy for weight training, but often take my Nordic-Walking sticks for weekend tours with my wife. In Stockholm, I hadn’t my sticks with me. So I left the stairs for photo shooting only. 🙂

2017-09-23  SHIP IN STOCKHOLM

By | 2017-09-23T11:51:29+00:00 September 23rd, 2017|Stockholm|

Parts of the sea and canals are very well integrated into Stockholm. The Stockholm Pass had a cruising session combined, I attended and was soon on an excursion boat. For taking photos, I had to go outside, on the back deck, because I wanted to prevent to shoot through dirty windows. In the back, space was limited, because the whole crowd wanted to take photos, mostly with smartphones. I had to stand up from time to time, to occupy the space I needed for taking the pictures I want. 🙂

2017-09-20  GRAND HOTEL STOCKHOLM

By | 2017-09-06T16:24:27+00:00 September 20th, 2017|Stockholm|

Tonight we sleep on silken sheets
We drink fine wine and eat rare meats
On Carousel and gambling stake
Our fortunes speed, and dissipate
It’s candlelight and chandelier
It’s silver plate and crystal clear
The nights we stay at Hotel Grand  ➡ song text “Grand Hotel” by Procol Harum

For me it was only a visit at the bar  :-),  I did the photos a bit undercover, photographing at that location is not welcomed. Grand Hotel Stockholm has it all, butlers and concierges in uniform, waiters and bar tenders with a suit, bow tie, and tidy haircuts.

2017-09-11  HIP BAR IN STOCKHOLM

By | 2017-09-02T19:28:51+00:00 September 11th, 2017|Stockholm|

After a long walk, we entered that hip bar and restaurant in Stockholm. It was downright crowded, and we had no reservation, so we got only a less prominent seat at the window. Due to the large orders, the waiters were under stress, and we had already 2 Aperol Sprizz each until we got our meal, which was a finger food plate. After the food, we ordered Averna on the rocks with lemon slices, which is my favorite aperitif.

2017-08-31  COOL KIDS IN STOCKHOLM

You can use the Stockholm Pass also for a boat tour, (one of the many attractions included) so I did. There I saw those cool kids with sunglasses and headphones, listening and shaking to the rhythm of the music.  🙂

2017-08-09  ESCALATORS IN STOCKHOLM

By | 2017-08-08T17:54:09+00:00 August 9th, 2017|Stockholm|

Subway station in Stockholm? Or an abstract view which would also hold its own in a 1st person shooter video game, where you have to explore steel dungeons in dim light and search for an escape of the thrill. 🙂

It’s a hidden secret, that the must do for every photographer in Stockholm should be the visit of the artful subway stations, with the colorful paintings of the ceiling and the pillars, which I have already shown in some older posts about Stockholm. You have to click on the “Stockholm” category link under the picture in the blog got to get all Stockholm-posts.

2017-08-04  ASIAN GIRL IN STOCKHOLM

By | 2017-08-03T17:19:18+00:00 August 4th, 2017|Stockholm|

I was waiting for my wife, who was on a short shopping spree, sitting on a socket beneath a window, my photo bag resting on my knees. Perfect situation for doing people shots, I had my big and heavy Sony Zeiss 135mm 1.8 A-Mount lens with me and mounted it via the LA-EA3 adapter on my Sony A7R II. I did these shots with manual focusing, with the support of focus peaking at the mirrorless camera. My “boring” waiting time converted immediately into an exciting photo session.  🙂
