When I was young, I hated having my picture taken; I preferred being on the other side of the camera. But it wasn’t until college that I really started to explore photography as an art above and beyond just capturing memories.
After I acquired my own digital SLR, my use of the camera really exploded. No more frugality with film. And then I started pondering the intriguing concept of a photo blog. Could I keep up with one photo posted every day? I’ve been doing pretty well since August 22, 2006, give or take a handful of days missed due to various life interruptions.
Having moved to Sweden in November 2010, I’ve been grateful for the “change of scenery” and the opportunity to capture new details that catch my eye.
Why is the photo is too big to fit in my browser window?
Photos are displayed at a maximum width or height of 1024 pixels in order for the eye to view even the tiny details. This large format is not compatible for many smaller screens, so to see a smaller version of any photo, just click anywhere on the image itself and you will be taken to its page on Flickr. There you can view the photo in different sizes. You can also hit the F11 key for maximizing the viewing space on your PC screen (Mac users: the shortcut key for full screen display varies by browser).
What settings did you use for this photo? Where was it taken?
Every photo’s detailed EXIF properties—ISO, shutter speed, aperture, focal length—are stored on Flickr. To access this info, just click on the photo in question to be taken to its Flickr page. This is also the place to see a map of where many (not all, sorry) of my photos was taken.
How can I use or acquire a print of one of your photos?
If you plan to use any of my photos digitally for your own personal use (such as on your website), please include a credit line and a link back to the image’s URL on this site. If you want to acquire rights to use one for any for-profit purposes (e.g. in a magazine or brochure), you must contact me first. For prints, check out the Buy Prints page for prices.
