This is another shot from my London trip. Taken at Piccadilly Circus last night. I had to choose between finding Soho or the toilet 😀

Underground…, originally uploaded by Tor-Ivar.

Visiting London this week… and I had a chance this evening to stroll around the city, taking some “London by night”-shots 🙂

This is one of the results… Thought this one could be a cool shot… Big Ben is in the background here.

Taken with Canon 5D and Sigma 24-70 f2.8.

hm… I suddenly realized that my postprocessing of this one have gone wrong… :-s … using my work laptop for post processing photos is not ideal… :-s (EDIT: Fixed the image now… )

This is another “detail” shot from me… Do you see what it is/where this one is taken? 🙂 Strange one… but I love looking at ordinary things from new angles 🙂

Taken with my Canon 5D and my 50mm lens…

Ok… this is what I would call photographic nerdity (if that is an expression :-)) But… as you perhaps have seen, I am attracted to details… that one usually never think of when taking pictures…

I like this… even if it is a peculiar subject… and I guess I hereby can call myself a photographic nerd 😀

Taken on our cabin on Røros with Canon 5D and my cheap but beloved 50mm lens 😀

age and wisdom of life…, originally uploaded by Tor-Ivar.

It is sometimes hard to express the respect and the love you have to the people closest to you… and taking time to learn from those who have lived and experienced the many facets of life… I have recently realized that these small and simple things really matter, they are truly important. 🙂

Taking small breaks in a hectic everyday, doing these small, but very important things mentioned above are goals for me for 2009 🙂

The portrait was taken with Canon 5D, 50mm@ f2.2 at ISO 1600. Only an old reading lamp was used for lightening the subject.

Took this one last fall on a trip we made to Røros where we have our cabin. I simply love the smile and the eyes my lovely wife has…:-)

Slightly tweaked the colouring of this one in Photoshop 🙂

It is taken with 450D, 70-200L f4 in natural light.

Taken on a trip we made this autumn with some of our best friends. 🙂
We had a lovely weekend!

I have also found that I like to play with blue colours in portraits 🙂

Taken with 450D and 50mm f1.8 lens.
