Postcards from Sweden
I’m just wrapping up an amazing week in Sweden. Spent part of it pubbing and exploring Stockholm, which is an incredible city, and so easy to travel. It’s got great public transport, and it’s small, and extremely friendly. English is so widely spoken I never once had that familiar dread of knowing I needed to mime my way through ordering lunch. I spent the last few days of my time here in a rented Volvo heading up the coast and exploring little fishing villages and forests, and the weather complied with banks of gorgeous fog and mist. Not unlike Iceland, I froze my little fingertips off most days here, but that’s my own fault – I packed for the next two weeks in the Italian Riviera and Venice, not Scandinavia. I’ll be back and next time I’ll head as far north as I can get, likely heading into Norway as well. Next time I’m bringing mittens.
A couple days ago Craft & Vision released an eBook about sharing our images. I’m more passionate than ever about sharing – getting our photographs out into the world, through various media. I can’t print these until I’m home, but I can still give you a peek at them. If you haven’t checked out Stuart Sipahigil’s latest: Shoot + Share, Getting Your Photographs out into the World, it’s well worth a look, and it’s still only $4 if you use the coupon code in this link. It’s full of great ideas and starting points about sharing, and should light a fire under you to give your work a life beyond your harddrives. In the meantime, enjoy the postcards. It’s more than I usually share, but I’m feeling share-y. And it’s been a while since I posted one of these. The one above is a favourite. I couldn’t believe the intensity of the colours from the oxidizing rocks, and ended up shooting this piece of coastline for a couple cold hours filled with wonder.
