The staircase at the Savoy Hotel in Copenhagen.
Seen from the groundfloor and up.

In trying to incorporate the feel of a guitar in a single picture, I came up with this.
I wanted the colourfull rosette around the soundhole to standout, so I made the rest black and white, with a touch of sepia look.
I have experimented with some HDR rendering, in an attempt to make the monochrome more defined. Have also tried to give it some punch with some dodging and burning.
All in all I think the result is satisfying.
One morning I stumbled upon this scenery. A flower bowl next to a restaurant, with a forgotten, or maybe carelessly thrown away, wine glass. I don’t know what is the story and it might not matter much.
But in the moment there was something symbolic in the different fragility of both the flowers and the glass. As well as the contrast between the hard and crystal-clear glass, and the soft but colourfull flowers. I hope I got it all in the picture.
Out in the streets before the rest of the tourists wake up. Had a wish to kind of ‘have the town for myself’ in order to make some pictures in monochrome.
The narrow Streets. The houses. The shops. The corners and piazzas. It all invited to experiment with monochrome. So I got out of bed earlier than usual. Left the hotel with my mobile and took a stroll in the heart of the town.
I was indeed alone in the sense of being a tourist. Only the locals were up, getting shops and resturants ready for another busy day. The weather was bright but slightly cloudy. So I had not to worry about too much contrast in my pictures when taken. I would rather work with that in the postprocessing later.
Below You find 8 pictures, the result of my morningstroll in Malcesine. I have tried to make som slightly ‘punchy’ monochromes, or black and whites if You wish.
Walking around in the centre of Verona, I was passing by som windows that were scattered with grafitti and stickers. I tried to see them as pictures. Maybe even as pieces of art in their own right.
You never know what appears in Your view when strolling around. Motives are dependant of the eyes that sees. What seems to be nothing at girst glance, suddenly live it’s own life and appears as something worth photographing.
Yeah, and in there You can see a mild, ghostly view of the photographer. But it is not signifcant in any way.
The pictures are to be found in slightly lager size, in the Mobileography gallery.
Walking around in the beautiful and old village, Soenderho on the south end of the island Fanoe in Denmark. The old houses and the narrow streets and pathways, made an almost neverending stroll, with new sceneries around every corner.
In a way I felt like in a time-capsule when walking around, looking at the old houses, backyards and shops.
Eventually I ended up at the lokal Inn for lunch.
Below some pictures from the day.
(Or, how to mix coffee and mobilephotography)
It is cold and rainy outside the window. Not at all ‘spring-like’ even though the calendar states April 17th.
The only way, for me, to counter a creeping winter mood would be a good cup of coffee. And then why not picture the process on my mobilephone, and put some pictures on my website?
A setup on the dining table. A mix of daylight and a spot, supported by a diffusescreen. A wooden tray, and most of the shots made handheld.
All pics processed in Snapseed.
Have a nice cup of coffee :o)
A walk at Stanghede inspired to produce som monochrome pictures with some dramatic clouds that was present today. And a single color picture trying to capture the fresh green moss on some of the trees.
All pictures are postprocessed with NIK-collection in Lightroom and Photoshop.
Easter Friday at the beach in Noerre Vorupoer. A lot of people have had the same urge to go to the sea on this holiday. The weather was a little cold, a little windy and mostly cloudy. Not the perfect day for black and white picturing. But anyways I tried my luck at some of the activities people were doing.
