This is a shot in an occasional series I call “Portraits @work. The wide angle portrait gives to my mind a sense of environment, which can be missing in a straight portrait.
I’ve wondered around my place of work and taken,I won’t call them candids, but pictures of people willing to get in front of the lens for me. Carrying around a nice looking Hasselblad adds a little to the fascination for them I think. I’ve had people in the past ask me to take a picture of them. They just fall in love with the camera.

The Tour of Norway passed close to my doorstep on Wednesday this week. Being I am a big cycling fan I placed myself where I knew they would have to take a sharp lefthand turn. I lay in the grass with my camera ready and shot off a load of images. After the leaders and the main Peloton had blasted past a domestique from the Uno-X team came past, his hunched back carrying several water bottles for his thirsty team mates. He threw his empty bottle away and that was my souvenir of the day…plus this shot. So whomever you were (I didn’t get your number) thank you.

I little while ago I attend a lecture given by fellow member of society I happen to also be a member of here in Norway. The subject was Scottish Basket hilted swords. I think this shot captures his passion for his subject and,collection .

I think there is always something sad about a boat on land. They just don’t belong.
Another shot in the same vain from my recent trip to Denmark. You can see the other I have posted here.
a well earned one. Since I purchased my Leica M9P last summer that is the camera that has been getting all my attention. Not that I wanted it that way it has just became my go camera . However. Very time I open the freezer at home I have to move a large amount of film around to get to other things. I just can’t let it all just sit there. With that in mind I was invited to Denmark for a weekend party. So I decided to take my Hasselblad and one lens and two film backs. In addition I took my M9P and one lens too. But didn’t take it on the day I wanted to go the the harbour in the local town. I wanted to use my Hasselblad. Anything else would have been a distraction. In the short time I had I shot 4 rolls of T-max (three 400asa and one 100 asa). In the middle I went to the pub or Kro as they say in Denmark. This is todays picture . However there will be more to follow.
That’s the wording on my friends hat.
Another from my hunting trip.
