Taking photos is a big part of a creative life, as it can be used both as documenting, finding inspiration, memory keeping and an art form within itself.
Photography has been a constant in my life for a long, long time. I love to document what I see and feel, how I look and what I create. I also enjoy sharing my photography efforts here on my blog, and via the photo site Flickr and Instagram.
My camera is a Nikon d5200. I also use an Ixus & my smart phone (android at the moment).
Dear Photo Diary, I have been making videos at my desk, for my YouTube channel, but I have not been taking a lot of photos. It’s just been that kind of year I guess. Who else feels that it’s been a bad year for photography? I think it’s time to restart the habit of taking […]
The app One Second Everyday is a free app that you download to your smart phone and use to document your days in video format. Since all you’ve got to do is film one second it isn’t’ too hard to get started and remember to press record. At the end of the month (or year) […]

I believe in process. I believe in four seasons. I believe that winter’s tough, but spring’s coming. I believe that there’s a growing season. And I think that you realize that in life, you grow. You get better. Steve Southerland Dear Photo Diary, I am sorry that I have ignored you for so long. It […]

But first a little bit about the artist Yayoi Kusama… Yayoi Kusama and her polka dots Yayoi Kusama is a internationally well-known and very much […]
When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it. Henry Ford Dear Photo Diary I am not taking as many photos with my big girl camera anymore, because of phone. It feels sad looking back, so sometimes I pull myself together and take some […]
The month of May has been divided into two very intense parts: beautiful weather that draws me outdoors, away from the computer and blogging, and heavy computer work time that also has drawn me away from social media and writing blog posts. But today I (almost) finished one of my articles, and while the sun […]
Since I’m still not one hundred percent well after the flu, I haven’t made any new collages and feel way behind. I think I’m the only one not posting to the hashtag #365somethings2018 on Instagram, and I invented the thing! Gah! But I digress. I’m trying to go through older photos on the computer, and […]
It’s autumn in Sweden. Well actually, today we are going into Winter Time, setting our clocks back an hour to get more lights in the mornings… But where I am we haven’t had any snow yet, so I’m enjoying the autumn still, as best I can. I do not like how early it gets dark […]
