It’s every day, International Women’s Day
I’m reposting this today, as it is International Women’s Day today. And, I still stand with what I’ve written so it’s as current today. Maybe even more, in some countries new rules have been written that women are not allowed to study and in other countries the abortion rights are being taken away from women.…
It might seem like there’s only one thing going on
When you look at my surf photos it might seem like there’s only one surfer in the water when actually, there are many. And most of my photos looks like the ones above, a bit messy, but I like them more than the clean shots. They’re depicting the beautiful sea and the movement in the…
There’s nothing like it
The light is already starting to come back, today we got 4 minutes and 35 seconds more daylight. And when the weather is like this it’s a noticeable difference. There’s nothing quite like the light up here in the winter months and one of the reasons I moved back up north. Also, there’s open spaces…
You can’t compare countries
One year ago I was in Polhena, Sri Lanka, swimming with my camera and I met the Indian woman in the photo above and she basically wanted me to say that India is better than Sri Lanka. In my reply to her I could hear the reply the old man who does the accounting at…
I see no difference
I see no difference between how the mama monkey looks at her baby and how a human looks at their baby. And it’s sort of the same with how I see myself and what I do, there’s hardly any difference between living in the north of Sweden and in Sri Lanka. I basically do the…
And I continue
I continue waking up early in the mornings, getting on my bike, being stunned by the beauty of the city and feeling fully present while I’m swimming in the waters around Stockholm. Sounds pretentious, but it’s true. And usually it’s the best part of the day.
100 Days in Stockholm
It’s 100 days since I came back to the city. That’s an incredible amount of days. Doesn’t feel like 100 days, not sure what it feels like because these times are not like anything I’ve previously experienced. Spent a lot of time in my apartment, have been working on all the photos I’ve taken during…
I make plans
Then I usually do the exact opposite. Like the last time I was here in Hikkaduwa, I took a walk on the beach and decided to go to India before going back to Sweden. That probably won’t happen. But I did some good thinking and made plans.
It’s the imperfections that does it
Like a pair of odd feet in a photo.
Early bird etc.
I always wake up early, when everything is quiet, it’s still dark outside and I have the world to myself. I love what the world looks like at that hour when the sun is near the horizon but still hasn’t risen above it. At first everything I can see is in grayscale but as soon…
