A Mother’s Love 2006

A Mother's Love 2016

We were on our way up to Daintree Forest through Cairns and somewhere in between we stopped at an animal rescue place. They had snakes in cages there and our Aboriginal guide objected strongly against it and didn’t like the idea of caging animals. He was an inspiration to listen to and he told us great many stories on our way up north in the many hours spent in the van.

This baby kangaroo had been orphaned not long ago and taken care of here until she was ready to bounce on her own. She was just waking up in her small blanket imitating a pouch and we got to take a peek. This woman sat down on her knees and approached the kangaroo slowly and somehow I saw it happen through my camera. I knew when I pressed the trigger I got it. A glimpse of love.

That was about a decade ago. And I still get happy when I look at it.

The Grids In My Head

The Grids In My Head

The Grids In My Head  -- with grids When I’m composing a picture there’s some things I like to keep in mind. One of them is the The rule of thirds. In my head I picture a grid and then place the subject in one of the grid’s cutting points. This is probably one of the most known tricks in the book, but still not everyone thinks about it. It’s an easy way to make your photographs “heaver”. It can make them pop. Take a look at the picture to the left to see what I mean. I use this a lot when I’m cropping images too.

Photoshop tip: If you’re using Adobe’s Photoshop there’s a simple way to get a grid overlaying your images. Go to Edit > Preferences > Guides, Grid & Slices. Use the following:

Photoshop tip: Grid overlay

Press OK when you’re done. To display the grids press CTRL+’ (CMD+’ on Mac) or View > Show > Grid.

However. Remember that rules are meant to be broken!

Eurotrip 2012: Part two – Austria

So we went to Austria again. This time we went to Innsbruck to trekk the mountains. Austria is a really beautiful country with lots to offer. But the nature is what drew us here, you’ll also see why in the following pictures.

Do you feel the inspiration?

I’ve always been lucky with festivals. Even though I’ve only visited two. But the summer of 2009 was special. The festival in Emmaboda was such a success and imprinted a great memory in my life. I just felt like posting a few of my favorites from the festival now that Sweden is dark and bitter this is reminding me of how great Sweden can be. Enjoy.

Hurricane Alex: The aftermath

Yesterday I took a drive through the city with Anna and her mother. The destruction of the city is immense and beyond recognition. I took a lot of photos and the quality might not be as the usual ones at Silfver Creations. This is more for documentary purpose. But perhaps you can enjoy them anyway. The Hurricane Alex from my point of view. And please remember the source of these photos.

If you want to use these photos for commercial use say hi first and we’ll discuss it. Are you a blogger or want them for private use, please feel free to do so. I appreciate link backs though.

It’s 9 images so it might take a while to load if you’re outside of Sweden.
