End date

This site will go off-line by the 30th of november.

Photos will be available on my 500px page. The blog entries and all the bla bla bla will merge into the great internet void.

Moving to ….

As part of the future dismissal of this website, I started sharing images on 500px.com instead. The albums here will stay until this site stops existing, and they’re not replicated yet in all cases. But with time, they will, and be higher resolution than they are here.

So, please do head over to my 500px site!

Quick update

It’s been more than a bit silent on this site. All my fault. Busy with other stuff, short holiday, a backlog on photos to cull, edit and process. Actually, I’m trying to go through that backlog first a bit, to be able to add to the album on this site, and to have some visuals to liven up postings here.

So with all that… real updates will have to wait for the next year.

Have a great start to 2023, and hopefully it’ll bring a year that improves on everything that 2022 ended up being.

Totally unrelated photo, just because I happen to like it.
