Life is like a coin ...


    

Photography

My pictures are published on flickr - I am still testing a lot with different hardware and techniques, but have loads of ideas of where I want to go. My current camera is a Canon EOS 6D, which I got in autumn 2013. I love it! And most of all I like the EF17-40mm f/4L USM and the EF100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM. I love experimenting with macros and photographing details. I have several close-up filters, a reversing ring for the EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM and a Raynox macro conversion lense and my latest purchase is the EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lense.

Recipes

Having multiple allergies I am always testing around with food. Begin allergic to egg-white and milk-protein and intolerant to gluten and several fruits and veggies, cooking actually is really fun. I will post recipes here for  all sorts of occasions, just need to figure out how to sort them.

Raw





Egg-, milk- & glutenfree





Wild growing food





Preserving





Little paradise - Renovating a small farm from the 1890s







 
The plot (2500 sqm) was bought in l892 of Mr. Ask for 125 SEK from the overall estate owner. Until the 125 SEK were paid, a yearly rate of 3 SEK was due. In 1894 the "torp" was split from the estate and in 1926 the entire original estate was split up. 
1918 the widow of Mr. Ask became the owner of the torp, later their daughter. 
In 1976 a family from Stockholm bought it as a summer cottage, they were then my age. For the last 10 years though the house was more or less abandoned and the garden not cared for.
The entire garden was more or less a jungle and the house has quite some need of renovation and restoration.
I love it - my calm paradise in hectic life.




























About

An alpine evergreen shrub that grows just above the tree line. Just above the tree line is where the views are best, the air the freshest, the surroundings the most amazing ones, the animals the coolest, where you can sit on a stone or on the top of a mountain and just be yourself and enjoy quietness after a hike, a climb, a ski-tour ... this is where I love to be. This is the life I love..
