In my entry for Paula’s Thursday Challenge this week, I’ve tried a technique called focus stacking. Focus stacking is a digital image processing technique which combines multiple images taken at different focus distances to give a resulting image with a greater depth of field (DOF) than any of the individual source images.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Symmetry

In general my life is lacking symmetry these days (as you can see in the last photo with the all the cardboard boxes and the mess): I’m moving (again), so blogging is set temporarily on pause/given low priority.

Oslo – A Village on Steroids

Good morning 2015!

A positive & fresh start I was going to write something positive about a fresh start now that we’ve turned the pages in our calendars and write 2015, instead of 2014, but there’s an endless amount of these “positive thinking, life is so fantastic, you are what you eat, spiritual guidance gave me the courage…

Photo Galleries | Random 2014

I thought that I’d recycle – it’s environmental friendly, plus there’s not a lot of traffic during the holidays, so posting new stuff is useless anyway. Enjoy these two photo galleries with random shots uploaded in 2014. January – May: June – December: These are my plans for 2015: The weekly Sunday posts in my…
