I don’t think we’ve gotten especially much rain here in the village but strong winds and drizzle made me decide that we shouldn’t take a walk when I came home after work. The dogs didn’t seem to mind either, they didn’t even go out into the garden even if the door stood open for a while after they had eaten their food.

The day passed rather quickly even if it is a Tuesday. I was working in the neighbor factory today so I didn’t have a chance to see any clocks unless I opened the door to the paintbox. It was so nice to be in that paintbox even if the air is dangerously toxic :-) The climate in there is always nice because the temperature stays around 20C (68F) and the ventilation is so strong that it feels like I’m standing in a nice breeze most of the time :-)

Very different from my normal work place where it’s always hot with a high humidity. I think I’ve gotten more sensitive towards heat since I started working there, now days I have no problems going outside in a t-shirt even if it is below 0C (32F), I actually like it a lot :-)I wish I could love the rain in the same way too but I guess the high humidity in my work place stops me from doing that :-)

Do You remember me writing about a third Minolta camera that sort of came along when I bought the XGM? and that it needed an autofocus lens if I would be able to check if it worked at all? Well, I bought a very cheap autofocus lens and it arrived in the mail today. I also bought the AAA batteries that the camera needed to work at all and it looks like it works just fine. Now I need to find a manual so I can put some film in it and try it. It looks like it is either fully auto mode or fully manual mode but I haven’t figured out how to adjust it yet. Sooner or later I’ll show photos from that camera too.

Yesterday evening after the sun had set.
Yesterday evening after the sun had set.

I woke up to a very foggy world this morning and it wasn’t ground fog but “real” fog this time. I took a few photos of it before I left but decided to bring the Minolta camera I’m testing right now to get some photos by the tiny lake on my way to work. I hadn’t driven especially far when the fog vanished, the fog was only thick around the bog it seems.  

I really didn't want to go to work when I saw the fog this morning, I would have loved to take a long walk in it.

I did get a few nice photos before the roll had ended but not with any fog, I took a few on my way home instead and these photos You’ll see late this month or early next depending on how much I use the old cameras. I had hoped I would get to see some from those I put in the mailbox late last week but it looks as if I’ll have to wait at least one more day for those.

Sune knows he’s only allowed to take a bath in two of all the creeks around here but today he didn’t care about what he is allowed to do or not, I just heard a big splash and up from the ditch came a not black and white dog but a brown one smelling something nasty! So the first thing I had to do when we came home again was to shower him. It is amazing that a dog who loves water that much can hate to take a shower :-) but he suffered through it silently.

The first thing he tried to do was to run inside and I missed to stop him! Now, Sune is a dog who one can’t shout too much to because he gets so scared that he starets to pee :-) I di try to talk nicely to him to get him outside again before my entire home would be soaking in water. It is amazing how a normally very obedient dog sort of can give you the finger and just refuse to listen. So for once I shouted really loudly towards him and now he walks around looking like I tried to kill him :-) :-) :-) I think I scared Nova and Orvar too and most possibly my neighbors as well :-)

 

From now on it will be photos from the folder "For a rainy day".

I woke up in the early morning by the sound of rain hitting my cottage really hard, I can’t remember any of the weather reports mentioning rain during the night so I have to admit that I was a bit surprised. They have actually been rather accurate in their predictions lately so I had forgotten how often they actually are wrong :-)Otherwise it seems as if the weather will continue in the same manner as yesterday, some rain, some sun but so far no more rain.

It wasn’t that cold this morning to be honest but the high humidity made it feel like it was, so I wore a fleece sweater on our walk. I could see mist rising up on the mountain as soon as the sun showed itself and even some by one of the swampy fields here near my home but not much. It was all quiet when we were out walking but the sounds started as soon as we came home. I think I heard the motor of my neighbors latest car and I also heard a tractor or two.

Our airforce have been out flying a lot above us lately, I guess they’ve gotten lots of more money now when the Russians behave like they do. Back in the days if a child didn’t behave as its parents wanted they always were threatened with ” You better behave or the Russians will come and get You”, I have a feeling that might make a comeback :-)

Did You know that Sweden once upon a time actually was a super power here in Europe? The Baltic Sea was actually more or less completely inside the Swedish territories. Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, northern Poland and northern Germany was actually all Swedish at the same time for a while. It didn’t last very long though and eventually the Russians took Finland from us. Later on we got Norway, much to their surprise since they actually was on their way to break free from Denmark.

We “got” Norway since we had helped to bring down Napoleon, Denmark was on Napoleons side and Copenhagen was heavily bombed bt the Britain navy because of the fear that Napoleon would use their ships against Great Britain. Norway was allowed to have their own constitution and allowed to have their own official language, something they hadn’t been allowed  to under Danish rule. The united kingdom of Sweden-Norway lasted almost 100 years but the Norwegians wanted to be independent which I fully understand and broke free. Thankfully we had a king, Oscar the second, who understood that a war never would solve anything so he did let them go peacefully. Besides, we had tried to take Norway by war before and never managed to do so, “we” even killed our own king (Carl the twelfth) to stop one of those useless wars.

This could be the reason I didn’t sleep especially long last night.

I woke up at 4 am today and it was just impossible to go back to sleep again even if it now is pitch black at that time, well not entirely pitch black because of the full moon. So I went outside in the rather cool temperature and tried to get a good photo of it. It was just impossible to get a clear shot of it though, I blame the atmosphere :-)

Lots of fog outside the village.

I’m feeling robbed of the morning mist, I could see it everywhere but in our village. It was cool enough and the sun rose so there should have been som here too. There was however lots of dew this morning so it was easy to see all the webs this morning. I’m surprised that we have this many flies in this area considering how many spiders we have :-) and also counting all insect-eating birds and bats this should be a fly free zone to be honest :-)

I was talking to a neighbor some time ago, he sighed and said we’ve bought another car again. So I said isn’t it tractors You tend to buy a lot of? and he said, yeah, that too :-) Today I saw this car so I guess he bought one more :-) :-)
DSC_0048
They have loads of tractors :-) :-) The last time I heard about it they had eleven :-)

The moose flies have started to hatch further south so it’s just a matter of time until they start flying here too. No more forest walks for a while unless we’re having really cold mornings that forces even those devils to stay calm. I rarely say I hate anything but I do hate those flies! They almost didn’t exist in this country thirty years ago and I guess it is the warmer climate that helps them spread northwards. I really don’t like saying this but I think we need a really cold winter without any snow so the ground freeze way down and kill most of them.

When I paint in the neighbor factory I’m all alone the entire time and have lots of time to let my mind wander of in its own paths :-) Last week I started to think about if we didn’t have the internet, would it still be possible to write a sort of blog anyway? I think it would but it would be time-consuming and pretty expensive in the long run :-) First we have the problem of finding each other. It could start by just being two persons writing to each other and one of them would invite a third person. So if I would like people in another country to read my letter blog I would have to know a second person in another country.

I couldn’t see the Deerstalker this morning but the doe was there and she followed us just like he usually does :-)

DSC_0055

So I would write something like I already do and then mail a letter, including photographs to the persons reading my blog. They would then respond by writing a comment to me that. I would then have to answer all comments I’ve gotten in one new letter that I then would send to everyone reading my blog :-) If a new comment would be sent to me I would have to do it all again but I think I would skip all photos after the first mail I had sent away to everyone :-) It would be even more letters if we, like we made a comment to one of the other followers who then most likely would answer to that comment :-) :-) It actually could work :-)

So if the internet one day collapses we will still be able to keep this up if we wanted to :-) It would take time though so perhaps we could be happy if there came a new blog once a week? :-) It’s time for a pot of tea and then to fall asleep in front of the tv :-)

It is dark when I get up in the mornings now, especially today when I start working one hour earlier than the rest of the week. It’s autumn so I really can’t hope for anything else :-) But I could see some ground fog and thought why not bring a camera with me and stop on the way to take some photographs?. So I did but I brought the Minolta I’m trying right now, so You won’t see any of those photos until next month I think. I try to send at least four rolls of film to be developed each time and I’m only on that first roll yet :-)

We’re having a really mixed weather here today, strong winds, lots of clouds but still lots of sunshine but also lots of rain. Short lived showers but enough to make me keep my kitchen door closed, too bad since it actually is quite nice when it doesn’t rain. It feels like we will get thunder today, the flies who still hangs around behaves like that but I’ve watched the real-time lightning site and no thunder is even close to us, it still hangs around in Denmark, a bit further south than yesterday. We’ll have much the same weather tomorrow but without the rain they say.

The night was just as warm as the day has been and we’ve mostly had really hard showers. Thunder was predicted but it sort of stopped in Denmark but the more northern thunderstorms in Norway did pass over to Sweden. Autumn has arrived and with it its weather. From now on we’ll have cooler weather with showers every now and again.

The rain did stop to fall when I arrived here at home and we even got some sunshine for a while, long enough for the dogs and I to take a walk to the bog and home again. Now the sun is hiding behind dark grey clouds again and I think it is just a matter of time until the rain starts to fall again.

I didn’t bring any digital camera with me on the walk after work but I did bring a camera. When I bought my Minolta XGM two other camera houses sort of came along :-) I have to admit that I really didn’t want the two others but it was three cameras in that auction so what to do if I wanted the xgm :-) It was two other Minolta’s, one X-300 and one 5000. I thought I just as well try them and see if they worked because the info in the auction said the seller didn’t know if they worked. So two days ago I decided to try the x-300.

It works much like the xgm and it seems to work just fine as well. I have no wish to keep it tough but I think I’ll give it to someone I know who wants to start photography as a hobby too. I’ll just take this roll of film I have in it now, pack it and send it to that person. After that I’ll try the 5000 but I think I need another lens for that one since it is a fully automatic camera. If it works I’ll most likely give it to someone who wants an old-fashioned camera, I really have enough with cameras as it is :-)

I’m not used to take black and white photos and it is much more difficult to take good b&w photos than color ones.

There’s also a few other plastic foils and tapes I can get. He also said that I even could try a red nail polish and just put thin layers on until it was dark enough and still possible to see through it. It is amazing what people who have cars as hobbies knows about all kind of odd things :-)

Almost balmy this morning.

DSC_0067

This morning was balmy compared to yesterday’s morning, 5C (41F). Lots more fog as well but it evaporated so much faster because it was as warm as it was. Lots more sounds around as well but no man-made thankfully. Even a few birds were singing which is rather unusual this time of year. Normally they just fly around eating as much as they can before the move south and those staying the winter are usually quite busy feeding the last younglings for the year.

Yesterday morning there were hunters out by the bog so we couldn’t go there to take any foggy photos, today no hunters were out but the fog had already left when we arrived. I love walking there anyway but it is a bit annoying that I can’t walk everywhere when ever I feel like it. Well I better get used to it because the hunting season will continue until late February and to be honest, these hunters do think about us walking around too, they could have been out there every day if they wanted to and they do think about what’s best for the wildlife, not just to shoot anything that moves around.

I did the same with the old Kodak camera as I did with the Rolleicord camera. I placed the little flashlight inside it and closed it. I couldn’t find any leaks at all and that confused me a lot. I handled the camera in the worst ways just to see if any light could be seen but no but then I realised what might be wrong! There’s a little round window, with red see through plastic on the back side of the camera. It is there so I can see how far I must advance the film so I can take another photo. It is the only way that I can see how many photos I’ve taken as well so it must be uncovered.

The problem is that it isn’t that red any longer, it’s sort of yellowish  instead and it looks like it fits to where the light damages are in the photo. So now I must find a relatively  dark red see through tape to place over the old one and I think it might be best to also cover the little window in between shots as well just to be sure. So where to find that dark red see through tape? I doubt a toy store can help me this time but perhaps a hobby store can? I’ll see if I can find one on the net that has it. Otherwise I’ll try normal see through tape and color it red myself.

As soon as that’s done I’ll order some film and try the old camera again, the black and white film isn’t especially expensive so I can continue trying lots of times until I’ve fixed the problem :-) I do like black and white photos but to be honest it’s much more difficult to get good photos, especially when one doesn’t know the result until the film is developed :-)

I woke up to a rather cold morning today, only 2,8C (37F) when we were out walking. I have to say that even if I had to wear a fleece jacket the morning still was pretty wonderful. It was so quiet that the sounds my shoes made towards the gravel sounded so loud they would wake up the world. Not a single fly disturbed me and life just felt pretty good :-)

I had planned to go to Falköping to pick up Orvar’s medicine early this morning and I wanted to bring one of my older but not too heavy cameras with me. The problem is that they tend to leak in light so the film got more or less destroyed. But how to find those leaks I wondered for a long while until two days ago. I asked a work friend who knows a lot about everything if he knew if there was some kind of flashlight that was so small it would fit into a camera.

He was thinking for a long time until he smiled and said that I should go to a toy store, He knew they sold key chains that also worked as a tiny flashlight. So the first thing I did yesterday when I went to Falköping was to go to the only toy store I know they have there and yes they did have such a key chain :-) The good thing is that the batteries in it are solar-powered! So if the lights get weak I just put it in the sunlight for a while and then it works perfectly again :-)

DSC_0058

So last night when it was dark I put the tiny flashlight in my Rolleicord and voila! I found where it leaked in light. It is the lid that actually fits good but it doesn’t take much to make it loosen its grip just enough to let in light. So I loaded the camera with a roll of black and white film, taped black soft tape (we call that kind of tape for electric tape because it’s perfect to use when connecting two electric cables and keep that connection water proof) over the edges of the lid. I’m pretty sure it didn’t leak any light this morning.

I drove to Falköping so I would be there around 9 and realised that they wouldn’t open the pharmacy until 9:30 :-) So I started to walk around the town square taking photos. I had already taken one at home and double exposed it :-) and did the same with the first one I took in the town :-) I sort of had forgotten how it works :-) The rest eleven photos should be ok though. They were opening a small market this morning and people never mind if one takes photos with one of these old cameras so I could walk around quite undisturbed the entire time :-) I won’t send in this roll of film until I have four rolls of film ready to be developed, this was the third one. I can say that I wish I had brought more film and the electric tape because twelve photos was just too few.

Now I’ll do the same with my almost 100-year-old Kodak, it too leaks light and even if I did tape it almost everywhere the last time I tried it, it still leaked in light somewhere. That camera however will only allow me to take 8 photos because the negatives will be so much bigger. I was amazed however how sharp photos I got from that old camera!

This and the following photos comes from the Rolleicord camera. They were originally color photographs with ugly red injuries from light leaks (You'll see that in the next photo). But I could make them look much better by making them look old in my editing program.

It is time for a pot of tea and perhaps something to eat. I never got any ice cream this morning, I just didn’t want to stay in the town after taking all photos and getting the medicine because the coffee and tea shop wouldn’t open for another half hour when I left the pharmacy. Well, Orvar will need more medicine in 40 days so I’ll get the chance again :-)

 

This is how almost all photos looked like before the editing. I do hope I found all leaks now!

This is Varnhem's Abbey church. The abbey was demolished but the church was saved.

This is a cafe just beside the church. The church is a huge tourist attraction now days.
