t’s that time of year. There are more gray days than sunny. All the leaves on the trees changes color from green to yellow. It’s getting colder every day. It is not long until the snow will cover the ground. It’s the same every year!

On a recent trip to Barcelona we stumbled upon a scene for a movie or television series. A lot of actors in old clothing, kids playing etc. I managed to take some few images.

It´s well known that Fuji X jpeg files are high quality. I have been a RAW shooter for many years, but in 2013 i converted from Nikon to Fuji. I kept on shooting RAW files with my Fuji´s, but just for the fun of it I decided to give the jpeg files a test. I was stunned! The jpeg files the X-T1 produce is the best I have ever seen. Here are som images SOOC, all settings done in camera. No post processing.

 

Apple cake – the making of….

Apple cake – the making of….

Apple cake. The most baked cake in Norway during the autumn. Nearly every household has apple trees in their gardens, and normally much more apples then needed. So the solution is production of apple wine, apple marmelade, apple cider and of course apple cake.

 

Voyage

Voyage

My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer early 2015. Of course it was a chock when we received the message. I felt anger and frustration. It was nothing I could do. We started to make images together. All the situations we went through as a couple. The result became “Voyage”.

 

01-iterum-stabit

The image illustrates how I felt when I received the message. Item Stabit, knocked to the ground.

02-falling

Falling illustrates the fear of losing my wife after the message from the hospital that she had cancer.

03-waiting-room

Cancer surgery. Waiting, 11 hours in the waiting room. No information given. Wife taken care of by health personal, time is running. Unanswered questions.

04-timeline

Surgery done! Soon she is starting hear chemo and radiation treatment. So far 2015 has been a bumpy track. But… it looks better in the future. We just follow the track and hope for the best.

05-arrival

Even when you have a serious and dangerous health condition, it´s possible to decide how your daily life will be. Witch cabin are the best on to live in? All of the have names, it´s up to us. “Happiness”, “Misery”, “Salvation” or “Peace”.

06-confusion

The doctors may have found more tumors! Everything is a mess, bad communication between different doctors and laboratories. Four failed biopsies, but still they see that something is not right! Confusion!

07-small-people

Our “Regular” hostpital don´t have the best equipment for accurate biopsies. My wife was sent to a hostpital specializing on cancer treatment. My wife said, Finn.. I feel so damn small, yes… we are small people in a big health system!

08-the-game

After being at several hospitals for new biopsies the health personal found more tumors. We felt like bricks in a game. We needed to start all over again, new surgery etc. The card say “Logistic problems, please return to start”

09-ups-and-downs

“Ups and Downs” Life is journey. Ups and downs. Some days are great, other days are not so great!

10-new-beginning

Treatment is over! Life is good!
