Schweizer Kamel

High up on the Swiss alps, you'll find... a camel?


A Tulip at Klara Church

I think it's a tulip.

Wood Anemones Blooming in Hansta

About a month after their blue siblings, the wood anemones cover the ground in Hansta.

This year's cherry blossoms - a bit later than usual but just as beautiful.

A beautiful sunset.


Godox TT350

I decided to get a better flash for better portraits, and with the Godox TT350 being available for only $120 at the local photo store, I took the plunge.


Puluz 45cm Round Diffuser

I knew I wanted a big diffuser to go with my Godox TT350. The salesman at the camera store recommended a $140 Joe McNally Ezybox Speed-Lite 2 Plus, but given that the flash unit itself only cost $120 I balked.

Would a $25 diffuser do the job? Turns out it did, and very well indeed.


Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage

The same low price as Amazon's Glacier, but with instant retrievals and a cost structure that you don't have to be a superhuman AI to understand? Backblaze's B2 Cloud Storage has a very compelling offer.


Silverdals Griftegård

An old military cemetery.


Signs of Spring in Hansta

Spring is here - and it's the blue siblings of the wood anemones that are first up through the layer of last year's dead leaves.


Blindsight by Peter Watts

I think Peter Watts is trying to tell us that he isn't conscious. Besides being a science-fiction version of The Ego Tunnel by Thomas Metzinger, Blindsight is a story that sets out the author's argument that consciousness is an evolutionary mistake and that we would be much better if we would just let our unconscious get rid of that slow and unnecessary awareness.

The book is good enough that I'd be willing to buy that argument if he'd reveal that it was written unconsciously.


Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM

This lens was as close to an impulse buy as I'll ever get. When going from crop-frame sensor to full-frame I had to upgrade not just "normal", day-to-day lenses, but also the ones I use for dance and concert photography. I think I did a single search on Prisjakt and then went out and bought this lens.

It was a good buy.


The Ego Tunnel by Thomas Metzinger

Theories about what consciousness is tend to disintegrate into either hand-waving or mysticism. While Metzinger's attempt falls into the former category, he does manage to put up quite a good fight before going down: the goals he sets himself are the right ones, and when he finally does start to become vague it is only because empirical science hasn't yet reached that point.


Basler Münster

A church with a great view over the river. The church was built starting in 1019, making it celebrate its 1000-year anniversary this year.
