Snow, Snow, Snow

Winter's here, all at once.


AI Photography

Generative AI in art is a firehose of cliches. But I have been positively surprised by its use in photography post-processing.


Uppsala Ljusfestival 2023

A festival with light-themed artworks in central Uppsala.


Yummy Lion

Someone has put a tongue on the stone lion outside of Dirty Coco - I think their food is too sweet, but maybe stone lions like to eat sweets when they're not about to be eaten by poets.


Different, But Same

...and now for something different, but kinda the same?

Lately I've been binging Berm Peak, previously known as Seth's Bike Hacks, and just like Educational Youtube it's one of those gems you find on YouTube. It has certainly inspired me, and although Seth is more gear-focused than I am with my now 19 year old bike, he keeps the joy of biking in the center.


Day of the Cinnamon Bun

"So you survived the day of the cinnamon bun?"

"Yes, we sold about a thousand of them."

"And now, you're happy to not see any of them until next year?"

"Oh no, I'm mad about cinnamon buns!"

My new favorite café.


Dystopian Kindergarten

Even places where kids laugh and play can seem eerily deserted and sad when there's nobody there.


Ett ord för blod by Faysa Idle

Ett ord för blod (A Word for Blood) tells the same story as Tills alla dör by Diamant Salihu, but from the perspective of someone whose family is involved in the brutal gang war.


Late Summer Biking at Järvafältet

I like all seasons, for different reasons - late summers always bring those comfortably warm evenings and golden sunsets where the world is embedded in amber. Perfect weather for biking around, and perfect weather for taking photos. Also, biking helps you scout out good spots and move between them while the sunset is in progress.


How to Split a MIDI Keyboard in Windows

Sophisticated MIDI keyboards like the Roland A-800PRO let you operate more than one instrument from them by splitting the keys into zones. For example, you can play background strings with the left side of the keyboard and the main instrument with the right side. But if all you have is an old Casiotone CT-640, you'll have to do it in software. For that, we'll use loopMIDI and MidiLayer.


Summer Sergel Sunset

It had rained, so I rushed home, grabbed the camera... ...and did not regret doing that.


Stefan Gechev Spring

These springs dot the landscape in Bulgaria. Great for road trips, where you just bring some empty bottles and can refill them as you go.


Abandoned Baths

An abandoned mineral bath hotel.


Troyan Monastery

The third largest monastery in Bulgaria (after the Rila and Bachkovo monasteries).


More Transformers of Gabrovo

Probably some other utility box in there, but it's a really unique form of street art.


The Arch of Freedom

A monument to the liberation of Bulgaria.
