Instamatic, New Forest pony, England in 1970

With an Instamatic in England in 1970 with my parents and a friend. On our way home we went south to New forest and I took a picture of a tiny foal by the roadside. I would very much like to see these ponies again. I don´t know the exact location of this place.

The film used in this photograph was in an plastic cartridge and was called 126 film. The picture is direct positive and usually was shown in viewer or on the wall in a dark room. I have made a few adjustments to the scan and cleaned the sky from dust. The camera was simple with a fixed focal length and was best with landscape photography.

I share this picture with  Weekly Photo Challenge: Wish.

By the lake in the woods

imm024_25

In the night a lot of bats hunt above the water on this lake close to Hovdala castle in Sweden. But one can experience solitude in town as well as in the middle the woods. And I had in fact company on my trip to the woods. But I walk alone on many mornings on my way to work in town as most other people do. This picture is part of the last APS-film I took with my Minolta APS-camera in 2014. The APS-film is no longer manufactured.

I am sharing this post  with The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: Solitude.

 

Room

Weekly Photo Challenge: Room A room doesn´t have to be physically defined to form a room. From the urban design exhibition Bo01 in 2001 comes this picture. The boundaries of the different rooms are clearly defined. The grass in the foreground is limited by  red walls  and other outdoor spaces are also clearly defined. Nowadays the new development Western Harbour is situated on the site of the expo. Taken with Olympus OM-1.

More about Bo01 in english and swedish on Malmö´s site and in swedish on Wikipedia.

These pictures are taken at the arab horse races on Blommeröd arab stud and racing course, Sweden in august 2006. If I my memory is correct it is young people from the Youth Racing Club showing their arab horses in the middle picture. To photograph galloping horses is not always easy, you can forget all about finetuning sharpness and be happy that you get pictures of the horses in motion. But I have quite a few nice “cuddle pictures” of my daughter and the horses she takes care of from stables. Arab horses race in their own races and one of seven on a big racingday are usually arab races. Arab horses are usually a bit smaller with delicate limbs and heads which can sometimes be seen on the thoroughbreds that have quite a lot of arabs in their pedigree. And sometimes you can trace their pedigree as far back as the seventeenth or eighteenth century. I have met horses that are descended from famous horses and they are truly royal blood.

Bilderna från Blommeröds galoppbana på arabhästloppen är tagna 2006. Galoppbanan Strandängen ligger på Blommeröds arabstuteri vid Ringsjöns strand i Skåne. Bilderna är tagna i augusti och om jag minns helt rätt så är det ungdomar från Ung Galopp som visar upp sig på mittenbilden. Att hinna fota galopperande hästar är inte alltid lätt, man kan glömma allt om att finställa skärpa och fina bokeheffekter och vara glad att man får bilder på pållarna som alltid befinner sig i rörelse. Men har tagit rätt många fina “mysbilder” på min dotter och de hästar hon har hand om i samband med stallskötsel. Men här handlar det nu om arabhästar som ibland finns med som ett lopp av många andra på de stora galoppbanorna. Arabhästarna är lite mindre med smäckra lemmar och delikata huvuden och ingår i fullblodens stamtavla, vilket man ibland kan se på fullblodens huvudform. Jag har mött hästar som är ättlingar av berömda hästar och de är fantastiska. Fototriss på tema “Sport, lek och fritid“. Besök Fototriss för fler bidrag .
