Finally I had some time to go through the photos from Swedish Air Force Museum and especially from DC-3 exhibition. Which, to me, is one of the most interesting museums and exhibitions so far.
As for historical background, DC-3 was shot down by Soviet MIG-15s according to investigations, during it’s spy operation over Baltic Sea. Obviously, Soviets didn’t admit that for quite a while due to political reasons, but now that everything is public, we seem to know the truth that government wants us to know. So, enjoy the pictures (hope they are OK, even though all shot through the glass and without any tripod) and make sure to visit the museum if you will be in Sweden. Trust me, it is worth it! Some photos might be not really pleasant for some people, so, please read on if you want to see those.
Love mechanical complexity? Well, we have some for you! Swedish mechanical classics that made the history. I will not write much today. Just enjoy these state of the art engines and let me know what you think. All photos are taken with my lovely Canon 1100D + kit lens @ M-Mode madness! 🙂 Postprocessing: RawTherapee + Gimp!
And I mean this is the classics. Not a single microcontroller. Not a single line of code! And everything worked as a charm! Think of today, when your car wouldn’t start because the temperature is below 0 …
This is not quite part 2, as part 1 had different name. I just had some free time this morning and managed to get some more pictures done. Pictures from museum are still under work, but they are getting closer and closer! 🙂 Anyhow, meanwhile enjoy this ones.
You don’t see those vehicles on the main street quite often, do you?
Deep under ground @ Linköping, stands the garage of hotel. Some nice graffiti there! I mean, garage is quite crapy, but if someone destroys your car, you can at least enjoy the art on the walls. 🙂
And if that was not enough, here goes another one.
Just a random bottle on the street took my attention. Somehow the whole city was full of bottles. Like there would be “empty glass exhibition” or smth.
Here is my very first trial on street photography, which I was never a big fan of, but since we were quite bored last Sunday in Linköping, we went out to take some pics. Also, this is my first trial of going completely “M-Mode” (usually use aperture priority), which turned out to be very cool. Of cause, the main thing is the visit to “Flygvapenmuseum” (Swedish Air Force Museum), but those photos are still under processing, so stay tuned! 🙂
As usually, any constructive feedback is warmly appreciated, so please let me know what you think.
Well, here it is. Some of the pictures I’ve taken with my phone (no post-processing at all) in Stockholm. As usually, the ones taken with DSLR still require post-processing and, quite unfortunately, for the most part, those are pictures of people and I didn’t manage to get release from them, so can’t really post. Sorry for that. But just to keep it shared, posting the stuff from the phone.
First is the most important one! During my stay in Stockholm, Finland was celebrating it’s independence day, so even in Sweden we’ve found the way to have a bit of celebration of that! Happy independence day, Lovely Country!
2 above pictures are from lovely “Kvarnen” restaurant, where we had our dinner. The restaurant is absolutely amazing and the quality of service is awesome! We were 40 people coming there at the same time and there was no delay with service! Warmly recommended!
Being a big fan of beer, I’ve gotten a recommendation from me mate to visit “Akkurat” pub in Stockholm. We were discussing this for a couple of years, but unfortunately during all my trips, I’ve never had time to go there. Now I finally managed to do so and I must say that even though the pub looks quite like “nothing extra”, the beer and snack selection there is fantastic! So, next time in Stockholm, make sure to visit it!
So, all in all, the trip was great! Lots of new thoughts and ideas! More pictures to come! So, stay tuned and remember that your opinion is very valuable, so please leave a comment!
