Living in Scandinavia is all about accepting the inevitable stumble towards the cold and dark every year. I grew up with changing seasons so I’m very well practiced at swearing at the ones I don’t particularly like. This year feels colder and wetter than the last few so I’m taking that as an omen I [...]
It’s been a very cool summer here in Sweden. So cool that we’ve had the lowest peak temperature in 155 years. Great for those of us who love Spring since it’s been a seemingly endless Spring. Warm days and cool nights please me just fine so no complaints. However, I worry if this cool trend [...]
It’s like 2015 never even happened on this blog. Well, it did even if I don’t remember much of it. Here’s some photographic proof. Don’t forget to click to the next image page below to see more of them.
It is amazing how long I’ve left updating this blog. Ugh. Well, my life in Sweden has been full of diapers and lego and less with photography and pens. Even though it’s easier to post pictures than to write coherent text I’ve still not done even that. So, here’s some images from 2016 and I [...]

The title of this post is just put together from the names of the three events I attended recently. I’m too lazy to come up with one that works any better and it does sound kind of important. The weekend of June 15 this year was a big one for those in the Detroit area [...]
Walter P. Chrysler rescued automobile manufacturers before creating his own eponymous dynasty. During his reign Chrysler was known as the “engineer’s automobile”. Often stodgy in style they just as often led the industry in mechanical innovations. Like all long-lived companies there is a lot of history and lore which can be drawn upon to illustrate [...]
I’ve taken a lot of photos since my blog has gone silent. So….RANDOM PHOTO TIME!
A few weeks ago I took my first trip to Philadelphia which isn’t that far from my new digs in Pennsylvania. I went ostensibly for an NAWCC chapter mart where I could look over watches and such for sale. Afterwards I had planned to go to the Simone Foundation Automotive Museum with a fellow horological [...]
It’s funny how things reverse. Someone as old as me remembers hours in a chemical smelling darkroom practicing gesticular magic over RC paper (Dodge this! Burn that!) in order to bend the shimmering beams projecting downwards to my bidding. Photography was not just a skill but a bit of a black art then and those [...]
