about me

I am a hobby photographer and I also like to write … I was on Internet in the beginning so that’s why I have a lot of blogs … curious and love to learn  … In the “beginning” it was HTML and WYSIWYG and now it is wordpress and tumblr ….

Birgitta – blogfia – FOTO chip … that’s me!

I have 2 Canons – Power Shot G12 and Canon EOS 6D (2013).

I am a retired teacher and educator – specialist education.
1 son, 2 daughters, 4 grandchildren – 2 boys and 2 girls.
Living in Lund, Sweden.
A free spirit …

Now I write poetry too – challenging myself writing haibun, haiku, cinquian …..

Working with pictures is a great hobby – I have flow all the time!

I am now totally lost in STREET PHOTOGRAPHING – showing the street life of people.

Thinking a lot of what Street Photographing is to me – reading  articles – getting inspired of other street photographers – take part in many SP groups in Internet …. learning …. enjoying …. living …

I shoot in Black & White …. and I go with the flow …

To me it is important  …

  • it’s public urban places
  • it’s people in my pictures
  • it’s (for me) unknown people
  • that anyone can be photographed
  • it’s never arranged pictures
  • to not interfere the situation
  • to always show my camera
  • show the life in streets by photographing people
  • to think twice when taking pictures of children
  • to like people but not always the situation
  • to keep political text away from street photos
    (politics has another arena)
  • to give the viewer opportunity for self-interpretation
  • with a spirit to not humiliate or insult
  • to show any kind of streetlife in my photos
