Despite the fact I have photographed so many weddings, I have rarely been doing it at Svartån (a stream floating through several cities in the county where I live). Today, early as hell, I brought Ella and the camera and went down there to take a look-see. Very quickly I realized that there were many different things to look at. Concrete, for one. I have to admit that although I didn´t like or enjoy concrete when I was younger, it has grown on me as I´ve gotten older.

When we were there, it was so early in the morning. We left home just before 5am and came back at ’bout 6.15 or so. Early morning combined with a very heavily gray sky and rain hanging in the air, made some of the photographs a bit un-sharp without me noticing. I am not apologizing for it, because I believe it can bring something interesting into a photograph.

Ah, well. I don´t think I have any other particular words of wisdom today, so – enjoy! 🙂















I am Sonya Malinka Persson. To me, photography is among the most beautiful things. There is such visual poetry in it if you know how to look.


Enjoy my work. 🙂
