It’s been a while. Again. There are many reasons for that; among them is the fact that the Swedish winter gets really, really dark if there’s no snow. The weather is changing, so usually there is no snow until January or so – and this winter has been no different. And let’s face it; without light, it’s hard to get any photography done. I’ll also admit to being lazy; I do have a flash, but I haven’t found the energy to use it.


Today, I brought my dog with me to visit the open air museum we’ve been to a number of times. Never have I been there before during winter, and it was a pleasant experience. You’ll see why.

I tried to focus less on detail, which I am usually very fond of, and more on some kind of larger view. I admit – I did get details every here and there, I can’t really help it. But at least I tried, and that’s got to count for something, no? 🙂

Oh, it should also be noted that just for once, I chose to show these photographs as semicolour. With snow, as you will see, colour has a way of vanishing at a very high degree. It’s only where other things such as buildings have strong colour that it’s actually there.

As you may have noticed, I prefer black and white over colour any day. But even for me, it’s interesting to show some colour every now and then.






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. 🙂
