I am interested in miniatures, animals, books and photography.

I have used several cameras in my life starting with the Instamatic my father bought on our way to Norway in 1963. My first real camera was a Yashica half-automatic camera bought in 1970 followed by a Canon ftb some years later. From the 1980s I photographed with Olympus OM1 with several lenses and from the late 1990s with several makes of small compact digital cameras alongside the analog Olympus and a Minolta APS camera bought in 2002. In november 2010 I at last bought a Nikon D300o on sale when a photo shop had to close. Some small compact cameras have varied in make over the years. Now I use the smart phone as a quick pocket-camera. I have a Nikon D3000 with three lenses that often travel with me in my backpack.

Thanks to my son for the name “Birdbrain”! For earlier pictures of birds please have a look at my main blog From My Horizon. I have a weather log on Weekly Weather  and  vintage photography is found on Vintage Photography 

I have also made an examination project during spring 2013 with pictures I have scanned from black an white films I took in the early 1970s. To look at them head for Moments in time (English) or to  Ögonblick i tiden (Swedish).

  1. Lovely. It is always to read people’s About-ma page and stories about cameras. In my About me page I show the photo from my first camera. Since 2008, I have had Nikon D300 and my newest is Nikon D750.

    Have a wonderful day!
