    Welcome aboard!
    Which subjects do you enjoy shooting?
    Do you work in color, b&w, or both?
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Hello Andreas, welcome. As you can see I'm a new member here, but doing Large Format for a very long time. I see you're in Sverige. My family is from Skåne omkring Lund i Malmöhus, Län, but came to America in 1882.

    Med vänliga Hälsning,
    Timothy Blomqvist

    Hello Timothy

    That's very interesting.
    In the year 1900 they used to say Chicago was Sweden's second largest city. As I understand it the American middle east region, especially Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and Iowa, was mainly where the Swedish immigrants settled.
    Your last name is very Swedish even today, right down to the (exact) spelling … still.
    Skåne is very dear to me, moms from Höganäs. I should really start to photograph that region, the places I know. 4x5 of course, for now.
    Cheers,
    Andreas

    If I had a single (1) sheet of 8x10 I would send it to you.

    Andreas, my family arrived in New York (before Ellis Island) and went by train to Moorehead, Minnesota. Then they traveled by wagon into Territorial Dakota, which became South Dakota. Where they homesteaded, there were no trees, no towns, no schools, no churches; bascially no civilization. Just grass as far as you can see and Lakota Sioux Indians riding up trying to get food. Hard times even for the indiginous people. When other immigrants showed up they were Germans. They stayed in Dakota for 13 years then moved east into Southwestern Minnesota. More rain to grow crops and lots of other Swedes, plus Danes and Norwegians. My great grandather was the one who emigrated and his sons were active photographers during those times, as money permitted.

    Hej Andreas, and welcome to the forum

    There are a few other Nordic members here. I'm from the U.K. originally, but based in Lund. Drop by for 'fika' and idle chat if you do come down this way.
