What if the human eye could only see the world in black and white? Wouldn't that be extremely boring? That is the question I ask myself whenever I see all the wonderful colorful things around me. And almost every time I see something beautiful and colorful I want to pick up the camera to save the view in an image format. Maybe not as great as experiencing it while I'm there, but saving a part of the moment to remind me later is better than nothing!

I'm a teenage boy from Gothenburg Sweden and since I bought my D5000 at the end of 2009, I've been carrying it almost everywhere I know I might find something interesting.
On several occasions I wish I were more creative when I find some interesting subjects. I find difficult to turn a simple, boring subject into an artistic supercool photo. Like someone who takes a photo of a random thing in some bizarre environment and almost succeeds to tell a story to the viewer only by showing the photo. I always wonder what their creativity comes from and I have looked for inspiration, and tried several times without luck! I would guess it is only my creative mind that hasn't opened up successfully enough, but maybe I'm going to get on the right way sooner or later.
I have always felt better going the easy way. I try to find beautiful scenes and making the best out of it rather than finding a somewhat simple and boring scene and turning it into some super fantastic stunning piece of art. But that's my way for now and I'm satisfied so far!

Mostly these days I photograph almost everything interesting I see, if I got the camera with me. Although the photos I take that usually satisfy me most are my nature photos, and that is what I will mainly publish :)
