Ex Factory – Where Cementa Used To Live

 

The Cement Factory was an important part of the prosperous development of  20th century Sweden. In the mid 1970’s, competition stiffened and the site was deemed too small to be profitable in the long term. In 1979 the machinery stopped for the last time. Quite a few jobs disappeared, but since small businesses have been thriving in the area in increasing numbers after WW2, most of the workforce found new jobs over time. In just a few years after Cementa closed it’s doors, Paroc opened up manufacturing of stone based wool for insulation and is today the largest employer in Hällekis. Population dropped by about 30% from WW2 up to 1970, and has since stayed pretty much the same. The surrounding landscape including Kinnekulle and lake Vänern offers stunning scenery that show lots of trace of the historic importance of the land around Kinnekulle, including Swedens oldest functioning church Västerplana Kyrka and Husaby, where Swedens first christian king was christened and baptized.

The Wasteland – Closer Than You Think

I personally enjoy visiting those abandoned spots in everyday society that has been forgotten or simply hangs there in limbo until suddenly the town or its owner remembers it and decides to do something about it. Until then, they are there for us to enjoy, let fantasy rip, use visually…

Blur is the new black!

A bit geeky, but I love taking blurry snaps of stuff and let people figure out what it is. A fuss, someone? 😉

In the night, the shadows hides from the light

In a city or town, there is quite a bit of light even during night. That gives the chance of interesting shadows.

Darkness Is Very Special

This image has been posted here before. But now is the season of the year when it gets really, really dark. At least up here in The North. For me this time of year yields more interesting photography. And a special challenge: what to photograph when there is very little light.

At night it gets dark. Especially during winter.

Steps on the beach

After a day of hefty rains the next day is sunny and warm, making the sand dry up with a uniform crust on the top it. Another day on the beach of Roseto degli Abruzzi

After the rain: crust

Out - Photographer Peter Lindberg

Rimini, Italy in March 2013

People in the distant. Cloud-shrudded skies and a steady wind. But winter is letting go. Soon comes summer, the heat and all those beach-dwellers. Is it better right now? I think so. Me. You, the sand and the sea.
