I’m often thinking about how to once more get back to rytterfalk.com - it’s not as easy as you might think. It’s been several years now and both you and me we’ve grown quite a bit in body and soul. I for example had the trip of my life with my son that some of you follow closely thru my Facebook page.. and don’t get me started with photography! It’s an area of my life that I truly neglected and that i miss more than.. anything? I’ve used my Sigmas only when forced and my iPhones the rest of the time. Why you might ask, I do too. But mobile photography has more to offer than you might think and also gives a feeling of satisfaction when you easy as that take a shot and develop it directly “on the run” and share instantly with the world.
I still have a dream of an X3F developer for iPad, It shouldn’t be that hard to create a img0001mini.x3f that has enough info to get a speedy development done.. a bit of Swift and Metal and we should be on our way! But that’s for another post..
In February 2013 my life changed dramatically with the early birth of my son who was born with the rare and somewhat difficult chromosome disorder named Trisomy 9 mosaic. In the first year we almost went to hospital as often as we went home and I’m actually right now writing this from hospital with William waiting for surgery. He’s a true gift and I wouldn’t change him for the world..
But my love affair with you guys and my other child – my site, has never left my mind and every once in a while I’ve been wondering what’s missing and the answer is simple. This! There always was this thinking ahead – what to write, what do do, what would you say – reactions and statistics.. New ideas that I felt that I JUST HAD TO SHARE and that activated all those little cells up there! But now, who do I share too? “One” friend? A coworker? Someone at a busstop? Life isn’t meant to be like this. :)
I also noticed thanks to some observant users that someone added some mean code to comments and therefore users of Windows got a virus / trojan warning every time they entered my site. Today, I’m happy to inform that my site is clean as a babys butt! At least should be according to Nortons online / website check tool.
So, since William was born I’ve been using Facebook instead of rytterfalk.com and I think it should be the other way around. So I’m trying to convince myself that it’s ok for a while to post more from life and when ready – about photography too. But for those of you that want the “old” Sigma nut head, I’m still here and I’m still amazed with how great those shots look. (especially on the new iMac 5k)..
