Stearinljus

Stearinljus
I don't like November. Dark and gloomy and cold. We use a lot of stearinljus this time of the year. This is from a recent sitting at my favorite cafe Malmens konditori. Shot with the nifty fifty at f/1.8 which means that it is impossible to see the guy cleaning the windows at the eatery at Vikingaplan.

You have set the mood for the days ahead here in England.

I complain about the dark here in Boston Massachusetts. I left work EARLY at 5:30pm last night in the pitch dark and it distressed me. Your Stearinljus is just what i needed in my office window. but no open flames at our desks.

Here's to solstice and the turning of the days. 40 or so days from now...

I love November precisely for these reasons...

Love the Depth of Field. Quite inspirational Stef. I must give this a try.

That's a beautiful, evocative photo. But what is stearinjus? The candle?

This is wonderful. I need to put my own nifty fifty back on the camera and wander around for a while.

Stearinljus means candle in Swedish. No matter if it is made of Paraffin wax, or anything else.
