I'm in for another year here (my 4th). It is a great way to get some shooting done - and of course to spend some time with @LisaW and the rest of you people here in this part of the cafe:)

My week 1 starts with the calendar week 1 (4th-10th Jan) otherwise I'll get confused :confused:

Your 4th challenge? Impressive! Got any tips to share? Do you go out every week especially to take pictures for this challenge?
Also would love to see Denmark. Chances are we're going to Sweden or Denmark on vacation this year. We're still not sure.

It will be weird not seeing your images along with Lisa's at the same time. But then it relieves some of the pressure off you as she gets better and better:)

Hi Morten. I'm looking forward to you photographs for 2016.

Hi Frank, me and my daughter try to go out to shoot every Sunday for a couple of hours, but it is not always possible. Then we have to be creative and shoot something in the house or garden :)
And of course if anything else had be shoot during the week I use that :)
Let me know if you come to Denmark.

The co-shooter is such a beautiful girl!! I love the turntable. We have one in our basement. I've been thinking that I need to turn it on for the grandkids. I don't think they have ever seen one working before. They alway come to visit on Sunday evenings. Maybe I will do that tonight!!

Thanks a lot Terri
I'm really enjoying my turntable, I hope you got a chance to show yours to your grandchildren

I can see you have a really patient model;)
Ha ha - yeah I'm lucky ;)

Thank you Jeff

Morten - you have quite the music collection and you always photograph them so well! And as far as your second image is concerned - well, what can I say? Perfection! :)
Much appreciated Lyndee :)

Well, pulp fiction is one of my favs... so what can I say. And to top this, you've done a portrait of a coming Cafe star!
Pulp Fiction is fantastic - many thanks Aaron

+1 to Aaron.
No further comments to say...
Klaus
Thank you Klaus

I second what Lyndee said to the letter.
Many thanks John

Two great classic images. I like the negative space and pulled back contrast in the Portrait. A real pleasant and classic smile as well.
Thanks a lot Ivan

Terrific shots to start your series.
Many thanks Art

Great start, Morten.

Wonderful selective focus on the needle arm and I love how your composed the photo. Cannot remember the last time I played any records.

Lovely shot of Lisa, she is growing up so pretty and I like your composition here too.

Love the portrait of your daughter!
The Pulp Fiction shot also impresses. And it's one heck of a good soundtrack! :)

Let me know if you come to Denmark.
Not sure. My father in law works for Volvo Trucks. He has spend 50% of his time in Sweden and he has A LOT of Scandic (the hotels) points which we can use before he retires. So if we would go to Denmark or Sweden; and we find Scandic hotels we can stay for free. But we don't want to stay in a city the whole vacation. We need some nature too.
