Kategori: Desolation X

DESOLATION X – DENNA KATEGORI INNEHÅLLER fotografier av ödsliga platser och miljöer från var som helst i vår direkta omgivningen där vi råkar befinna oss och som beskriver ödesmättnad, dysterhet och dunkelhet, mystik, ensamhet och liknande. Det roliga är att du kan ta en bild mitt i en stad som du ändå anser symboliserar t ex ensamhet, beroende av dess innehåll.

Bilderna är till större delen tagna av mig själv men jag hoppas snart även att ni bloggbesökare skall ladda upp era egna dystra bilder från era skogar och marker eller städer eller övergivna hus m.m.!

Desolation X = Rånäs, nytt

Tänkte det var dags för lite nya desolation-bilder igen.  Ni får fortfarande lov att skicka in era egan foton så lägger jag upp dem. Det fixar du enkelt genom att klicka här

Jag sitter och surfar efter kontorsartiklar och nu är klockan ca 14:35 och jag började omkring kl 10:00-tiden i förmiddags; d.v.s. att jag suttit här och glott på pennor i fyra timmar! På nåt så hopplöst roligt som kontorsmaterial, bara för att jämföra och kolla och så vidare men det ena leder till det andra. Så mot slutet satt jag och jämförde olika snussorter


Desolation X

IT’S BEEN QUITE A WHILE SINCE I LAST WROTE here but I am going to change that soon and start being more frequent here again so I am not gone for good. In the meantime I wanted to shoe some images of a place me an my brother found when we were out driving saturday morning the weekend we were at Gefle Metal Festival and we had nothing to do but to take a look at the surrounding nature. When I saw this desolated house where no one lives in and where the grass stans high all over I immidiately thought of my Desolation X project; it’s perfect for this.

Not much to say really. I don’t even remember what that little hole we lived in was called but obviously near outside Gävle. So go ahead and enjoy these photos. They are run through heavy filtering using Snapseed as you all probably can see.

See ya’ll soon. Enjoy the sombre colors of the beautiful autumn that lays upon us now. Sweden is a wondrous place this time of year I think.


Desolation X [Vistor Marie]

Hello. Long time, no see. Will get to the post writing once I have posted theses photos of desolation from Marie Zackariasson again :)

This time I give you a pair of photos. She describes them as follows:


Desolation X [Visitor Marie’s contribution]

I got another photo from Marie Zackariasson which had a really nice touch to it. She says it was shot during a walk on a path called Roslagsleden, Täby (Northern Stockholm) in 2015 and it depicts an old military bunker, and it made her think of all wars that were fought in the past and the fact that it is still going on today in our modern world and has simply never really stopped since way back in time.

YET AGAIN, MARIE ZACKARIASSON PROVIDES US with another shot of desolation and it is another one from Tobago, too. This one is a nice one. It’s a car getting eaten by mother nature. What was earth will be earth! Captured with a digital system camera Marie catches a moment in time. I love those kinds of pictures of cars breaking down by nature. Not even steel can stand against her! The photo was taken back in 2009.

Here’s Marie’s description of her photo:

Mother nature takes back what is hers by right
Picture #2 from Tobago, 2009. A car that certainly has done its time on Earth!


Desolation X [Visitor Marie’s Contribution]

WE HAVE ANOTHER PHOTO FROM Marie Zackariasson. This time it is a color photo all the way from Tobago with cheery colors but still desolated so it fits the genre well. It is taken back in 2009 with her Digital System Camera.

Marie Zackariasson’s Contribution to Desolation X

this time I thank Marie Zackariasson for sending her photo of the northern hemisphere from Alta, Norway, in November 2016, while she was awaiting the northern lights to show up. It is shot with her Digital System Camera. Did it, Marie? It looks like one of those nights. Though I have never seen one myself :( This photo brings a strong feeling of desolation and a feeling of how small we are in this universe. Night skies are always fascinating and this is no exception.


Desolation X by Visitor Mikael Granqvist

I am happy to post the first photo in the Desolation X-library that has been uploaded by one of you visitors, namely Mikael Granqvist from Umeå, Sweden, who shot the following photo with his digital system camera. His own desription of the photo is as follows:


Upload Your Photos To The Desolation X-project!

Upload Your Photos To Support Desolation X-project (Sticky Post)

As you all have seen I post photographies under the name Desolation X. You can’t have missed it! And if you like the photos or the idea of this project – Please, feel free to upload your own photos to support the Project. I would love to have your photos sent to me! Maybe they are taken in another country, maybe just outside your door, in the woods, on the fields, hills and valleys or lakes or whatever, just as long as it has this feeling of melancholy in it. Some kind of depressive weight to it. Maybe you don’t see it the way I do, so just post the photos you believe will be suitable and I will publish what I like, but probably all. Just think of that no persons shall be on it. Otherwise, a dysphoric environment could be in the cities or in the country or in a house or a barn or wherever, really. You set the standard by what you upload.


Desolation X – Natures Expression of Depression

A Hidden Oak Grove And Its Powers

Yes, it might get a little much just now but it is quite nice with a photo here and there. Well, it is to fill out the void that appears when I’m a bit busy doing other things than posting. So every time a Desolation X pops up you know it is my bad conscience that is making me do it. The photo below was taken on a very dark spring day this year. And the sky was heavy and looked as if it were made of iron almost. There was a special kind of atmosphere surrounding this oak grove that lay hidden from the road. Behind a bit of ordinary birch wood, a massive open green space appeared with a bunch of old oaks, some alive, some dead.
