  1. Monty 4. Maybe Mag 46 but in that case I might just have smoked bad cigars plus that I'm not a Corona Gorda fan.
  2. I love these! I just started to shot film myself, 135 with a Pentax S3 and a Canon EOS 650 and 120 film with a Mamiya 645 1000s. Haven’t developed anything yet, though. Skickat från min iPhone med Tapatalk
  3. RyJ Short Churchills and PSD5 both come in 10ct boxes and are in the same ball park as the Punch in price.
  4. Got my first Pfizer shot today, Can’t say I feel anything at all but it’s just been 5 hours.
  5. Is this really true though? To me it feels like something a CC smoker says because that's what people expect you to say. I would say that most of the cigars I smoke are good. One in ten I'd say is mediocre and maybe one in fifthteen is bad. I honestly don't feel like I have to "hunt" for good cigars.
  6. Well, I've only had the Partagas and I've smoked three from my box, 2018, 19 and last summer. They went (for me) from "interesting" to, atleast the one I had last summer, one of my best smokes in the last five years and undisputed #1 of 2020.
  7. So I sold three new prints today. I didn't make these images to sell them at first, it was more like an experiment I did when I bought my last camera. It's 50 or so different photos of acrylic paint in a tub that I stitched together digitally to make it look like bouquets of flowers. But now I ended up printing them in an edition of 20 and sold a couple. Vildblommor (Wild flowers) I-III
  8. I've just smoked one cigar in february, a Partagas D4, TOS 16. It kicked ass.
  9. Yes, and I love it. Not really what I was referring to, though. I kind of liked having a thread where people just posted random stuff that happened during their week and not just a picture of someones hand holding a cigar. And I liked it especially after a year like this when you don't... get to see that many new things...
  10. Maybe it could be an idea to have a dedicated weekly review photo thread? I kind of miss the ”old” A Week In Pictures when it wasn’t just another cigar thread.
  11. It didn't even take a week, now the snow is all gone.
  12. I don't get Zacapa 23, it taste kind of like a cheap cognac to me and not really rum-like at all. My favorite right now is the Dos Maderas PX 5x5 from Spain.
  13. Not really what I normally shot and not really my kind of "style" but why not try something new in 2021. And I really have to put my new lenses to use.
  14. Haha. But yes, seriously. Why wouldn't one want to listen to someone talk about booze and cigars
  15. Happy new year! Yeah, we had some friends over and we.. we drank. Lucky me I don’t get hungover.
  16. Happy birthday! How did you like the Partagas? The one I had this summer is my top smoke of the year
  17. So, some more photo stuff. I entered a photo competition called Neutral Density Awards https://ndawards.net with a series called Stockholm Rush Hour. The series is a documentation of different subway stations in Stockholm during the first couple of months of covid. I didn't get any of the top spots but at least a Honorable Mention in the category ”Architecture - Other”. Not sure if I'll make prints out of any of these.
  18. So, after I've spent the last couple of months looking for the right print shop that had the right kind of paper, I finally printed and sold my first photos. They do a lot of work for galleries and museums here in Stockholm and I'm more than happy with how they turned out and its a great feeling knowing that I've been involved in the whole process, from taking the picture, editing it, finding a print shop, choosing paper, doing test prints and having them framed, signed and delivered to the buyer. Its been a shit year for me and my family, so it feels good that I finally got it done and ending 2020 on a some what higher note. And it will be a lot easier to justify to my wife that I buy all this camera equipment... Anyway. They'll both be in an edition of 20 over two different sizes. From the series City Landscapes - Liljeholmen Printed on Canson Photographique 310g Fine Art paper. 50x33cm (19.6x13 in) and 70x46cm (27.5x 18 in) both in an edition of 10 From the series A Stream of Light - Pool Printed on Canson Photographique 310g Fine Art paper 30x40cm (11.8x15.7 in) and 50x70cm (19.7x 27.5 in) both in an edition of 10
