Norge

I lived, worked and traveled in Norway for a while.

A few facts from that period:

The pictures were taken with the following cameras:

  • Olympus C860 (1.3MP)
  • Pentax EL2000 (2.3MP)
  • Fuji S602 (3.1MP)
  • Nikon D70 (6MP)
  • Minolta Dynax 7Xi (film)

The white Chevrolet once got the name “Kenny” from a German friend. This is because Kenny from Southpark was on the dashboard.

I learned at least three words of Hungarian. Pálinka. Igen. Egészségedre

Go to Svalbard (Spitsbergen)

Photography has evolved a lot.

I am now learning Czech. Zelené oči

There’s lots of wooden cabins in the middle of nowhere.

It is quite an amazing landscape.

Lot’s of (near) sunsets.

The wooden cabins are higly enjoyable.

You meet nice people in Norway (Norsko, Norvégia)

Bokeh no. 1: the definition

The term “bokeh” (pronounced /bɒkɛ) comes from the Japanese word boke (暈け or ボケ), which means “blur” or “haze”, or boke-aji (ボケ味), the “blur quality”.
In photography, bokeh is the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image, or “the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light.”

Holocaust Mahnmal

The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe (German: Denkmal für die ermordeten Juden Europas), also known as the Holocaust Memorial (German: Holocaust-Mahnmal), is a memorial in Berlin to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust.

It consists of a 19,000 square meter (4.7 acre) site covered with 2,711 concrete slabs or “stelae”, one for each page of the Talmud arranged in a grid pattern on a sloping field. The stelae are 2.38m (7.8′) long, 0.95m (3′ 1.5″) wide and vary in height from 0.2 m to 4.8m (8″ to 15’9″). Apparently, the stelae are designed to produce an uneasy, confusing atmosphere, and the whole sculpture aims to represent a supposedly ordered system that has lost touch with human reason.

Building began on April 1, 2003 and was finished on December 15, 2004. It was inaugurated on May 10, 2005, sixty years after the end of World War II, and opened to the public on May 12 of the same year. It is located one block south of the Brandenburg Gate, in the Friedrichstadt neighborhood.
