Who Cares About Art?

Jeg bare må skryte litt :-)

Denne medlinga dumpa nettopp ned i postkassa mi:
"Your shot "Who Cares About Art" has been chosen for the Chicago PDML exhibit at Dank Haus Gallery."
















PDML exhibit er ei utstilling av en del av bidragene til et fotobokprosjekt som Pentax Mail Discuss List står bak, altså ei bok for et nettsamfunn for Pentaxianere spredd over hele verden.

Må innrømme at jeg er fryktelig stolt, siden dette er første gang et av mine bilder skal henge på en gallerivegg i det store utland :-)

Bildet er tatt under Malakoff 2009 i gata utenfor Gamlebanken. Jeg sto på en stein og lette etter alternative vinkler på motiv som så ut som det hadde potensiale, og så kom hun svinsende forbi.
Snapp, og der satt det.
Tittelen ga seg selv.

Runde at wintertime

It is kind of strange visiting the bird island Runde at wintertime. Most of the birds are gone, many of them are out at the open sea, other has gone south for the winter.It seemed that the gulls and the eagles where the only one left. The first Oyster catchers (tjeld) where ahead of us, so where the Eurasian curlew (storspove).

It gave me the similar feeling as visiting a festival city, outside festival season. Never the less, it was an interesting experience. Gave me another perspective and another photographic eye on the island.























The guy on the right is Jostein Øksne, klimbing on the slippery cliffs looking for different angle on the waves.
Øystein Torheim is behind me, as far as I recall.









In absence of birds I spent some time waiting for better light on these Harbor seals. This was the best shot. Not much really.












While waiting for light on the seals, I had this opening in the other direction.

As you can see, the light shifts a lot.
