I just bought a couple of medium format TLR cameras. Yesterday I took one of them (an Ikoflex) out for a test drive as viewfinder in a through the viewfinder setup.
Turned out to my liking. And boy, have I missed the warmth of summer.
I am lucky to have lots of creative friends.
This Thursday I went to hear my good friend Martin or m4 as he’s called, play his electronic low-key, and super interesting music at Open Mic Night at Huset in Aalborg.
I’ve heard many of his tunes before but his was the first time I heard a live performance. It was awesome, and I can’t wait to hear him again at Egholm Festival.
Here’s a new track he played that night:
This friday I spent a beautiful, sunny afternoon in and around the closed down Kaas Briketfabrik, that made peat briquettes from 1926 to 1966.
The factory closed down in 1966 and has been falling apart ever since. And now it looks like your own little version of Chernobyl.
Sad really but hauntingly beautiful. Once hard work was laid here, but now everything is so very, very quiet.
Saturday I went to a concert with the danish band I got you on tape. Hadn’t really heard it before but it was a superb concert. Will definitely listen more now.
This is the story of two tractors in love.
Having spent countless years working together in the fields, they are now resting side by side.
Until rust will take them away.
(I guess his name is David. What her name is I don’t know…)
A couple of weeks ago, a buddy and went to a concert with the fantastic danish band Mikael K & Klondyke.
Their text universe (especially on the on the newest release) revolves around the place where I live. The music is so poetic and fragile.
Snapped a couple of shots.
Sometimes you get the feeling someone has been waiting.
Waiting for a long, long time.
“I was waiting for the longest time, she said. I thought you forgot.
It is hard to forget, I said, when there is such an empty space when you are gone.”
