Seven Seagulls - Day 34


If you go back a few days on this blog you will find another photo where the ocean waves are hitting the coast. Now only some days later the severe winter coldness we have experienced in north Europe is starting to freeze the ocean around Copenhagen.

Can you locate the 7 Seagulls ? I chose to make all edges dark to highlight the structure in the ice. The vignet is rather dominant to guide the viewer towards the Seagulls.

Right now I'm listening to the tune "Ice & Fire" with the amazing Dutch rock band Within Temptation. If you haven't heard about Within Temptation then do me a favor and locate this tune on Spotify and just listen to a fantastic melody. When the lead singer starts the chorus part (And I still wonder...) the the speakers must be a max power. Wauw.

Here is the lyrics - is is about a lost love or a lost cause - or both?

Every word you're saying is a lie
Run away my dear
But every sign will say your heart is deaf

Bury all the memories
Cover them with dirt
Where's the love we once had
Our destiny's unsure
Why can't you see what we had
Let the fire burn the ice
Where's the love we once had
Is it all a lie?

And I still wonder
Why our heaven has died
The skies are all falling
I'm breathing but why?
In silence I hold on
To you and I

Closer to insanity
Buries me alive
Where's the life we once had
It cannot be denied

Why can't you see what we had?
Let the fire burn the ice
Where's the love we once had
It is all a lie?


And I still wonder
Why our heaven has died
The skies are all falling
I'm breathing but why?
In silence I hold on
To you and I

You run away
You hide away
To the other side of the universe
Where you're safe from all that hunts you down
But the world has gone
Where you belong
And it feels to late so you're moving on
Can you find your way back home?


And I still wonder
Why our heaven has died
The skies are all falling
I'm breathing but why?
In silence I hold on
To you and I

Every word you're saying is a lie.

And when you done listening to "Fire & Ice" then listen to the next song "Iron" and feel alive......

x-teams

I've just ordered a new book from Amazon. The name "x-teams" immediately caught my eye as I read about it in the Danish business newspaper - Børsen. The reviewer assigned 5 marks out of six, so expectations are high.
X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

SnapScan 9000 - be prepared for a laugh

Can you guess who the nice young man is in the image? It is me as a high school student - important years - where my passion for photography really took off. My god - 35 years has passed since those happy years.

I have just scanned b/w negatives and color slides from these years, and it has been hilarious to see the pictures again. Since many of the images are not something to boast about, the mission was only to get the old negatives and slides converted to digital format. Since I have many pictures from my analog years this conversion process must also go quickly.

Therefore I have just tested JOBO Snapscan 9000. It took med just 5 minutes to unpack it and set up. The scanning process is extremely simple. You install an SD card in the scanner, and then feed negatives or slides into the scanner by the help of various rails and frames - one at a time. The scan process only takes 4 seconds per negative / slide. The scanner has some simple correction options such as built-in color corre…
