Gammel Strand after dark

Gammel Strand after dark copenhagen

Gammel Strand (Copenhagen, Denmark)

Three years ago today I went out after dark with a photographer friend of mine and we practiced shooting some long exposures around the streets of Copenhagen. After dark in Copenhagen’s summer means midnightish (this photo was taken at 11:50 p.m.). If you go out at 10 p.m. it will likely still be light outside.

Copenhagen lake (Sortedams Sø) after dark

Three years ago today this happened.

Roskilde Festival VIP and Press area

Backstage @ Roskilde Festival (Mastodon fans)

With 130,000 people on the other side of the stages (many of whom have been camping for days), sometimes it’s nice to sneak back to the better smelling, less-crowded area reserved for those with connections. While sitting in a hammock seat I snuck this photo of these Mastodon fans before the Mastodon set.

Three years ago, I took today’s photo. I didn’t know what I was doing in terms of DSLR settings (f/2.8, 1/2000, ISO6400), but even though this could have looked far better at f/8 and ISO100, at least I know I’ve learned something in the past three years.

Mastodon (Gojira and Kvelertak) US tour begins 4/28/14

This seems like too much fun to pass up. If they were playing with two bands I hated I could probably skip this, but I really want to see Gojira, and even though I’m not familiar with Kverlertak, they can’t be bad coming from Norway, right? So next week I may be making the trek to Portland (4/29/14) to hang out with the Mastodon boys and experience their amazingness yet again.

Half Iron distance race through ARoS Museum

half Iron distance race Aarhus 2011 aros

Runners ascend the stairs of the ARoS Museum in Aarhus, Denmark

While strolling through Aarhus in early July of 2011 I found myself in the middle of a race. The runners had already swam a couple kilometers in the bay and bicycled for 90 kilometers around the hills and suburbs of Aarhus before embarking on this half marathon. At this point in the half marathon the runners ran up hundreds of stairs before running through the museum and out the other side!
