Portfolio images revisited: Skating gone bad

My girlfriend and I went to Barcelona for a weekend in september 2009 to celebrate my birthday. The day this image was shot was the national day of Catalonian, so pretty much everything was closed. Most of the natives seemed to had escaped the city, leaving it to the tourists in clusters around the urban…

Red makes her move

I´m not completely shure, but when I saw these two gals fighting their way uphill in the slushy snow I really thought they were having a race. Could be wrong, but I kind of like the idea that the fun in life never really ends. Or maybe it´s the competition that never ends. Oh, by…

What to do on a saturday evening

It´s really not my bag of bananas, but still very entertaining to explore this kind of abandoned constructions. In this image my friend Jon has just finished…

Portfolio added

I figure some sort of portfolio would be nice as a complement to this flow of images, so it´s now a part of the menu. I´m not fully convinced the slide show template I´m using is the best – maybe something more like a contact sheet would be preferable. Let me know what you think!
