The Lighthouse complex promises to be the most interesting example of modern architecture here in Aarhus. The project is still under heavy construction, but some of the buildings are already beginning to take shape. The Light House tower, the project’s pièce de résistance, is going to be 142 meters high, which will make it the tallest building in Denmark.

Back in February, the missus gave me a Nikon L35AF2 as a birthday present. Since then, the camera has been quietly sitting in a drawer waiting for a chance to prove its worth. This chance came a couple of days ago.
I loaded the camera with a roll of Kodak Professional CN400BW and went for a photo stroll. Surprisingly, I managed to shoot the entire roll in just an hour or so. The little shooter performed well, and I bagged a few decent shots. The photo above is one of them. In case you wonder, this is a chandelier at Aarhus main station. This, by the way, is not your run-off-the-mill light fixture: designed by famous Danish architect Poul Henningsen, it’s not only special, but expensive, too.
I went to Berlin at the end of May. Between family chores and LinuxTag, I didn’t have much time for photography, save for a quick photo walk in the neighborhood. The weather was not particularly good, and the rain cut my photographic endeavors short. But I managed to bag a handful of decent shots anyway.
