Trip down memory lane.

Back to the spot where my father taught me how to built a kite and where I flew my first kite ever.
Thirty-something years ago.
On the very spot.
The times when everything was good and nobody would die.
Ever.
You know what I'm talking about.

A lot has changed.
This little harbor town is going down the drain and the camping site where I spend the better years of my youth has disappeared and shovels are removing the last proof of it's ever existence.

There I was.
Standing in a freezing cold and stormy wind.
Enjoying the PFK Nighthawk doing it's thing.
Thinking about the great times we had so many years ago.

This makes me happy. :)

Home made rig with 3 servo's connected to an Arduino Nano.

The third servo, next to the pan and tilt servo, is for firing the LX3 and LX5.

The Arduino is scripted to pan 360 degrees in 8 positions.
Firing 5 pictures in every position.
And to do that again in 4 different tilt positions.
Works like a charm. :)

This was supposed to be a follow up on one of my older series but the wind was giving me a hard time.

Still some nice frames. :)

'Daniel Libeskind`s plan for the city markings of Groningen is an adventurous approach to the theme of non-existent reality. In it he subsumes the past, the present and the future of the city of Groningen. «The Books of Groningen» refer to the cultural, social, political and economic process that the city has undergone since its origins and which is continued in the lives of the inhabitants. «The Books» comprise a text, according to Libeskind "the historical text, read and written by the citizens of the once and yet-to-be City, permanently remarking the boundaries of Groningen in time and space.'

'After experimenting with several abstract studies, William Forsythe had the idea of a canal which is more then 400 metres long and contains 27 pillars.
A metal arm connected to the pillars pulls a row of trees on the bank and bends them out of shape as they grow.
Shipbuilders in Groningen used similar techniques to bend planks of wood to the right shape.
The sides of the canal are lined with an undulating wall at various heights wich is covered with vegetation.
It represents the way in wich mankind has made changes to the natural world for centuries in order to survive.'

This image was taken by a camera lifted by a kite.
