Reflexskärm

No Comments Photography

Min fotografering av en av mina bästa vänners bröllop i maj kommer allt närmare och närmare och jag börjar bli lite nervös. En sak som jag bestämt mig för att skaffa tills dess som jag inte har är en reflexskärm. Jag har velat ha en, en längre tid och nu känns som ett bra tillfälle att införskaffa en. Har blivit rekommenderad en sida som heter tvspelsweb.se som tydligen ska ha bra pris och service.

En reflexskärm är ett väldigt bra, enkelt och billigt sätt att få dina bilder se extra fina ut! I porträtt får ögonen lite extra gläns och det gör bilden mycket roligare att titta på!

Vad är en reflexskärm och varför använder man den?

Reflexskärmar kommer i olika storlekar, färger och former men de har samma uppgift – att förstärka ljuset, minska skuggor och jämna ut kontraster. Read more

ANZAC day

No Comments Göteborg, Typically Aussie

The national day of remembrance, ANZAC day, is coming up next Wednesday (April 25). The day is commemorated each year by Australia and New Zealand, originally to honour the members of the Australia/New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC), troops sent to Gallipoli (Turkey) during World War I. Nowadays though, the day has become a day for commemorating all those who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.

On ANZAC day, ceremonies are held in towns and cities across the nation to acknowledge the service of the veterans and I think the Shrine of Remembrance is the place to go to do so in Melbourne. The Shrine of Remembrance (seen in the photo above) is Victoria’s largest and most visited war memorial and it’s located near the Royal Botanic Gardens just south of the CBD.

Ode of Remembrance

The phrase above is part of British Laurence Binyon‘s poem For the Fallen, which was first published in 1914. The poem honoured the World War I British war dead of that time and the poem has, among the Commonwealth, become know as the Ode of Remembrance . The verse above is read at dawn services and other ANZAC tributes and in Australia the line Lest we forget is often added to the end of the ode, which is repeated in response by those listening.

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

ANZAC bikkies

4 Comments Göteborg

I’ve had the entire day to myself today since Simon has been in Helsingborg with the Berserkers for a pre-season footy game. Apparently he twisted his ankle pretty bad only 5 min into the game though so I think he’ll need some TLC tonight when he comes back home.

I’ve spent the day relaxing, uploading some more photos up here in the blog (go check them out), doing laundry, going into the city for some shopping and baking my first batch ever of ANZAC biscuits. Lucky I have the perfect tin to put them in thanks to Carolyn and Ken. Now I just have to pack my bag for tomorrow, I’m off to a very early start leaving for Frankfurt at 5.30am.:)
