Our first visit to Spain was to Costa Blanca. (The white coast.) Denia area.
The weather was like nice cold Norwegian summer.
Temperatur beetween 9 and 15 celsius (no swimming).
I did not know what I could expect with regard to photographic opportunities, but as a devoted street-photographer I know there is allways something wating around the next corner.
Thanks to our kind hosts (sister and brother in law) we got around a lot.
Of course I pressed the button a lot, but was not sure I had pictures wortg showing.
It’s up to you to deside.
See a slide show from my Spain gallery on Smugmug here.

My picture “Sol i stol” was chosen for the exibition in Paris and appear in the catalouge.
One of my colleagues came to me and said she needed a portrait to be used in a prospect.
I told her that I had no camera about me and asked when she needed it. “Yesterday” she replied. “Don’t you have an iPad?” No, but have my phone (iPhone). Let us give it a try. The “studio” was a classroom with big windows of wich I placed her in front of. The result? See for yourself. The original snap and the portrait postprosessed in Lightroom. Result? “Approved by the customer.”

Visited Tronsmo Bookstore last thursday 2012.06.07. According to Allen Ginsberg “The best bookshop in the world”. He was so kind to let me photograph him (in another bookstore) in Oslo back in 1993 http://www.pbase.com/beyer/image/50646059 and http://www.pbase.com/beyer/image/50646877 Then I did not know who he was, but I looked him up an got curious and even mailed him the prints. After a while, in May 1996, I received a note from his assistant Peter Hale including a letter and drawing by AG . As far as I can understand, AG was one of (if not the) most influencial poet(s) in the second half of the last century. I encounter his name “everywhere”. The Norwegian poet Jan Erik Wold once said to me (in Fredrikshalds Tater in Halden) that AG was “Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson” of the US. My pictures of AG is also listed in Guide to the Photographs by and relating to Allen Gisnberg. Wish I could talk with him. He died of complications of liver cancer on April 6, 1997 age 71.

The torchlight procession in Halden 25.07.2011 followed the terror in Oslo and at Utøya Friday July 22nd 2011.
Spontaneous Torchlight processions and other spontaneous manifestations arised all over Norway.
Some impression from Halden Monday July 25th 2011.
Spent 30 minutes before milk and Grocery-Shopping on a Saturday afternoon, immediately before sunset.
The Halden River Tista is running close to the Shoppingcenters and is home of several species.
Most common is the Swans and Mallards.
The river is running right through Halden and you cannot call it a “clear mountain stream”, despite this,
I find the colurs strengthend and warmed by the low setting sun, beautiful.
Way home (male leading on)
