Thanks +Flickr :-)

A shoal of Red Piranhas from a little set of photos I took back in 2013 shortly after the opening of the new Danish National Aquarium, +Den Blå Planet. However I haven't posted them on Flickr before this weekend.

Virtual Reality?...

Due to construction of a new metro line, Kongens Nytorv (King's New Square) in #Copenhagen has been one big construction site hidden behind closed fence since (approx?) 2010. But now an artist has decided to decorate the fence with a reminder to how the city square used to look - with a little twist...

The new station - and metro circleline - is expected to be ready in 2019.

Kwamie Liv - Follow You...

It's #musicmonday , right? I haven't posted musical updates for a long while, but this track from Danish/Zambian Kwamie Liv in coorperation with producer Baby Duka, really caught my ears. Yes, I'm slow, the track is half a year old, and you might have heard it long time ago?... But it's new to me! :-) Her music is dangerouly close to R&B, but sounds really cool (I don't like R&B). The "Lost In The Girl" EP featuring this track is really REALLY great :-) ...

Birdhouse skaters...

Team Birdhouse skaters on European Vacation 2015 Tour visited Fælledparken Skatepark a week ago. If you are into this skater-world, names like Tony Hawk, Kevin Staab, Nicky Guerrero and Lizzie Armanto might ring a bell? I'm not though. I just wouldn't miss the change to play with some #actionphotography... :-)

#musicmonday goes black...

There's nothing as good as challenging your usual comfort zone. Usually categorized as "black metal", Myrkur is definitely outside my normal preferences of musical genres. But the solo-project of Danish girl Amalie Bruun still got the honor of being the final show on my Roskilde Festival plan this year, and the approx. 10 people live-crew (including 5 chorus girls) ended up being the very surprising climax of my festival too.

When listening to #Myrkur studio-recordings, I still think the occasional "primal screams" sounds a bit weird, but on stage Saturday night on +Roskilde Festival's Pavilion stage it made absolutely sense and was very natural, beautiful and emotional. But don't worry if screaming scares you. On this track and video the screaming is only visual. "Onde Børn" (Evil children) is a single from her forthcoming debut-album "M" to be released in August (+RelapseRecords), but she also released a fine EP last year simply named "Myrkur".

Maybe the video to this track is a bit cliche? Well, I just mean it looks like I imagine videos in this genre typically looks. But nevermind, I'm a surprised new fan :-) ...

#musicmonday ...

It was back in 2012 I first noticed Empress of (https://plus.google.com/+StigNygaard/posts/jbUKD9W631h). Ever since I have been looking forward to a debut album from the now 23 years old Brooklyn based Lorely Rodriguez. Didn't expect to wait this long, but finally a self-produced and written album is now promised for later this summer, and Water Water is the first taste of what's to come...

Acrophobia...

Peru 2011. A look down to Machu Picchu in the middle of the photo and Urubamba River to the right. I was trying to climb Cerro Machu Picchu next to the famous Inca ruins, but my fear of heights stopped me getting past this plateau. I don't know how close to the top I was, but to continue I would have had to take the steps seen left behind the girl. Urghhh, too scary for me. Of course the girl continued. I did not make any impression on her...

Bonus-info: Machu Picchu is located 2,430 metres above sea level, but are far from highest remains from the Incas. In fact Cusco, the old capital of the Inca Empire, is located 3400 meters above sea level. But Machu Picchu was well hidden and kept secret by the Incas. The Spanish conquistadors never found it.

Thanks +Dick Whitlock and +Morkel Erasmus. It has never been one of my photos to get most attention, but I like the "subdued" feeling in it.

Story
Tagline
Music listener, lazy hobby photographer and IT nerd
Introduction
Copenhagen/Denmark.

Music, photography, Photoshop, football (soccer), web development, Android development and the IT/Web world in general are some of my interests or hobbies. But my most dominant/visible interest on the web, is probably photography...

I like photos large - I post photos large...

Main site for storing my photos are meant to be my Flickr gallery. On Flickr I intend to upload everything I want to keep. But since I'm both perfectionist and lazy at the same time, and generally want to upload everything from a big "event" (like for example a travel) in one batch on Flickr, I'm often very slow posting stuff there. It takes time before I have found the time to select, tag and edit all the photos I want to upload and keep. As I'm writing this, I actually think I'm 4 years behind posting photos from my travels on Flickr:-/... But on Google+ I will probably focus on "previews" of stuff not posted on Flickr yet, plus some of the best of my older/other photography.

Photography is entirely a hobby for me, and if you're interested in using a photo of mine somewhere, most of my public photos are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution license. But check for license on each photo individually you might want to use (For photos on Google+, I think you need to look up the photos in my Picasa webgallery to find license information?). Also you might find the G+ photos in higher (full) resolution in my Flickr gallery - if posted yet, of course;-)

How do I use Google+ vs. Facebook vs. Flickr vs. my blog?
- Flickr is where I currently intend to store all the photos I want to keep. I also to some degree use Flickr-groups to network and discuss photo-related stuff. But for the time being Google+ is dominating the network/discussing thing...
- Google+ is my current "interest networking place". I use this as a blogging-like tool, posting my latest/best photos or posting texts and links about things I'm interested in. A lot of stuff I post on G+, I would f.ex. never post on Facebook because this would just bore my friends that doesn't share the same interests as me:-)
- Facebook I use almost solely as a place to keep in touch with friends. This is the place for "casual updates". I try to avoid being too nerdy here, and generally only connects with people I know personally (though, there's a few I've never meet in real life among my contacts;-)).
- Rockland, my weblog I use very similar to my Google+ profile. But on Rockland I post in Danish and primary targeted people in Denmark.

I'm a Dane, living in Copenhagen on Amager. Past residences includes Virum, Østerbro and Hvidovre (Rebæk Søpark Kollegiet). Working as an IT Developer in Danske Bank.

An easy URL for my Google+ profile is:

http://www.rockland.dk/+

A working RSS feed with my public Google+ postings was last time I checked:

http://gplusrss.com/rss/feed/df0b25ca98e6df021ce028ae88c07dfd5075d5d4b6f40

(Have tried several services for this, and they have all died after some time - So planning to construct my own G+ RSS feed some day)
