We used to visit Grenoble

All of these photos, except the one with a view from the hill over a city, are taken in Grenoble. I don’t remember the name of the other city, but it’s right next to Grenoble.

We had some friends that lived in Grenoble, so we went there to visit them a couple of times, but a few days ago they moved to a country far, far, away. Hopefully we can visit them there some day!

HDR Grenoble

Just felt like playing around with this Grenoble shot – exaggerate the colors. In my opinion the result is horrible, but I know that some people like HDR and that they prefer the colors all fucked up like on some LSD trip. Personally I like it more subtle.

Grenoble, France.

If you search for Grenoble in the blog, you’ll find some more photos.

A New Career In A New Town

“A New Career in a New Town” is an instrumental piece by David Bowie for his 1977 album Low.

Richard Guest (over at The Future Is Papier Mâché) and me are having David Bowie week – which means we’re posting photos and naming them after titles from David Bowie songs. The first concert I was ever at was David Bowie’s “Sound and Vision World Tour” on Jordal Amfi, Oslo on the 22th of August 1990.

Here’s our previous entries for David Bowie week

EDIT: Another blogger also joined us, but since then his blog has been deleted, so I’ve removed the links (dead links are no fun).

Quicksand

Richard Guest (The Future Is Papier Mâché) was wondering about which musician he should choose because he wanted to name his posts/photos after songs. Someone suggested Frank Zappa, which was an excellent suggestion, because Zappa had a huge repertoire: a lot of titles to choose from and many of them are extravagant.

I suggested David Bowie so this week Mr. Guest decided to go for a David Bowie theme. I quickly decided to join him, so today I’m posting Quicksand (a song written by David Bowie in 1971 for the album Hunky Dory), while Mr. Guest posted Hello Spaceboy.

I’m torn between the light and dark
Where others see their targets
Divine symmetry
Should I kiss the viper’s fang
Or herald loud the death of Man
I’m sinking in the quicksand of my thought
And I ain’t got the power anymore

Don’t believe in yourself
Don’t deceive with belief
Knowledge comes with death’s release

I’m sinking in the quicksand of my thought
And I ain’t got the power anymore

David Bowie
