Black Diamond

OK, this will be a bit long...


ABOUT THE PHOTO: My second attempt at architecture. One old and one new part of the Danish Royal Library in Copenhagen. The building to the left is called the Black Diamond (den Sorte Diamant). Shooting this today involved several challenges, including avoiding long exposure helicopters in the sky :-) I hadn't realized what a bad day I'd chosen to go to Copenhagen. World leaders, world press, world protesters and every policeman, police car, and police helicopter in the Kingdom of Denmark had of course gathered in Copenhagen this week for the UN climate conference... :-)


ABOUT THE GEAR: This photo also involved another type of challenge - finding the right buttons on the camera :-) For those of you who care about stuff like that, you'll notice that as of today, it no longer says Nikon D60 further down on this page under "additional information"...


ABOUT PICA: And, this also means that as of today, I'll try to stop calling myself a beginner :-) And, to remind myself of this I've also (marginally) changed my username. I wanted it to be "pica" from the beginning, but it was taken, and I never liked the @ in it... So, from now on I'm "p i c a" instead :-)


And, last but not least, a huge thank you to DAF711, Mr。Y, and Stéphane Geiser for the lovely testimonials, and so sorry I hadn't noticed until now. You're so kind!
