Scenes from Goteborg

[blip.tv ?posts_id=351722&dest=15981]

On a recent trip to Sweden in July, I went to Goteborg and Marstrand Island. I put together a slide show and found some great music by a duo called racingpaperplanes. As an anthropologist, I was interested in not only photographing spectacular scenes but also everyday images that were part of my trip and scenes that are familiar to people from the area. I was especially pleased to find music by a Swedish band to accompany the video. One of the band members said he recognized these scenes and asked to put this video on the band’s MySpace page. I was so excited! I find it a lot of fun to find music for a video. I think it is interesting that I sought music with Swedish roots.

Viking Dinner

[blip.tv ?posts_id=345014&dest=15981]

This is basically a slightly shorter version of my Viking Dinner footage (without the concert music). At the recent International Pragmatics Association Conference in Goteborg, Sweden, we were treated to a Viking-inspired dinner at Carlsten Fortress on Marstrand Island. The fortress, if you’re curious was built in the 17th century and the Swedish Vikings period spanned the years 750-1060 C.E. The meal was quite a treat! Apparently, meat was very popular. We had beef, lamb, and pork. Special thanks to all the organizers! It might be difficult to top this at the next conference in Melbourne!

Sunrise Over Goteborg

[blip.tv ?posts_id=317745&dest=15981]

This is part of the Lumiere videoblogging challenge. Part of the spirit of the challenge is to avoid setting up a shot or series of video images according to a pre-defined plan, and letting the world “speak to you” by capturing moments as they happen.

The rules:

  • 60 seconds max
  • Fixed camera
  • No audio
  • No zoom
  • No edit
  • No effects

For more information see: http://videoblogging.info/lumiere/ Luckily I had my tripod with me when I saw the sunrise in Sweden on July 10, 2007. Sunrise that day was at 4:27 a.m. It is a strange feeling to see the sun rise so early and set so late (after 10 p.m.)
