Way back in 2004 I wrote a list of 100 things I wanted to do before I moved on to the next level. At first, the progress was good, and I managed to cross quite a few things off the list. This was mainly due to my work at the time, which involved a lot of traveling and other adventurous stuff. Over the last couple of years, however, the progress has been miserable. Last Monday, I did manage to remove another item from the list, though.
#24. Participate in a demonstration.
I’ve always imagined I would participate in an anti-something demo, but instead I found myself in downtown Oslo with 150,000+ others, holding a rose, honoring the ones who died on the twenty second and those who had lost their loved ones. I didn’t take any pictures, partly because I wanted to focus on why I was there in the first place and partly because I figured people would take tons and tons of pictures anyway. Judging by the number of photos on Flickr more than enough pictures were taken that afternoon. Some stand out of the crowd, though, and here are a few by Norwegian broadcaster NRK’s Kim Erlandsen who knows all about getting the correct object in focus and adding the right after effects.
