Soup of Fog

Sry for the long lunch break - I was ill.
But I did some pics together with international friends on saturday - one of them I haven't seen since I've left the new world.
I borrowed my tripod to Johannes, so I was going freehand - the fog made it possible to shoot at 100iso (28mm f2.8) with only 1/4 shutter speed in the middle of the night - no VR. I'm quite happy with the results ;)

25 a LUNA

No photographs today (well there are some - but it's not about the photographs today...)

My little brother became 25 years today... Well I had some ideas and was able to motivate myself to doing something practical.
The little bugger is playing the Ukulele & has lots of fun doing so.
He also is a rat - according to the chinese horoscope - and he likes
the pretty much.
So well I started with that idea but had a lot of boring time, where I had to wait for the paint to dry before doing the naext layer...
I got another idea and just started fooling around, and was pretty surprised, that I had it done in time. Well see for yourself:

some progress shots:

Burning Universities...

According to the Police there were about 500 students and solidarized people demonstrating in Linz. I'm hard at guessing numbers, but normally numbers by the police are significantly lower, than those by the organizers.
Anyway, there were demonstrations in vienna (8000-20000), salzburg (400), graz, innsbruck, klagenfurt - also students in seven german cities solidarized with austrian protesters...standard,FM4
One of the main demands is, that education should be free, university education and research should be independent and not directed by industry,...
I found it interesting to hear that while there is less and less money for universities, dividends at viennas stock-market went up by 350% from 2004-2008 and investment into military went up by 35%. Werkstatt Frieden&Solidaritaet
I was heavily disappointed by the AG (= "my dad has his own company" students party) who declared themselves against these student actions - students should study and let politicians solve everything. But honestly - there wouldn't be any protests if they would do their work, instead of illegal investments and being threatened by prosecution for their crimes...
Wake up - you are a students party - not lawyers of those giddy clowns!
