I don´t know if Good Friday or Christmas Day is the most "Holy" day in the year for christians. On Good Friday (Easter) when I was a boy, we often went up in the mountain for skiing, but we always stayed at home on Christmas day. Everything was closed, almost no traffic outside the windows, friends could not visit each other, and the news on the radio were short and uninteresting. We read books and cartoons (Knoll og Tott), and if we had received (as normal) a Board Game as christmas gift (i.e. Monopol), everybody in the family had to participate. I never won.
Today the TV channels are full of movies, concerts or shows and the TV-news cover death and war, catastrophes and dramas all over the world. The times they are a-changing
One of the christmas gifts I received this year was the book "The art of reading pictures"I have just opened the book, so no recommendation can be given, but I thought the members of NorskNettfoto should be aware of the book and thus get a possibility for quality improvement and maybe add some interesting aspects when making comments to each others photos.
For those who only want to look at pictures (paintings or photos) maybe the book can give new ways of interpreting my works from 2008 or some of the best from my total production
