Perhaps you have a new camera?

street-gliding in Cuba

An interesting image of which I can see a red vehicle although I feel it would benefit from a little more focus. It is an action shot and appears a bit blurred for me to view this very clearly. However, the choice of subject fits the brief well, the angle is good and you have captured the moment of speed, its just a little too fast. Perhaps you have a new camera? I’ve just bought one myself and I’m taking some quite similar shots so we are both still learning. A good attempt, do please keep on trying.

Borovo gostüvanje, a wedding with a pine tree, is a Carnival tradition characteristic of the region of Prekmurje in northeast Slovenia; of the Porabje in Hungary and the area extending toward northeast Hungaria; and of Austrian Burgenland and Styria. The custom was traditionally held if there had not been a single wedding in the village during fášenk time (the period between Christmas and Shrovetide). In the present time, this is no longer relevant. The tradition is recreated in order to collect funds for village matters, particularly for the local fire brigade; to keep the tradition going; and to attract tourists. Elderly villagers say that the principal objective has always been to do something for the village and its development.

Poligious Issues


Poligious Issues is een reizende internationale tentoonstelling over scheiding van kerk en staat. Een internationaal gezelschap van 50 beeldend kunstenaars hebben hun medewerking verleend aan dit kunstproject en reflecteren op het thema scheiding van kerk en staat, vanuit hun nationaliteit, hun religieuze overtuiging en hun politieke achtergrond.

Onder de titel Poligious Issues de Schiedamse kunstenaar Ron Weijers het afgelopen jaar een internationaal tentoonstellingsproject ontwikkeld met als concept het thema ‘scheiding van kerk en staat’. Poligious Issues is een kunstproject waaraan een internationaal gezelschap van meer dan 50 beeldend kunstenaars hun medewerking hebben verleend en waarvoor iedere deelnemer één kunstwerk vervaardigde, waarmee hij/zij vanuit zijn/haar nationaliteit, religieuze en politieke achtergronden reflecteert op het concept ‘scheiding van kerk en staat’.

Doelstelling van het Poligious Issues tentoonstellingsproject is het bevorderen van het denken over deze in de eenentwintigste eeuw zo brisante issues. De kunstwerken geven vanzelfsprekend veel stof tot nadenken vanuit uiteenlopende gezichtspunten en het project is in hoge mate gericht op het stimuleren van dialoog en discussie bij het bezoekende publiek omtrent het thema scheiding van kerk en staat. Mede door de multi-etnische achtergrond van de deelnemende kunstenaars, hoopt de organisatie met deze tentoonstelling tevens het interesse voor kunst en cultuur te stimuleren binnen de multi-culturele samenleving.

De officiële opening van de Poligious Issues tentoonstelling, zal op 25 Februari 2017 om 18.00 uur plaatsvinden in voormalig hotel de Kroon aan de Koemarkt 1 in Schiedam. Maarten Mens zal als gastheer optreden en Han van der Horst zal de tentoonstelling openen. Meerdere kunstenaars zijn aanwezig tijdens de opening van de tentoonstelling.

De Poligious Issues tentoonstelling is te zien in Schiedam van 25 februari t/m 2 april 2017 en gaat daarna op reis door Europa. Poligious Issues is een rondreizend tentoonstellingsproject en de tentoonstelling zal na Schiedam op de volgende locaties te zien zijn gedurende 2017:
