Projekt 52 week 37: A walk in the night

The topic of week 37 in Sari’s photo Projekt 52:

A walk in the night

“Of course” also a photo – well, actually two – from Montreux (the one from last week about “light and shadow” was from my hotel room, by the way):

Week 37: A walk in the night

In the night, even the architectural eyesore called Eurotel Riviera in Montreux (on the right, with the glowing “HOTEL” letters) doesn’t disturb that much…

By the way, this is not the only architectural misdeed, especially in the east part there are several more that have been built since the 1960s.

FMMMD 2008 Gallery

A selection of 33 34 of my photos from the Freddie Mercury Montreux Memorial Day 2008 is now online on its gallery page – mostly daytime and sunset photos, for I didn’t want to lug my big camera during the events and concerts, and the small pocket camera can’t cope well with low-light situation…

The official site will surely display their own photos soon, too.

We all came out to Montreux…

Rock4 and Queenie
Were at the best pl—

Um, no, gotta stop here, because the school auditorium of the CESSEV was, although quite suitable for the acapella concert by Rock4, certainly not the best place around. The Ned, though, a music club in an old factory basement or something like that, wasn’t a a bad place for a Queen cover band rock concert (and even for the shorter quasi-classical before that).

(And nothing burned to the ground, hence no smoke on the water.)

Aaaalright, now that I’m back home, I can admit that I was on holiday for the past few days (don’t want to tell the dear burglars where an apartment is unguarded); at the Freddie Mercury Montreux Memorial Day in, guessed it?, Montreux. Thanks to free Internet access included in the hotel price and occasionally some time, I wasn’t completely cut off from the blogosphere, though not as active as usually.

So in the next days, there’s a little flood of photos, thematically sorted. ;) But I rather held back with photographing things, actually.1

Well, that’s it for today…

  1. Only about 1200 photos. []
