Bergkirchener Hütte- A Hut on A Hill

6

It is more than a hut on a hill. That’s what Mister Flinky liked, too, being there. Looking at the people passing, the harvesting farmers and enjoying the quietness of that place.

Bergkirchen is a very small (and old) village on top of a small hill. That’s what give the village the name: hill (= Berg) and a church (=Kirche) that is the centre of the one-street-drive-through-village. With its position on top of the hill, Bergkirchen has been a kind of natural border between two counties: Schaumburg and Hannover, but that changed in 1976 when all counties were rearranged.

I had to drive through Bergkirchen many, many times to go to work. So I saw this beautiful view every day and my favourite tree standing in a field. But stopping is a good plan. When you see a strange Jesus- sculpture (aluminum with red spots showing the wounds) you can stop, cause next to it, there is a small hut with a kind of map in stone showing the cities you can see and a beautiful view at lake Steinhude. You see fields, tiny farms, animals,… and it is quite nice to sit there, wait for the setting sun, bring a picknick and enjoy the landscape.

That’s what Mister Flinky liked, too, being there. Looking at the people passing, the harvesting farmers and enjoying the quietness of that place.

    Self to the World: The Photography of Leanne Surfleet

    A self-portrait may take root in confidence, extreme shyness or alternate bouts of each. Leanne Surfleet goes through this kind of fluctuation when the camera is all eyes. The attraction—as far as we’re concerned—is the mix of uncertainty and a kind of quiet poise. And here and there, a flash of skin that is more a mystery than full-on revelation. Even Surfleet’s portraits of other people have the same hushed invite, as if to say questions are encouraged. There we took our cue.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Salvation Mountain

    Leonard Knight passed away last year but he left an incredible legacy, an embodiment of love, that is Salvation Mountain. From 1984, he painted and remodeled a little hill in the California desert that's colorful as a cupcake and truly meaningful. And if anything ever would have been meant to be shot with Lomo cameras, it would be this psychedelic, holy hill.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    The Go! Team in Dublin: No Flash Photography Please

    I have to admit that I’ve never liked using flash in public places. In some situations it can be distracting. Like concerts, for example. Can you imagine a live music show where people decide all of a sudden to use it at the same time?
