early morning at minus 8 degrees celsius

Cycling and walking allow enjoying such morning views. By coincidence, my old Canon G3 was in my bag. Not the most suitable camera for such moments, but it gives a glimps of how great the aurora looked – even in an technical-urban setting.

mevlana

Rumi is probably not known to us Westerners although we have heard about the whirling dervishes, often performed at tourist places in Turkey. Rumi was a Persian poet, Islamic jurist and theologian of the early 13th century. He paved the way for the Mevlana order in Konya which practiced the sufi dance to express the mystery part of Islam. The ceremony is referred to Sama which is broken up on four parts, each with a particular meaning. The whirling dervishes are representative of the moon and they spin on the outside of the Sheikh who is representative of the sun. An impressive experience.

Project meetings can be so boring. Things which one can find underneath the desks then refresh mind and spirit. This photo almost inspires me to try professional raw converting. Maybe next time…
