Wonder if this guy simply obliged to the forces of nature – or wether he was inspired by this little world reknowned fellow:

One of my favourite spots in Seattle are the Ballard Locks connecting the freshwater-lakes Lake Union and Lake Washington and salty Puget Sound. I can spend hours watching the locks fill up to lift the ships to another waterlevel – or let the water out to lower the ships. Close to the locks is a [...]
Another piece of wavy architecture – literally placed ON the waves, shaped in wavy patterns and created for the “masses” to enjoy the waves – the magnificent Kastrup Seawater Lido is well worth a visit when in Copenhagen. It’s very close to the Copenhagen Airpost, so the next time your plane is severely delayed you [...]
Today in the main Copenhagen-pedestrian-street “StrÃ¸get” this guy managed to play “FÃ¼r Elise”, “Memory” and several other all-time-musical favourites on glasses containing various amounts of water. (Hard to say whether those were half full or hald empty :-)
Last summer I had the privilege to houseboat-sit one of the amazing houseboats in Lake Union, Seattle.Â What an amazing life: to be alive, asleep and awake on the rolling wake of waterplanes landing and small boats cruising the subbtle waters. And as the icing on the cafe, this is what the mailboxes looked like: [...]
Salt is the tasteÂ of sweat, tears and a day at the beach. SaltÂ broughtÂ us good health, it brought us bacalao, herring preservation, yummy longlasting breads and that never-sinking feeling of flying when one is bathing in places like the Dead Sea and Central Asia’s wonderous Issyk-Kul Lake. Due to scarce sunlight, in Northern EuropeÂ saltÂ is being extracted [...]
The Great Wall of China was recently voted THE new wonder of the world. Before I visited the Great Wall the first time I thought – for some reason – that it ran through a flat grassy wave. But it turned out to be winding through beautiful mountains. The landscape and the winding changes dramatically [...]
It only takes two cups of boiling waves to make a hiker’s feast:
I went to Australia a couple of years ago – and we went to Hyden in Western Australia to see Wave Rock – and it was fantastic – even though I have never been in a hot place with so many flies :-) Waves are soft and gentle – and this wave is hard and [...]
In Danish the idea of linked trafficlights is literally translated “Green waves” <Danish: GrÃ¸n BÃ¸lge>. In my neighbourhood in downtown Copenhagen a new green wave/series of linked lights for bicycles has just been launched. Keep up the speed – and you can ride your bike through green lights only during rushhours.
Even a seemingly discreet shoe can potentially hide otherworldly beauty. Overwhelming wavesÂ beyond belief, oceanic beauty right there under one’s foot.
My mother was afraid of dark water. Throughout her life she avoided all situations – however appealing they appeared – that involved dark oceans, ponds, lakes. She knew they would make her feel nauseous. No moonlit scinny-dipping. No romantic midnight-strolls along the boardwalk. No summernight-fishing for mackerel in the Norwegian fjords. No shooting-star-watching from the [...]
The self-declared micronation SealandÂ is for sale (or rather: “available for transfer” – as countries cannot be “sold”!), so if you’ve got the funds, you can own your own haven in the waves. You will be close to European metropolitan areas, yet all by yourself in the wild and rugged sea, outside British jurisdiction. Sealand was [...]
Is this a hilly soil pile of the tropics?Â Is thisÂ theÂ belly of the beloved? Volcanic ashesÂ weave these waves of soil, carve these coloured curvy creatures onto the surface of the planet.
When I was a kid I remember the older generations asking eachother “Where were you when Kennedy was shot?” I thought it was fascinating that some incidents were of such importance that they made the world freeze for a few minutes, hours, days, months. Back then I wondered – and feared – what ‘wolrd-altering’ events [...]
