Dala Digital Lounge 2008

Elephantskin

Yesterday I competed for the first time in the competition Dala Digital Lounge (Dala Digital Salong) that is arranged by Gagnef photo club.

The jury consisted of Carl Axel Svensson, Per Mohlin, Ulf Engberg and Gert Bohlin from the photo club Aros in Västerås. I was happy when they announced that my photo was among the 80 photos out of 337 photos that would be shown in this years Dala Digital Lounge. My team Forby photo club ended up in fifth place, not bad for being my first real competition.

Inspiration day: Hidayet Tercan

galaxen_anneli_fors1.jpgHidayet Tercan held an inspiration lecture in Borlänge about not being scared and that people can create their own possibilities. She came to Sweden as a refugee and her first years she spend at a refugee camp in Rämshyttan. Hidayet grew up under hard conditions, but today she drives a successful a firm for health care with ethical values. Previously she has also worked as a business developer at Axel Johnson.
Â
Hadayet Hidayet said that her family had told her to never accept no for an answer. She thinks that nothing is impossible. People often ask her how she gets the energy to do things, but she says the truth is that she gets the energy from doing things. She does not have any education, but she has an idea about what she wants to do and throws herself into things that she wants to do and learns as she goes along.

Hadayet Tercan says in her inspiration lecture:
– I think that life is fantastic, when you can choose your own way.

The winner Barack Obama

Balloons

Congratulations President Barack Obama. The US election has come to an end. Barack Obama won and now we all hope for a better world economy and environment. We also hope that war not will be a major issue and that the poor of the US will get better conditions.Â

To Mr McCain I can only say do not fell to many tears. Instead go out and find a project that makes the world better. Look at Al Gore he almost became the president, but became successful anyhow. Al Gore got the Nobel prize and changed many peoples view of environmental issues.

Halloween Cycle Cross

Cycle CrossWhen people celebrate Halloween, some instead compete in cycle cross. The costumes are different, but might as well be just as scary. Today there was a cycle cross competition in people’s park, Borlänge. The snow sleet made for a difficult ride, it splashed on their costumes and on the public.

Yesterday there was a sound machine with ghost sounds in the middle of Borlänge. If people knew that only cross cyclists were coming to town this Halloween there would have been no reason to worry.
