This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

Click the little icon, and it will take you to the Flickr start page. I can't believe this thing is for free. There are so many features, and it's for free? There's got to be a catch somewhere. I am sure I'll find it some day!

I have started posting some of my recent digital photos out there, and when time comes, I will make them available to family and friends and maybe also for the rest of the world to see.

I have always liked photography. I have been using regular film until last summer when I bought a digital SLR camera: a Canon Eos 300D, aka Canon Eos Rebel. I have been waiting for this little baby for years, and now I have one! I can use my old lenses from my Canon Eos 1000 (an older analogue SLR camera) with it, and any new ones I will by should fit both bodies.

About a month ago, I stumbled onto something called the Faganfinder. I had no clue what it was all about, but it seems to be some kind of search-all-the-resouces-we-have-listed-here-kind-of-tool. Try it out and see if you find it useful or not.

I personally like the URL-info tool. Enter your favourite URL, and click the different tabs and links. This will give you more information about your page than you would probably appreciate.

Dogville - must see!

It has been some time since I watched "Dogville", but I still want to comment on the movie. The film was direced by Lars von Trier, and that alone should give you a hint as to what type of movie it is.

The whole story starts off with the arrival of Grace who is on the run from a pack of gangsters. Tom, the aspiring writer with writer's block, pursuades the inhabitants of the little town of Dogville to take her in and protect her - at a price of course. As it gets more and more dangerous to have Grace living amongst themselves, the price goes up, and everyone seems to take advantage of that fact. I will not reveal the ending, but I would like to say that my suspicion was right all along.

What seemed to be strange at the beginning, was the fact that there were no houses, or at least none thta you could see. The whole set is a make believe village without walls, doors, windows and doorsteps. The bushes seem to be drawn with chalk, and even the grumpy old dog has been drawn onto the humongous blackboard that makes up the village.

Dogville is definitely a must see, even though it lasts for almost 3 hours. Get your drinks and popcorn ready, grab a quilt and snuggle up on the couch with the remote controls.

Starring in the film are Nicole Kidman, Stellan SkarsgÄrd and Lauren Bacall. Nicole Kidman has promised to do the followups, so I am really looking forward to the other two parts of the trilogy.
