A short experimental docu-voodle by moi featuring collapsed perspectives and the loss of scale captured in Oslo, Norway - 2008.08.01. View the Davids and Golliaths passing by while the 'nearby' natators and plungers unaffectedly run their own show - ccmixter's zikweb provides the whole scenery with the necessary 'pondus'.

When the sailboat goes by, after the larger liner has passed, the juxtaposition is lovely. I wonder if the passage of the larger boat re-conditions my focus, so that the sail seems a respite and a delight, behind the unaffecting floating joy of the people in center stage.

( the ship certainly is larger than the copenhagen-oslo ferry;-) yet, i moors once in a while here too.

yes, it makes the atmosphere in the middle part rather idyllic, and a relief.

thank you sam!
seen through your perspective I find the ships in copenhagen very impressive too!
