Bjørn Nimand


Det har været en smuk dag i dag. Og en vemodig dag.
Vi måtte sige farvel til vores kære ven gennem 45 år.
Bjørn trådte forkert, faldt og endte brat sit liv alt for tidligt. I dag ville Bjørn have fyldt 59 år.
De musikalske brødre, venner og kolleger, samt ikke mindst familien, mødtes i kapellet og gjorde Bjørns afsked smuk og rørende.
Efterfølgende samvær i hjemmet med musik og nærvær afsluttede højtidelighederne.
Bjørn efterlader sig tre brave kvinder. Sin hustru og to store døtre.
Æret være dit minde Bjørn.

It was a beautiful day today. And a melancholy day.
We had to say goodbye to our dear friend through 45 years.
Bjørn took a wrong step and fell. Abruptly ending his life far too early. Today would have been Bjørns 59 years birthday.
His musical brothers, friends and colleagues, and especially the family, met in the chapel and made Bjørns farewell beautiful and touching.
Subsequent togetherness at his home with music and intimacy completed the ceremonies.
Bjørn is survived by his three brave women. His wife and two great daughters.
We honor your memory Bjørn.

Guldsmed | Dragonfly

Summer days brings many of these elegant flyers. Direct translation of their Danish name is: “Gold Smith”, But I like the English name so much better. Dragonfly!
If any of you happen to know its name, I’d like to know.
I found a little trick for taking photos of this insect. Put a thin stick vertically in the ground and wait. They prefer sitting on or close to the top of thin vertical branches. In this case I picked a bamboo about 3/8 inch thick 4 feet long. After less than a minute this one posed for me.
The camera was on the tripod and ready to shoot with help of the IR-remote.
