Photographic “Adventskalender” starts today, December 1st
December 1, 2010 § Leave a comment
In Germany we have a tradition from which I don’t know if it exists in other contries as well: there is a specific “Adventskalender“, a calendar that goes from the 1st of December until the 24th, and every day there is a gift. Most of these advent calenders are made for kids nowadays, with some chocolate or other sweets every day. But there are various forms, e.g. my mom always had a “chain” with 24 small bags, one for me and one for my brother, each signed with the number of the day and filled with nice tiny gifts. Like that, waiting for christmas eve was easier!
So as a good start into cold, pre-christmas days in December, I thought it would be nice to make a photographic advent calendar. So from now on, every day until christmas there will be a new picture from my last stay in Bolivia online. These pictures are rough scans without any postproduction, and won’t necessarily be part of my later edit. Just see them as snapshots from Bolivia, trip # 1 !
When possible, I’ll drop a line about the picture. The first “Adventskalender” photograph was taken in Potosi, Bolivia, in September 2010. It shows a soccer stadium (the Bolivians as well as their president Evo Morales are crazy about soccer!!), with a green pitch that looks fairly strange in the environment of the Bolivian Altiplano which is about 3500 meters high and extremely dry. The tower on the right houses a restaurant.

Spread the word about this photographic calendar and enjoy!
