Lapporten

by Robert Westerlund

<p>There are no difficult tricks involved here. I have only used a five years old picture (negative scanning) of the&nbsp; Lapporten/&#268;uonj&aacute;v&aacute;ggi mountain + a classical sami man. I have also enhanced the colours a bit.</p> <p>Lapporten, &quot;the Sami gateway&quot;, has a long time been a holy place to Sami people.</p> <p>The image of this mountain is in a way dear to me. Why? My mother received a present for me from a painter (Ture &Aring;slin, who was a friend of my parents) when I was born. This gift was a little oil painting with the motive of Lapporten. Nowadays I have this painting in my bedroom.</p>

    Photoshopcreative was better before, I think. Why this upgrade? It´s hard to get an overview of what´s going on, I regret to say :(

    Thank you Sylvia! Well, some peaks in the Alps are about twice as high (or higher) than the highest mountains in Sweden :)

    Is a beautiful and peace inspiring place: I love mountains (I was pratically born in the western Alps). 5!

    Thank you Kenneth! Persecution of ethnic groups is ugly stuff, I think. Sweden? Well, we are no better than anybody else.

    Thank you Ricky. Well, maybe it looks like greetings from Lappland, but I swear that I have not copied any nice post card. I would like to think that I am alone with this idea, which goes deeper.

    Thank you Urban! Tja, det var kanske inte så konstigt att just jag fick denna idé. Har knackat in en förklaring på engelska till bilden.
