Gun camera concept by Franziska Dierschke takes small, pinhole-shaped images without the aid of a viewfinder, putting less emphasis on picture quality, and more on the playful act of taking the picture.

Armed Police Stand Still   !!!!

Impending hurt

Summer 1936. Toni and Andi are passionate mountain climbers. There's one mountain in particular that fascinates them: the Eiger North Face, the most dangerous rockface in the Alps, which has yet to be scaled. Being the first means not only a longed-for boost of their social standing, but also Olympic gold. As they get ready for their climb, they meet Luise, Toni's childhood sweetheart, a journalist who has been sent to report about the conquest of the mountain with her fellow reporter Arau, a Nazi follower. While a dramatic struggle for survival unfolds on the North Face, Luise sets out to save her lover. A race against time and the forces of nature begins...

The Mem 32 years on...Happy A

 I listen, and the mountain lakes.hear snowflakes come on those winter wings
only the owls are awake to see,their radar gaze and furred ears alert. In that stillness a meaning shakes;
And I have thought (maybe alone on my bike, quaintly on a cold evening pedaling home), Think!--the splendor of our life, its current unknown as those mountains, the scene no one sees.
O citizens of our great amnesty:we might have died. We live. Marvels coast by, great veers and swoops of air so bright the lamps waver in tears,and I hear in the chain a chuckle I like to hear........... William Stafford
