Fotoeins Friday: A Muslim, a Christian, and a Jew realize they don’t have to know everything

Israeli artist Eran Shakine explores the similarities and differences among three world religions Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. With “A Muslim, A Christian, and A Jew,” the title of his exhibition plays on the first line of a joke which draws on stereotypes, and with his drawings, Shakine has a Muslim, a Christian, and a Jew – outwardly indistinguishable – explore the world.

The blurb above was paraphrased from the description at the Jüdisches Museum München (Jewish Museum Munich). Shakine’s clever insightful work was on display at the museum from 21 February to 21 October 2018.

Here is a selection of Shakine’s work for this month:

•   6 December: M,C,J visiting some friends.
•   13 December: M,C,J one afternoon in the North Pacific.
•   20 December: M,C,J realize they don’t have to know everything.
•   27 December: M,C,J decide to live on critical thinking and hope.

I made the photo above on 2 June 2018 with a Fujifilm X70. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-fuz.

AlpspiX viewing platform, Alpspitze, Garmisch-Classic, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, Bayern, Germany, fotoeins.com

Fotoeins Friday: AlpspiX above, Loisach below (Bayern 100)

After the Alpspitzbahn gondola ride up top, there’s a curious X-shaped viewing platform that appears to hover over the rock face. Those who don’t like heights should be warned: you can see through the metal lattice of the viewing platform and down down down to the rocks below. But the view is in fact pretty good: visitor above is pointing northwest to the Loisach river valley with Grainau, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and Wank at lower-left, centre-right, and upper-right, respectively.

November 2018 is the 100th anniversary for the declaration of Bavaria as “free state” (Freistaat). I made the picture above on 8 March 2017 with the Canon 6D, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/640-sec, f/16, ISO1000, and 24mm focal length.

My Munich: Memorials to the 1972 Olympics Massacre

Above/featured: Munich’s Olympic Park: Olympic Tower and the tent roof structure.

In my hockey-mad nation of birth, September 1972 is defined by the epic hockey Summit Series between Canada and the Soviet Union; the games and individual stories are stuff of legends. But high on my mind since childhood have been the tragic events that same month in Munich: the worst terrorist act in modern Olympics history.

The 20th Summer Olympics were under way in Munich, Germany, and “The Carefree Games” as they were called were the first summer games held in Germany since Berlin in 1936. Both Munich and Germany wanted to show a different peaceful and prosperous side to the world with the generation born after the Second World War.

However, the 1972 Games will also carry the stain of the “Munich Massacre” on 5-6 September. By crisis’ end, the 17 dead included eleven members of the Israeli Olympic team, one German police officer, and five Palestinian kidnappers. Many questions remained about pre-Game preparations and warnings about a possible attack, security measures, crisis management, and the failed attempt to liberate the hostages. Complete details of events remain murky even after 40 years. The disaster would damage the reputations of city, state, and country as well as international relations for years to come.
