The Market

The Wealth of the Web Runs Deep

Isn’t it amazing when you find something cool on the web, and then find that it is only a small piece of a larger whole? This week for Social Energizer’s Saturday Morning’s Post that is exactly what I’ve found. Terje Sorgjerd has published a video called “The Aurora”. After I watched this breathtakingly beautiful video on Vimeo, I noticed that there are several others from Terje and they are just as good, if not better. I have shared them below.The Market

Since the “The Aurora” aired on Discovery Channel it has moved rapidly into all levels of social media. Over 60,000 people on Facebook shared it. Subsequently, it was viewed over 2 million times in three days across the web.

Terje Sorgjerd humbly describes himself as a landscape photographer from Norway. To believe that is like saying that Picasso was a painter. Terje is an artist at the top of his field and truly gifted. Like all truly gifted artists, he is able to make magic. He does that by not only placing himself in just the right locations, but by capturing a unique perspective and interaction.

The Aurora

Terje spent a week capturing one of the biggest aurora borealis shows in recent years.

Shot in and around Kirkenes and Pas National Park bordering Russia, at 70 degree north and 30 degrees east. Temperatures around -25 Celsius. Good fun. 1 min 55 sec short

The Market

Bangkok’s Maeklong Market has been in existence for decades. It remained relatively undisturbed until the later creation of the Maeklong Railway and, contrary to what you might see in the United States and in other parts of the world, there was no eminent domain law forcing market vendors to move.

The result? Every single day the Maeklong Railway line passes through Maeklong – 8 times a day, 7 days per week. The train literally runs directly through the middle of the market, forcing vendors to pull back their awnings and wares while shoppers find a place to step off of the track that serves as their only walkway.

The second part of the video show the Damnoen Saduak floating market, very lively and somewhat chaotic, small “khlongs” or canals are filled with flat boats piled high with fresh produce, each jockying for position and paddled by ladies ready to stop and bargain at a moment´s notice. 4min 23sec short
