Ghost train at Rådhuset by s1000

Comparing cameras can be hard, they all do pretty much the same, but if I was to point out one thing my Olympus EM1 does way better than anything I’ve tested before, it’s stabilization!

This was shot entirely handheld with a 1,6s exposure – might sound a bit nerdy, but in short, that’s amazingly cool 🙂 – it has no shake at all – even the sign “Rådhuset” (behind the train) stands out in crisp letters on my big screen.

Way more Stockholm and other adventures on Instagram // @s1000

The Exit by KhaledNoaman

The Madrassa of Al-Nasir Muhammad is a madrassa and mausoleum located in the Bayn al-Qasrayn region of Cairo, Egypt. It was built in the name of the Mamluk sultan Al-Nasir Muhammad ibn Qalawun, but its construction began in 1296 under the reign of Sultan Al-Adil Kitbugha, who was sultan in between Al-Nasir Muhammad’s first and seconds reigns. When Al-Nasir Muhammad returned to the throne in 1299 he oversaw its construction until its completion in 1303.[1] The Islamic historian Al-Nuwayri records that Al-Adil Kitbugha built the mausoleum along with the prayer iwan, and Al-Nasir Muhammad completed the construction of the building and added the minaret.[2] Also, the Islamic historian Al-Maqrizi reports that Al-Adil Kitbugha oversaw construction of the building up to the top of the inscription band, and Al-Nasir Muhammad carried out the rest of its construction.
