The good thing about making a photo-book is that once it is there, the
work is finished. At least until the '83 days of Darkness' book was
finished I always thought it was like that.

A week after the book presentation, I went cycling through the Alps with some friends and I ran in to a subject that I wish I could have added to the book. In a small mountain cabin I found some old black and white photographs with mountain peeks of the Italian dolomites hanging on the wall. Somebody had pointed out climbing routes to the top of mountain. The routes were stripes and little dots carved out with a knife. Pointing out the places where you could take some rest or spend a night on the way to the top.

Every mountain has at least one route to the top and one can find an endless number of images on the internet with routes to climb. And when there is a route to the top there is always the possibility to find an alternative and more exciting route to the top.

In a way, this table presentation of the project was asking to add this new additional chapter to the work and I enjoyed every second of skimming the internet for images of climbing routes to the top of mountain peeks.
