Perfect Imperfection

Background Fight
Bush Fight | Etosha | 2017

As I already have written before, the master of Street Photography Henri Cartier-Bresson once stated that “sharpness is a bourgeois concept”. If you study his work (and that of other masters), he created many famous photographs that, while technically imperfect, strike the viewer with the heart and soul they carry.

When my Significant Other showed me this photo she took at a waterhole in Etosha National Park, I was immediately hooked on it. Yes, it is not pin sharp, and some critics might complain it lacks depth of field, but for me there is so much action and intensity in it that it supersedes any technical imperfection. This photo is so much Africa to me. So it deserves a prime spot on the blog. Kudos to the wife 😉

Yesterday the Streets of Nuremberg passed the mark of 3000 followers. For me it is still hard to believe how fast my little blog has grown since the first post I published just about 20 months ago to the day.

First of all I want to express my unlimited gratefulness to all of you who visit and read this blog. It is the joy of building the connections to so many great people across the globe through my blogging, the feedback I receive for writing about my passion for photography and my photographic endeavors – that is all the motivation I need to continue with the “Streets of Nuremberg”

Sure I ask myself what attracts people to this blog. Maybe it is a bit like this photo. Not technically perfect, but it carries heart and soul.

Have a great Wednesday!

    I like how my eye is drawn to the zebras as the crispest part of the shot. They seems like they deserve to be the focal point. Any yet, the lack of sharpness amongst the crowd adds to a feeling of being amongst the crowd. Your wife has a good eye 🙂 -Amy

  3. The photo is a splendid reminder of your trip. So pleased for you to receive such recognition with follower numbers. I started my blog in August 2015 so its only a few months older than yours. Here’s to us both continuing with the fun of writing our blogs and illustrating them with our photos for many years to come Marcus! Marion.
