In a rush

Life is really in overdrive these days, with the job that pays the bills clearly in the drivers seat. The little free time I have is filled with post-production work of the various photo-shooting specials I’ve squeezed in the last weeks. And I have another busy weekend ahead, before heading once more across the pond coming Monday for a short trip to Chicago. And then I’m looking forward crossing the finish line for a long (and free) Easter weekend. Until then my life will really be in a rush.

The image above was one of my favorite street shots I took during the Instawalk through the Nuremberg subway system I joined last week. I got enough material for 2-3 posts about the walk organized by the admins of the Nuremberg Instagram community.

I took the photograph with my new favorite cam/lens combo, the Olympus OM-D E-M1X and the mZuiko 12-100mm F/4 Pro Zoom. Another example of the great image stabilization of the Oly cam. I shot this handheld at .4 sec at ISO 200. And I got the intended results, capturing the motion of the walking commuter in front of the pin-sharp design wall of the Gustav-Adolf-Strasse subway station.

Have I mentioned that The Significant Other called me “crazy” for all the stuff I’m getting my hands in? Another project I’m working on is the launch of the concept for an English language independent quarterly print magazine that celebrates creativity in all its forms in the area of Nürnberg. Together with some fellow creative minds, we have entered the project as part of an activity in the context of Nuremberg’s bid to become European Cultural Capital in 2025. 95 projects have been submitted and are open for public voting. The ten projects with the most votes will receive 5000 Euro funding and will be realized. Stay tuned for a more in depth introduction and me asking you to submit your votes in favor of our project.

Wish you all a great Thursday!

  1. Sending you quiet moments of bliss. May the time fly until your much deserved chilled Easter weekend. I can only imagine how busy things have been. Hugs.

  2. Congratulations on this wonderful image, Marcus — and also on your contributing to Nuremberg’s bid to become European Cultural Capital in 2025! If your work and creativity and any indication of the Nurembergers’ talent, your city deserves the prize.

  3. I completely relate to your small amounts of free time, but it sounds like you’re making the most of it! As always, thank you for sharing 🙂

  4. Well done, Marcus. I admire your energy! Your creative reach is long. Last evening I drove over a bridge and noticed how beautiful the curved railing looked in fading light and realised your work has impacted me in such a positive way. I see things I didn’t notice before.
