Today is Ascension Day, in Germany traditionally the Fathers Day and also a national holiday. Traditionally, it is also called gentlemen’s day (Herrentag). It is a tradition for groups of males (young and old) to do a biking or hiking tour with one or more small carts pulled by manpower.Continue reading “Fathers Day”
A few weeks ago I did join another Instawalk organized by the admins of the Nuremberg Instagram community. This time a group of local Instagramers with their cameras and tripods toured through the Nuremberg subway system. We were properly authorized with photo permits (thanks VGN for making it possible), because normally underground photography is strictly prohibited.Continue reading “Nuremberg Subway Instawalk (1)”
A few weeks ago I asked you to cast your vote for “Ginger”, a creative project that is supporting Nuremberg’s application to become the European Capital of Culture in 2025. From many ideas submitted, the Open Call N2025 initiative advanced 96 projects to the stage of public voting. Also thanks to your help, “Ginger” received the fourth most votes and will be one of ten projects whose realization will be funded with 5.000 EUR.Continue reading “The start of something great”
I’m sure you know the feeling. You’re looking at one of your photographs that you actually like – but wonder if you should have taken it in a slightly different way. With different settings, different composition or in a different light.Continue reading “Learn from your images”
I know I’m neglecting my blogging, but life is kind of crazy these days. But not only my writing is affected, I also haven’t had time to go out shooting in what seems a lifetime. That said, I still try to capture at least one image a day. I even have embarked on a couple of 365 challenges but never finished one. But sometimes it just hits me, and I pull out whatever camera I have with me (and if it is my cellphone) and look for something to shoot. And if it is capturing legs in the subway. Who cares. A small visual pushup. And a satisfied feeling after. There are better days ahead!
Have a great Thursday!
My life continues to be on a fast track these days. Sometimes I feel like a subway train racing through a tunnel, occasional streaks of light, a rare stop in a station, moving again. Not unpleasant, apart from the feeling that there is not enough time for all I need and want to do (like finally posting the images from the Instawalk through the Nuremberg subway system organized by the admins of the Nuremberg Instagram community that I did join a few weeks ago).Continue reading “In the Tunnel”
When have you juggled yourself in the air lately? Isn’t this a perfect fitness program to get yourself into shape for for those upcoming beach days?
A fun part about street photography is playing with perspective. Like in this image from Chicago’s Millennium Park. Taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1X and the mZuiko 12-100 f/4. Image specs 1/200 sec @ f/4 and ISO 200, 75mm foval length.
Wish you a great start into the week!
Update: “Ginger” was voted 4th overall in the N2025 Open Call and will go into the realization stage! Thanks to all who supported with their votes!
I am involved in a creative project that is trying to support Open Call N2025, an initiative within the framework of Nuremberg’s application to become the European Capital of Culture in 2025. The realisation of the 7 projects with the most votes will be funded with 5000 EUR, plus the Jury will select another 3 projects that will be funded.Continue reading “I need your vote”
