My photographic journey through 2019 (4)

Of course travel photography has played a major for me also in 2019. While the trips for the job that pays the bills have been significantly reduced from 2018, I still had the opportunity for some travels to my beloved Pacific Northwest, and I added a trip to Udaipur, India, late in the year. Private trips had The Significant Other and myself travel, among other short visits to our neighboring countries, to Estonia, Italy and Jordan. And we had our usual share of trips around Germany. So here are a few of my fav travel images from 2019….

2019 has been the year where I started doing commissioned photography work. That’s why part 3 of my five part series looking back at my photographic journey through 2019 features images from my first official stint as wedding photographer, my first fashion shooting plus some more people shots.

2019 is slowly but steady coming to a close, and I’m using the downtime of the holidays to go through my Lightroom catalogue from 2019 and reflect on my photographic journey through the past year. I have divided the images into 5 categories: street, travel, people & events, shots from my hometown Nuremberg and, for everything that didn’t fit into any of the above, a category called objects. And that’s the one I’m gonna start with today.

All is calm, all is bright

Boccadasse Dreams

The second day of Christmas. Downtime. All is calm, all is bright. In Pajamas all day. Watching TV documentaries. Couch sleeping (a lot). Playing with some photographs taken during the year, like this night shot from Boccadasse, Genoa. Just imagining, how the little port would look without light pollution.

I hope your are all having a fantastic Christmas as well.

Last visit to the market

Last Day at the Market

We’re almost there, Christmas is nearly upon us. Together with The Significant Other, Big Boy and Big Girl plus the grand parents I headed downtown for a last visit to the market. A quite traditional visit, as every year on the last evening before Christmas (remember, we Germans celebrate on the 24th), the wife and her trombone choir perform on the stage in front of the Church of our Lady at Nuremberg’s Christkindlesmarkt.

The Nuremberg Christkind

Merry Christmas from the Streets of Nuremberg

Now I’m truly ready for Christmas. Because I met the Nuremberg Christkind. A first encounter in town this past Tuesday was just catching a glimpse of her walking by and a quickly snapped iPhone image from the distance. Today I got up close with seventeen year old Benigna Munsi, who was elected in November for her two year term as the Christ Child of Nuremberg, during the Advent season the most important representative of the city and its traditional Christkindlesmarkt.

We met while she visited the nursing home of my Mom (thanks Dad for giving me a hint about the visit), and I was blown away by her friendliness towards the elderly, putting a festive glow in the old eyes. After seeing how kindly she treated my heavily handicapped Mom, I understand why the city is raving about our new Christkind.
