Sometimes it is important to revisit your work. This image from The Significant Other climbing up the staircase of Nuremberg’s Schauspielhaus I posted already back in early 2019. While putting together our photographic yearbook of 2019, I was looking again at this photograph I took with my iPhone, and it still is one my fav images from last January.Continue reading “Revisit your work”
Grey days? Who cares! Freezing temperatures? Comfy and warm clothes. The young have fun on the Streets of Nuremberg, and don’t mind the dull weather.Continue reading “The young have fun”
Rome Sweet Rome ! I haven’t been to this magic city in what seems like ages. Inspired by a movie that The Significant Other and I did watch last night, I decided to revisit some old photographs from our last visit back in 2013 and put the RAW files (that I always keep) through some modern day post-processing.Continue reading “Rome Sweet Rome”
The sun is missing in the Streets of Nuremberg. On days like this I’m in need of some color. So is my street photography. I’m not really looking for the classical high contrast black & white images, but shoot in color, looking for those scenes where color makes the photograph better.Continue reading “In need of some color”
The Oregonians call their rain “liquid sunshine”. And true Portlandians refuse to carry an umbrella. This is different on the Streets of Nuremberg, especially on a day like today, where it felt like breathing pure water when outside.
But the pouring rain is also an easy subject to get into small talk with a visiting tourist. Before asking if I could make their portrait. The request was of course approved with a smile. And gratefully acknowledged by the photographer with a smile. It’s easy – try it!

Have a great Wednesday!
After the two week Christmas break it was back to work today. It’s not that returning to the job that pays the bills made me cry today. But after a splendid sunny winter day yesterday, that is how the sky looked this morning. Kind of fitting, I guess. This image was the sole “visual push-up” I managed to get done today. Taken with my iPhone through the glass roof of my car. The shape and textures of the droplets just caught my eye. Every day with a photograph taken is a good day in the end.
Have a sunny Tuesday!
You should shoot all the time. Use every opportunity to press the shutter. Shoot everywhere. Even in a changing room of a department store. Look for gesture, shapes, lines, layers. Just train your eye, and snap away.
Like I did here while being shopping with The Significant Other this past weekend, using my Ricoh GR II, shooting in P-Mode.
Oh, and The Significant Other didn‘t buy the shirt 😉
Wish you a great Monday!
As I have written many times on this blog, capturing gesture is what makes a street photograph. Like the wave of this boy standing next to a Coke machine in a village in Jordan. I was photographing him out of a moving bus – hence the slightly degraded image quality, because of me shooting at an angle through the bus window.Continue reading “Capturing Gesture”
Back in November, The Significant Other and I visited Jordan. It was a great trip into a fascinating country. I already wrote about our visit to the ancient Nabatean capital Petra. Today I invite you to a tour of Kerak Castle, a stronghold from the time of the crusaders.Continue reading “Jordan explored – Kerak Castle”
