It was this kind of season – summarized in one image. Instead of being the usual Christmas City ablaze with lights, Nuremberg went through another subdued Holiday season. No Christmas markets, most public events canceled. Mask mandate everywhere and long lines in front of shops to get the mandatory vaccine certificate checked out.
Add the mostly gruesome weather of the last weeks into the equation, then you know why my trips onto the Streets of Nuremberg were rather limited in this kind of season. Below some random street shots that I captured during last Saturdays trip into town together with The Significant Other.
I took my Olympus OM-D E-M1X with the mZuiko 12-100 F/4 on the walk. As it was already nearing dusk, I was shooting at ISO 3200 to get sufficient shutter speeds. I don’t care about a bit of noise (equals grain) in my street shots, it adds to the atmosphere. And look at the photos of Henri Cartier-Bresson and the likes, the didn’t care about grain as well 😉
As you can see, when compared to my pre-Covid holiday season posts (links below), also this year there was really not the usual festive air on the Streets of Nuremberg.

Have a great finish to your holiday season – and stay safe!
