October 3rd is our National Holiday here in Germany. A perfect opportunity to take The Significant Other and my newly acquired (used – of course) “Nifty Fifty” for a walk into the autumnal landscape outside Nuremberg.Continue reading “Nifty Fifty”
The second episode of the little series about my experiences shooting my first wedding as designated photographer (read part 1 about taking the formal wedding portraits) is about documenting the ceremony in church.Continue reading “Off topic – Wedding Photography (2)”
Occasionally I blog about me venturing outside my usual street- and travel photography. Shooting my first wedding as designated photographer was definitely something out of my comfort zone. In a series of posts I will write about my experiences with wedding photography. This first post is about my preparations and shooting the formal wedding portraits.Continue reading “Off topic – Wedding Photography (1)”

Yesterday morning at 4am, The Significant Other, Big Boy and myself took to the roads to head down to Italy. Using only my Olympus PEN-F and the 17mm F/1.2 prime lens, I gave myself the assignment to document our 850 kilometers / 530 miles voyage.

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”
It’s Easter Sunday, and a beautiful warm and sunny day it is in Nuremberg. Family is coming and The Significant Other, enlisting my services, has the Lamb alla Pugliese in the oven. Life is good.
To cap my three part series about Notre Dame de Paris, I invite you to an Easter walk around the Old Lady, that hopefully one day will rise from the ashes and be restored to all its glory…..Continue reading “Tour of Notre Dame (3) – Walk around the Lady”
As promised, the second episode of my Tour of Notre Dame Cathedral takes you up the iconic towers on the magnificent west facade, both of which thankfully survived last week’s blaze. Take a look at one of the bells in the South Tower, see in detail what was lost in the fire and enjoy the splendid views of Paris….Continue reading “Tour of Notre Dame (2) – Up on the Tower”
