Färdder Kärwa – a difficult term for my English speaking readers. It is the local name of the Michaeliskirchweih in Nuremberg’s neighboring city of Fürth, a city fair that annually starts on the Saturday following the name day of Archangel Michael, typically at the end of September.

My best shot from an afternoon outing on what was supposed to be the last really warm and sunny Sunday this year. I have no idea what the boy was doing half inside in the fountain, but I thought it looked hilarious.
Taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1X and the mZuiko 12-100mm F/4. Image specs 1/200 sec @ f/4 and ISO 200 and 100mm focal length.
If you still want to go out shooting today and are looking or tips and inspirations, check out my free Learning Center.
Hope you had a great Sunday as well!

A place where you sit on the warm stone steps of a two thousand years old roman amphitheater on a placid Italian summer night. Listening to the magic music of one of the world’s most popular operas. Aida under the Stars…Continue reading “Aida under the Stars”
This is how it looks when you photograph the Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta in the moment a wave washes over your camera and the lens is half submerged.Continue reading “Liquid Houses”
Beach-tennis, volleyball, frisbee – these are the normal games you see everyone playing at the waterline on a hot beach day. But there was also another hot game played to the sound of the waves….Continue reading “Hot Game”
