Revisit your work

Up! | Nuremberg | 2019

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.

Special Christmas Market

Kuchelbauer Weihnachtsmarkt
1/5 sec | f/4 | ISO 1600 | 18 mm

It is really fun, being home all December (which hasn’t happened the past 5 years) and having time to explore the various Christmas markets of our area, enjoy time with friends and family and really get into the holiday spirit. Together with good friends, The Significant Other and myself today traveled to Abensberg (a small town about 100km south of Nuremberg) to visit a special Christmas market.

Nuremberg Subway Instawalk (2)

2,5 sec – f/22 – ISO 200 – 12mm

As promised, this is the second set of images that I took during an Instawalk through the Nuremberg subway system (read part 1 here). Thanks to Igers Nürnberg and VGN for making it possible. We were allowed to bring tripods, and did shooting in stations and out of the front window of our driverless subway while traveling between stations.

Nuremberg Subway Instawalk (1)

1/4 sec – f/7.1 – ISO 200 – 15mm

A few weeks ago I did join another Instawalk organized by the admins of the Nuremberg Instagram community. This time a group of local Instagramers with their cameras and tripods toured through the Nuremberg subway system. We were properly authorized with photo permits (thanks VGN for making it possible), because normally underground photography is strictly prohibited.

Tour of Notre Dame (3) – Walk around the Lady

Cathedral Notre Dame de Paris framed by a Rose bush

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…..

Tour of Notre Dame (2) – Up on the Tower

Views of Paris from the towers of Notre Dame de Paris

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….

Tour of Notre Dame (1) – Interior

Interior of Notre Dame de Paris

Back home from my short business trip to Chicago, in time for a long Easter weekend. Having access again to my full photo library. Still under the impression of the catastrophic fire from last Monday, I revisited the images from my two visits to Notre Dame de Paris in 2009 and 2012. And I decided to share a few of them and take you on a 3 part tour through this magnificent building, that has been so badly damaged. Today I will show you the inside the cathedral, part two will take you up one of the main towers and then I will finish up with a walk around the outside of one of the most iconic buildings of the world. My photographic Easter celebration.

Last night I have joined another Instawalk organized by the admins of the Nuremberg Instagram community @igers_nuernberg. This time, a group of 22 Instagramers toured the exhibition grounds of NürnbergMesse equipped with cameras and tripods. The group was led by two admins and two friendly staff members from the NürnbergMesse. To check out some initial impressions from the walk, continue after the jump….
