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….

Shoot one photo a day

I get it..even we as passionate photographers don’t get to go shooting everyday. The job, the family, other things to do. Grabbing the camera bag and doing some meaningful photography takes time.

But there is no reason not to do some “on the fly” photography every day. We all carry our cellphones around, and all of those have decent cameras built in. So why not use your phone to do some “visual push-ups” every day?

This photo was taken last night when The Significant Other and myself went downtown to see a play. When I saw the staircase of the Schauspielhaus in Nuremberg, I just had to take a picture. My visual push-up of the day!

Have a great Friday!

Just in case you wonder if you missed the last 5553 posts about Friday night’s Instawalk at Nuremberg’s Albrecht Dürer Airport (NUE), don’t worry, there was only episode 1 I posted yesterday. But I decided on the special numbering to celebrate 5555 followers for this blog. This morning, the “Streets of Nuremberg” passed the mark that I wouldn’t even remotely have considered reaching one day. Thanks to everyone regularly reading about my photographic musings, this is so much appreciated.

So this is the second post with some shots I took during the walk with 15 fellow Nuremberg Instagramers trough the airport’s car parks, organized by the admins  @igers_nuernberg  and properly authorized by the Airport press department. While yesterday’s post was mainly black&white photos, you find more color images after the jump…. Continue reading “Nuremberg Airport Instawalk (5555)”
