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.

The Nuremberg Christkind

Marcus und das Nürnberger Christkind
Merry Christmas from the Streets of Nuremberg

Now I’m truly ready for Christmas. Because I met the Nuremberg Christkind. A first encounter in town this past Tuesday was just catching a glimpse of her walking by and a quickly snapped iPhone image from the distance. Today I got up close with seventeen year old Benigna Munsi, who was elected in November for her two year term as the Christ Child of Nuremberg, during the Advent season the most important representative of the city and its traditional Christkindlesmarkt.

We met while she visited the nursing home of my Mom (thanks Dad for giving me a hint about the visit), and I was blown away by her friendliness towards the elderly, putting a festive glow in the old eyes. After seeing how kindly she treated my heavily handicapped Mom, I understand why the city is raving about our new Christkind.

Special Christmas Market

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 Explored (8) – Martin Behaim

Martin Behaim Monument
1/125 sec | f/1.8 | ISO 1600 | 25mm

It’s been a while since my last episode of “Nuremberg Explored”. But when tonight The Significant Other, myself and good friends went for dinner in a restaurant at Theresienplatz in Nuremberg’s Old Town, I took some pictures of the monument of Martin Behaim, and coming home, I thought I share his story with you.

Winter is here

Tiergärtnertorplatz
5 sec | f /11 | ISO 200 | 12mm

Last week, the first snow has graced the Streets of Nuremberg , a first sign that winter is here. Not that it stayed very long, gone quickly after a rain storm – we will be back to 12 degrees celsius next week, probably able to sit at those tables again. But it helped getting into the right winter mood. Five more work days until a nice long break well into the new year.

I took the photograph of the historic Tiergärtnertorplatz (with the famous Albrecht Dürer’s House in the center) in Old Town Nuremberg with my Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the fabulous 12-100mm F/4 allround zoom. I had to use a tripod to be able to shoot at f/11 and ISO 200, resulting in a five second shutter speed. RAW conversion and post processing in Lightroom Classic.

I’ll be using this weekend for some gear cleaning and checking for new firmware for my Olympus camera bodies and lenses. Both is needed once in a while and should not be neglected.

Wish you a great Saturday!

Marcus

Season of Lights

When Friday night the wheels of my KLM flight from Manchester via Amsterdam back to Nuremberg kissed the asphalt of the runway of my hometown’s airport, another crazy work week came to an end. And, fingers crossed, this should have been the last air travel of this year. Coincidentally, Friday night this year’s Christmas season kicked off with the grand opening of Nuremberg’s famous Christkindlesmarkt. While I arrived much too late to make it to the opening ceremony last night, this evening I grabbed my camera and the Significant Other and headed to one of the many local Christmas markets for our start into the Season of Lights.

Nuremberg’s Best Sunset

Sunset behind Nuremberg's Imperial Castle
Imperial Sunset | Nuremberg | 2019

I always wanted to capture this photograph. The best sunset my city can possibly offer. It graces the cover of a coffee table book about Nuremberg by famous local photographer Herbert Liedel, who passed away in 2015. But this image it is hard to get. To find out why continue reading…
