Witches & Olives

Today, on the second day of our Ligurian vacation, we did a trip up the Argentina Valley from Arma di Taggia to Triora. We toured the medieval mountain town of Montalto Ligure and went on to Triora, another historic town in the Appenin mountains and the site of the last witch trials held in Italy, during the Renaissance. We finished the day at the coast in Taggia, where we visited the artisan Olive oil mill, where The Significant Other, since 2003, annually orders more than 50 gallons of the finest extra virgine olive oil.

Mission accomplished

1/400 sec – f/7.1 – ISO 200 – 14 mm

Mission accomplished. That is the feeling you have as parents when you have brought both your children through school. Big Boy had his graduation day yesterday. Granted, it is only one step down the road, but for The Significant Other and myself it still feels like the successful end of an era, 15 years after Big Girl started elementary school.

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….

She didn’t look up

Coffee Shop Reading | Portland | 2019

Street Photography is about capturing scenes of every day life as it happens. Like this girl reading a book while sitting in the window of a coffee shop in Portland. I liked her style and the just so slight smile on her lips. I was standing on the sidewalk directly in front of her, snapping a few initial photographs. I always want to make sure to capture at least one good shot before the scene changes. Continue reading “She didn’t look up”

Nuremberg Airport Instawalk (5555)

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)”
