Weekly Photo Challenge: Temporary

Cuddly Protection

Cuddly Protection | Berlin | 2017

After a totally crazy week at work, where the job that pays the bills has pretty much sucked up all my time and energy, I’m at the doorsteps of a hopefully nice (only contents-wise, the weather forecast is gruesome) weekend in our Nation’s capital Berlin, where I will attend a workshop with Street Photography Guru Eric Kim, a gift from my family and friends on the occasion of my half century birthday I had earlier this year.

Curious about what will await me I’m posting a street photograph I took during a visit to Berlin back in May, which is my entry into this week’s Word Press’ Weekly Photo Challenge, that has the theme “temporary“.

What is more temporary than a fleeting moment of life captured in a street photo. In the end, all street images are snapshots of life as it happens in that exact instant, and that never will be repeated. And it is especially true for this photograph of a father sharing an intimate moment with his little son.

Taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the mZuiko 14-150mm F/4-5.6 travel zoom. Image specs 1/13 sec @ f/5.6, ISO 1600 and 120mm focal length. Monochrome conversion in Lightroom Classic CC.

I wish everyone a great and creative weekend!

Marcus

Spring on Nuremberg’s City Walls

Historic Nuremberg City Walls

Yes, we made it. We made it to spring. Finally. It was a gorgeous spring day in Nuremberg, temperatures finally above 20 degrees celsius, the birds are going crazy, buds are coming out everywhere, it is just beautiful! Balm for the soul, after a totally crazy work weak. These are some photos of Nuremberg’s northern historic city walls, around the Maxtor, constructed between the 11th and 13th century. Too see some more of the Imperial’s City fortifications on a splendid spring day, continue after the jump….

StoNur on the Road – Blood Mountains

Sorry for not posting the last couple of days, I still need to get used to the concept of blogging while travelling.

I’ve spend the last couple of days in the Dolomites Mountains of Northern Italy. A zone called the “Blood Mountains” after the fierce mountain warfare that took place between Austrian Imperial Troops (Kaiserjäger) and Italian mountaineers (Alpini) during World War  I between May 1915 and November 1918.
