Rome Sweet Rome ! I haven’t been to this magic city in what seems like ages. Inspired by a movie that The Significant Other and I did watch last night, I decided to revisit some old photographs from our last visit back in 2013 and put the RAW files (that I always keep) through some modern day post-processing.Continue reading “Rome Sweet Rome”
The last day of 2019 is upon us, and so the last episode of my five-part series looking back at my photographic ventures during the past year. And as the “Streets of Nuremberg” are principally a street photography blog, here are my fav street images of 2019…Continue reading “My photographic journey through 2019 (5)”
Of course travel photography has played a major for me also in 2019. While the trips for the job that pays the bills have been significantly reduced from 2018, I still had the opportunity for some travels to my beloved Pacific Northwest, and I added a trip to Udaipur, India, late in the year. Private trips had The Significant Other and myself travel, among other short visits to our neighboring countries, to Estonia, Italy and Jordan. And we had our usual share of trips around Germany. So here are a few of my fav travel images from 2019….Continue reading “My photographic journey through 2019 (4)”
Nothing like a good juxtaposition to start into the weekend. Putting huge and tiny into one photograph. Giantesses and Dwarfs. Portland and its many awesome murals provide great opportunities to capture these opposites.Continue reading “Giantesses and Dwarfs”
This post falls under my category “Nuremberg Explored”, although the Ludwigskanal is a bit outside of the city, just a few kilometers from our house. After yet another warm and sunny Saturday The Significant Other and I decided for a late afternoon trip to our favorite little Beergarden (Gaststätte zum Ludwigskanal) in Schwarzenbach for some food and a sunset beer. Just in case I decided to bring a camera, so I grabbed the PEN-F with the 12mm F/2. After dinner and just before sunset, we took a small walk along the historic Ludwigskanal, a now abandoned historic canal. For a bit of history and a few more photographs continue after the jump…
The Weißgerbegasse is a scenic alley in Nurembergs historic old town north of the Pegnitz River. Since medieval times home to the profession of the tanners (hence the name, tanner or skinner =Gerber), the ensemble of 20 half timbered houses (Fachwerkhäuser) has survived the bombings of WW II, has been lovingly restored and is now part of Nuremberg’s Historic Mile (will do a separate future post about that).

One from the archives – Monument Valley. Taken during our family vacation to the South-West of the USA in 2012.
Monument Valley (Tsé Biiʼ Ndzisgaii in Navajo language, meaning valley of the rocks) on the border between Arizona and Utah is a region of the Colorado Plateau featuring clusters of vast sandstone buttes, the largest reaching 300 m above the valley floor. The whole valley is a tribal park of the great Navajo Nation.
If you like to watch Cowboy movies you have probably seen these rock formations, as Director John Ford has used the location for a number of his best-known films and thus has created in many of us the pictures that we have in from of our eyes when we think about the American West.
The picture shows the buttes “The Mittens” as well as the loop road which you can take to tour the valley from the parking of the visitor center. If you stay in the hotel “The View” this is what you see out of your rooms.
Back then we were touring with a Camper (RV) and stayed at Goulding’s Campground down in the Valley.
If you ever have the opportunity to visit this iconic location – do it. It is truly a magic place.
Have a great day
