1/80 sec | f/4 | ISO 200 | 25mm

Färdder Kärwa – a difficult term for my English speaking readers. It is the local name of the Michaeliskirchweih in Nuremberg’s neighboring city of Fürth, a city fair that annually starts on the Saturday following the name day of Archangel Michael, typically at the end of September. A great opportunity to head over to Fürth and take my 17 and 25mm F/1.2 prime lenses for a nightly spin….

Hanging in there

My best shot from an afternoon outing on what was supposed to be the last really warm and sunny Sunday this year. I have no idea what the boy was doing half inside in the fountain, but I thought it looked hilarious.

Taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1X and the mZuiko 12-100mm F/4. Image specs 1/200 sec @ f/4 and ISO 200 and 100mm focal length.

Hope you had a great Sunday as well!

Today, on the second day of our Ligurian vacation, we did a trip up the Argentina Valley from Arma di Taggia to Triora.

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.

Instant Inspiration (31) – Go for contrast

Monochrome Castle

The blazing heat continues across Germany. Photographers complain about the harsh light and mute colors, especially during the day. But as the saying goes, when life gives you lemons, grab salt and tequila. Episode 31 of my “Instant Inspirations” talks about high contrast monochrome photographs.

Heat Wave

July is upon us. Not that it makes any difference, as the scorching heat wave of the past two weeks just carries on. Which would make me rather lie down in the shade of a tree near a swimming pool, rather than in a shop window in front of the unforgiving lens of a street photographer. But the heat wave is definitely no reason to get a summer blues.
