We’ve got a lot of snow in the past days, although today the rain has washed away most of it. When it started to snow on Thursday, I decided to put camera bag and tripod in the car to head downtown for some after office shooting of the snow-covered old town. For more photographs and my weather induced challenges continue after the jump… (more…)

Happy 3rd Birthday, Streets of Nuremberg

Platz am Tiergärtnertor | Nuremberg | 2019

Platz am Tiergärtnertor | Nuremberg | 2019

This day three years ago I started the “Streets of Nuremberg”. What a journey it has been.  And what better way to celebrate the blogaversary as with two photographs of the city that gives this blog its name (also supposed to be a teaser about an upcoming post from Thursday night’s winter walk through the snow covered Old Town).

Aside from being my own creative outlet  (“phototherapy” is a great way to compensate the pressures from the job that pays the bills), the real fun part is to connect with different people from all over the planet (this blog is read in 146 countries and counting…). So to all my readers, and especially to the many ones with whom virtual and real friendships have started, a heartfelt “Thank You” for being part of my fun ride! And to many more happy years of blogging to come!

The photographs were taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 with the mZuiko 12-100mm F/4 and a tripod. A post with more images and all the photographic challenges on that icy night is coming up.

If you want to go out shooting on the weekend and are still looking for tips and inspirations around photography, check out my free Learning Center.

Wish you a great Friday!

Monday Mountains (8)

Snowcapped Pyramid

Snowcapped Pyramid | Washington | 2018

I haven’t done a “Monday Mountain” in quite a while, but I thought I show off this photograph of a rugged, snowcapped peak in the Northern Cascades. Unless previous episodes, where I wrote about particular mountains, I have no clue how this peak is called. If anyone recognizes this quite distinctive shape and has an idea, please leave the name in the comment section.

Image specs are 1/800 sec @ f/7.1 and ISO 200, focal length was 100mm (200mm focal length full frame equivalent). The photo was taken with my OM-D E-M1 and the mZuiko 12-100mm F/4 Pro Zoom a few minutes after takeoff in Seattle, on our way towards Canada, while we were still climbing to cruising altitude.

I finally got home from Portland at Saturday evening, in the middle of a little snow storm. And I made the birthday party with only one hour of delay.  Next time I set a foot into an airplane it will be for a week of vacation in NYC with the Significant Other. Less than three weeks to go. Life is not too bad 😉

Wish you all a great week!

A Winter Dream

Winter Dream

Winter Dream | Austria | 2017

We are five days into the new year and I haven’t seen as much as a ray of the sun. It’s been mostly rainy here in Nuremberg and we have been busy moving the big girl out of the house into her own apartment in downtown Nuremberg. A huge step for her as well as for us, even though we just live 10 miles (16km) apart. Have I mentioned that I’m considering turning her vacated room into a photo studio 😉 ?

Yesterday I have stumbled across a video documentary about and with famous Japanese street photographer Daido Moriyama (here the link to it on youtube). It is a priceless film with 84 minutes duration with English subtitles. I will do a separate post about it and about Daido Moriyama in the next days. But definitely worth watching on the weekend, if you have some time and are interested in the work of this iconic photographer.

The photo of the cabin in the mountains I have taken last week in Austria with my Olympus PEN-F with the 14-150mm F/4-5.6 travel zoom. Image specs are 1/250 sec @ f/9, ISO 200 and 47mm focal length.

Have a great weekend!

My Sunday Miracle

Miracle

Miracle | Moosbach | 2017

Like many places on this planet we were blessed with plenty snow this weekend. As I’m fighting a really nasty cold I didn’t use the opportunity to head into Nuremberg to photograph in the snow covered city. But Sunday late afternoon my significant other more or less kicked me out of the house for a little walk in the woods and fields behind our house. Initially I didn’t want to take a camera, but then again, which photographer leaves the house without one?  So I grabbed the PEN-F and we headed out the door.  And sure enough, in the trees just behind the house my little miracle happened.  For the story and a couple more snowy sunset photos from Frankonia continue reading after the jump…..

Let it Snow !

Let it snow

Let it Snow | Munich | 2016

I’m sitting in Texas right now on a quick business two day in-and-out trip but no real photo opportunities, not even at the airport. This one is from the archives (well not really, I took it last week in Munich), but I thought I do a quick post to welcome December, the 12th month of this blog 🙂 . And seriously, I’m ready for some real snow, although as a frequent traveller, I should rather be careful what I wish for.

The photo was taken with the Ricoh GR II at 1/60 sec F/3.2 and ISO1600 at the Promenadeplatz in Munich.  I’m finding that lately I’m drawn more to color street photos but I guess that comes with the season. And seriously, there is no sane reason to convert a blue hour photo to black & white!!

Have a great December!

Marcus
