Red Brick

Red Brick | Bayreuth | 2016

Glow” is the theme of the WPC Weekly Photo Challenge this week. So let it glow! My title photo is from an old brewery in Bayreuth, Germany. There are not many surfaces that glow like red brick. The image was taken with my Olympus PEN-F with the mZuiko 17mm F/1.8. Image specs 1/640 sec @ f/f5,6 and ISO 200.

For a small collection of glowing street-, landscape- and travel-photos I invite you to look after the jump…. (more…)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

Mighty Guitar

Giant Guitar | Nuremberg | 2016

Scale” is the theme of the Word Press’ Weekly Photo Challenge for this week. Scale is about perspective, seemingly unusual sizing of objects in relation to other objects due to their placements relative to each other in the focal pane, or due to unusual viewpoints, for example by looking down from extreme heights or looking up at things from the ground.

This is a creative playground for us photographers with almost unlimited possibilities. To see my entries for this week’s challenge, consisting of street- and travel shots as well as a couple aerial photographs I made with my little drone in Namibia,  continue after the jump….. (more…)

Weekly Photo Challenge – Windows

I want to be real

I want to be real | Nuremberg | 2016

Another week, another photo challenge from Word Press’ “The Daily Post”. The theme this time is “Windows“. And after being late with the challenge last week, I’m early this time 😉 . I can’t really show what was in front of my window this morning, as I was sitting next to an airplane window. And when, after a seemingly endless night, I opened the blinds this morning  while we approached Amsterdam there was…..nothing. After some splendid warm and sunny late summer days in the Pacific Northwest I’m back to the European rainy autumn weather. But in a few hours I will be back home, so the weather will be not something I will overly care about the next days.

So coming back to the “Windows”-Challenge, I need to revert to some monochrome photographs from my archives. To see my variety of “windowed” shots continue after the jump…. (more…)

Creating Memories | Nuremberg | 2016

This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge from Word Press has the theme “Layered“. I submit some of my street photography images that all are “layered”, signifying they have at least two layers of action, adding interest to the photograph by creating depth. To see more examples of “layered” street photos, continue after the jump…. (more…)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Elemental

Fire Seat

Fire Seat | 2017

Elemental” is the current theme of the weekly photo challenge (WPC) from Word Press’ “The Daily Post”. So I share four long exposure photographs representing the elements “fire”, “water”, “earth” and “air”. Anyone remembering the movie “Angels & Demons” ? First comes fire, where I experimented with long exposures to create the streaks. Image was taken with the Olympus PEN-F, specs are 1,6 sec @ f/2.8 ISO 80 (which is ISO Low on the Oly) and 30mm focal length. The rest of the elements you find after the jump…. (more…)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Textures

Greenland from air 02

This week the weekly photo challenge (WPC) from Word Press’ “The Daily Post” has the theme “Textures“. Without questions there are innumerable ways to photography textures, both man made and natural. To meet the challenge I decided to post a small collection of textures from the surface of our planet that I took from airplane windows, both natural and man made. To see more continue after the jump…. (more…)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Collage

Communications

Communications | Marseille | 2016

After two more abstract challenges in the past weeks we have a more hands on theme for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge from Word Press’ “The Daily Post”: “Collage“.

When reading the motto of the challenge I immediately had these street photos in my mind, that I always wanted to post but never found a right context to do so.

Collage 03

Take a seat | Lisbon | 2014

I’m also glad I for this challenge because it provided me with an opportunity for a quick an easy post. If you’ve read my last post you know that I’m currently on a 12 Day – Round the World – business trip. The first leg took me to my usual project site in Portland, Oregon. During the flight across the Atlantic Ocean I was treated with some spectacular views on Greenland and North Canada and I was able to shoot some very nice photos, but the last two days in Rose City were really kind of crazy work wise, so I didn’t get to process my images from the flight yet.

So owing you some views of the Arctic North I leave you with this photo of a real Portland collection.  So, even if under stress, little photo opportunities are everywhere, you just need to train your eye to see them.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Delta

Taking Time

Taking Time | Schiphol | 2017

This week the weekly photo challenge (WPC) from Word Press’ “The Daily Post” has the theme “Delta“. We are called to share a photo that signifies transitions and change. As this is very close last week’s challenge “Transient” I take a slight angle on the theme.

A delta is also the difference between two locations, the difference in time and distance between two locations. Both interpretations are covered by the above Street Photo I took in Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport. The guy in the video screen of the gigantic clock working to determine the exact time by drawing a new minute hand. The plane behind the huge windows ready to cover the delta in distance and time to its overseas destination. Coincidentally, the big Airbus is from Delta Airlines. I took the photo  with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the mZuiko 40-150mm F/2.8 Pro Zoom.

Astoria-Megler-Bridge

Astoria-Megler-Bridge | Oregon | 2017 

To also cover the much more traditional interpretation of a river delta here are two photographs from the Columbia River Delta in Oregon. The image of the Astoria-Megler-Bridge spanning the mouth of the Columbia River was taken at 13sec,  f/20 and ISO 200. The photo of the ship was taken from the old docks in Astoria, image specs are  8sec f/16 and ISO 200. Both photos were taken with the Olympus PEN-F and the mZuiko 12-40mm F/2.8 Pro Zoom.
