….or gotcha. I’m sure you’ve noticed by now that I don’t really like to post pictures of my family on t’internet. But I thought I’d make an exception here. Canon 5D Lensbaby Composer Pro with Edge 80 Aperture and NIK
I had the pleasure of accompanying my son and his team to their first major football (that’s soccer for all of you across the pond) tournament this last weekend. We travelled across Germany to a place called Ibbenbüren where this annual event takes place. As you can see most mothers stayed at home! Fujifilm X 100 Aperture and NIK
Took a stroll with the “Big Man” on the hunt for photo opportunities. Me with my Bronica and him with his Canon EOS 1000fn which we got from a flea market for just a few Euros. I spent a while at the beginning of the year thinking of a new subject for another 53 weeks of blogging and came to the conclusion that I was perhaps better off leaving it open to give me a little more freedom. Well to […]
I thought I’d continue the Soviet theme for another week. This is more or less all that remains of the former Red Army base, which after being cleared of all munitions is now a public park.
This blog writing thing seems to be contagious. Last year the whole family took great pleasure in finding obscure benches (or banks) and this years subject is proving to be a similar challenge. So this week’s entry is dedicated to the “big man” for his excellent suggestion. Happy Easter!
Some of you might have guessed that the project has not died, moreover everybody is entitled to a bit of a holiday sometime. After driving back through Germany and the Netherlands this was the view that greeted us on the Stena ferry taking us home. There will be more to come over the next few days to catch up. f/16 1/60 ISO 400 @17mm

I think you may have to get used to a number of these banks being within the boundaries of the city of Potsdam, as well as being taken at the last possible moment during the week. The more observant of you will have noticed that this was taken on a Sunday, hence it was taken on the first day of the new week. This is correct, unless you live in Germany, where the first day of the week is a […]

“It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter, because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary.” – David Bailey – In “Face,” (London), Dec 1984. It is with this in mind that we set off on our 53 week photographic journey. There are few things more ordinary than a bank, so in […]
