Here are few pictures of some Eastern European girls I met at the air show in Friedrichshafen. I know I’m fishing for cheap hits but beggars can’t be choosers…… Fuji X-Pro1 Fujinon 25mm f 1.4 Aperture & NIK I think the guy in the background really distracts from this shot….. but decide for yourselves. 😉
…… Langenargen to be exact. Fuji GA 645 PRO Fujinon 1:4 f=60mm Fuji Pro 400H Epson Perfection V500 This last one doesn’t really fit in with the others as it has an extreme light leak which I think makes it all the more interesting.
no real change here folks…… yet! (and as I will be taking next week’s entry this week don’t hold your breath, because we’ve had lots more snow!) Zenza Bronica ETRS Zenzanon f1:2.8 75mm Fuji PRO 400H Epson Perfection V500
….or at least we hope so. The sun has started to shine again this week so next week’s post should hopefully be a little less gloomy. Fuji GA 645 PRO Fujinon 1:4 f=60mm Fujichrome Provia 100f Epson Perfection V500
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 can honestly say that I know of no place on earth, where the wind blows straight through you as it does in that dirty miserable megalopolis that is Berlin in winter. I still love it though. I managed to meet-up with an old friend while he was visiting. We hadn’t seen each other since we last met while I was studying and he was serving in the same town in 1990. Time flies and neither of us have change one little […]
Well this is the final week of round two, so I’ve decided to do something a little different. Firstly I’m carrying out the threat that I made around this time last year, hence I’m appearing in my own blog. Secondly this is the first picture that hasn’t actually been taken by me. It was taken by my six-year-old daughter with the big Zenza Bronica! So the second year of blogging now comes to an end and I must say that […]
She’s aged very well, but I think the pigeons have seen to him. Taken in some hidden part of the Sanssouci Park in Potsdam with a Canon EOS 30V and my trusty Canon 24-105 f4 on Kodak TMAX 400 136.
The first shot is so secret I’m not telling you where it was taken, although many of you will easily guess….. The second shot is rather special because …. well after following Phil Kneen’s blog rather closely for sometime, I decided to branch out into medium format analogue photography myself. I am now proud owner of a Yashica MAT 124 G (used for the second picture) and a Zenza Bronica ETRS. Furthermore I actually developed and scanned the film myself, […]
It was time for the annual “Festival of Lights” in Berlin again this past week, so we decided to go and have a nosey. Unfortunately so did the other three and a half million Berliners plus about two million tourists!
Another short break on the Baltic coast. I feel as if this is one of the best shots I’ve taken in a long time, I don’t know why, it just feels right somehow. What do you think? This is actually Wustrow and not Ahrenshoop (which is just down the road) ….. sorry folks!
This somehow reminds me of a song I used to listen to when I was a kid. Mike Harding wrote “I was a penniless student wandering round Manchester, staying up all night in all-night cafes making a cup of coffee last for ever and arguing about life and politics through the night. This song is about the morning after when the sun came shouting into the city and, faintly delirious and high on the pure wonder of being alive, I […]
or even the night of the palaces. This is an annual “cultural feast” during which the Sanssouci Park opens its gates to visitors well into the night. The palaces are ablaze with light and classical music resounds from every corner, this is rounded off with a fantastic firework display at midnight. We managed to sneak on the eve of the occasion while all was quiet for a quick nosey.
I thought I might have a competition this week. I was, as always searching for a bit of inspiration for this week’s picture, when “former” friends of mine took it upon themselves to “inspire” me with their interpretation of a duet or in this case a double duet. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them profusely for their wonderful effort. Votes on a postcard to ….. etc.
I love the arty, cross-processed, analogue film type of pictures as well as the high contrasty black and whites. I don’t particularly like the HDR type of photography. However after yesterday’s colourful party at the “carnival of the cultures” in Berlin, I felt that I had to try to capture the colour and the atmosphere, and that this could only be done with a highly saturated HDR. So here’s to something just a little different! Many thanks go to the pupils […]
This is what I do for a living ….. I get to to travel to far-flung places and look at lots of different types of birds…….?! I’ll be turning 40 in the next few weeks, so I’m posting this now to avoid being called a “dirty old so and so” later! Thanks to the two lovely Czech girls for taking the time to pose at the AERO in Friedrichshafen.
We hope you have plenty of “fun, fun, fun” and not too much “and the sky is grey” We really enjoyed the evening, thanks for the company and the great pizza!
