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!
This is my mother-in-law. Contrary to popular perceptions they’re not all battleaxes. f/4 1/4000 ISO 200 @30mm EDIT: I thought I would give you a “making of shot” of this week’s image. It’s the first time that I have actually appeared in my own blog.
After a short weekend break in the south of the country, this week’s post is centred around the river Saale. As we have now reached halfway on the photographic journey through the year 2011, this week’s entry is interactive. All those entering the poll (see below) have the chance to become the lucky winner of a once in a lifetime prize. So here goes: The first two were taken directly on the banks of the Saale River in Hirschberg (Thuringia). […]

Schleiz’s claim to fame is one of the oldest “natural” race tracks in Germany. The first ever race took place on the 10th of June 1923, with the aim being to race as far as possible and as quickly as possible on five litres of fuel. The winner of the car race was Mr. Huldreich Heußer with a total distance of 87.3 km and an average of 41.4 km/h (which quite incidentally is similar to what I get out of […]

Here’s a picture of the little people and their mother on a rather curious looking bank. It was taken during one of those now so very familiar winter walks in the south-east of the country. This is a place I will undoubtedly be visiting again this year albeit, in a somewhat tempered climate. I might even use this location as a changing of the seasons project within this project because it really is ever so pretty here. f8 1/25 ISO […]

This weeks offer is a BOGOF (not to be mixed up with BOBFOC), where you get two for the price of one, which probably applies for both actually….. I just couldn’t decide between the two. So why don’t you decide? Both photographs were taken of the same bank on the floodplains of the Wisenta River in Schleiz (Thuringia). I was hoping for a little more variety of motifs, when I set out, i.e. a balance between portrait and landscape […]

Winter once again returns. Taken on an afternoon walk to break up the all day feast which is synonymous with rural family celebrations. f10 1/1000 ISO 200
