Weekly Photo Challenge: (Saturation)

I just couldn’t resist posting another blue-containers-on-a-junkyard panorama picture. I also wasn’t able to resist taking part of a weekly photo challenge. So, here we go.

panorama, los angeles, macingosh photography
This is the only photo I took in L.A. during my last stay there back in August. As far as I remember this was West Hollywood Boulevard.

We were there only for some hours. Most of the time we spent in the car cruising through the busy streets of L.A. and all the rest I hung out in front of boutiques waiting for my femme to come out again.

A short note for those of you who are waiting for the long promised San Francisco panorama shots: Work is in progress!
Until then here’s the first large format panorama shot directly out of San Francisco… Coffee Company. In Munich.
30 secs exposure time. Therefore the heavy blur.

Another analogue panoramic shot. Construction site silos in an industrial park in Garching in the north of Munich.

I was so fascinated by the clear colour scheme of blue and white which was just slightly distorted by some traces of rust.

Finally I managed to get the holiday-in-San Francisco-films to the laboratory. 27 by the number. That means 108 frames as there are 4 frames on every roll of film when using a 6×17 panorama kit. Yes, FOUR. Not really a lot compared to the masses of pictures most people shoot with their digital stuff. They’ll be finished early next week. The films, not the people.

Off for The Bay!

U-Bahn-Station, Am Harras, Muenchen, macingosh
Dear friends and readers,

today I’m heading off to San Fran and the bay area for a two week vacancy. To be exact my plane and this post are taking off in the very same minute.

If you should presume that I will carry tons of photographic gear on my shoulder when I just should relaxe and enjoy summer holiday I have to tell you you’re absolutely right. This time I even couldn’t neglect to put my “panoramic Godzilla”, the monstrous, massive FUJI GX 617 in the bag. I really hope that the hump will be worth it and there’ll be a lot of Frisco-ramas in the box at the end.

’nuff said. Have a good time everybody, enjoy summer and see you back then in a two weeks.

ruinas de la catedral de san pablo, macao, macingosh photography
The famous Ruinas (de la Catedral) de San Pablo in Macao. Probably one of the most coveted photographic scenes there.

Even though I only stayed for one day in Macao back then in 1997 I had a feeling that the general ambiance was totally different to Hong Kong. Whilst Hong Kong to me was Asian through and through I sometimes felt like being somewhere in South Europe when strolling through Macao. I wonder if it still is like that today.

Lantau Island, Hong Kong, macingosh photographie
Another one from my 1997 trip to Hong Kong and Macao. That day we paid a visit to Lantau island with its famous ancient fishing village Tai O. I remember having some kind of crab or crawfish for lunch which looked like a giant woodlouse. Very special but yet very good.

Sha Tin racecourse, Hong Kong, macingosh photographie

Oh dear, another photo of the day forfeited yesterday… I’m actually plundering my archives so here comes some really old stuff.

Today’s capture dates back to 1997 when I visited Hong Kong and Macao. Hong Kong already went back to China about half a year earlier and Macao was soon to follow.

The only camera I had with me was my big, bulky medium format dinosaur the Mamiya Universal Press and two lenses (100mm and 150mm as far as I remember). This shot above was captured at the famous Sha Tin Racecourse. Unfortunately I only had one afternoon left to go there and when I finally arrived, I had to learn that the races would happen next day. So, no horse-racing action shots for me.

More of this to follow during the next days… Hope you enjoy.
