WPC: Wall 2

The red wall of a backyard casino, somewhere in a commercial area of Munich. I like the idea that they might lose the “O” as well one day. (Fujifilm X-T1, Fujinon XC50-230mmF4.5-6.7 OIS @ F6.7, 1/250 sec., ISO 800) https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/wall/ Advertisements

WPC: Shadowed 4

Really, I do not remember where this was. Absolutely no idea. That’s the negative point about film photography, it doesn’t provide EXIF-files. … Kann mich beim besten Willen nicht erinnern, wo ich diese Aufnahme gemacht habe. Absolut keine Ahnung. Das ist der Nachteil von analoger Fotografie: es gibt keine EXIF-Daten. (Konica Hexar AF, Ilford Delta 100)

Four years ago, somewhere in Italy, Pisa I think it was… or maybe Lucca? The Toscana in any case. … Aufgenommen vor vier Jahren in Italien. Ich glaube, es war Pisa… oder vielleicht Lucca? Egal, Hauptsache Toskana. (Konica Hexar AF, Ilford Delta 100)

WPC: Warmth

A late entry for this week’s photo challenge, a homeless’ home in a busy Munich traffic underpass near the main station. The place is inhabited all through the year, probably because it provides a good weather protection and some warmth caused by car exhausts. Due to extremely high costs of living, Munich is the city that carries the highest risk of impoverishment for its…

My third contribution to this week’s Photo Challenge, again with my favourite model. Actually I didn’t shoot this in spring but in late summer about three years ago. Some seconds after taking this frame I turned away for an instant to have a look at the result and suddenly heard a loud “splash!”. Now, guess what had happened… … Mein dritter Beitrag für die…

My first entry for this weeks photo challenge. Shot on the location of Zeche Zollverein (Colliery Zollverein) in my former hometown Essen, once the biggest coalmine in the world. I have spent a whole daytime there shooting recently. Without exageration I can say that it was quite a fruitful day. I will post much more of this in the future and at that opportunity…

WPC: Monument 5

You’ve got it. The Olympic Stadium once more. The last one for this week I promise. Have a closer look if you like. In this landscape of steel and plastic nature reclaimed a small spot for itself. Can you detect it? … Ihr habt’s erfasst. Das Olympiastadion mal wieder. Zum letzten Mal in dieser Woche. Versprochen. Schaut es Euch doch einmal genauer an, wenn…

My son has a strong passion for exploring dead spaces he finds everywhere. He definitely does not suffer from claustrophobia. This time it was the cavity underneath the window display in a sporting goods store. The owner of the shop must have been very glad that somebody finally collected all the dirt of an estimated 30 years there with his clothes. Fujifilm X-Pro1, Fujinon…

Vintage Beauties #2: Pontiac Catalina, 1960

This could be filed under this weeks “Weekly Photo Challenge: Treasure” as well and to be honest, I was thinking about it. Yes, I know, it’s so materialistic, but what can I do? I like big beautiful classic cars and I think they are treasures to keep. I also love the big V8 blocks and the sound they provide. And in this case I…

WPC: Selfie 3

Here is one final selfie. You can find the black and white version in the “Gear” section already. To be honest the picture is not really up to date as I am selling huge parts of my equipment (mainly the top two rows in the picture) due to a change of system. From Mamiya Universal Press to Mamiya RZ67 for those who wanna know….

Ten thousand.

Friends, followers, readers, visitors: Thank you so much for your 10,000 views! I’m really pleased to have met such great folks like you.

WPC: Selfie 2

One thing I hate about the Fuji X-Pro1 and those razorsharp Fujinon lenses is that they will reproduce every little winkle in your face when doing selfies. They will leave no doubt about you growing older day by day. At the moment I am doing a pretty unusual job. I’m sketching storyboards for educational videos. Yes, you guess it: on paper. With pencils and…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Object 4

1967 Ford Mustang Fastback. Another object of desire.

WPC: Object 3

Saw these torsoed mannequins today in the hallway of the building where I have my office. There’s a small fashion company on the same floor. I guess it’s theirs.

WPC: Object 2

Object… of desire. When I saw this most beautiful 1950s Ferrari at a gas station I just couldn’t resist takin’ a few snapshots. I was in a hurry, so no time for shooting some frames of the front. My knowledge about Ferraris is very limited, but after some searching I’d say this is a 750 Monza from 1955. Correct me if I’m wrong, Enzo-afficionados.
