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/

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 DeltaContinue reading “WPC: Shadowed 4”

WPC: Shadowed 3

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 cityContinue reading “WPC: Warmth”

Back for a quickie on this week’s photo challenge. Summer, sun, sea and a roofed beach chair. What more can I ask for? Captured back in summer last year at the seaside of Cuxhaven, Northern Germany. … Kurz zurück für einen schnellen Beitrag zur dieswöchigen (Kann man das so sagen?) Photo Challenge. Sommer, Sonne, SeeContinue reading “WPC: Summer Lovin’”

WPC: Spring 3

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, guessContinue reading “WPC: Spring 3”

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.Continue reading “WPC: Monument 5”

WPC: Monument 4

A detail of Munich’s Olympic Stadium for this week’s photo challenge again. I just couldn’t resist. … Und noch ein Detail des Münchner Olympiastadions für die Photo Challenge dieser Woche. Ich konnte einfach nicht widerstehen. Fujifilm X-Pro 1, Fujinon XF 35mm @ F8, 1/1.000 sec., ISO 800

WPC: Monument 3

When it comes to architecture in Munich you just can’t ignore the Olympic Stadium. Opened to the public in 1972 it’s still one of the biggest attractions and still one of my favourite locations round here. … Wenn man über Architektur in München spricht, kommt man am Olympiastadion von 1972 einfach nicht vorbei. Das StadionContinue reading “WPC: Monument 3”

WPC: Inside 2

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 estimatedContinue reading “WPC: Inside 2”

WPC: Perspective 2

This will always file amongst the Top Ten of all the pictures I did. Shot almost from the hip back in august last year with my then permanent accompanist the Fuji X100 when strolling down market street in San Francisco. What a strong tool that camera was… Fujifilm X100 @ F8, 1/125 sec., ISO 100

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 andContinue reading “Vintage Beauties #2: Pontiac Catalina, 1960”

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 UniversalContinue reading “WPC: Selfie 3”

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.Continue reading “WPC: Selfie 2”
