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”

Classical threesome and half a foursome

The entrance of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek (Bavarian State Library) on Ludwigstrasse, Munich. The statues are representing Homer and Thukydides. There are two other statues showing Aristoteles and Hippokrates on the left and on the right of the entrance. Fujifilm X-Pro 1, Fujinon XC 50-230mm @ 50mm, F5.6, 1/125 sec., ISO 1600

Priest in a hurry

Recently I had a little time-out and used it to stroll through the streets of downtown Munich when I saw this priest rushing from left to right and back again over the Odeonsplatz. I wondered what he was doing until I saw the film team in a distance. Actually the guy was an actor inContinue reading “Priest in a hurry”

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”

The blue jacket

Shot on the Odeonsplatz, Munich on a rainy day last January. I am still pretty much impressed about the colours and the sharpness the X-Pro1 delivers. The picture is unedited (except watermarking). Fujifilm X-Pro1, Fujinon XF 35mm F1.4 R @ F2.8, 1/60 sec., ISO 800.

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 750Continue reading “WPC: Object 2”

Fotografie-Blog-Bühne

Dear international followers and visitors, I’m very sorry but this post is in German language. It has to be, because that’s the guideline to participate at this blog-presentation here. Hope you don’t mind and have a nice weekend everybody… . . . So jetzt geht’s aber weiter in meiner Muttersprache. Ist ja auch viel einfacherContinue reading “Fotografie-Blog-Bühne”

Photo of the day #121

Yes, I did another extreme low angle shooting on a high rise business building. But this time it wasn’t the beloved O2-Tower. Actually, this is just one of the digital test shots. The real thing was done with my analog panoramic camera.

Photo of the day #118

The midsection of the Bayerische Staatskanzlei (office of the Bavarian prime minister) at the Hofgarten, Munich. The epigraph at the front means “They will revive”. (Fuji G617, Ilford Delta 100)

Photo of the day #117

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. (FUJI G617, Fujifilm Velvia 100)

Photo of the day #116

If you ever wondered what my favourite colour might be, here’s the answer. Containers on a junkyard in Garching near Munich. (Fuji G617, Fujifilm Velvia 100)

Photo of the day #113

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. (FUJI G617, FUJIFILM Velvia 100)

Photo of the day #108

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’llContinue reading “Photo of the day #108”

Photo of the day #87

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 AsianContinue reading “Photo of the day #87”

Photo of the day #86

Industrial climbers fixing some illuminated decoration at a high rise building in Hong Kong’s central business district. (Mamiya Universal Press w/ f2.8/100 mm and 6×7 G-Type back, Ilford FP4)

Photo of the day #85

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.

Photo of the day #84

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 cameraContinue reading “Photo of the day #84”

Photo of the day #81

The Jexhof, a traditional Bavarian farm in the surroundings of Munich. Now a folksy museum showing peasant life around 1900.
