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„WPC: Spring 3“ weiterlesen

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 in„Priest in a hurry“ weiterlesen
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.

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.
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.
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„WPC: Object 2“ weiterlesen
Abandonned trolley in an underground carpark in the Olympic Village, Munich.
Inside Munich’s main station.
Two old and bleached advertising panels promoting Bavarian milk. Captured on a Bavarian farm near the border to Austria.
Captured during a wedding in 2012.
Let’s take a break from San Francisco. Saw this upright old lady standing alone and had to take a line of frames. Seeing a vintage vehicle always makes me wonder when exactly cars ceased being beautiful. Must have been somewhen in the late seventies I guess. The owner was a very friendly guy who would„Vintage Beauties #1: Opel P4, 1935“ weiterlesen
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.
Spent a weekend on a farm in East-Bavaria, pretty close to the Austrian border and saw this…
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)
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)
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)
@ Hofgarten, Munich. (Fuji G617, Ilford Delta 100)
I’m a little bit obsessed about the architecture of the O2-Tower here. This one was shot handheld using a radical perspective. (FUJI G617, ILFORD Delta 100)
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)
Missed out yesterday’s photo of the day. Too busy. Therefore you’ll get this panorama of a container on a junkyard at the outskirts of Munich. (Fuji GX617 w/ f6.7 / 180mm, Fujifilm Velvia 100)
Another detail from Marienplatz tubestation. I adore the truly 1970s colour combination of dark-green and orange.
I absolutely love Marienplatz subway station.
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„Photo of the day #108“ weiterlesen

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„Photo of the day #87“ weiterlesen
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)
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.
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„Photo of the day #84“ weiterlesen
Missed to post photo of the day on last friday due to some heavy fuss. So, here it comes today.
A Central Station detail.
High rise extract.
