weekly photo challenge, portrait, olympus pen e-p2, macingosh photography

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 Photo Challenge in dieser Woche, natürlich wieder mit meinem Lieblingsmodel. Eigentlich wurde das Foto nicht im Frühling, sondern im Spätsommer vor drei Jahren aufgenommen. Ich finde es allerdings trotzdem so passend, dass ich es einfach nehmen musste. Ein paar Sekunden nachdem ich das Bild aufgenommen wurde, drehte ich mich kurz weg, um die Resultate zu begutachten und wurde durch ein lautes „Platsch!“ aufgeschreckt. Jetzt dürft Ihr raten, was wohl passiert ist…

Priest in a hurry

pfarrer, odeonsplatz, feldherrnhalle, muenchen, macingosh photographie

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 the role of a priest. He had to hurry across the piazza over and over again, mostly because there were people crossing the scene which gave me enough opportunities to take some pictures. I like the graphic simplicity of the background in this one particularly.

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. Can’t wait to hold those new toys in my hands…

ferrari 750 monza, macingosh photographie, muenchen

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.

Vintage Beauties #1: Opel P4, 1935

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 even open the car for me so that I could take a picture of the tidy minimalistic dashboard. Compare that to the dozens of controls in a today’s cockpit. Driving must have been so much easier then.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Photo of the day #84

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.
