Welcome to my photo site. It’s still under construction, so be patient. Thanks for coming by already.

Have look at my blog or browse my photos in the following categories:
Hope to see you again, soon.
These days, our local group of photo-prone friends went to the local train station and searched for new and proven shots. While many put the focus on long-term exposures, I had forgotten my tripod adaptor and thus concentrated on the little things that could be shot free-hand.
I then experimented a bit with color and b/w settings to get the most out of the shots.
Here’s what I found interesting enough to post:
What do you think?
This month’s topic for our photo community meeting was „Reflections“, suggesting to use the autumn puddles for some creative ideas.
However, this seemed too obvious and superficial in the true sense of the meaning.
So, while also doing the obvious and taking some shots of a Greek orthodox monastery in a traffic mirror at first, I also reflected about a more creative approach.
I have been fascinated by the facets of an exclusive whiskey tumbler in my possession for some time. Whenever I use it with a good single malt, I keep looking at it and have wondered for a while, if you could use it for some interesting images.
Now, these days, coincidence would have it that my wife also lit some candles on our shiny living room table and this is when I had this „Eureka“ moment.
Why not shoot a whiskey noser and its reflections on the table in front of a candle through a whiskey tumbler…?
And here’s what came out of this:
Quite intriguing, don’t you think?
Yesterday, we took the chance for a little walk in the autumn sun, enjoying the colors and little details on the side. I was even able to take a few shots while walking although my daughter pressed on telling the rest of my family why I lagged behind with statements such as „Daddy‘ keeps taking photos again. …“.
So please understand that it’s nothing too artistic this time…
I frequently benefit from my in-law’s gardening skills. Here’s her latest creation.
Slightly processed, the beauty becomes even more evident.
Mind you, these photos were taken on the fly with my cellphone.
Sometimes waiting for the presenter of a Whiskey tasting can have its benefits. At first you just see the usual grey roof.
But as it gets darker and the ugly parts of the scene dissolve into darkness you suddenly realize that you have a terrific view into the sundown. with fascinating lines and colors.
As an additional bonus, the belated Whiskey tasting then went down as smoothly as several well-aged single malts… 😉
So, as usual, happiness comes to those who wait…
…in more than just the photographic meaning.
The last couple of days offered at least some sun between the downpours… However, no wheather to take my big cam, so far. But my mobile is not too bad either, I think 🙂
The first struck me as „the wererabbit about to bite the sun“. The second one and third depict my aged dog enjoying the autumn sun warming his bones. He looked younger than ever, don’t you think? Not like 15 years old…
These days, I conducted a photoshoot together with a friend with the purpose to stage the customer service car of a local bank in our rural scenic environment for later use in a social media campaign
