It was the photo of the Tequila bottle, which, by the way, was mine….and I gave it away as a price for the winner…:-(…but as I’ve heard, we was really happy about it. Graphic design by SIEexpessions.
This bus, I’ve seen today in Munich, close to the residence. It remembers be to old movies of Heinz Erhardt, such as “Das kann unseren Willi doch nicht erschüttern“. Not that I like this kind of stuff, but it represents a kind of awareness of life of that time…
( more new photos also in D40OOM.eu [C] )
I just came back from a trip to Japan with a ‘Lensbaby‘s ‘Control Freak’. This is a free adjustable tilt-shift optics with exhangable lens and aperture plates. It’s by far not usable for precise work, such as architecture photography, but is allows a wide degree of freedom for artistic works. Here two examples from of Munich’s Olpymic statium. The first one is a kind of classic tilt-shift style. The second one also, but more my style…
Here a first series
This is another hint to a photoseries I have made during my ABANDONED places tour ’14: The ‘russian flame cut mill‘ I’ve found it in a city of east germany. Interestingly the FLICKR-based ‘flickriver’ showen further views if this place. As you can see there, this place is not really interesting from the documentation point of view. Anyway, I have tried to point out some perspectives interessting form me. Judge on your own, what you prefer and let me know.
In June 2014, we have visited the island of Madeira / Portugal in the middle of the atlantic ocean. This place is really unique: The little island of about 20x50km contains a bunch of interesting sights which are offering great scenes for photographers.
Let’s start with some street scenes of a small village in the mountains taken during their cherry festival. You will see, that it is not only about those fruits:
This factory we have explored on our ABANDONED places tour ’14 in the south-east of Germany. This place we have found early in the morning od DAY 6. Your can find HERE some other interesting phots of this location.
The day of our visit we’ve has excellent light. The narrow windows on the left side created amating light structures.
this one remembers me my album HORROR on Flickr. Have a look…
If you have seen the movie ‘THE TUNNEL’, you wouldn’t explore this place anymore…But even w/o it was ‘exciding’.
This big green thing and the other one in the green room, I have explored in an abandoned train depot in the east of germany. The machines are that big and heavy, I guess, that they are the only objects left in the huge facilities.
I took the photos also on the ABANDONED places tour easter ’14.
This is a photo taken in an abandoned rail depot somewhere in the east of Germany. This special room has impressed me much: the moss like a green carpet, the hughe tubes al around the room and the abandoned chair in the impressive light.
Easter ’14, sligthtly different – I’ve been traveling trough the north of Bavaria, Thuringia and Saxony searching – no easter eggs – but hidden, abandoned places. An exhausting tour full of surprises, thrill and excitement! Thanks to Y-OO-M for his hints and joining the last two days of the tour. It was a big pleasure!!
The home page on [OOM] of the tour is THIS ONE.
I have visited various places. As I don’t have another vacation of work up all the pictures at once, I will update this blog step-by-step. Here the fiest impressions:
The first place I have visited was an abandoned lime plant:
Another place during the 1st day was a rotten destillery:
I’ll post soon much more impressions of the tour – get back soon to see more!!!
Proudly announcing, that the online magazine “THE VERGE” has applied my photo “white cat” to the article “Dark Arts – Meet the architects of Tumblr’s cyberpunk renaissance“.
The photo has taken in TOKYO in the area of Shibuya. It’s processed with NIK’s SilverEffex.
