Australian Adventure – I’m done!

Sunday, June 10th, 2018

These were the last images I posted in my Australian Adventure series, started long ago. They show two old classic Volkswagen in Fitzroy/Melbourne. It was our last day in Melbourne and Australia and so gives a good link to our next day flight back to Germany.

The complete series can be found here on my flickr page. The whole Australian Adventure story started in November 2015, when I headed to a three weeks trip to the South East of Western Australia, the Tasmanian Island and … finally Melbourne. There were so many wonderful impressions, that I would not hesitate to come back again … some day. It took me nearly 18 months to complete the review and postprocessing of nearly 1000 images taken mostly with the workhorse Olympus OM-D E-M1 and its wonderful lens M.Zuiko 12-40mm PRO, supplemented by my iPhone 5s. 286 images found finally their way on my flickr page, some of them in colour, some in black&white and some in both moods.

As written in the title, I’m done with the Australian Adventure and I’m already heading towards the next series – Northern Spain with the Basque Country, Cantabria, Asturias and Castile-Leon – where we travelled in spring 2016.

Homeland – Amaryllis

Sunday, February 18th, 2018

That day the weather was cold but sunny – at least  in the morning. Sun was coming in through the large windows and gave some beautiful lighting.
This Amaryllis is going on now since Christmas and it’s still not at it’s end.

As I’m currently experimenting with a Sony A7R2 and old glass, I had mounted a Contax Carl Zeiss Planar 1.4/50mm.
This lens gives some very very beautiful results. As often, I have tried a black&white version too.

I applied some presets in Nik’s Color Efex and Silver Efex applications and I’m getting more and more pleased with the results.

Enjoy 😉

Australian Adventure IV – Melbourne

Friday, January 12th, 2018

Coming to the final part of our tip to tne world’s end, we now entered Melbourne, a fascinating big city – Australia’s second largest. with nearly 10 times the size of Berlin (10000 km²:1000 km²) it hast around the same number of people living there – approx. 4.5 mio.

This city is so colourful and full of structures and forms, so that I still struggle about the type of series to show. On the one side, you can make a full b&w series with all the forms and structures and subtle tones and on the other side you can show the rich colours of that city.

Limiting oneself to one or the other would make the series more consistent – but would also not show the full picture. Driven by this, I’ll show either the one or the other or … both, as many views can be appealing in both styles.

Enjoy 😉

Blossom Impressions …

Monday, August 28th, 2017

The last days I had some fun in the garden, as lots of flowers are giving their very best to make this time an amazing colourful one. I was lucky shooting three cameras/lens combinations.

Sonnenhut / Echinacea

Echinacea / Sonnenhut, shot with Pentax LX, Pentax-A SMC 2.8/28mm, Agfa Vista 400.

Herbst-Anemone / Anemone hupehensis

Anemone hupehensis / Herbst-Anemone shot with Fuji X100s with the nice 2.0/23mm onboard Fujinon lens.

Hibiskus / Hibiscus

Hibiscus / Hibiskus shot with Olympus OM-D E-M1, Voigtländer Skoparex 2.0/40mm, Focar C.

During the last years I see, that especially the Hibiscus is one of my favourite motivs.
The full series – and a lot more images – can be found on my Flickr page.

Enjoy 😉
