Throwback Thursday: Lisbon

This time, three years ago, I was in Lisbon. Time to remember. There are still many undeveloped images on my disk. I have an enormous backlog 😦

Carnival is a huge event in our region. I guess, I mentioned this fact several times here in my blog. With a few friends, I flee these days as often as possible. Most times, we head to the warmer south.

Take care!

Monochrome Madness 4-38

 

This image is from January 2011. It’s taken on Helgoland. While you’re reading this, I’m on Helgoland again. It’s mid winter here and I’m here with a few friends. Helgoland isn’t faced with snow very often.

Once, these booths were used by fishermen during the lobster season for their seasonal workers to sleep here. Nowadays, you find a bar, an information center, shops and so on.

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at her site on Thursday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.

I’d also encourage you to participate. The conditions are  published in each of her Monochrome Madness posts.

Take care!

Throwback Thursday: blood moon


Nowadays, everything changes quickly. The whole world is on constantly change and the changing rate increasing steadily.

Most people nowadays have a mobile or a cell phone. An enormous percentage of these people us a smartphone. While some people are happy with the default wallpaper images, there are lots of people changing them either by an image downloaded from an only wallpaper service or by an image taken by their own. Me, too! And, as a photographer, I certainly use one of my own images. But, I don’t change that image often. A few weeks ago I made the first change since I got my first smartphone in 2009! That background image moved with me from smartphone to smartphone until now.

Do you use the default image, one of the spare images of your smartphone manufacturer, an image taken from an online wallpaper service or one of your own images? Would you show it to the public? Mine is here 🙂

Take care!

Monochrome Madness 4-36

Dec. 25, 2017 – Noon at Christmas Day

We have another theme for Monochrome Madness, this week. It’s “holiday”

End of December every year we have a couple of holidays during the Advent and Christmas season and finally New Year. Many shopping has to be done. So, you’re faced with over-crowded urban centers, traffic jams, full streets and parking grounds, crowded shops and malls.All the people have common goals: buying gifts for Christmas, food for the banquets or feasts, visiting the Christmas markets. Ordering the stuff online does not work any better, because the delivery services are overloaded, too. But, finally the holiday arrives and all the shops are closed. Empty streets and free parking grounds again. Silence, calmness and hold-ups. A breathing time for the shop assistants.

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at here site on Thursday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.
