Lighthouse Travemünde


The photo above was shot before the one with the ship light trails that I uploaded yesterday. I want to store this one as well another version. The photo is taken in Germany at the Baltic Sea in Travemünde at dusk. I thought the photo is a little bit uneven, I tried to adjust it horizontally with Lightroom but no matter what I did, it always looks somewhat uneven. This either might be a visual illusion due to the uneven promenade, or that is lens bending (although I experienced that does only happen at the wide end of my lens). … Continue reading Lighthouse Travemünde

Purchased My Favorite Jeans And Shoes Again


In September 2014, I wrote about some sneakers that I purchased back then, but now they didn’t look that great anymore as I used them a lot. But these sneakers were my favorite ones and I visited the same local store to check out if they still have them, and I had look. I had to purchase them again but this time also some special cleaning spray and with inlays as I walk a lot. They are still not the best shoes for wandering, but anyway I simply like sneakers and I hope it’s better with the inlays. The shoes … Continue reading Purchased My Favorite Jeans And Shoes Again

Long Exposure: Passing Ship In Travemünde


As I mentioned in my earlier post, I was at the Travemünde Beach today and experimented a little bit with long shutter durations. The blue image in the gallery above is another photo I shot, the pink one is edited with Lightroom as I thought changing it to pink would work too. You can click on the images to enlarge them. To explain the scene, as mentioned in the title, there was a big ship passing and I captured the lights of it with the long shutter speed. The image is shot with 15 seconds shutter speed with an aperture … Continue reading Long Exposure: Passing Ship In Travemünde

My First Long Exposure Photo Outside In The Evening


My mother and her husband asked me today if I would like to accompany them when they drive to the beach in Travemünde in the evening. That was a nice idea, I planned to use my tripod and to take some evening or night photos at some point anyway, and the beach is a perfect subject. I have read a lot about long exposure, for example when I tested long exposure at home, I also learned how to set up all things manually with my D7100. That means, I know already a little bit about the theory, it was time … Continue reading My First Long Exposure Photo Outside In The Evening

Beautiful Outdoor Cat


I promised that I would start to take pictures of other cats and not only pictures of my own cat. Today I was walking outside to take some new pictures, and then a very beautiful cat crossed my path, you see the cat in the two picture gallery above. If I would know the owner and he or she would say “I don’t want this cat anymore”, I’d take this cat right away to give it a new home, and Shyna a new friend. Yes, all cats are beautiful, but each cat does also have different features that make them … Continue reading Beautiful Outdoor Cat

New Sun Lounger In The Garden


We have this new sun lounger in the garden. I like this, it’s pretty comfortable, at least if there wouldn’t be so much fire ants on the lawn. The fire ants are a little bit annoying, I had several of them on my legs and that was a little bit painful. Anyway, it’s good that we have a sun lounger now, perfect to enjoy the day.
