Merry Christmas


I wish you all a Merry Christmas. I hope you had a good time together with your loved ones. As advised, we’ve come together in a very small family circle this year. It was quite, but nonetheless beautiful. This year was for all of us strange, we don’t need to mention why as everyone experienced it. But apart from that, there were a lot of unrelated new things going on in my personal life. So much that I couldn’t find the time or energy to talk about it on my blog. Some of the things have been stressful, but then … Continue reading Merry Christmas

That’s me, the reflection…


Here is a photo that I shot a couple of days before Christmas in 2015. At that time I was in Reinfeld, a small town close to L├╝beck. I was walking through the streets of this town and found a christmas tree ball on a fence post at someones front yard. I shot that photo with my 18-105mm kit lens but when I saw the picture on my computer, I noticed myself in the reflection and was unhappy about that. Three years later I like that picture. It’s funny. As someone who likes to maintain a certain degree of anonymity, … Continue reading That’s me, the reflection…

Happy Holidays!


I am not sure if I will find the time to publish new posts over the next days. I want to wish you happy holidays now in case I won’t be online over the days. Please enjoy your time with your family and with the friends, your loved ones. I drop the picture of Santa Claus in this post, I shot this photo when I visited my grandma, as I found this Christmas decoration in her kitchen near the window. Have a nice time with your loved ones. I wish you all the best! Continue reading Happy Holidays!

Mall Christmas Decoration


Here is a photo that I shot in a local mall. It was rather a random shot, but I like how the photo turned out. It’s maybe more abstract, or as said, just random. But I liked how the Christmas decoration was hanging down, and the windows in the background at the ceiling. I actually tested to focus on the lights, but then I did focus on the ceiling and liked it more. I do have a Christmas category since some time, but I never uploaded much photos to it. I can see that this category might be more filled … Continue reading Mall Christmas Decoration

Shopping Mall Christmas Decoration


I like Christmas decoration. Now with the 50mm f/1.8g lens, that is even more interesting. I can take pictures of Christmas lights with bokeh, I find that very beautiful. I assume I will do this quite often in the future until I maybe get bored with the bokeh. But for now this is really interesting as I couldn’t do this well with my other lenses. Together with my mother, I was shopping in a mall today, and there was all kind of Christmas decoration. That was a great place to play with my lens.
