Dark Path


Above is a photo that I shot in the evening somewhere in a small forest area outside of L├╝beck. This time I tried a black and white effect with decreased shadows and blacks. It’s a pretty dark image and I increased the brightness for a moment but then I went back to the darker setting. I just like it that way,it looks desolate and maybe even a bit creepy. I like the dark mood of the image. It somehow reminds me of old point-and-click adventure games I played on my Amiga back then and later on PC. They often made … Continue reading Dark Path

Somewhere in Thuringia


Here is an old photo that was shot with a phone camera in Thuringia years ago. The husband of my mother has family there.

I really mean the sky became black, it was a spectacle of nature. We thought they could feel electricity, … Continue reading A Carrion Crow

Misty Path


Misty weather makes things look interesting and mysterious, I really like misty weather. We had it misty today, and that all day long. I grabbed my camera in the afternoon one hour before it gets dark, because I thought I could take some mysterious photos along one of the paths near a big pond. I shot several photos, but I really like the one you can see in this post. When my aunt saw the photo, she said “I wouldn’t have walked there in the mist, because it looks creepy”, and I laughed and replied “Well, I am glad you … Continue reading Misty Path
