Footbridge in Bad Oldesloe


Here is a photo I took in Bad Oldesloe. While the colors of the original looked great, I didn’t like the heavy lens flare. I went through a couple of black and white settings until I found a vintage one that did hide most of the lens flare very well. On top of that, it transformed the photo in a very positive way. The reason why I shot the photo was that I liked the arch of the bridge from my point of view. Together with the housing in the background and the stairs, it just made me want to … Continue reading Footbridge in Bad Oldesloe

Reinfeld during Winter


Here is a photo that I shot during a Winter in Reinfeld. It’s not the entire town but some houses near the Herrenteich pond, which is frozen and full of snow in the picture. I’ve taken a similar photo when the pond was not frozen but it’s not the same view. I hope you liked the winter picture. I wasn’t too happy with it at first but when I boosted the white colors and after cropping it a little bit better, I thought it looked fantastic. What do you think about the photo?

Town in Thuringia


Here is a snapshot taken while driving through Thuringia. The snapshot was taken in 2011, that was the year I started my blog as you can see in my yearly archieves. How time flies. I am already blogging 9 years on this domain, it’s crazy when I think about it. Talking about the snapshot again, it’s not the best photo but also not one I want to delete and my blog is a great place to store photos. Continue reading Town in Thuringia

Village in Thuringia


I went through the folders of point and shoot or smartphone images today and found the photo above. This was shot in a small village of Thuringia in 2011. The husband of my mother has family there. Sadly, his mother and father died a while ago, but his brother is still living there. I thought you might like the photo. I really don’t want to forget the old photos, which is why I upload older ones once in a while too, and many of them have either been shot with a smartphone or point-and-shoot camera as said.

Reinfeld and Herrenteich


I still have so many photos of the time when I’ve been in Reinfeld, that I will probably take some years until I uploaded all photos. Above you can see a photo of this place and the pond called “Herrenteich”. But the same counts for the city L├╝beck, the place where I live. I don’t think that I ever will be able to upload the whole backlog, but on the other side it’s great to have a massive library, where you can look for photos that you want to share today. It’s also great for photography breaks, because you will … Continue reading Reinfeld and Herrenteich
