Busy Streets in the Evening


Here is a handheld photo I shot in the evening in Lübeck a while ago. I almost deleted the photo but I changed my mind when I converted the image to black and white. I did that because the colors were dull and the handheld shot was pretty blurry as you can see if you look at the cyclists. But that does somehow look good in black and white, because it’s like the movement of the cyclists becomes visible. I also like the lighting in black and white. You can find other photos on my blog that I shot in … Continue reading Busy Streets in the Evening

Alley


A few weeks ago I went outside to take some photos in the city during the rain. I actually wondered if the city cats would roam around during rain, that’s why I had my Tamron 70-300mm with me, which is a bad choice for street photos but a good one for cat photos. So, taking street photos was a bit difficult but at least I shot a close-up photo of a cat that day. For the street photos, I tried my best at 70mm and the image you see at the top is one of a few photos I brought … Continue reading Alley

Historic District Street


Here is another photo from Lübeck. I shot the photo in one of the streets of the historic district. That part of the city is quite old, and I think you can see this with the architecture.

Also I do wonder if a wide-angle lens would work better for this type of photography, but well, there are still other things on the wish list and I won’t add something to … Continue reading Historic District Street

Another Night Photo From My City


Here is another night photography approach, but I actually shot the photo during the dark autumn evening, not really at night. The photo was taken at the same day when I shot the other one. But this time I don’t show you the front of the historical district, but a scene that I shot directly in this district. As you can see, lot’s of brick stone buildings, and a beautiful cobblestone street, that’s really what our historical district is about, until a hipster architect is at work again to modernize an areas again. But for now, Lübeck still has some … Continue reading Another Night Photo From My City
