Smiley


Here is another old photo. Also shot with my Sony Xperia P back then. I think the scribbled smiley isn’t impressive but funny. But I probably liked how grungy the wall looked like. The photo however only looked great in black and white because it made the wall textures become more apparent. It actually looked a lot more grungy in black and white. Continue reading Smiley

Bridge and Rails


Just a snapshot I took near our train station. I like shapes of different bridges. Generally, the picture was a bit boring, but in black and white it really looked great. I don’t know, especially urban photos can look really grungy in black and white, especially when there are smearings on buildings or walls. I think these pictures start to shine when you convert them to black and white. But maybe it’s just my taste. I really like it that. But I do generally like black and white photography.

Below the Autobahn


The Autobahn cuts right through our city and at some points there are bridges that help pedestrians and cyclist to the other side. But in most cases it’s just an underpass and we have several of them. The photo above was shot when I got my first DSLR, and I think I was so amazed that I shot photos of all kind of things, even if it was just an underpass. That means I was probably in a very experimental mood to try out my new gear. But I noticed this picture now in my library and I think it … Continue reading Below the Autobahn

Weekly Photo Challenge: Bridge


The current WordPress Photo Challenge comes with the topic bridge. It’s funny, I really can’t tell you how much bridge photos I shot, I am not even sure why I do that, but I can tell you that I have tons of bridge photos. I don’t know, sometimes I like the textures of the cement or wood, or the graffiti work that makes materials look very urban. There must be some kind of reason why I take these photos, maybe it’s just that we have too much bridges here (laugh). Joke aside, yeah I think it’s about the structure, the … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Bridge

Abandoned Building Near Rail Station


Here is a photo that I shot near the rail station of Lübeck. The original photo bored me and I wondered what I could do to improve the photo. It turned out that a black and white effect makes the photo look interesting. I thought this looks pretty much like one of those images that are used on old hip hop record labels. I like how this turned out. Sometimes you are just a few mouse clicks away to heavily improve a boring photo. I must say, I am generally a fan of black and white photos, but I think … Continue reading Abandoned Building Near Rail Station

Snapshot: Abandoned Building In Wismar


This is a snapshot taken with the smartphone on a car trip in Wismar, a city in Eastern Germany. I like abandoned buildings, this would be a nice place to take lots of texture photos with the DSLR camera, or usual abandoned architecture photos. I like urban photography and abandoned stuff. We have some abandoned buildings in Lübeck too, I did already visit some places to take photos, I just didn’t have the time yet to choose the best urban photos, to edit them and to upload them to my blog, but I will do that as I like photos … Continue reading Snapshot: Abandoned Building In Wismar
