Photo Impressions, Scenaries and Side Stages

End of Season

- Posted in Seasons by

This photo was taken in Rome, Villa Borghese gardens, end of November 2015, on a cold and rainy day. A strange contrast between the rather bleak day and the colours of the merry-go-round. Not surprisingly, not a lot of people around, never mind kids; makes you wonder what the owner is waiting for.

Pintsch Harbour (Pintschhafen)

- Posted in Seasons by

Today, the Pintsch harbour in Fürstenwalde is but a small remainder (and reminder) of the former Pintsch industrial estate with more than 12.000 employees. This photo was taken December 2012. Since then, winters with snow have become pretty scarce. The full-sized image (approx. 12 MB) can be downloaded here.

Thanks to double-glazing, frost patterns (Eisblumen in German) on windows are now an endangered species. When we moved into our new home 10 years ago, we still had the older type of windows that became frost-coated in winter. The morning sun illuminating the ice cristalls bringing back old memories of being a kid snuggled in warm, soft duvets, listening for mum firing up the oven.

Christmas Market in Fürstenwalde, Germany

- Posted in Seasons by

Fürstenwalde is a small town east of Berlin. Beginning of December, the town sets up two huge decorated Christmas trees and the Christmas market near the cathedral attracts a lot of visitors. It is always worth a photo session. All photos were taken with a Walimex/Rokinon 85 mm lens with an aperture of 1.4. It has no autofocus and has an "analog feel", but for low-light sceneries like these its a pretty decent glas.
