Chasing Light

I’m forever chasing light.
Light turns the ordinary into the magical.
Trent Parke
 

I just noticed I didn’t blog about my own photography yet. My favourite „topic“ in photography is light, creating a magical atmosphere using light and shadows. I love the shapes that are made by different shadows in the afternoon, I love reflections in windows at night and silhouettes against a light background. All photos were taken by me between 2008 and 2010. I paused my photography for lack of inspiration, money (analogue photography is just too expensive) and because I didn’t want to take my SLR to Peru. But I want to start again. Finding magical moments and fixing them onto negatives or paper is a wonderful hobby, and I’m proud of my photos.

3 Things we should re-think about the world

To this post, I was kind of inspired by Miss Peppermint. In my interview with her, I asked her what kind of topics she would like to read more about in other blogs. She answered that she is interested in what other people are „fighting for“, what kind of topics move them. I have a lot of topics that matter to me, but returning from Peru and having attended a lot of seminars about racism that really made me re-think my education and thought patterns, one of the topics I want to fight for is how we, Europeans and North Americans, better known as „the West“ are seeing „the rest“, or correctly said, countries of the Global South.

This blog entry isn’t meant like a accusation. It’s only supposed to give everyone who never had contact to the topic of racism something to think about. Weiterlesen

Goodbye, Regensburg!

Regensburg, I’ll miss…
… strolling around the river Danube in the evening.
… your summer nights.
… the view from my window in autumn.
… living close to nature.
… your Bavarian „traditions“.
… taking a walk around neat houses.
… your party nights.
… and crazy places!

I was born and lived 18 years of my life in Regensburg, south-eastern Germany. It’s a beautiful city, small and familiar, but with a lot of opportunities and cultural life. It has a beautiful old town, keeps its heritage, but still has a modern touch. 2006, it became UNESCO cultural heritage. The old town of Regensburg can be found in the book „1000 Places to see before you die“.

Full of parks and small forests, combining the atmosphere of living on the countryside and living in a city, being a nice home to families and a great party location for university students at the same time, having an interesting history and a lot of places to relax… it’s the perfect place to live!
Today, I’m moving. But I’ll always come back!
All photos taken by myself between 2008 and 2011.

Ein paar Fotos aus Perú – Cusco

Momentan möchte ich mich wirklich den ganzen Tag nur im Bett verkriechen… Das Wetter ist grau und es regnet, ich hoffe das ändert sich bald, denn ich habe für morgen ein Fotoshooting geplant!

Eigentlich wollte ich euch nicht mit Fotos aus Peru überfluten, aber da einige von euch meinen Post Inspiration aus Peru mochten, hab ich mich dazu entschlossen, einen zweiten Post zu erstellen. Die Bilder haben leider keine Top-Qualität, weil ich meine Spiegelreflexkamera nicht mit nach Peru genommen habe – eine gute Entscheidung, schließlich wurde mir auf dem Weg nach Monanita, Ecuador, meine Digicam geklaut.
