Kracow 2017 AD

Usually I don’t use as much processing but looking at my pictures from Cracow last year I felt inspired to work on them a bit. Especially interesting for me seemed the red colours of the historic buildings of the city and I searched for a way to bring them more to the front, wile giving the pictures at the same time a more classic black and white look. Three of them (pictures 1, 3, 4) show the Wawel, being the former castle hill of the Polish kings and an important national monument of the country.

Streetphotography in Monochrome

In the last couple of weeks I worked on a complete redesign of the website. The aim was to make it more functional and accessible – and give it a pretty new look. So it took a lot of time and I didn’t have much of it. Anyway, finally it is ready for 2015 and I can get back to business – posting photography it was, if I remember correctly.

Before I get to that a quick orientation walk through the new site:
On the front page you see a header showpiece on top (be patient if it doesn’t pop out immediately, it will load eventually), below the last seven posts are displayed in chronological order.  If you click on “show more” on the bottom of the page you can access the older ones. Another possibility to browse through the posts is to make use of the calendar or the archives in the sidebar. I think the functionality is quite self-explanatory, so I won’t elaborate. There is also a neat search function on the top of the side bar and a tag cloud if you like it more topic-oriented. So the site works mostly through the front page now with the side-bar as toolkit for navigation. However the top menu is not gone entirely. The About or Contact section remained basically unchanged, so if you want to give me some feedback – that’s the way to go and I would certainly appreciate it (or you can comment the individual posts of course) 🙂 The other menu points are brand new. So the portfolio section is basically a new way I conceive and re-organize photo series by creating portfolios out of thematically or geographically linked posts. So instead of searching all of my Usbekistan posts for example, here you have them in one place ready to view. Another new thing ist the Store. If you like you can buy prints or digital copy rights for certain pictures via the 500px store. It’s just a selection, if you need something else please contact me. So that’s it. Back to business:

Greek Series: Greece in Black and White

This post is part of the so called “Greek Series”, consisting of photographies I shot while backpacking Greece in September 2013. You’ll find a basic introduction to the series here and a list of all previous posts over here.

Without any doubt Greece is a colorful country and I myself am very fond of powerful colors in photographs. But interestingly sometimes the absence of color brings focus and a certain sharpness to pictures.

Afternoon Project: London Pt. 3, Before Remembrance Day

As it turned out the day I was in London on the 10th of November also was the day before Remembrance Day and Westminster was in full preparations for the big event. Remembrance Day basically evolved out of the mourning for the death of World War I and became a kind of Veterans Day with a lot of military parades and symbolism. Interestingly already the day before there were a lot of veterans on White Hall and I had the chance to photograph some of them.
