Lisbon in Color

The last series of photographs I published on the website were rather dark toned or held entirely in black and white. Though I very much like the use of monochrome in photography, especially in street photography (check out the amazing work of Viviane Maier, I also recommend the beautiful documentary about her life I saw recently), many photographers actually seem to forget their lenses are capably of capturing some beautiful light and colors. So my little goal for this one was to highlight the amazing range of colors you encounter walking on a sunny day through the old town of Lisbon.

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:

Shooting Anna in Berlin and Lisboa

So usually I don’t do photo shoots here. I like photographing people though, mostly it’s street photography. Anyway. I had the joy to hang out with beautiful & charming Anna this year in Lisboa and Berlin and shooting a lot actually 🙂 A couple of shots turned quite well  and so I decided to break the convention and put them on here. (@ Anna, immer wieder gerne :-))

On a Rainy Day in Lisboa

Olá Portugal! It’s almost two weeks now since I moved to beautiful Lisboa. Besides of the training for the job I started, there was a lot of administrative stuff to get done. But now things get settled more and more. There are still a lot of shots left from the last months I want to put on here in the upcoming weeks. But since I am posting now from Portugal I think it is appropriate to get back with a couple of pictures from my new home town 🙂

So basically it’s rain season now. There are nice days too, but there is a lot of rain and moist and mist (though it doesn’t really get could, no dear Portuguese people 15 C° does definitely not count as cold). Still, or maybe even more so, the city is as beautiful and charming as I remember her from my last trips. It’s a joy to be here for a longer period of time. I feel grateful.

Hill of Crosses, Lithuania Pt. II (2014 Update)

This one is a follow up to a series I did last year about the (in)famous Hill of Crosses in Lithuania. You can read it up here. To be honest, not much changed since then. I guess the hill grew a little bit and there are some more crosses now, as they seem to mulitply on a daily rate. It remains a mysterious place, strangly alluring yet somewhat creepy. It makes for interesting pictures, that’s for sure.
