This is my day

I’m in the test mode….

Nikon D 5000 vs. Nikon D7100

both tested with Sigma 70-200 mm 1/2,8 + Sigma 2.0 converter. There is a little difference in fact….

World Relaxation Day…

Something I read a few minutes before…

“It’s National Relaxation Day! Today we live in a very fast-paced world that is often stressful and overwhelming. National Relaxation Day is all about taking a step back to unwind and decompress.

Although a certain amount of stress is normal, too much of it can be harmful to your physical and mental health. Take care of yourself today. Read a book, get a message, watch a movie, go for a long walk, or take a nap. No matter what you choose to do, just remember to take it easy, even if it’s only for a few minutes. Happy National Relaxation Day!”

 

… so what shall I think about it… I have to relish that one and only day and be prepared to survive the stressing time during the rest of the year what means in days:    3 6 4   (in words THREEHUNDREDSIXTYFOUR)…

When The Weather Is Bad…

…. cancel the project you planned for this day and make another one

This project is called: I don’t care for bad weather


r.i.p. Neil Armstrong

it was one of the great moments in my childhood to share the first landing on the moon summer ’69. We spent our holidays at the north sea in a cottage my mother rented. We had to feed the TV with DM coins and when the moment came that the eagle should land on the moon’s surface suddenly the screen was black!!!!

“Where are all the coins” was the question – and a lot of panic in the whole family to find them. I suppose it was only a few seconds till we found them, but I felt it was like an eternity….

 

That’s why I was  in the mood to compose this little image.


summer?

I shot one image in december 2011 and the other one a few days before…

*yum yum*

the perfect end of a much too short weekend…


yeah, today we tried to cook with a tajine (from Morocco)….

*yayyyy*  with   s u c c e s s s !

The result could make me a veggie – what a wonderful taste!!!
But the arguments again a veggie-life were too strong. Sorry veggies 😉

the opener – some salmon with potatoes and a baked tomato

the main dish “cup of rump”

and last not least – the dessert


Why I prefer RAW

… ’cause I’m sure that I never could edit this bad image that way you see below.
I loved that snapshot, but if it was a JPEG it would find the direct way – into the trash bin!

Here you see the copy of the original image that was shot in RAW and the edit below.


Sometimes I really want to know what’s going up in her little soul….

Wish you all had a wonderful Whit Weekend!


Robert Moog

Today it would be his 78th birthday.

His legendary synthesizers are still in my ears. A few years ago I heard it on stage played by Jordan Rudess @ a Dream Theater Gig in Hamburg. That really made me remember the great times with Yes (Rick Wakeman) and ELP (Keith Emerson) in the early and mid-seventies….

Not to forget the Fender Rhodes or Wurlitzer Pianos and the Hammond B3…

All analogue instruments – like the music itself

amen……


> 30° C in the shade…..

… too hot. So Tony found the coolest place in the house – the dorm.


I modified it…..

…. to show the truth 😉

“La Guerre Des Boutons”

Our two little  “furry ladies” played “War Of The Buttons” this morning. Here you can see the result…..


I don’t need no “tilt shift generator” ;-)


Münster/NRW – yesterday

Yesterday I was @ a gig of “Ohrenfeindt” from Hamburg. I relished true rock ‘n roll the whole night. Here you see three of 300 shots that I made there.


When the short night was over….

Here we say “der frühe Vogel fängt den Wurm” what means “the early bird catches the worm”.  I woke up early this morning and when I had a look out of the window and I saw a clear black sky I said to myself  “later you’ll live to see how it is to shoot at ./. 12 ° Celsius and some wind…. When I arrived at the place to make the first shoot I realized that I forgot my remote control and my 70-200mm 1:2,8….. OMG my fingers 😉

Two shots for you


Hello!

Yes I know I’m very late with it – Happy New Year!
I’ll promise that I’ll improve and show some more presence…
Meanwhile winter has come to the northern parts of Germany
and in spite of the low temperatures I’ve been outside to make some shots.
Here you see an image of my hometown


Death Reminds live @ Rock against National-Socialism

Well Death Reminds is one of the 4 juvenile bands who traveled around Scandinavia with the Tour-Project I was with as the musical leader of that project. Here they performed at a rock festival that ran one day before the election in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern . The good news is that the Nazis lost loyalists but they are still in the parliament of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (and that’s the bad news)……


I suppose you can see what kind of music they play 😉
