Emergency Exit

Is there an emergency exit? Will I be able to escape from a toothbrush which wants to talk to my iPhone, a coffee maker which displays the current news, a car which decides to break or not… may be I just have to pull the plugs.

Shadow Flames – this image has been taken at one of my regular morning walks in Frankfurt a few moments (actually years) of time ago. Shadow and light…  may the light be with us all.

The blue bridge – not as gigantic as the Tower Bridge in London or the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, but the KWB – Kaiser Wilhelm Brücke in Wilhelmshaven is a landmark of the North.

Urban Landscape: Sky Tower in Light

Reinhold Staden Photography – Sky tower in Light

Sometimes landscape photography has to include urban landscapes. I still miss to shoot architecture. Living in a remote spot in the North of Germany, there are not many tall buildings nearby. Actually NO tall buildings. When I search through my archives I often stumble over an urban / architecture image. So today I have a go. This image was taken a few years ago in Frankfurt. Processed in LR and PS today. A journey back in time…

It’s not over until it’s over

Amsterdam. Remember? A few days ago I asked for advice of photo locations offsite the usual tourist attractions? I also studied the internet and made a plan of locations to visit (obviously the top 10 tourist attractions). I had 1.5 “daytime slots” only. To summarize my results in a few words: wrong expectations, wrong planning, wrong attitude (one that day), mixed weather, overwhelmed by the amount of cars, people, bridges, house boats, bicycles…I wasn’t prepared for street photography either (-> Noortje’s advice)  The location and my state of mind wouldn’t come together on day 1. The next day was just a sequel of the first day. Amsterdam is such a beautiful location. I know there are these hidden gems I was looking for. Somewhere. It’s not over until it’s over. I have to come back. Different time of the year and definitely at night time. Different / other expectations and attitude. I will leave you now with a few impression of Amsterdam and Haarlem (last 2 photos). Did you ever had a similar experience? I felt like being part of a movie. It wasn’t real. Smiles. Reinhold
