Shadow Flames

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.

In the air tonight

Textures of music, light and fog… in the air tonight

In the air tonight

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
And I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord
Well if you told me you were drowning, I would not lend a hand
I’ve seen your face before my friend, but I don’t know if you know who I am
Well I was there and I saw what you did, I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off that grin, I know where you’ve been
It’s all been a pack of lies

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
Well I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
Well I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord
Well I remember, I remember, don’t worry, how could I ever forget
It’s the first time, the last time we ever met
But I know the reason why you keep your silence up, oh no you don’t fool me
Well the hurt doesn’t show, but the pain still grows
It’s no stranger to you and me

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
Well been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I can feel it in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord
Well I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
And I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I can feel it in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord
Well I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord
I can feel it in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord
Well I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord

The roads taken in New Zealand

5 weeks – 5 senses – 5 t-shirts… in 2007 and 2012 we spent 5 weeks each on the roads of amazing New Zealand. Brings back memories of great landscapes, great people and great roads. I would like to be on these roads again!

The Road Taken

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

Winds of change or walking the dog

This morning (Sunday, September 6, 2015 – 10:00 am) I decided to implement some minor changes for my blog.
I view this blog as my portfolio of photography. I will not participate in any WordPress challenges from now on. It was fun, but I would like to concentrate on my work and would like to spent more time on this. This is an award free blog – your comments, your likes and your follow ship are my award. I will continue to actively work with you as my community which I need, love and admire. I deleted the Fuji pages. This is time consuming and I think there are enough professional sites out there providing recent information about my gear.

That’s it! Nothing major, nothing serious. Just trying to focus on things I love to do.

Smiles!

Reinhold
