Place In The World

Mystic Nature Black and White
This week photo challenge calls for what it means „to find your place in the world.“ And „where do you go when you need to feel inspired or cheered up?“ So Neil Young onced said „home is where your heart is.“ I would add my place is where my heart and my family is.

My favorite place for inspiration is mother nature. If I am looking for inspiration or to recharge my battery, then I go out to nature. Nature is so amazing and a literally magic place. For the photochallenge I decided to share two black and white images perfect with the lyrics by Tom Petty. And finally it is a good chance to continue my black and white photo series mystic nature. The idea behind the series is to explore and follow the light and to capture special light moods. Because photography means among other things to paint with light. Enjoy!

„Runnin’ down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin’ on a mystery,
goin’ wherever it leads…“
(Tom Petty)

Favorite Place

Down By The River
This week photo challenge calls for a favorite place, a viewpoint and finally a place that brings you joy. Living in a harbor city the answer is simple: the river elbe. It is Hamburg’s main waterway, the Elbe river connects the city to the North Sea. The best you can also enjoy the 23 kilometres of the Elbewanderweg path which leads from Wedel past the nature reserve Wittenberger Heide to Blankenese. I depicted the nature reserve Wittenberger Heide with his beautiful beach and nature.

Diese Woche heißt es in der Weekly Photo Challenge, zeig deinen Lieblingsort, einen Platz der einem Freude macht um abzuschalten und zu relaxen. Wenn man in einer Hafenstadt lebt ist die nächstliegendste Antwort: an der Elbe. Die Elbe ist der Hauptwasserweg und verbindet die Stadt bis hin zur Nordsee. Das schöne dabei ist u.a. der 23 Kilometer lange Ebwanderweg ab Wedel über das Naturreservat Wittenbergen bis zu Blankenese. Hier einige Bilder vom Naturreservat Wittenbergen mit seinem schönen Strand, der Natur und noch schöneren Aussichten.

Bridges

What do you love about where you live? Show us! This is the actual Weekly Photo Challenge „Tour Guide“ and my contribution which is maybe a bit different. I am not a tour guide or city photographer. My passion for photography is to capture the extra in the ordinary which means special moods, forms, colours in Landscape and Nature Photography. But as I read the challenge I had an idea.

Do you know that the many streams, rivers and canals in the city of Hamburg are crossed by some 2.500 bridges, more than London, Amsterdam and Venice put together. Hamburg has more bridges inside its city limits than any other city in the world. It is a good chance to share what I love about the place I live: Bridges. For the photo challenge I created a small gallery of different bridges. Enjoy!

Passion is the bridge that takes you from pain to change
(Frida Kahlo)


Was mag man besonders an der Stadt in der man lebt? Das ist das aktuelle Foto-Thema der Woche und mein Beitrag, der vermutlich ein wenig anders geraten ist. Ich bin weder ein Tour Guide oder City-Fotograf. Meine Leidenschaft für Fotografie ist das besondere im normalen zu fotografieren sowie bestimmte Stimmungen, Formen, Farben im Genre der Landschafts- und Natur-Fotografie. Doch als ich das Foto-Motto las, hatte ich eine Idee.

Denn ich zeige zum Thema Brücken in Hamburg. Wer es noch nicht wusste: die vielen Flüsse, Kanäle und Ströme werden mit ca. 2.500 Brücken überbückt. Das sind mehr Brücken als in London, Venedig und Amsterdam zusammen. Die Hansestadt Hamburg hat in der Innenstadt so viele Brücken wie in keiner anderen Stadt, weltweit. Was ich besonders an Hamburg mag sind u.a. Brücken. Für das Foto-Thema habe ich eine kleine Galerie mit verschiedenen Brücken ausgwählt. Viel Spaß beim Schauen.

Ascend in Architecture

Clouds Office Building
„We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.“
(Winston S. Churchill)

Share your upwards moments is the actual Weekly Photo Challenge: Ascend. It is a good chance to share a post of architecture photography meeting the theme I think. The first image shows an Office Building and a wonderful sky. What an inspiring upward moment. To look uoward in photography can bring you new and interesting perspectives. Enjoy the small gallery.

Teile Deinen Moment mit Blick nach oben ist das aktuelle Wochenthema der „Photo Weekly Challenge: Ascend“. Eine gute Gelegenheit um einige Architektur-Fotos zu zeigen, wie ich finde. Das erste Foto zeigt ein Geschäftsgebäude mit einem fabelhaften Himmel samt Wolken. Der Blick nach oben kann immer wieder zu neuen wie interessanten Perspektiven führen.

The Temporary Glory Of Fall Colors

Fall Colours
This is my entry for this week´s Weekly Photo Challenge „Temporary“. Autumn/Fall season is my favourite season. Because of the unique light and special mood. Not to forget that the Fall period is the year last and loveliest smile, as someone correct said. And it is a perfect moment to listen to the chanson „Les Feuilles Mortes,“, better known as „Autumn Leaves“, based from a poem by french author Jacques Prévert.

„Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall…“

Finally I select some previous images celebrating the beauty and glory of fall colors. I invite you to use the WordPress Viewer. With one click on each photo, the WordPress Viewer makes the photos it large. Enjoy.

Glow

Sunset Mood taken at the river
This is my entry for this week´s Weekly Photo Challenge „Glow“ which is one of my favourite theme and perfect with some Golden Hour Photography. And for a small glow gallery, sailing into sunset, the harbour athmosphere and nature and landscape photography, I invite you to use the WordPress Viewer. With one click on each photo, the WordPress Viewer makes the photos it large. Enjoy.

„The ratio of successful shots is one in God-knows-how-many. Sometimes you’ll get several in one contact sheet, and sometimes it’s none for days. But as long as you go on taking pictures, you’re likely to get a good one at some point.“
(Elliott Erwitt)

„Glow“ ist das aktuelle Foto-Wochenthema der „Weekly Photo Challenge“, was ein ebenso interessantes wie schönes Thema ist. Was passt dabei besser als die Stimmung zur Goldenen Stunde einzufangen, wo man auf einem Schiff in den Sonnenuntergang segelt, die Hafenathmosphäre und dazu kommt Natur- und Landschaftsfotografie. Mit einem Klick auf Fotos in der Galerie öffnet sich der WordPress Viewer, der die Fotos größer macht.

Weekly Photo Challenge Satisfaction

Hydrangea Monochrome
This is my entry for this week´s Weekly Photo Challenge „Satisfaction“ which is an interesting theme. The first image I had in my mind was the hydrangea blossom captured in black and white. Love the beauty of the hydrangea/hortensia blossom with her really interesting sapels.

„Satisfaction“ ist das aktuelle Foto-Wochenthema der „Weekly Photo Challenge“, was ein ebenso interessantes Thema ist. Spontan hatte ich das Foto dieser Hortensienblüte, in schwarz/weiß, im Kopf. Besonders mag ich die Blüte mit ihren interessanten Kelchblättern. Dies ist mein Beitrag zu diesem Thema.
