A Goose’s Thought

“If I were to suggest that between the Earth and Mars there is a china teapot revolving about the sun in an elliptical orbit, nobody would be able to disprove my assertion provided I were careful to add that the teapot is too small to be revealed even by our most powerful telescopes. But if I were to go on to say that, since my assertion cannot be disproved, it is an intolerable presumption on the part of human reason to doubt it, I should rightly be thought to be talking nonsense. If, however, the existence of such a teapot were affirmed in ancient books, taught as the sacred truth every Sunday, and instilled into the minds of children at school, hesitation to believe in its existence would become a mark of eccentricity and entitle the doubter to the attentions of the psychiatrist in an enlightened age or of the Inquisitor in an earlier time.”

Maybe it’s not the goose’s thought but Bertrand Russell‘s, anyway it’s a good thought. ;-)

Enjoy & take care,

P.S. Adrian, I can’t reply to your comment, because of the two-replies constraint. I want to go to England anyway, I think next spring, so there should be a possibility to visit Bristol. I’m looking forward to it.

Hamburg // Night & Day // Hello, I’m back. ;-)

Good evening, 

well, what can I say? I’ve been lacking inspiration for quite some time and just didn’t feel like picking up my camera. Anyway I think photography is starting to get me again, so I’m relaunching this blog, I hope that I didn’t lose all of my former readers. Just let me tell you, I’m sorry for just quitting without giving notice. Today, let’s start with a little street photography, the first one was taken last night, the second one this afternoon.

Enjoy & take care,

Jimi

Of Time and Memory

Dear all,

you might have already seen two photos of this series on my project 365 blog, I posted two other photos there last week.

Recently I found some old, broken pocket watches at my grandmothers house (my grand-grandfather was a watch maker). The next day I was thinking about how I could use these for my photography. In the end I used some sewing cotton to attach the watches to a tree in my parents garden and played a little with some extreme depth of field.

I’m not certain about the meaning of theses photos, or what I wanted to intend shooting them. Just thinking about time and some things of the past. I’m curious for your opinion on these.

Enjoy & take care,

Jimi

p.s. Check out www.jimisproject365.com please, I post a new photo every day. =)

Happy New Year

Dear all,

I hope all of you had wonderful holidays and a good start into the new year. A happy New Year to you from me and thank you for following my blog and all your support in 2013.

I started a project 365 you can find it at www.jimisproject365.com , check it out, I looking forward for your opinion on the daily posts.

This is a photo taken at my parents house, I think I wrote in an earlier post that my mother always puts flowers in our rooms when my sister and I visit them. I really like the 50mm even if it’s Nikon’s cheapest lens (I think it is).

Enjoy & take care,

Jimi

Chess in NYC

Dear all,

this is one (of many ;-) ) of my favourite photos of the trip to NYC in May. I just like the “equality” between the two guys, even though the game ended with a shattering defeat for the guy wearing the suit. Taken at Union Square.

Enjoy & take care,

Jimi

A story to be told

Dear all,

I saw this in Amsterdam, near the (or in) the red light district, which is basically the center of the city. ;-)

He probably has lots of stories to tell.

Enjoy & take care,

Empire State Building I

Dear all,

we all have probably seen this view a thousand times before, but this is my personal capture from the top of the Empire State Building, facing north towards Central Park. We (by now it’s me) visited the Empire State Building on the first evening of our NYC-trip in May this year, it was a fantastic experience. A moment I won’t forget. I definitely miss New York, somehow there is something very special about this city. Maybe I should try to get a job in NYC after finishing my masters, next year. Click on the picture to see a larger version.

Enjoy & take care (my jacket got stolen last night, so take extra care this time),
