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

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,

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,

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.

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),

A bar in Amsterdam / my nine lives

Hey,

when I was in Amsterdam for the weekend 2 weeks ago, with some friends, I spent the Sunday afternoon alone. First I went to the Van Gogh Museum (it was awesome), what was the reason I spent the afternoon alone, because none of my friends wanted to go. After the Museum I somehow spent the rest of the day by myself which was a really good experience. Especially when I found a nice bar, grabbed the only magazine that was in English and had a beer. It was a really good experience just to be by myself, observing the surroundings and chatting with the bar tender every now and then.

These are some of the photos I took while being there. I especially liked the phrase “My nine lives…” it makes me remember how perfect life is. =)

Enjoy & take care,

Jimi

Hey,

I took this photo in May, while taking a walk through the Central Park. A lovely spot.

It was a beautiful evening, somehow I miss New York.

Lauren in Liège

I took this photo on the same trip to Liège where I took this picture of Clara. Somehow I was reminded of Thomas Höpkers famous photo of Muhammad Ali whilst taking the shot. Anyway I don’t want to place myself on the same level as a world-famous photographer working for Magnum.

Enjoy & take care,

Chasing Doves at the Sacré-Cœur

Hey,

as you might have noticed many big cities are overcrowded with doves and many people really detest them. Anyway, in my opinion it is quite interesting to take photos of doves, as a kind of a proxy for urban photography.  Around the Sacré-Cœur in Paris there were a lot of doves, mainly unnoticed by most of the people passing by.

Anyhow a little boy really fascinated me, by chasing the doves for quite a long time (at least 20 minutes, I hat to wait at the bottom of the hill, because Lesley and I lost the rest of our group while walking through the church). While waiting I took about ten photos of the little boy and I think that this one turned out really good.

Just after leaving the terrain of the church and the surrounding park i saw this piece of street-art sprayed on the sidewalk. I really enjoyed alteration of the Disney logo.
