Today I am posting something fun! My husband and I went to the Kramermarkt, which is a funfair that starts at the end of September in Oldenburg, Germany. First we tried different wines at a winery stand. My husband shot a perfect score at a shooting gallery and won a big fluffy stuffed dog with big big eyes. At the end we went on the Ferris wheel and saw the whole city from up above. I usually don’t like going to funfairs but this particular day was very special, because I was able to spend a very romantic day with my husband!
Today I thought show a series of my hometown, (well one of my hometowns: Santa Monica, California). I have spend most of my life here and I was lucky to live so close to the ocean. These moments are very unusual and rare I think, especially when you think of California. But I love the moments when the thick fog comes in from the pacific ocean and you see buildings and palm trees slowly disappearing. So I grabbed the camera quickly and walked to Palisades Park next to Ocean Avenue. These are taken with my digital canon camera.
Stadtgottesacker is a small but very beautiful cemetery in the city Halle. There are many important figures buried here, among others, the family of the composer Händel. While I was studying in Halle I have been there a couple of times to take pictures of this place. I do miss living there because it was a beautiful small town with many old buildings and a lot of history. These images are taken with my 35mm Nikon analog camera with a black and white film.
Going through old images it is sometimes surprising finding and seeing things that one hasn’t noticed before. As I was looking through my old images I decided to put together several mini-series. They are neither long term projects nor mere snapshots of one moment. Most of these photographs reveal experiences and impressions of a place and maybe more. Well let’s see what else I can find! My first set of images are of the cemetery Stadtgottesacker in Halle, Germany. They are taken with my 35mm Nikon analog camera. To see the album go to: Flickr
