Where the walls met, the texture and colour difference made the picture itself. The two halfs are apart and yet connected, as it is the same wall in a way.
In the postprocessing I have tried to increase the texture, colours and contrast, in order to emphasize the feel of the mortar and stone.
Out in the streets before the rest of the tourists wake up. Had a wish to kind of ‘have the town for myself’ in order to make some pictures in monochrome.
The narrow Streets. The houses. The shops. The corners and piazzas. It all invited to experiment with monochrome. So I got out of bed earlier than usual. Left the hotel with my mobile and took a stroll in the heart of the town.
I was indeed alone in the sense of being a tourist. Only the locals were up, getting shops and resturants ready for another busy day. The weather was bright but slightly cloudy. So I had not to worry about too much contrast in my pictures when taken. I would rather work with that in the postprocessing later.

In a way I felt like in a time-capsule when walking around, looking at the old houses, backyards and shops.
Eventually I ended up at the lokal Inn for lunch.
Below some pictures from the day.

When thinking still-life in a photographic sense, one might picture a studio with a lot of lights and flashes, and a big camera on a tripod. Hmmm… A dream scenario I admit. But less is reality for me. My livingroom, a dinnertable, a couple of photolamp-stands, a couple of reading-lamps atached to the stands, a diffuser/reflector set, and various cardboard in black and white. Add to that a smartphone and a Gorilla tripod, and I am set to go.

This wooden rose, once bought in Austria, was put on a mirror to get the reflection beneath it. A diffuse backlight and light from the front right. The front light was in a slight above position. Continue reading “Wooden Rose”
Sometimes patterns just look like something from a fantasy, a dream, a movie or whatever. Some days ago i passed by a concrete wall and this grabbed my attention.
An alien. Marked in the concrete.
