Looking Ahead

Looking Ahead
Disaster seems to have fallen in love with me. The day I turned in my 5D for repair I came back home to find that my external hard drive had crashed. To make matter worse I had failed to backup my most recent photos, numbering around 150. I tried to recover, but as my luck would have it I could recover almost everything else except for my photos!

This is one of the three original (RAW) files I managed to recover. Oh well, I hope my luck in the new year will be better. On that note I’ll sign off for now. Here’s wishing you all a Happy New Year. Hope the year ahead will be good for you. See you next year!

Unfortunately, today I had to given in my 5D for repair after it developed a problem. So I’ll be depending on photos I’ve shot over the past couple of weeks and the photos I’ve scanned (or still have to scan) from my film negs. I hope that I’ll have enough until the 5D comes back from repair.

This is from a Christmas market I went to last week. This stall was selling all kinds of stones from all over the world. However, these little trees caught my eye.

Yesterday, I went to one of the Christmas markets here with a friend. I managed to get a few decent shots which I’ll post over the next few days, starting with this. It was from a stall that had a huge display of these figures. Each one of these ‘characters’ tells a story.

Second in a series of two. This came out quite soft as the focus was not spot on. But with some sharpening applied I think it looks better although I’m still wondering if the composition really works.

This is something from a while back. The weather now is nowhere as good as it was on the day this photo was taken. Can’t say what exactly it is but it looked like a faded flower bud to me. I’ve another photo of this shot from a different angle which I’ll be posting tomorrow.

Eighteen times I breathed, in your arms, waiting for your answer. Eighteen times I cried, on your shoulder, overwhelmed by my desire. Eighteen times I laughed, on your chest, watching your silly faces. Eighteen times I died, in your words, overcome by sadness.

(Perhaps the last of the recent series of photos from my trip to Berlin last year. Again shot with my Dynax 5 film SLR. This is an installation in the Ku’damm area of Berlin near the Europa Haus.)

Scents and Senses

Scents and Senses
Surrounded by these colors of my dreams I look at you and wonder what you see in me. My bare heart? My hungry eyes? My colored senses? My smooth pate? My lonely lips? My fake feelings? My dreams spiraling through my pale skin?

(Another one from a trip to Berlin last year shot with my film Dynax 5 SLR. An advert of sorts on the famous Kaufhaus des Westens in the tres chic Ku’damm area.)

Round and Round

Round and Round
Another one from Berlin shot with my film Dynax 5 SLR. It is the roof, as seen from the inside, of a museum near the Charlottenburg Palace (opposite the Egyptian Museum), whose name I cannot recall now. I’ve to admit I quite like the way this photo came out. The lighting especially is lovely even though I say so myself.
