The Sun is Blinding

So, the result of last weeks photo challenge at Letsbewild just came in, and I was fortunate not to get an honorable mention.
What surprised my was that it wasn’t the one with the bridge that won (my favorite), but instead this one.

It is not that I don’t like this photograph, but it was just something I snapped as I walked past, not something I composed or put great thought into. It just proves that sometimes it helps not to think to much when it comes to photography. You just need to follow your instincts.

Gloomy streetlight in Bruxelles (and some B/W’s)

 

So, I just stumbled over some photographs that I took in October on a weekend trip to Bruxelles. It is a beautiful city; gorgeous buildings and nice cafés. But be aware; they hate your credit card. You won’t be able to pay anything under 10€ with card, so you have to have cash, which sucks when you’re used to a “civilized” society that accepts your card even if you have to buy a 10 cent bubblegum…

Lens flair

I took this photo the other day when I was walking home from work in the sunshine.
I don’t think the apartment buildings are particularly beautiful, but I do like the composition and the angles of the photograph.

Childlike, Wild Life

When I grow up I want to be a little boy.” – Joseph Heller

I took this photo when I was at work today. I am working at a school, entertaining the little ones when their classes end.
So today I was outside, supervising while the kids were having fun; driving moon cars, rollerskating, playing soccer, you name it.

I was sitting with my camera, playing with the settings, doing nothing really, when suddenly this 1st grader comes charging right past me, fearless, filled with joy, arms extended like an aeroplane. I instinctively pressed and hoped for the best.

Rollerblades finalThis photo was taken by me on March 3, 2013 around 12 AM. It was shot with a Sony NEX-6 with an attached Sigma 30mm f/2.8 EX DN lens. The settings: Speed: 1/250 s, focal lenght: 30mm/45mm FF-equivalent, ISO: 100.  f/5.6.

Moments later he fell, but he didn’t care, he didn’t give up, he just laughed, cause that’s how children think.
I am reminded everyday of the importance of remaining childlike. Everyone have been a child at one point, the hard thing is to remain one as you grow up.

Under the Bridge

“Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph.”
– Matt Hardy

So, I indicated yesterday that their might be a B/W photo in the works.
When I went for a walk this Sunday, I passed this freeway bridge that I thought would be perfect for an oldschool black & white photo.

The photo (click to view largest version):

Smoking Sunrise

Today I was up at 6:30 in order to be ready at the beach before the sun rose.

I had expected the real beauty to reveal itself at 07:01 when the sun was to rise above the horizon, but that turned out to be untrue. The most beautiful time was 15-30 minutes before, when the clouds and sea take color and mix with the dark night sky.

Metallic birds

Todays photo’s were taken in October last year, when I was out walking with a friend. We came upon this lake in the forrest, and the lightning were just gorgeous. In photography, lightning truly is everything.

Next stop Panama!

Long time no see…

Hopefully the photos will soon start flowing.
On April 3, I am leaving Denmark for greener pastures. I have in mind to backpack through Central America on a 3 month adventure, and hopefully I will come across a scene or two worth a photo.

I will try to update regularly, but it might be on a weekly basis since I expect leave civilization and go off the grid for longer intervals, hence the lack of internet connections.

I might update on travel preperations in the weeks leading up to departure, but otherwise it will be from the April 3 and onwards.

Until then you will have to suffice with photos from cold cold Denmark.
