down by the river

I was told, yesterday, that my nature photos emit the feeling of isolation or loneliness and thus contradict the warmth and liveliness of the wedding shots. This was wonderful because, I never noticed this but it got me thinking and looking at the shots again and I think he was right (reading this, are you? ).

This morning at 8.30 I went out and about. Shot just 10 photos. And yes, they do kinda look like that again.  Maybe it is because I seek out ...well not loneliness but being alone. I try to evade people when I am out by myself because they usually are loud and distracting and bitch at me for sitting on a bench reading a text message (really, I almost got in a fight with the old man because he was so rude. It's none of his business.).

So, I am all for being alone once in a while. Thinking, being, breathing, looking. I need it to be honest or I'd go mental.

I've missed taking photos but I just didn't have the time to do it for myself. I'm not talking about photoshoots, there is time for those always. But for everything else, including catching up with you guys.

I promise to be better. I'll have some weeks off soon, too (God I want to go to Bruge...Brügge.. or something. Shoot those old films. Maybe I can fit it in).

I'll do anything for a good shot...

...okay, ALMOST anything but since the bride was pregnant and went up there and a really really big guy said he'd go up with me too...I went. They even wanted to go aaaaalll the way up and I said whtareyoukiddingmeaworldofno. :-)

Hochzeit in Feudenheim. Das Gruppenfoto dieses Mal von oben, trotz Höhenangst und Agoraphobie meine Lieben. Aber ich war ja in guten Händen, nur gaaaanz hoch wollte ich dann doch nicht.

dogs everywhere

From yesterday's shooting.
Second dog from above is Fridolin and he scared the shit out of me. 70kg and he is still growing.
The white fluffy one is a Labradoodle. I've never seen one before and I really liked him.
The second day of shooting will be in June.

Gestern fand das große Hundeshooting in Zusammenarbeit mit Tamaras Pfotentreff in Mannheim statt. Wir hatten viel Spaß, auch wenn mir Fridolin (zweiter Hund von oben) mit seinen 70 kg doch etwas Angst gemacht hat. Der wächst noch und ist ja jetzt schon fast auf Augenhöhe mit mir.
Der Labradoodle Milow (weiß, mit Fliege) war dagegen einfach nur lustig und am Spielen. Und die kleine Cockerdame fühlte sich sehr wohl auf ihrem Stühlchen.
Im Juni gibts nochmal einen Shooting-Tag. Und vielleicht bleibt dann ja auch das Wetter mal schön. Regen hatten wir ja jetzt genug.

so, about spring...

I don't know about you..but I could use some sunshine. Especially on the weekends. I have lots of weddings coming up, photoshoots, etc.


Not good.

The shot above was taken in March. With the Spinner. It seems like an eternity ago.
