Spin around




I went out and about with the Spinner again. The last pic shows Mannheims castle, which happens to be the university now. Pretty, hm?

and the winner is...

Me.

Sort of.

Well I am in the top 10 with 2 shots out of several hundred shots by a photography contest held by the Lomographic Society and Das Telefonbuch.

This means the following:

a) I won a La Sardina special edition, which is awsome!
b) I won something. I never won something...at least not with my photography.
c) surprisingly those 2 shots I had never picked won, which taught me a lesson I am sure.

You can read the article here. It's german.

Those two shots won:

Jon Krakauer: Into the Wild

Into the WildInto the Wild by Jon Krakauer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I have seen the movie some years ago and really liked it. I found the book on a fleamarket and bought it for 1 Euro. So, I read it and I was really moved by it. Some passages I could have done without, such as the ones the author wrote about himself or some other men who went into the wild, because they didn't really illustrate Christopher McCandless' story. They only said that it happened before in similar ways. We won't always know exactly what happened to McCandless but what the author writes about is really catching and moving. So I can recommend both, book and movie.

Nick Hornby: A long way down

A Long Way DownA Long Way Down by Nick Hornby
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First attempted to read this on the flight to Madrid in November. Unlucky choice I guess. Because now I really loved it. It's witty, clever, funny, sad sometimes. I really like it and it might be my favorite of his novels so far.

Wedding: Marko und Daniela





Perfect weather at the perfect location. The photos have turned out wonderful if you ask me and the ceremony at church reflected their love for each other. Thank you for letting me share this moment with you.


Wir hatten perfektes Wetter um traumhafte Fotos am Mannheimer Wasserturm zu schießen. Auch anschließend in der Kirche war due Stimmung ganz wunderbar. Danke an Marko und Daniela.

Wedding amongst flowers





We had lots of sunshine...actually...it was almost too hot, but we had a wonderful time together and I think the photos reflect that.

Wir hatten einen Tag voller Sonnenschein erwischt (bei diesem Sommer ist es ja nie so sicher, wie das Wetter so wird) und ich denke, uns sind  zauberhafte Fotos gelungen. Vielen Dank nochmal euch beiden.
