Last week was Thanksgiving. I remember last year. Cagil and I went to the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade. Very early, very cold. I didn't know that there is not much more going on than clowns and big balloons. At the end it turned out to be fun, but this year it even rained all morning so I simply stayed at home. These photographs are from 2005. I like clowns as long as they don't try to be funny.

Empire State Building

I was getting a picture ready for printing for someone in Germany when I browsed through some other pictures I took back at that day. I looked at this one for a while and found it actually not that bad. Here it is.

Two Pictures of...

...last week's show.
I chose the opposite position from all other photographers. First of all, I wanted to have them with their cameras as an element in the pictures. Second, I thought that their flash lights might bring some nice light effects. It turned out okay. Here are two examples.

Oops!...I Shot a Fashion Catalogue

I've just received the look book for Donna Loren's fall/winter collection. It's all the pictures I took on the Brooklyn Bridge. I cannot believe they put the picture with the cops in there, too *lol*

I won't scan all the pages, but everything I posted about it is still here:

Customer Experience

Today, one of my customers (Carol) wants to share with you what she experienced when looking at one of my pictures exhibited in a church:

I think I need to share the reason I wanted to buy the picture in the first place. I was walking down the hallway in church where your beautiful picture was displayed. When I passed the picture, I stopped dead in my tracked and my mouth fall open. You see, at first, I did not see the messy sheep. I saw a close-up of the face of Christ. The hay in the sheep's face were the crown of thorns on His head. Simultaneously, I could hear the words in my head, "Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world" from John 1:29.It was one of those moments that leaves you breathless. After such an experience, I knew I had to have the picture. It will always be very special to me. Thank you so much.

Fashion Shoot Opportunity Tomorrow

Hey photographers!
Here is a good chance to do some fashion like shooting. It takes place at Katra in New York from 9-10pm and I'm pretty sure it's gonna be fun. I heard there are also some of my pictures on display...I'm feeling honored.

More of those Pictures

Here is a little Halloween add-on. First I wanted to call it "Feminine Halloween", but then I noticed that this rhyme only works in German language :-)

Gallery Window

Finally I got a picture of the gallery window in Limburg. I think they have seven or eight pictures now. What you see here are four of them. Interestingly three of them are not on my page yet...the Chicago series is definitely overdue.

Even the birds don't know what's going on

What's going on with the weather these days? It's fooling everybody pretending it's spring.

Magic Moments

Unfortunately it came out of my camera very blurry, so I oversharpened it.

First Halloween Series

Here is the first series of Halloween shots. Don't ask me why, but I somehow tend to categorize pictures all the time. As you can see, these are all male. And I promise to show pictures of females very soon. Actually, some of them I'm not sure if they are really female, which makes it hard to categorize them :-)
I'm a bit excited about this Halloween stuff. It's such a good shooting opportunity and I put some efforts in it. I think it turned out well.

Exhibition Page

I'm a bit lazy when it comes to printing and framing, but I believe that exhibiting will become a part of my little hobby. From now on you will find a link to an exhibition overview on the (now more organized looking) sidebar of this blog.

Gadgets, Gossip and More

RealNewYorkersKnow.com used one of my old pictures for a story about Halloween. It's actually interesting to read. Here is a link.

You are moving to New York?

Well, then let me introduce your new neighbors to you:

Doesn't it look like a montage? I shot it with a 85mm lens from far away.

Exhibition and Sale in Germany

For those who were thinking about buying one of my pictures, you have the chance to do this now. Starting today I have an exhibition in Limburg, Germany. The name of the gallery is "Galerie auf der Treppe" which means "Gallery on the stairs" and is located in the (very) old part of the city, which has a lot of historical sights and is a hotspot for tourists. Right now you can find five pictures there and it's going to be at least two more. Special thanks goes to my father who came up with the idea and worked with me on this.

The latest news are:
The pictures were in the shopping windows starting this morning and in the evening they were sold out. A person came in and simply bought them all. He agreed to wait with picking them up until new prints are ready, so the shopping windows won't be empty. I'm flattered!
Could someone take a picture of the windows for this BLOG? That would be great.
