Woman finds her phone more interesting than her surroungings

Whenever I am in Amsterdam, I am amazed at how many bikes you see. It is virtually impossible to look anywhere without seeing a bicycle. In this particular shot, I like how the bike looks like it belongs to her, but something on her phone is more interesting, so she took a rest.

I am not so pleased with the light reflection in her face, but I left it, as a reminder to not fail like that again – and also I suck at photoshop.

Oktoberfest subway scene

I’m not a man of vivid words, so I make this one quick. Oktoberfest is happening every year in the last two weeks of September. People get drunk on beer with more than average alcohol in it and the only subway station directly connected to the Theresienwiese becomes so overcrowded, it needs crowd control. In this particular photo you can see a scene later the evening close to 11pm (closing time of the beer halls). I talked to the woman afterwards, this guy was trying to get her number while her duty was, to get the doors clear for the driver to close them.

Belgrade at night, let’s talk about some things

I took this photo from the hotel I stayed in in the center of Belgrade. I just love how old these concrete block houses look, although they don’t on purpose. This is a photo, that on the first look, looks just fine. But again, I am bothered by some technicalities here.

That bright blue window in the center

So what’s going on here? I have tried to find out what that blue window is about, but on all the photos I took, I didn’t quite see anything. You can see some blue tint in other windoes as well, somaybe I shot it in the second something blue was on TV. But really, damn, it’s drawing your eye. Must. stop. looking. at. this. blue. spot.

Long exposure of Siegestor, Munich

I made this when I got my first fixed focal length lens, the Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm 1:1,8G. Unfortunately I did not get a neutral density filter yet, so to not over-exposure for longer exposures I had to shoot in a not so optimal aperture range. I would have liked the background to blur a bit.
