Catching Light

Catching Light

Even when it’s very cold outside the sun casts this wonderful warm light in the late afternoon.
When I came across this scene I was reminded of what photography really is about: catching light…

Some of you have seen her already in this blog (click).
This time in color and with a slightly different hair-do.
Have a great weekend!

Winding Tree

Winding Tree

It was one of those “Hitchcock Moments”.
The birds you see on top (and on the other trees nearby) made a lot of noise – in fact, they reminded me of the movie “The Birds”.
Good thing they drew my attention to this beautiful tree.
Trees are always excellent subjects in any season – I love them.

The Mourner

The Mourner

Camera: Polaroid SX-70
Medium: TZ Artistic film (expiration date 09/09).

The colors have not been changed – no post-processing here.
When I scan Polaroid pictures I give my best to keep colors/tones as close to the original as possible (the original still looks better IMHO – there is nothing better than “the real thing”).

With this film temperature influences the outcome. I could have put the picture inside my jacket during the development phase, but I wanted to have the cold atmosphere in the shot, since the photo shows a war memorial…
