Ten years ago, in 2003, we were living in Bremen, which is in Northern Germany. I was working as a systems and network administrator in a medical IT company, and Mitchie was taking German classes at the local VHS (which is the abbreviation for something like “peoples’ high school”).
During the last days of the previous year, I had bought our first digital camera, an Olympus C-300Z:
I took this image in 2012 with the E-PL1, and wrote about it here. All of the following shots were made either by Mitchie or by me, using that C-300Z.
On the last day of 2002, we took this photo of our neighbourhood from our sleeping room in Bremen:
Bremen has some history and nice old and new buildings, like for instance the Universum Science Center, which was on my way to work, just behind “Bürgerpark”. In the background, you can see the “drop tower”:
We drove around a lot in 2003. We visited a friend who had taken over my former flat in Siegburg, and there we took a photo of the abbey on Michelsberg:
Or we went to the races, like the yearly “Fischereihafenrennen” in Bremerhaven, where I tried my first panning shot:
We also drove around to places like Goslar or Höxter – in Goslar for instance, we saw a place where Goethe used to stay:
But one of the nicest things about my work in Bremen was that almost each year, I was sent to Linuxtag, which used to be in Karlsruhe during that time:
On our way back from Linuxtag:
I was also trying out other motorbikes, like this nice Suzuki SV 650S at Villa Löwenherz (“villa lionheart”):
2003 was a good year. And tho our camera wasn’t much compared to what we have today, it was still great to have it, so we were able to keep all these memories…
Thanks for viewing.
