If you’re really into photography, then after a while you’ll start seeing pictures everywhere. Like in the magazines, catalogues, the online world, even in TV. And sometimes in real life of course. If that hasn’t happened to you (yet), don’t try to force it – you’ll get there.
There are some incredibly good photographers out there, even in the business of moving pictures. Films, TV series, ads – everywhere. But for the makers of TV programs it’s quite hard – the native wide screen 16:9 format for instance isn’t really an ideal one for portraits. Still I see photos all the time, and sometimes I quite like them. Like this:

At work, some of my colleagues ordered the new Lenovo X1 Carbon ultrathin notebook as their new work machines for the next years. It’s quite nice, and lighter than a 13.3″ MacBook Pro. When they were setting those up today, I just came around the corner with my camera in my hands, and took this one:

I had to wait for a short moment until Gunther’s hand was in front of Arno’s machine again to catch that behind-the-scene feeling of our workplace.
Nice machines, especially if you’re a mobile worker. I’ll wait for the bigger (and much heavier) Thinkpad W541 because I’m running virtual machines on top of my Linux OS (yes, also at work).
Oh by the way – I’m just leaving the IBM club again, which I joined only because I wanted to be a member of the photo club. Why? Well I guess we’re not that compatible anymore. I just wanna go and find my own way and style. Plus I’m not really into “skin work“. Oh, I’ve done my share of it, even on myself, and later almost perfected it, but I don’t want to create false stuff. Not my world.
Thanks for reading.
