With great sadness I read that Ara Güler died. In case you don’t know who he was, here are the German and English Wikipedia pages about him. And here’s a documentation in German which German TV made last year and broadcasted this year: Thank you Ara. Rest in piece.
Yesterday I took a picture in the atrium. I had set the camera to square format, and later at home I used both Olympus Viewer 3 (to make a slightly desaturated .tif), and Nik Color Efex Pro to simulate Fuji Astia slide film. I called the result “Nature wins”, and it looks like this: What […]
I was more than impressed by Ted Forbes’ interview with Laura Wilson: See also here, about one of her books: If you want to know more about her, see Wikipedia, or her own web page. I think she’s absolutely worth your attention, and she definitely has mine.
Today I took photos of four colleagues at work. I offered to make photos “on white”, since you can easily use them everywhere in the web, in presentations, even in the company’s countless online services. And one of the colleagues who helped me, Gunther, also took my photo: Wolfgang, Frankfurt 2018 Thanks for viewing.

As regular readers of this blog will know, I’m mostly using digital cameras in the ‘Micro Four Thirds’ format – which is exactly the same as ‘Four Thirds’, except that those ‘Micro’ cameras lost the mirror, so they’re more modern incarnations than their older DSLR brethren. The format of both systems’ sensors is 13×17.3mm, which […]
It’s the time for lots of ‘best of’ lists and shows. See for instance the Top 25 Photos on Flickr in 2017 From Around The World if you like, there are some good ones in it for sure. But what I liked even more is this small collection: Why take photos? Because it’s a declaration […]
