Good day dear reader, thank you for being here, for coming back and following my blog. How are you today?
I feel humbled by the beautiful feedback and comments I am getting. Thank you so much! Since I also receive so wonderful words about my photography, I thought to take you behind the camera. Maybe it is a cliché, but for me it is true: I am rarely in front of the camera, and I do prefer to be behind it.
Sometimes, though, my husband succeeds in taking a shot whilst I am taking pictures or I took one where I also appear. From time to time, I even ask for it being taken, because it needed to be on camera :0).
Small things and flowers are definitely something I am drawn to. This then may look like this:
My camera is as often in my hands as possible. The first two of the following pictures are from a few years back when I was still using a Minolta taking pictures on film. Can you believe it? The last one is with my today’s baby, the DSLR Nikon.
Often I go down low…
And even more so, I go up…
Some fun ones. Kangaroos came so close where we pitched tent in the Kosciuszko National Park in Australia that we needed proof of the happening ;0). And while preparing a cup of coffee after climbing Big Daddy in Sossuslvei/Namibia, the idea with the kettle came to my mind.
Shadows are a very easy way to have me in the picture. If it is along the ocean, it is even better of course, because it means sandy feet!
I get to relax, too. Many of my photos I take while travelling, driving long distances on huge continents, hiking up mountains and/or spending time in hot climates.
I hope you enjoyed to see me behind the camera.
Have a good one and see you soon!
