Granada, an Andalusian Miracle

This time we made a trip to Granada, the beau­ti­ful old town in Andalus, Spain. As dur­ing sum­mer time tem­per­at­ures are quite high — around 40 °C, we choose March to start, as there tem­per­at­ure is still mod­er­ate — around 18 °C. All images were made with my work­horse Olym­pus OM‑D E‑M1 and the won­der­ful…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Granada, an Andalus­i­an Miracle

Sevilla, when it’s still cold at home — Part 6

Walk­ing through town, where it’s always worth mak­ing a pic­ture … or two. Same in the old World’s Fair area, where the EXPO ’92 was hos­ted and where so many nice spots were left behind. Con­trary to Lis­bon (EXPO ’98) in Seville no one seems to be proud of this area and what has been…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Sevilla, when it’s still cold at home — Part 6

Sevilla, when it’s still cold at home — Part 5

Real Alcaz­ar is one of the mir­acles of Span­ish his­tory, built for king Peter of Castile between 1350 and 1369.  It is the old­est roy­al palace in Europe still in use. After this long tour, we had some time to stroll around in town. As so many times before, I made two albums, one in…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Sevilla, when it’s still cold at home — Part 5

Sevilla, when it’s still cold at home — Part 4

Bull­fight­ing is still a cul­tur­al high­light in this part of spain — wheth­er you like it or not. The Placa de Tor­os is worth vis­it­ing nev­er­the­less — even out­side the sea­son. A won­der­ful span­ish mar­ket can be found at the Mer­cado de Tri­ana — its one of the old­est mar­kets in town opened 1823, built…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Sevilla, when it’s still cold at home — Part 4

The Met­ro­pol Para­sol was build in 2011 and con­struc­ted by the Ger­man archi­tect Jür­gen May­er. It is a wooden struc­ture, 150 x 70m wide and  up to 23 m high. On its top you can have a walk across. As so many times before, I made two albums, one in col­our and one in black…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Sevilla, when it’s still cold at home — Part 3

Calle Sierpes is a won­der­ful shop­ping lane in the old cen­ter of Sevilla. I found tons of beau­ti­ful sub­jects (bet­ter objects) which give an impres­sion of the ancient his­tory of this beau­ti­ful and amaz­ing town. As so many times before, I made two albums, one in col­our and one in black and white, as both…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Sevilla, when it’s still cold at home — Part 2

Hiking the Lerautal with a Canon A‑1 and a FD 1.4/50mm S.S.C. — Part II

As prom­ised in the first part of this Can­on A‑1 attempt, I have fin­ished the first roll of film — it’s again an Agfa Vista 200 — and it’s back from the lab, so it’s time to show some images. A couple of images were made dur­ing a hike in the Lerautal — a val­ley…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Hik­ing the Lerautal with a Can­on A‑1 and a FD 1.4/50mm S.S.C. — Part II

Olympus OM-4Ti and Ricoh GR II

After hav­ing back the Olym­pus OM-4Ti from repair, I took it on a short trip to Frank­furt. Equipped with a Zuiko Auto‑T 2.8/100mm and loaded with an Agfa Vista 200, I was keen to see, if the prob­lem has been cured at the OM-Dok­t­or in Ham­burg.   … and here the right lens.   We…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Olym­pus OM-4Ti and Ricoh GR II
