group exhibitionism

double yay! my picture ‘wiwiwinterland’ was chosen to be part of the anniversary exhibition “ein tag in berlin – 30 jahre danach” in the venerable fotogalerie friedrichshain!

i feel very (very!) honoured to be part of this exibition with all these great photographers  and i am really looking forward to it.

the vernissage will take place on thursday, 3rd of august, 19:00 h at helsingforser platz 1 in berlin friedrichshain. kitty solaris will even play some songs.

here’s the full announcement on the fotogalerie’s webpage.  there’s of course also a facebook event :)

and here’s my picture again – i think it fits the part of the description in the announcement where it says: “[…] and unique snapshots of everyday life in berlin”

five legs on ice

skating awaythe frozen rummelsburger bucht. this was last saturday. today we have quite comfortable 12°C here. is winter done already?

skating away on the thin ice of the new day…

we had quite low temperatures in berlin recently. for more than three weeks we had around -12°C. river spree was just full of ice cakes but in rummelsburger bucht,  a dead arm of the spree, it was safe to step on the ice. the area is about 350 meters wide and 1.5 km long so one can take a nice walk where one normally does not. including a walk around ships  or straight to an island…

traces again

some of the pictures have been taken with the tiny panasonic 14mm pancake lens which i got for a really good price from ebay (uk) recently. i am quite happy with this little lens. it’s not really comparable with the 20mm in terms of in-your-face-sharpness and obviously not as handy when it comes to lowish light but the wide angle makes up for this in some situations and the autofocus on my e-pl1 is indeed a bit faster than the 20mm but not as much as i had hoped from other reviews.
