“Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.”
— Imogen Cunningham
That actually says it all.
But which photos do you choose when it comes to showing them publicly? Not easy. There are pictures of the people you love, with whom you share your life. Wonderful moments of memory. Valuable! – But only for those in front of and behind the camera. And then there are pictures that are technically well done, but look uninteresting to the viewer. And finally there are pictures that one thinks are worth looking at. Some of them I would like to show you here.
“Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.”
— Peter Adams
Sometimes I notice that I am much too much in love with technical photo stuff instead of focusing on the essential, namely the picture itself – but I’m working on that 🙂
“If you want to be a better photographer, stand in front of more interesting stuff.”

Once I saw a report on TV about the Photographer Wei Gensheng who has taken incredible pictures of Shanghei while working as a crane operator more than 2.000 feet above the city. I was really impressed by the shots. But I also realized that it’s not only the subject itself and the technique that counts, but also being in the right place at the right time.
Very few of my photos are taken because I wanted to capture exactly this motif in exactly this way, but because I happened to be there and had the camera with me. This is what makes my photos so unique for me. So I have decided to have the camera with me more and more often 🙂
In this sense, enjoy my pictures and if you like one, please let me know and leave a comment.
