a fresh try


An early morning moment for the current weekly photo challenge “Fresh”. For me, there is always something special about the freshness of the day, when the rising sun is reflected in the dewdrops.

Here’s the stream of “Fresh” photos + the call: Fresh

And a “fresh” quote:

“I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning.”
– J.B. Priestley

lost in the details


this image is inspired by both the wordpress challenge “Lost in Details

it’s a city moment from Udaipur / India. when travelling there, i didn’t take the digital camera – now i wished i had, and had taken many many more pictures. here’s another one from there, a memory from Rajasthan that also comes with a 1000 details. 

and if you are interested in reading about being there, try this – the book that came from travelling there: Worlds Apart – 2 friends, 2 journeys, and 10 life lessons – a true story

the geometry of culture

a city reflection. this is from a recent trip to “Essen”, a city in the Ruhr Region, more moments from the trip, here – and scrolling through the post, i guess the first four images would work for “Geometry”, too: Comic Coal Metropolis, or: short trip photos from the Ruhr Region
