POINT BLANK: VISTA

Sometimes it’s more exciting to look at things by looking through something which is cover up the true object.

POINT BLANK: DANCE ME TO THE END OF LOVE

“Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love ”

(Leonard Cohen, ‘Dance me to the end of Love’ )

POINT BLANK: TRAIN WINDOW

“I lie down on many a station platform; I stand before many a soup kitchen; I squat on many a bench;–then at last the landscape becomes disturbing, mysterious, and familiar. It glides past the western windows with its villages, their thatched roofs like caps, pulled over the white-washed, half-timbered houses, its corn-fields, gleaming like mother-of-pearl in the slanting light, its orchards, its barns and old lime trees.”

Erich Maria Remarque

 

POINT BLANK: LOOK AT THAT

..do you know that? Following some occasions just by chance to capture landscapes, architecture, abstract motives…  …that’s fine and that’s fun…  …maybe with some great results.

…and then you get reminded by a photo series here on WP about that, what you really want to do. To study people! To look at their behaviors. About their natural conduct. – After Andrea’s post BETRACHTUNGEN I was so inspired to search exactly for that.

Thank you for your inspiration!

POINT BLANK: EVENING MOODS

I do love the calm of an evening when time stands still and I can just enjoy and breathe. Wish all of us many of those moments for this year.

…btw, do you see the chimney on the upper left side of ‘evening moods 02’? I grew up on that little hill in front of that chimney.  🙂

 

POINT BLANK: THE FIRST WOMAN IN SPACE & ME

Imagine one dream of you as a little boy would have been to become an astronaut (I wrote already about that life had a different plan with me). Imagine now you would get an autograph on a photo print concerning space you did, with a personal dedication of let’s say Neil Armstrong or Yuri Gagarin or….   …Valentina Tereshkova, THE FIRST WOMAN IN SPACE !!!

Wow, can’t believe it that it really happend to ME! A signed photo with a personal dedication from Valentina Tereshkova. We are all so proud that we decide to hang that signed image here in our russian office.

During the preparation of my photoexhibition here in Russia our friend Julia (thanks btw) was in contact to Tereshkova. So we tried to invite her to the grand opening, but it was not possible that she could join. But next time.
