POINT BLANK: FISHING

“I wish I was a fisherman, tumblin’ on the seas
Far away from dry land, and its bitter memories…

…with light in my head, you in my arms, woo”

My introduction of Markus Mehring’s photography blog.

5 months ago I saw the blog of Markus for the first time. I was impressed. And I came closer.

At that point in time I didn’t know that he is a traveller who likes to sit on the window seat of an airplane to watch the scenery, that he hates arrogance and intolerance, that friendship is a very precious gift and value to him and that his name read backwards in a Russian dialect means ” the one who loves images”.

The last fact was obvious to me. Just look at these!

His photographs remind me of the great days of film cameras, the geniuses of black and white photography and the careful selection and capture of precious moments.

I was “tuned in” from the first minute (view) and I think that he is a great talent in any kind of photography. Street, portrait, architecture and stills. (more…)


POINT BLANK: BANYA (RUSSIAN SAUNA)

I love the way how russian care about their health. To emphasize that I just want to say one word: Russian Sauna!

POINT BLANK: ESCALATORS

Escalators got something ambivalent, depending on the point of view. From the outside they just carrying people. For the people who get carried, they provide a few seconds of rest, thoughts and reflection.
