Yes, I know, it sounds like a cheap excuse… …but I need photos of nude women for a photo-painting-exhibition of me and my russian painter friend Alexeij.
Thanks to my female co-worker Aleksandra we started and finished the photo shoot very, very spontaneously. For both of us it was the first nude session… …and it was fun.. ..a lot.
Frankly spoken it was just a test how to work with lights… …but frankly spoken… …wow… …thanks, dear Aleksandra… ….you look great… …and yes, let’s do more! 🙂
🙂 …of course they did not stare at me… …but I kindly asked if I could take a portrait of them…. …and they mostly agreed. I didn’t know these people in person… …but I know Aleksei Jogolev (#05) and this event was the opening of the exhibition of his paintings in Tver/Russia. Excellent paintings… …and excellent people.
Do you know what will happen when a photografer and an manifold gifted actress like Lena will collide head-on at full speed ??? …point blank… …and both love music…
THIS WILL HAPPEN:
SINGLE COVERS !

We use to call that time between christmas and new year “between the years”. I do love this term. Because it seems that that you got some extra time beyond the usually counting of time.
A time where you can reflect, review. Think about this great moments, all the shit that happend… …and all the diamonts you found in the everyday life.
So, earth keeps on turning around… …a new year will start… …let’s rock it!
god bless you.. ..and may we find all the new diamonts in our everyday life.
Lena Fomina, actress in Tver/Russia
What would you do if you got the chance to do a photo shoot with an actress? Would you make up a story? Reenact scenes?
Or would you dare to tell the most exciting and intimate story? – So we did!
THIS IS THE LENA STORY.
Lena, thank you so much for your smiles and your sadness, for the play and the truth, for the distance and the nearness… …and of course for just beeing Lena.
Лена, большое спасибо за твои улыбки и твою грусть, за игру и правду, за расстояние и близость … … и, конечно, за то, что ты просто была Леной.

I love backyards. I love their roughness. Their nativeness.
The silence they want to share with you… …the stories they want to tell…
…and that very stage they offer you.

You’re like an angel on my chest
Remember all the movies, Terry
We’d go see
Trying to learn to walk like the heroes
We thought we had to be”

Oyster farming in Cancale / Brittany
From it’s small spat’s size to its harvest, a Cancale oyster needs minimum 3 years of work in the bay of Le Mont Saint Michel.
Many handelings are necessary to grow an oyster lapped by the fastest tides in Europe. At low tide part of the vast oyster beds can visited.
Cancale calls himself the “oyster capital” of Brittany. Oysters are bred here in the intertidal zone, namely the Pacific Oyster (5,000 t, as of: 2000) and the rarer European Oyster (1,000 t, as of: 2000). Both varieties enjoy a good reputation among connoisseurs.

Reinhold Staden is a true catcher of the ray. I’m fascinated by his work and it was a great pleasure to follow him in his world of landscape photography. Besides the above mentioned skills, I was impressed how Reinhold use his ability to dive into his imagination to combine his technique, endurance and claim for quality.
In this post you’ll find some impression of Reinholds field of work in the beautiful Ammerland/Lower Saxonia/Germany. A man at work.
Is there a common sense of nearness? …I mean my chosen topic was ‘narrowness’. Is there a common feeling which differs between that? Or does it make sense to find the answer in the given diversity of that what we find around us?
