I prefer photographing ...By Elisa | On 26. April 2016 take an adVANture · On April 26, 2016
... photography - a passion of which, frankly, I have absolutely no idea. I have some books explaining the basics. And I even looked through these books. A while ago. Short times. Somehow, I always lack time. Which actually means: Somehow I never take the time. I love to take pictures and want to get more out of the pictures and motives. But it will be. With every trip, with every photo I have the feeling that things are getting better. Exercise is just the master (5 € in the pig phrases) and I look forward to every trip, when I have the time back home and go through all the photos.
MOST LOVELY PHOTOGRAPH I WOODEN LEGS.
One motif has emerged in recent years: wooden walkways . Quite banal, but I'm fond of the symmetry of the bars, the contrast of wood and water, the focus on the middle (stupid pun, but somehow I can not think of anything better to describe it). Actually, I always wanted to put the focus of a series of pictures on the streets . Or on the doors of this world. But then, quietly and secretly, one motive crept in. Quietly, without much fanfare.
WOODWAYS IN GERMANY.
If you do not already spend your time in the Alps, at least with a view to it. At Chiemsee , I spent some nice days and made the search for 10 things that can be done at Lake Chiemsee.
The Ammersee is not far away from my apartment. Especially in the summer I like to go there, enjoy the weather and drink at the beach bar by the restaurant Fischer a delicious cold drink. That's life!
Last year I spent the extended sojourn weekend with friends at Camping am Forggensee . We had a great time, with mulled wine warm on the grill, with beautiful walks and inspiring conversations. Unfortunately it rained almost all the time and it was partly bitter cold. About our cars we had a big blueprint strained, so we have created a cozy robber cave and could brim wind and weather. The alcohol then did the rest.
WOODWAYS IN CROATIA.
The roadtrip through Croatia was themed: the search for the sun. Again we had to fight with rain and cold. He and I spent a short sunny day in the Krka National Park , beautiful views and small walks have sweetened our day. As the rest of the trip looked, I have a small series of pictures entitled " In 25 pictures through Croatia. A road trip. "Arrested. A series focusing on photography and storytelling.
WOODWAYS IN MEXICO.
Some time ago I was traveling with my backpack in Mexico for 3 weeks with 4 lovely girls. We slept in hammocks, I lost in the underground of Mexico City, we looked at the most different pyramids and had a great time. I do not want to miss this trip and actually there is so much I want to tell you about it. We had spent a nice day on the Isla Mujeres , where the photos were taken.
WOODWAYS IN AUSTRIA.
My favorite short trip - the Achensee . Already a few times I spent my time at the Achensee. And enjoyed the view there. Mostly as a stopover to the Hintertuxer glacier , where I still indulge in summery temperatures of my passion, snowboarding. Also located on the lake on the eastern shore my favorite campsite , the campsite Schwarzenau .
WOODWAYS IN RUSSIA.
On Kizhi Island on Lake Onega in Russia there are some beautiful and quiet places where you can fully enjoy the light and nature. During a kind of river cruise he and I had the time to explore the island. The official highlight is the huge wooden church, unofficial highlight are these moments.
WOODWAYS IN THE USA.
Earlier this year, I started looking for the best activities and best restaurants in the Florida Keys . And discovered the 2 beautiful wooden walkways. If you are interested in the journey and tips then follow the link to JUST travelous , where I tell you all about my highlights.
A pretty self-important post, as far as the photos are concerned. But I could sit for hours at the end of the footbridges, could forever dangle my feet in the water or in the air and just look forward to the view and the life. For me, the motif somehow symbolizes nature and outdoor time outdoors. Imagine this situation: You are away from any civilization. The setting sun reflects golden yellow in the lake in front of you, the temperatures are still pleasantly warm. Small water mosquitoes dance in the evening sun over the water, right and left chirping crickets in the reeds. The old boardwalk creaks among you with every movement and next to you sits your favorite human ....
