It’s been quite a while since I published any of my own photographs here, although I must admit that I haven’t been out and about with a camera recently and these are all taken with my smart phone. It’s amazing what you can find when just wandering about with a few hours to spare, waiting for someone else, or for an appointment, or just getting a little fresh air on a glorious early summer’s day.
Viktoria Michaelis: Samsung S4 – Nienburg / Weser, Germany
I’ve shot quite a few photographs in Nienburg, but this little scene is one that I’s missed out on. It was really just a spur of the moment photograph, taken with my smart phone to see what the quality is like more than anything else. I prefer taking photographs in back streets, away from the mass of people and the usual scenes everyone and their dog seems to capture, there is less to distract and often what you find hidden away id just as interesting, just as beautiful as anything on the main street.
Another advantage of wandering is that you find things which are so well hidden, no one else is likely to come across them at all, although I must admit I would probably have gotten into trouble if someone had seen me, since this train is parked on private ground, and I really shouldn’t have been there.
Viktoria Michaelis: Samsung S4 – Hoya / Weser, Germany
The front is covered in dust, that isn’t the natural color of the machine at all, and I am hard put to imagine anything like this, despite what it says on the side, traveling at high speeds. A working engine, perhaps waiting to go into a museum, or for restoration? Who knows.
Viktoria Michaelis: Samsung S4 – Bremen, Germany
Now and then something amusing catches my eye too, although I could have simply taken this because of the reflections. Look carefully and you will see that both arms are down by the model’s sides. The parasol has been stuck down the front of her dress, which would work better if it were a super-size model with a bit more in the way of bosom!
Love & Kisses, Viki.
