Power III

with 2 comments

I’m pretty sure you all have realized by now it’s been too quiet around here. While I haven’t been shooting forever, I can still post some of my backlog, just to keep this blog at least going at a slow pace. Slow is better than nothing at all, right?

So, from the depths of my archive, another power plant. I’ll not bother about the technical stuff too much, as my selection isn’t really about the technical side, rather my favourite shots which include some sort of human side, or human traces, if you wish. My personal selection of pictures which gave me joy in one or the other way, and things I noticed along the way I found amusing, or beautiful, or human, or stunning.

90

with one comment

While digging through my archives I found these photos I took about two and a half years ago at my great uncle’s 90th birthday. I still like the series so I thought I’d put them up here. It was a lovely day with my extended family and some regional quirks.

IMG_1018blogYep, got caught.

IMG_1019blogMy great uncle is very fond of music and helped founding the first music school in the area. He also always was very involved in the local brass band. I don’t know about your area, but where I come from every village has their own brass band. So the local brass band dropped by for a birthday serenade. My great uncle discussing the set with the bandmaster.

IMG_1051blogMy great uncle believes in the importance of kids getting in contact with music, so he was very happy about all the kids in the brass band.

IMG_1057blogHaving done their duty, time for food, drinks and party. Typical brass band.

IMG_1058blogLeftovers.

IMG_1060blogI’m repeating myself – brass bands!

IMG_1065blogOne last speech (it was a very short one), and then food.

Lovely memories of meeting my extended family. And wishing my great uncle many more happy years to come.
