Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes…

I decided to change some things and use this space differently than I used to. Originally I had set up this blog mainly for my photography. Over the last years my (creative) focus shifted and expanded, so I stopped posting regularly on here, as in my head this place was only about photography.

Lately I got rid of some of my social media accounts, generally decreased the time I’m spending on social media, and thought about how I wanted to use my time online. The thought of having my own place where I share my thoughts and things I work on/spend my time with started to feel right and I realized I already have the space, I just had stopped using it.

Strangely enough end of summer always feels like a time of new beginnings for me, so why not start changing on here too, and make it a new beginning of some sorts.

I don’t really have a concept for this place yet, I just know I want to use it for different things I’m interested in, and have a wider definition for myself of the things that can go on here. There will still be images, and I have a feeling there will be more words than there used to be. So, let’s see where this goes…

First evening at the beach in Norderney. Tail of a kite – lots of people fly their kites everywhere on the beach.

Highest “mountain” on the island – ever seen a mountain where the cross on the summit is higher than the actual mountain?! 🙂

We had planned a day at the beach, but a thunderstorm came rolling in, just as we had rented our wicker beach chair. So what do you do? We decided to sit it out in our comfy beach chair.

Minutes before the rain started washing down.

IMG_1275

Most people had fled the beach, so we were surrounded by deserted beach chairs.

IMG_1276

Only two of our neighbours had stayed.

20 minutes later everything was over and the sun reappeared.

Best investment ever – our beach chair!

Last Days of Summer

A few weeks back in time – it was still warm enough to spend our weekends on the Donauinsel (Danube Island). Obviously more fun when you’ve got smartphones and iPads to play with! 😉

OMG!

It’s just about the light…

Time to celebrate!

It was not me who took this one, obviously!

Watching Eric “The Eel” Moussambani on youtube…

More youtube-ing I guess…

Ferrarista.

Good times…
