Graveyard Heuerßen

2

Mister Flinky and I - both afraid, but the sculpture made us go there.

I am afraid of graveyards. They are so mystique, full of memories and sadness, so many tears have been cried and, what makes me go there from time to time is, that they are often a place of art. Sculptures, stones, writing, flowers, architecture,… So I have to think what counts more, taking shots or not going there.

For the race I decided to go to the graveyard in Heuerßen, because there is a kind of guard standing directly next to the door, watching over all the graves. I must confess that I don’t know who is shown there, if it was a private grave or someone built up there to keep an eye, but I like sculptures.

Heuerßen is very, very small. Just a drive-through-place (if you don’t just pass it and leave it where it is). It has been a small farmers village till in the 1960th the expansion of big cities (Hanover) and people working there and living outside in the nature started a boom building houses there. It is directly near a forest and if you look at the landslide it is quite beautiful. The village itself was first mentioned in 1224, so it is quite old. The church Saint Jürgen has been built up in that time, too.
Mister Flinky liked the sculpture, but not being there.

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part One)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.

    Shooting Analogue with the New Petzval Lens

    The New Lomography Petzval Lens is, without a doubt, a striking innovation that has impressed analogue and digital shooters alike. The Petzval works seamlessly with both platforms, producing exceptional and oftentimes dreamy, bokeh-rich images. There are, however, photographers who prefer to shoot analogue and are oblivious to the lure of digital imagery. Here are a few photographers who have chosen film as their go-to medium, and and the Petzval as their ally.

    I made a short comparison between the "legendary" Kodak EIR Infrared film and the new LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400. Both pictures were made with the same camera-objective-combi: A Canon AE-1 Program with a 24mm wide-angle lens.

    My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.
