Yesterday I was up early to finish packing and then I was off to Düsseldorf to catch a train back to Berlin. Already at the station I noticed this extremely cute little girl, who was playing with a straw hat and some sunglasses, but I was too busy with my luggage to take a picture. However, on the train she and her mother gladly posed for me and I’m really extremely happy with the outcome! I played around with the format for a while until I decided that a square format would probably be best, since else there would have been a lot of dead space in the picture.

The journey was quite relaxed actually. I watched two Hitchcock movies and amused fellow travellers by getting startled during Psycho. Well, watching scary movies in public is a stupid idea, I know, but at least it was funny. Now I’m back home and it’s so nice that nobody is slamming any doors at 7am in the morning!

  4. A beautiful photograph. I like the way you fill the frame with the subject. I also like the tones. Your b&w photos are a tiny bit reminiscent of 1950’s analogue photographs. “Meaty” is the word I use for that quality. I see it in the work of street photographers frequently. Cornelia Lohs comes to mind; she’s from Berlin. I am going to enjoy this blog. I like your perspective. George

    • Thank you George. With the black and white photographs I really am inspired by older photographs. It’s amazing what photographers could do back in the day, before there even was photoshop or any of the fancy cameras that are around now. That’s also why I bought a fully manual Zorki 3C from the 50’s recently. Digital photography is great and it opened up photography to everyone, since it’s very cheap and cameras don’t have such a steep learning curve anymore. However, it still can’t beat the old processes in atmosphere.

  5. Aw!
    I think what I like the most about this ‘pose’ is that it doesn’t feel ‘posed’ at all!
