The Berlin Train I

F-BO 5290-29Frankfurt Bonames Airfield (top picture) was photographed in 2010. I remember driving out to the Airlift Memorial at Frankfurt Airport afterwards but having no desire to photograph the historic airplanes there… However, I did return to the Airlift Memorial in December 2012 to photograph airplanes there (bottom).

Now it just felt right to combine pictures from the two sessions – showing the tarmac and a part of the wing of a Douglas C-54. They are both about aviation, and the principles of abstraction appear quite similar. Are these two in tune?

Resolved

289-31290-22This week’s photo theme is “Resolved“, and Sara kindly suggested that the resolution might as well be about our photography: In 2013, I would like to make pictures that are quite abstract – because I just love playing with the pictorial space – yet tell of a story.

So here are pictures I made when I visited the Luftbrücke memorial near Frankfurt Airport. It is my story about a place that reminds us of a transatlantic story (and of a story that tells us how problems can be resolved).
