Im Holz. 1

DSC01597-kA contribution for Magic Letters: I. The challenge is to photograph Innen which means ‘the inside’ but also carries a connotation of ‘inward’ or even ‘subjectivity’. Im Holz would be ‘in the wood’ in English – which could also have been a title I liked – and part one features two older fruit tree fractures. Life goes on here.

A Walk in the Forest

holz-04While I’d had in mind to post these pictures in my own ‘elements‘ gallery – demonstrating that I am more at home with wood than with glass – I realized that today’s pictures also show what we saw on our walk in the nearby Stadtwald (“city forest”). So I decided to share these in the context of Jo’s Monday Walks. And so everybody can see where we were, I included the bottom picture.

[Although I am not into tech talk, I would have been grateful for this kind of information when I was trying to make up my mind about using Sony’s Alpha 6000 camera with Nikon AIS lenses – so here we go: The first picture was made with aforementioned camera and a Nikkor 85/2 AIS, the rest of them with my favourite lens, the Nikkor 28/2.8 AIS. They seem to quite work well with the camera. Though focusing manually can be a hassle  with the small EVF, it is also fun.]
