a silhouette of the workers' boat on the river against the light of the setting sun

at 7pm the workers are going back to the bridge construction site to tow the construction cranes away for the night.

i can't understand why i like this photo. it bothers me.

bear box

today i've read the strobist's post about food photography made easy. in fact for quite some time already i wanted to build another light box he wrote about here, but there was always some reason not to (either i didn't have the right box, or the paper, or time :)

so today luckily there was a box lying on my couch and i didn't stop to think whether it's large enough or not. as a result i spent half an afternoon constructing this thing and then playing with it. no photos that i particularly like came out of it, but it was a lot of fun.

here is a picture of one of my bears. i had in fact two light sources here: one was the light of the setting sun filtering through a large window to the right from the camera, and another a small work light to the left from the camera.

and here is a picture of the resulting "box" itself. well, it doesn't look like the box here :) 'cause it's really just three connected walls.

i'm looking forward to playing with it again.

i have a feeling i'm posting too many poppies' pictures. but i can't resist their colors.

if the kids are united

what does the second half say? "they are never divided"? "they will never be divided?"

bike, bridge, and sun

a bicycle on the background of Nordbr├╝cke in Bonn

A surprising outcome is that even though i felt dead tired after all the biking today, my legs are not in fact trying to kill me now.
