Neues Objektiv. Direkt ausprobiert. Leider erst einmal nur im Mikrokosmos.
I don’t like to shoot pictures of people I don’t know, which has to do with their privacy… But during a walk through Brussels I had to take this picture because everything seemed just so right about it.
(Yes, the post existed already, but it was a lovely couple and I was visiting Brussels… So it might as well be an entry for the weekly travel theme.)
I tried to capture the seagulls, which wasn’t easy at all and I couldn’t focuse good enough with my Powershot – but they work even better in front of the riverside architecture of York, England.
I try not to take pictures against the light because seldom something good comes out of it – aside from Silhouettes that is. And Silhouettes of people and buildings are not my cup of tea: I do not only want to see their shape, but the life and colour of them as well.
Founded in 1132, Fountains Abbey began to decay after Henry VIII made himself Head of the Church in England and gave his approval to plunder cloisters and abbeys – he needed their money after all.
