A tradition, is the annual ‚JapanTag‘ in Düsseldorf.
This year I had not only another ‚partner in photographing‘, I also wanted to try to photograph a bit different.
In an audience of 10.000’s of people (!) it is easy to sneak and make a photo from someone in a not so flattering situation. One can call it street.
I was guilty, to it, the past years, and this year my challenge was to photograph different.
I took my ‚270 Zoom with me, but before we went ’shooting‘ I changed to the Sigma 17 -70mm
Also, no ‚invisible shooting‘, but photos nearby, with more interaction, No close ups.
When they smile in the camera
With so many people, it was easy to ‚hike‘ with other photographers. When the people not smiles directly at the camera
And of course, it should not be me, if there were not photos that were in contradiction with what I wrote above 🙂
A wonderful day with Sonja, thank you, dear Sonja, for joining me, the fun and all!
My photos can also be found at my personal photo site (–> click here <—)
Düsseldorf is the capital city of the region NRW (Nordrhein-Westfahlen), in Germany.
It is also the residence from the local government, Der Landtag.
The modern building in what the politicians decide about what happens in our area, is named Landtag.
Today we went inside
History and Art
Close to the Medienhafen,
in a wonderful area at the Rhine. Lots of things to see and photograph!
And my probably most favorite photo album, ‚da mix‘ 🙂
A wonderful morning with a great photographer and friend as company. Not bad for a Saturday!
On the first day of summer …. I made a very small bicycle trip to a very wonderful location.
Langen Foundation near Neuss, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany is a museum designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando. The foundation showcases a collection of Oriental Art and Modern Art. It is located on the grounds of the Museum Insel Hombroich.
It is Spring, finally!!!
It was my first bicycle trip after 15 years, and I did not trust to bring my big camera(s) with me. So, I took the photos with the good old powershot. Enjoy!
