As you can probably tell by these images, I'm not in Germany anymore. My big trip (around the world) has started. There are new places I'm planning to visit, but for now I'm enjoying my old stomping grounds in New Jersey and New York. Visiting here is always quite emotional to me as I have lived here for so long and had such an amazing time. Luckily I still have friends here who always welcome me almost like a family member.
One spontaneous idea I had on a rainy morning was to photograph Coney Island in the rain. By the time I got there however, the sun was shining. Because people were not very busy, I decided to take some portraits.
“So can you understand?
Why I want a daughter while I'm still young
I wanna hold her hand
And show her some beauty
Before all this damage is done”
Of course these strong lines are not mine. That’s Arcade Fire.
This one is from New York.
Today is the 6th anniversary of this photo blog! Wow..time flies! If you are curious about the early days, I wrote a little about it in last year’s post.
I was wondering what I could prepare in the spirit of the celebrations, and came up with the idea of free iPads for all my readers!! Then I changed my mind and decided to give away free iPad wallpapers instead…how about that?
Here they are. Optimized for the 3rd gen iPad we are looking at pictures from
- White Sands, New Mexico
- The Tall Grass Prairie, Oklahoma
- Blankenberge, Belgium
- Iceland – god knows where exactly that was..
- New York City (twice)
