…and joy…

Dear Readers, the second scrimmage took place in Gernsheim against the "Gladiators", a team going into its first regular season, and this time the "Miners" had fun (and me too). in the beginning the "Miners" had some troubles covering the Receivers "Catches"   but then the Defense got better and better and even created some turnovers "Go Defense Go"   and the Offense delivered also "Go Offense Go"   in the end both teams learned a lot and had fun together "big huddle"   "Praise and Review" have...

…of misery…

Dear Readers, in the last 2 weeks I attended two more Scrimmages of the renamed "Mensfelden Miners" Football Team, and they couldn't have been more diverse... let's start with "misery" if you look it up in a dictionary you will get a description like "...a state or feeling of great physical or mental distress..." this is what I saw and felt watching the Miners go down against the "Black Goats" and this is what I wanted to show you with my pictures of that day The "Miners" often couldn't stop their opponent which resulted into a lot of lost yards or even touchdowns "Breakthrough"   this...

VLN Round 7 “Grüne Hölle” – Pit Walk and Starting Grid

Dear Readers, from 22nd to 24th September I attended a workshop and had the opportunity to get one of the restricted media access passes for Round 7 of the VLN Endurance Races at the Nürburgring. We started on Friday with a Pit Walk and the task to do a Photo-Story. Being the first time in a Pit, I was quite lost as it was crowded with spectators, crews, cars and (VIP) guests and most of it all I had not developped an idea what I wanted to tell with my pictures. So I started watching closely for something special to happen and warming up by taking random pictures. After a while "creativity...

Mustang’s 2nd Scrimmage

For me it was also a chance to work on my story telling as well as reading the game and trying to accomplish some self-imposed tasks. have fun Gregor "Limburg Mustangs" "Defense at work"   "Pass Defense"   "Running Game"   "Team Spirit"   "Sideline"

My First Exhibition

Dear Readers, encouraged by a friend I had the opportunity to participate in an exhibition of a local society promoting Arts and Culture. The topic is "Verzweigt" and artists of various fields show their interpretation of trees, leafs, forests and parks. I saw a lot of very good pictures, either painted or photographed and actually I must tell you that I am a little bit proud, because one of my pictures got mentioned by the local press the exhibition ends in November 2017 and you can see my pictures there or below ;-) I hope you like them, too Gregor "Engetsukyo-Bridge" "Douglas...

Limburg Mustangs vs. Hunsrück Protectors

Dear Readers, after a two years break the local American Football Team "Limburg Mustangs" was reunited some months ago. The first judging of their performance was a so called "Scrimmage" and they invited the "Hunsrück Protectors" for that Training Game. As I am interested in American Football for several years, now, I was eager to support them gaining more publicity. Actually they were looking for a photographer to get some Team Member Portraits and in-game Action shots. The Portraits were done during the training sessions shortly before the Scrimmage. I will add some to the Portrait...

Birds of Prey and Owls demonstration

Dear Readers, some days ago my wife and I visited the well known falconry at Castle Ronneburg. Accompanied by another Photographer (specialised in Birds of Prey Photography) and the two falconers of course, I wanted to do a little Birds-in-flight- as well as Portraiture-Photography... and we had a lot of fun :-)   Besides the swiftness and sometimes erratic movements of the Birds I had to struggle with the limited space. Usually the two falconers try to involve their audience by being very close to them so that everyone can see and sometimes even touch or pet the tamed...

Dear Readers,   I can't believe it... almost a year has passed since my last update... but I prepared a few blog posts and they will go online in short   Today I want to show you my latest pix of the Dog Racing - European Championships 2015   It was a tough experience to set up the autofocus correctly and get sharp pictures lying flat or kneeling behind a fence to get the best angle, I could not aim at the the hounds before they came around that corner and they are sooo fast...each turn I had only about one second   I selected a series of four...
