Oli’sÂ picture from today made me reminisce about all those beautiful nights by the ocean, so I dug out this shot from the same night in La Jolla, whichÂ was actually quite gloomy. Good times. I sure miss getting my feet wet.
I recently joined artflakes, a youngÂ online art platform that enables artists to sell high quality prints and other products of theirÂ work. On the other hand, if you’re interested in buying art work, they offer you a well organized database of fine art work for you to choose from. I created a little profile hereÂ yesterday and so far it all looks veryÂ goodÂ and pricing is also ok. They are based in Germany, but ship worldwide. The picture above is taken from their website and shows an example product. You will find more of my photos there soon. Hope you have some time to check it out.
Now something else, I stumbled upon this photo contest. Nothing huge, but the first prize is a 10 day road trip in Scotland and I would love to go to Scotland. So, if you like my pictures you can vote for them here.Â Click next to see 3 more of my pictures. You mightÂ have to put in some numbers first to verify you’re of legal drinking age and then it losesÂ the link to my picture. If you want to vote, put in the numbers and then click the link again, it should take you to the actual picture. Thanks for voting!
Oh, and I recently got the new iPhone and started using instagram which seems like a lot of fun. If you’re on instagram too follow me @shoepner.
I think that’s all I had to say. Hope you have a good weekend!
I’m usually pretty decisiveÂ regarding the questionÂ whether to put an imageÂ in black and white or keep it in color.Â But this one is actually giving me a hard time… The colors came out real shiny and I kinda felt bad getting rid of them. But then, the color version reminded me too much of a Windows desktop background image, so I tried black and white and I think that’s more of my taste. Long story short, my conclusion to thisÂ is, as much as it hurts sometimes to lose all those beautiful colors, I think they’re not in vain. You often need great colors to get a great black and white conversion.
Now, back to the not so fun work… have a good week, everyone!
… comes a new beginning.Â Especially in cute little cafes like this one in Amsterdam. Man, I wish I had some kind of talent to write. This would be the kind of shot I’d like to wrap a story around. But I really don’t. And I really admire people who do.
… in the footsteps of the masters, but it’s a lot harder than it looks because even though they had the same size feet as us, they weren’t looking down the whole time while they walked to make sure they were doing it right.
