Nikolaus and the Weihnachtsmarkt

This weekend was the second advent Market weekend here in Mayrhofen, and as my mum was over visiting we went up to have a look around and sample some of the Zillertaler Krapfen and Glühwein.

Lest We Forget....

Yesterday was the 100th anniversary of the end of hostilities, World War 1.

I like many others around the world went to pay my respects to those who gave so much so that we can live in Freedom.

We cannot allow ourselves to be complacent and think that these times of sacrifice are in our past, and it is all too easy for us to find ourselves in a position of conflict once more.

Please remember and lets not make the same mistakes as before.

“Fear leads to Anger, Anger leads to Hate, Hate leads to Suffering.”

Monochrom Oktober 2018 - day 31

Each year I dedicate the month of Oktober (German Spelling, in case you were wondering) to the beautiful art of Black & White photography. Each day I will be posting a new Black & white image


I have a passion for this style of photograph, as it makes you concentrate more on the subject and really brings out the emotion of the image.

In the post processing phase, it is more than just removing the colour out of a picture but finding the right combination of tones and shades of grey that work within an image. With applications such as Photoshop you can change these mixtures to a great degree to give you more or less of those tones.

You can experiment with your photos as I am sure that your smartphone will have an editing section in it (both the iPhone Camera App and the Facebook App do this) and play around with the different settings.
