Love Lock

This looks like a very simple everyday shot. The significance lies in where it was taken. It’s just a padlock on a bit of exposed rebar. This just happens to be the Berlin Wall. Let’s not build walls anymore.

You’d be forgiven if you thought this shot was taken in Holland. However this shot was taken in Germany at Castle Sans Souci which I visited during a weeks stay in Germany I had this year.

For this weeks contribution I thought I’d leave my holiday shots and share with you a very fresh picture I took last Thursday. I took it while attending a whisky tasting hosted by the Caledonian Society of Norway. This is a shot of the lecture holder Prof. Robertson Wellen. I asked him to stand by the window as the room was a little on the dark side before the event. I’m pleased with the result so I thought I’d share it with you all…..by the time you read this I should have sobered up. Have a great weekend.

Meet Poul (Paul). If I had a twin soul Poul would be it. Even his wife says so. Despite our age difference we just click when we are together. I hope to be just as active when I reach 85.

Taken while on a visit to Lübeck in Germany. I thought the guys in suits provided a nice contrast to the picture.

By now my time in China was nearing an end. The last night we were in Shanghai. We took a glass of Wine in Shanghais’ Le Baron night club. It was early so there was no one there expect me my colleague, and an army of bar staff. This picture on the wall caught my eye. I know it’s a bit of a cheat but I loved it. I converted it to black and white. I think it has impact … and three pretty girls :0)

You could take this type of shot in many cities around the world. I just happened to be in Shanghai. I love the fact that her eyes are closed in this shot and, that wonderful expression. Even her carrier bag sends a message .

Not much PP except the B&W conversion. I just cropped a little. I didn’t bother to straighten it either, I liked the angle.

This one was a grab shot. Taken while I had my cell phone out of my pocket walking down a side street in Xiamen. Lots of stories here. I didn’t pay much attention to this shot until I saw it on my screen at home. It’s nice in colour too. However I think the colours steal the storytelling element somewhat.
I’ll leave that for you to decide dear reader.

Fisherman: On my way around the lakes in Xiamen there are lots of fishermen trying their luck. I thought that the hipstamatic app did rather well for this rainy day shot
