China Central Television Tower

I was trying to find this huge camera market in the Haidian District in Beijing, when I was there this summer, I did manage to find it after walking around for a while.

On my way there I walked across this bridge, where I was able to spot this tower far out in the mist, I didn’t know at the time that it was the China Central Television Tower.
I just liked the whole scenario of the tower, the reflection , the mist and the man looking down into the water.

Click!

NB: this is the market I was heading for, well worth a visit if you’re in the area – click me!

As I wrote earlier I spend the weekend with a couple of guys n girls from the Momento photo group. It was all about what is “A Telling Portrait” and by that I mean how do you tell something about a person with just one or a few photos.
That was what we talked about most of the time. We also tried to make some portraits and then analyzing them afterwards.

Here’s a series of the good and very kind pizza man Rajiv.

We also got to make a few more portraits, but I’ll post those later on.

After my first – and so far only – 4th of July celebration, I found these trucks on my way back to my car. I got a “quick” snap of the them through the fence.

The View from Slusen

On my way home from a nice photo get together with the Momento photo group, I made a short stop here at “Slusen” to see if I could get just a few more photos that night.

A Rain Cloud Illuminated by the Sunset Light

This later turned into a thunder-cloud with lightnings and all, I got some really cool photos of that to, but I will show you those in a later post.

The cloud and lightning were getting closer, and it occurred to me, that it might not be the best idea to stand on a mountain top in a thunder-storm, so I packed my gear and hurried back to my nomad tent.

This photo is actually made the day after Christmas eve, we had the “hottest” winter as far as I can remember last year, we only got a little bit of snow in January. But I don’t mind not that found of snow anyway.

I was hanging out with my brother when I made this photo, and today it’s his birthday, congrats Bro.

Nothing Ever Really Changes

I made a short “how I made this photo” video, the video only covers the part where I’m in the field.

Post production wish, I can tell you that I ended up combining two photos, one with the cloud part – that’s from the long exposure photo – and one where I use the ground part, which is from a normal exposure with a faster shutter speed. Because the ground wasn’t quiet sharp enough in the long exposure photo. Cause when you use a long tele like I did with this photo, it doesn’t take much wind to shake the camera just a little bit, and that is enough to make the ground blurry and not sharp.

The Road to Everywhere

Well this is a classic or a cliche depending on how you look at it. But I got a soft spot for these kind of endless road photos.

A parently I got a soft spot for the exact view of the central train station here in Copenhagen, I sure have made quiet a few photos from this spot.

Three Men at the Mosque

20090402_120605

When I made this photo I didn’t see him, the third man, It wasn’t until I started processing the photo that I noticed him. And I must say I had my doubts, should he stand? or should he go?. I ended up – as you can see – keeping him in there. I don’t know why but he adds something to the photo, here we have this cool looking portrait of these two men, and then there is this head “sticking” out of the wall. it sort of takes the seriousness out of the whole thing, and I really like that.

What do you think, should he stay or should he go?

The Purple Flower

I really enjoy, making these close up photos of flowers – and other things – with my Samyang fisheye, you get a really cool perspective that way.

This photo is from my recent trip to Mongolia, I’m no flower expert, which is why I don’t know the name of it, I just found it beautiful.

Rock formation I found at Terhiin Tsagaan Lake (the white lake) in central Mongolia.

It’s a HDR made at broad daylight – the worst time to make photos – but I really like the clouds, and I think it turned out quiet alright.

You Can See Italy From Here

Today’s photo is from the Austrian Alps, you can actually see Italy from this spot, it’s the mountains all the way out in the horizon.

And it comes with a before and after comparison, enjoy.

Teddy Bears for Sale

One evening I went out to this huge market in Siem Reap. It was great fun, there where people selling all kinds of stuff, a small amusement area and a big stage with live music and other sorts of entertainment.

Just as I was leaving the market, I came by this man selling a big collection of huge teddy bears.
