Weekly Photo Challenge

First: Forgive me, for this is not a Lomo-pic :OIt's a composing of a rather old, mirrored + silhouetted photo with lots of coloured layers, scratches and bokeh dots (the blurry ones). It was part of a semester project back...

Wordpress has asked its bloggers to post a photo that shows what inspires them to blog. So, dear Wordpress, here it comes...Wordpress hat seine Blogger dazu aufgefordert ein Foto zu posten, das zeigt, was sie dazu inspiriert zu bloggen. Also, liebes Wordpress, dann mal los …

The inspiration for my blog? Colours.

Die Inspiration für meinen Blog? Farben.

Goethe’s Faust calls out that it is In the colorful reflection we have what is life. There are many photography bloggers out there, who take the most amazing and beautiful pictures, who show us a world that is sometimes hard to imagine. And some of them even claim to be amateurs.

Aber wenn ich als Amateur mit meiner 08/15 Digitalkamera versuche einen Moment einzufangen, entwischen mir oft die Farben ohne viel Eindruck zu hinterlassen - leblos und uninspiriert.
