take back your life

As always, if you have questions, objections, worries or praise, and especially if you found your picture and want it removed, feel free to contact me. I will get back to you as soon as possible. You can also read my full disclaimer, if you are interested.

 

These pictures were taken while running errands in Düsseldorf. Over the next few days you will see more pictures from the Düsseldorf area, because it’s always easier to shoot while travelling. That’s probably why there is a large subset of street photographers who hardly ever shoot where they live. I’m obviously not one of them, but I definitely understand why this is easier for some people. Shooting in a place that you know too well can become rather monotonous and boring. Good to mix things up every now and then.

All pictures taken with: Olympus Pen E-PL3 and Panasonic Lumix 20mm f/1.7 ASPH.

Is it me or does this look like the 80s?

For some reason this is my favourite one of the series. Not very narrative, but definitely pretty.

The Düsseldorf subway is way too dark to take pictures, actually. Too much noise.
