Wheelies In My Mind

Some of my thoughtful moments, wheelies in my mind, digitally recorded.

Old freightyard Freiburg

As they are tearing down most of the buildings of the old freightyard Freiburg, a friend of mine and I used the opportunity and took some pictures inside one of the old warehouses today. I liked the empty and slightly ruined look and I am thinking about to use this place as the setting for a photoshooting in the near future. Reminds me a little bit of Footloose and Flashdance …

UPDATE: I will visit the old freightyard Freiburg again this week, this time with another friend of mine who will act as a model and will give me some tipps how to improve my portrait/ people photography. Fitting to my previous impression of Footloose, she is a dancer as well, so … :)

Summer Portrait: Natalie

altMy friend Natalie

I took this summer portrait on a sunny day a few weeks ago, while we were sitting in front of my favourite cafĂ©. A tree on her left side gave us some shade and nice light effects during the day so that I decided to take some pictures of her. At first, she wasn’t very excited about being photographed, but I think she’s pretty pleased with this result now. Hopefully she will be available for more photoshoots in the future!

Thanks for the nice day, Natalie! It was a pleasure :)

Botanic Garden Freiburg

On Saturday, I spent the day off with a friend and visited the Botanic Garden in Freiburg.
The Botanic Garden was founded in 1620 as part of the University of Freiburg called “Hortus Medicus”. It was moved several times due to the growing city and its destruction during wars in 1632 and 1796, the final Botanic Garden was opened at its final place in 1912/ 1914. After another destruction during World War 2 it was rebuild and now hosts over 6.000 different species. It is divided into several areas with different plants, like an east asian area, a tundra area and so on. There are also some greenhouses with exotic flowers and succulents, but the greenhouses were closed when we arrived there.

Please enjoy the pictures!
