New area – new snaps

Hi there,

took some pics in the area where I live now, the first short trips by foot & bike were lovely. I especially like the converted buildings of the old convent, the old mill and the idyllic surroundings. They really did a great job by filling the buildings with an interesting gallery and shop, a restaurant, a venue for meetings & conventions, rooms for an adult school and some holiday flats and of course a little museum. The river which runs there is so pretty and all this lush green is so calming. As a real country girl, I feel very comfortable here and enjoy the outdoors, and sure don´t get tired (yet) of taking pictures of trees, rivers, meadows, cows, horses, more trees & rivers, old charming buildings and even more trees.

Just a few miles along the river, there´s an impressive sculpture-park by a local artist who´s been around here since the 70´s, named Wolf E. Schulz – he sure has a great body of work. And it´s an inspiration. He uses different kinds of wood and combines it with metal, I find his creatures really wonderful.

Walkies with some views – snaps transformed encore

Hi there – long time no see, I know.

Took quite a few walks recently, and enjoyed taking some pics & playing around a bit with the colors and structures. I was especially enchanted by the sunlight shimmering through the leaves, creating a subtle luminous and dreamy atmosphere which I found incredibly calming.

There is a new mixed media painting in the works, which I might post as work-in-progress update in the near future…we´ll see how it goes.

Hope you all enjoy the glorious spring weather.












Some new snaps transformed: Ongoing Photo Series

Hi there,

I´ve been out and about again, enjoying outdoors. Here are some of the snaps I transformed.

The first part is from a nice town in north-western Germany, Oldenburg, with a really well-preserved castle and a lovely shopping area, it has a slightly nostalgic “country-side-townish” atmosphere with cute little oldfashioned cafés and nice arts´n-crafts-shops. An enjoyable place.

Snaps transformed – ongoing series

Hi all,
as I am busy working on my recent maquettes and doodling a bit by and by, at this point there is not really anything to show but I felt like posting a nice little something – so these snaps I did a few days ago come in handy. Again, I played around with them a bit, without a plan or concept what their transformations should look like in the end. I just started working on them and stopped when I liked the result 😉
I took these pics when trodding along my usual walking paths which I – I admit it – find quite ordinary. But when taking my camera with me on purpose and then taking a closer look of the views I captured when working on them, it does change my taking-for-granted-attitude each and every time. It´s nice out there! And spring is on it´s way! So enjoy and have a good week ahead.

Botanic beauties part III

Good afternoon,

to combat the current rainstorms we have here at the moment, let´s enjoy a bit of nature´s colours in this (for the moment) last part of my botanic beauties series.

Very soon there will be a work-in-progress post of the three-headed-school-dragon of Faunia  … more cuddly & comical than fierce & fiery 😉

Have a good day.
