A few pictures, not so many words.

Berner Nachbetrachtung III – Nachtschicht


Zytglogge von Osten aus gesehen

Let’s try something different this time, shall we? English introduction follows beneath the gallery.
Ich mag die Nachtfotografie: Der Kontrast zwischen Lichtern und der Dunkelheit in den Städten ist faszinierend. Dazu kommt, dass ich Stück für Stück das Langzeitbelichten lerne, womit sich nochmal immens viele Möglichkeiten ergeben. Dazu eine Stadt wie Bern. Voll von Strahlern, die die Gebäude der Altstadt anstrahlen, die Trams und Busse, die rot beleuchtet durch die Innenstadt ziehen. Faszination pur.

English version: I like to shoot at night. It is fascinating to see and capture the contrast between the light and the darkness in the cities. An even better, I keep learning more and more about long time exposure. Another possibility to get creative. And most importantly, the city of Bern offers a huge variety. Lights, illuminating the old buildings of its city core. The buses and trams in alarming red, driving through the city center. All in all, a great place to shoot and make pictures.

    • Thanks so much for your compliments 🙂 I still am at my beginnings, though. So most of the good stuff might be due to pure luck 🙂

    La del Mc Donnalds es fantástica; arte y urbanismo nocturno; me habla de la urgencia vital en la que todos estamos sumergidos.
    Magnifica instantánea, de verdad.
    The Mc Donnalds is fantastic, art and urban night, I talk about the vital urgency in which we are all immersed. Magnificent instant, really.

    • Thank you very much for your nice words. I wish there were a few more people around for a bit additional excitement, but it looks like the story can be told without them 🙂
