merry christmas and a happy new year!

frohes fest und nen guten rutsch ins neue jahr!

and now some christmas-infected photos
in the first one here you can see in the background the biggest christmas tree on earth.. yep.. we got the biggest christmas phallus of the world here in dortmund :)

and the biggest santa claus.. he's sooooo huge you can only see his feet here.. and beside this big red man the ugliest santa thing rhino whatever...

and the back of this pair.. i'm afraid of these two red santas...

we got some more 'the biggest in the world'-things around here in dortmund.. but i dont took photos of all that shit.. most people like it.. i dont..

and at the end i wish you another time a merry christmas and a happy new year :)

best wishes, fabian


wow.. the last update is nearly 1 month ago.. i really should take more photos and of course scan more :)

well in the last post i mention that i'll show u some shots of the maybe never ending 'Heya BVB'-series.. and i mentioned that i wanted to sort my negs.. though no one wished me luck i didn't do anything with them.. but i should really sort them in the future.. would be much easier to find photos i'm searching for if they were sorted with some kind of system.. maybe this will be a nice new year's pledge ;)

still searching for a job.. hmm..

so here we go with the photos :)

these guys were really nice.. i was staying around about one hundred meters in front of the stadium.. they asked me if i could make a photo of them.. i did..
srt 303b 35mm

p6 with 80mm on tmax 400

friends of mine.. the game was quite boring.. so the looked around for something interesting and found me ;)

both srt303b 17mm

just someone who makes money out of this weekly events..
srt303b 35mm

i dont know this one isnt really sharp.. but i like it.. i've got some more shots of such guys who are selling the fan-magazine.. dont know.. maybe in the future i'll make some more..
p6 80mm

the next one is one of those shot where i asked people for a photo.. in this i asked the guy on the left.. a character.. didnt even recognized that i got a family.. but then there stand 3 in front of my lens not only the one i asked.. so.. i never tell those people to stage for me.. i never give them commands how to look.. or at least to smile! .. i let them do what they want to do.. it makes these photos interesting for me.. i switch between the formats and films.. i always have got 2 or 3 cameras with me.. each one with a different film.. one loaded with a b/w- one with a color-film sometimes both with color.. sometimes i only make 1 or 2 photo(s) before a game.. the maximum were two films yet.. so.. coming back to this one.. i like it and choosed to present it yet only because of the 'lady' in the middle..xd7 35/f1.8 @ 2.8 as i remember.. i underexposed the whole film by accident 1 f-stop.. silly me..

same as the above one.. xd7 35/f1.8 @ 2.8

so far the last shot in this series (ok.. it was in fact one of the first i did.. but who cares?)
its unsharp.. yep.. but its cool!!!
p6 80mm

there will come more shots in the future maybe some you see here will be separated out.. maybe some i already took will be in the series.. i really dont know..

finally i hope i will post a bit more often in the future :)

best wishes, fabian
