Textures

End of March my husband and I went on a road trip to New Mexico. This was my first visit, and the highlight of this trip was definitely the White Sands Monument. I was fascinated by the texture of the sand and how imprints formed the desert landscape. I am still in the process of editing the photographs, but I’ll show some work in progress!

Hometown

Today I thought show a series of my hometown, (well one of my hometowns: Santa Monica, California). I have spend most of my life here and I was lucky to live so close to the ocean. These moments are very unusual and rare I think, especially when you think of California. But I love the moments when the thick fog comes in from the pacific ocean and you see buildings and palm trees slowly disappearing. So I grabbed the camera quickly and walked to Palisades Park next to Ocean Avenue. These are taken with my digital canon camera.

Stadtgottesacker in Halle an der Saale

Stadtgottesacker is a small but very beautiful cemetery in the city Halle. There are many important figures buried here, among others, the family of the composer Händel. While I was studying in Halle I have been there a couple of times to take pictures of this place. I do miss living there because it was a beautiful small town with many old buildings and a lot of history. These images are taken with my 35mm Nikon analog camera with a black and white film.
