As some of you may know, I have been stuck in Hannover, Germany for the past week. Whilst travelling from Kassel (Western Germany) towards Berlin (East Germany), we stopped in Hannover, for what was intended to be a couple hours. Seven days later we are still here. The set back has been fairly depressing in a business city with very little to do. A trip in planning for well over a year and after 4 great days on the road it all came crashing to and end beacuse of a computer fault with my van. However a couple of days ago my normal optimistic self came back and I decided to make the most of the hand I had been dealt.
My initial intention was to shoot portraits of people in Hannover, as I´m the first to admit, landscpaes, animals, street documentary, e.c.t, quickly bores me, I really like to work with people in creating pictures, and although I have got a couple portraits, which I will post at a later date, I found myself shooting thease pictures of and around a river.
All the pictures (apart from the long distance path picture) are shot at f/1.4 on my 50mm. This technique is what gives the images a slightly unique look, and of course the water reflections which would only be possible on such a flattly lit day. I returned today for another look and amongst the harsh sunlight in the woodland area the pleasing look I achieved yesterday was gone.
I hope you like, something a little differnt than my normnal stuff, just killing time in Hannover.
