calling his girlfriend from the academy

Another year is nearly over. And what a good one 2009 was for my family and me. The christmas days are a chance to reflect what is behind and what is ahead of us. So I look forward to spending quality time with friends next year again, seing parts of the world I know and do not know yet.

On my agenda there are two photo projects, the Year with a Leica and the One will force me to take photos with one given camera / lens combo through a year, the other stands for searching / composing daily themes. And my travels will hopefully bring me to the USA, Canada and Italy plus several trips to german cities (Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, Cologne for Photokina fair).

This picture was taken on my NYC trip in November, remembering me of the many cool things I was gifted to see during my one week stay in this marvelous city.

So I'll call and mail a few friends in the next days and finalize my plans for 2010.

Hope you have a great christmas time and look forward to the upcoming year as well.

Christmas time . . .

The month of december is always very hectic for me as my business has high season towards the end of the year. Capturing this nice lit tree in Central park a few weeks ago was one of the few glimpses of approaching christmas I was able to see and feel this season :-)

Go out and enjoy the lights, catch the bokeh.

The shot ' Central Park IV - embrace the blue ' was taken early in the morning.
