A few hot days. > 30° C / 90° F. No rain.
The rain started last night. At 2 am. It rained the whole night.
When I got out this morning to shoot this image I was wet within minutes. Not because it was still raining. No… the rain had stopped. But humidity was extremely high.
I had to convince myself that it was okay to get wet feet and wet clothes. Next time I see Michelangelo I will have a word with him.
Happy days. Reinhold

Gray, dull, cold and rainy weather… I needed some colours in my life. So I sat down and create some abstracts for me and you. Happy days. Reinhold
The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step…
The making of Bridge in Amsterdam
I processed the underlying image in Lightroom CC
Converted it into black and white
Used dodge and burn to create more contrast
Afterwards edited it in Photoshop CC
Used the oil paint filter once
And … after leaving my playground…
“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”
– Pablo Picasso
“You don’t take a photograph, you make it”
– Ansel Adams
Wouldn’t it be awesome if one could paint an image like this?
I captured the underlying image in Amsterdam and stumbled upon it today while I was cleaning up my files. Always nice to go back to these older images and to play around with them.
I left Berlin for the weekend and drove back home. We had beautiful weather. Sunshine and very mild temperatures at our lake. I sat on the terrace and watched the clouds passing by. While I was watching I asked myself how would a perfect cloud look like? I sat there for quite a while and captured this small, cool looking, perfect cloud. Now I am back in Berlin… and I can still see it passing by.
Happy and sunny days!
Excuse me while I kiss the sky.
Tempodrom: founded by Irene Moessinger, it opened in 1980 next to the Berlin Wall on the west side of Potsdamer Platz, housed in a large circus tent. After several changes of location it is now housed in a permanent building in the Kreuzberg neighborhood.
That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.
This is an abstract created from a colorful ad sign in Berlin. For those of you who live in Berlin or have visited Berlin it is easier. The word has something to do with inspiration, creativity, … Happy days. Reinhold
