Walking my dog… #1

The training and walking of Boomer, my dog, is still taking a lot of time, which I honestly spent with a smile. I lost 8 kilos weight through these exercices and I can walk now for hours without any problems. This is a fitness program for the new photography season starting next year. Until then I will post images which I will capture with my old iPhone. This will also give me the opportunity to work with some mobile apps. Happy days. Reinhold + Boomer

Peace of mind

Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give – pleasure, possessions, power – but lack peace of mind, you can never be happy.
Dada Vaswani

Water is always a support or a healing thing apart from, you know, love or peace of mind.

“I wish that all of nature’s magnificence, the emotion of the land, the living energy of a place could be photographed.”
— Annie Leibovitz

“It’s weird that photographers spend years or even a whole lifetime, trying to capture moments that added together, don’t even amount to a couple of hours.”
— James Lalropui Keivom

Urban landscape print

Today I was searching through my files and stumbled over one of my all time favorites. I captured the image in Frankfurt years ago, when I was into street photography and urban landscapes. Today I read about the artist Steve Donwood, who did all the album artwork for the band Radiohead. He said that computers are alienating because they put a sheet of glass between you and whatever is happening. Finally he said: “You never really get to touch anything that you’re doing unless you print it out”. That’s what I did with the image above. And it feels awesome.

See you on Thursday next week. Happy days. Reinhold
