Inter Woven by joe_plasmatico

Wonderful weekend and welcome back joining my subway adventures.

I am having a hard time working like a maniac for the last 2 month. So there was little time to attend your work, which will change after new years eve.

This idea for the shot came to me a few days ago, so I organized the clothing and my beloved partner and me did the posing by ourselves. Actually she had to pull the remote, cause I had this full Chewbacca costume on and there was no way to handle the trigger with those gloves.

With all those bad news about unnecessary wars fought in countries, resulting in millions of people abandoning their countries and families seeking peace and a better life, we should remember that we all are the same species, humans.

So it is about time to act like a human being, loving, caring, sharing and lifting us to a new level of understanding.

There is no we or the others, there is only us all together. We all sit in the same boat called Earth and we travel along throughout the galaxy in hope for a much better future.

Stay save, make love, live in peace and you will see, the force will be with you, always.

Merry Christmas time to everybody

Hello Ween by joe_plasmatico

Hello dear subsoil dwellers and suburban lovers.

Wishing you all a pleasant Halloween times, lot’s of spook, candies and shocking moments.^^

Usually it takes days for a good preparation for this kind of shooting to get everything together, but this one was a spontaneous first try.

I came from an other shooting and had this requisites with me (did the ‘Spring Love’ shooting beforehand).

This selfie I managed to take in only a couple of minutes, sending out my riddle and message before the police was closing in.

Glad I had my orange BMW convertible getaway cart with me and so I could perform the classy trick disappearing into darkness, waiting there patently and making up new plans and surface again pretty soon.

Trick or Treat (°.°)

Relation Ship by joe_plasmatico

Hello photography aficionados;

I participated in the project One minute on earth from the site kujaja dot com where photographers around the globe should shoot a photo at the same time at 9:10am Greenwich time, so I was lucky to shoot at daytime. (others had to stand up at 3 or 4 in the morning^^)

After one of the hottest summers followed up by an irresistible indian summer the weather has changed to a cloudy and cold autumn time.

Clouds covering the sky, fog everywhere in the early morning and 100% humidity makes a shooting very challenging. Colors are flat, contrasts non existent and everything blurs and fades away.

So I bought this big rainbow umbrella to lighten up the scenery and went to one of my favorite spots, a jetty at the Chiemsee in Upper Bavaria in the town of Chieming.

The multicolored umbrella symbolizes our globe in all it’s facets of different cultures and ethnical diversity.

Remember, we all sit in the same boat, sailing through time and space. Peace love and harmony.

Hike and Seek by joe_plasmatico

Hiho dear 500px community.

Enjoying the very last warm days in this year I went with my partner to the Achensee close to Innsbruck in Austria to do some hiking on top of the Rofan plateau.

As you know, the weather can change in the mountains every minute and temperature can drop really fast. And you need a lot of patience and time when hunting down your motive.

This is the Rosskopfe summit, at around 2100 over sea level, exposed to strong winds over 30-70 km/h which make the long exposures photography quiet tricky on most of the days.

Here I got one not blown away exposure, so my sweat and muscle ache paid off^^.

Stay tuned, and have a nice weekend.

Energetic Mayhem by joe_plasmatico

Hello my photography lovers;

this was a real spectacular sunset at the river Rhine in Germany, where one of the oldest nuclear plants close to Phillipsburg is still threatening the environment.

It seems so ridiculous, that the power of the river is not used to produce energy, but is used to cool down this time bomb for the the next 50 and more years. (this is the time even when they shut it down immediately, not to mention what to do with this place for the next hundred thousand years.)

So far, keep well and say no to nuclear use in general.

The Fairoid by joe_plasmatico

Wonderful weekend to all photonoids around the globe.
(black on black)

Oktoberfest is doing quiet good without me, found some replacement to empty the barrels of beer, so I can post a shot here again.

Continuing my series of remarkable skyscrapers this is the second highest building (256 meters), situated at the trade fair in Frankfurt. Until 1991 it was the highest building in Europe.

Don’t know how to present this frame, if it’s better this way or should it be the portrait format.

I’ll be at the Oktoberfest next weekend, so, if anybody is visiting Munich, give me a call, and we can meet for a couple of beers.

Prosit (^-^)

Cabin Fever by joe_plasmatico

Welcome back photography aficionados.

As a matter of fact, I do shoot landscapes quiet often. I even get up early to travel some 150km to the spot.

That day the weather forecast was promising a fabulous sunrise and so I made a spontaneous trip, having a fantastic weather until I reached the area.

Clouds where hanging low and moving fast and they got stuck over the Karwendel mountains. Just turning to the right the sky was bright blue and the birds and cows where mocking me.^^

I waited there for nearly an hour, made some test shots and went off to an other location where the sun was shining and everything was cool.

Yes, a lot of people have photographed this marvelous place, but not in the middle of a blooming field. Maybe it is because autumn/spring provides the better light conditions.

Enjoy your weekend, I’ll be at the Oktoberfest tomorrow to get a beer.

Last Call by joe_plasmatico

Hello friends and spectators.

The insanity of humanity will reach Munich the coming weekend, when ‘The Oktoberfest 2015’ will take place and it will bring millions of people together.

So, last call to come over and fight for the last few seats left. Will meet you there.

As an experiment, I am loading up two photos this time (got no time next 2 weeks). The second one is a prosecution of my architecture fine art work. So if you find some time, have a look on it.

Cheers, and many beers (°-°)

The Electroid by joe_plasmatico

Wishing you all a great weekend.
(black on black)

Glad you could spare some time and have a look at my latest fine art edition of the Argentum or Silvertower in Frankfurt a. Main.

One of the most impressive buildings with an unique facade and easy to access. That is why it is one of the most frequented locations for people like me^^.

Anyway, inspired by so many stunning images I have seen from others, I had to try out myself.

Ok, yes, I worked on it for days, adjusting und tweaking here and there, working on so many flaws and details to keep the balance of the composition and the light in every part.

Any comments and critiques are welcome.

Stay tuned

Field Research by joe_plasmatico

Hello my friends and spectators.

A spectacular summer is coming to an end and the harsh light changes to a smoother yellow each day.

If you wonder what I did all the time, here you can see me doing some field ‘research’ near the summer house of my parents close to the river Rhine in the Rhenish Palatinate.

It is said, that you should try to take your landscapes exposures in the morning or evening light, leaving out most of the day where 90% of the action takes place.

So here I am starting a small series of open air shots in the middle of the day.

Feel free to give me some advice, critics or whatever you like to say about.

Model: Selfie

Remember, the light is with you, always.
