Im Augenblick bereite ich eine Fotoausstellung vor. Es geht um das Thema Tauben. Ja, ihr lest richtig. Tauben – kein spannendes Thema. Bei meiner Recherche entdeckte ich ein fantastisches Buch von Daniel Haat-Wackernagel “ Die Taube – Vom heiligen Vogel der Liebesgöttin zur Straßentaube. Unglaublich, was er wissenschaftlich zusammen getragen hat. Die Wechsehafte Beziehung zwischen Mensch und Taube ist schon über 5000 Jahre alt.
So wurde sie schon 3000 Jahre v. Chr. als Navigationshilfe bei Küstenschiffahrt eingesetzt. Findet sie kein Land, kehrt sie zu ihrem Nest auf dem Schiff zurück.
Die Fotos entstanden allen in Ägypten, hauptsächlich in Luxor. Vor dem Lockdown wegen Covid-19 besuchte ich meinen Bruder in Luxor. Er restauriert dort die Tempelanlagen für die Chicago University. Eine grandiose Umgebung für das Taubenprojekt.
Bleibt neugierig und schaut hier öfter vorbei. Ich halte euch auf dem Laufenden.
Während der Quarantäne entstanden die Abenteuer, die das Krokodil mit Christoph erlebt. Das Kroko ist schon ziemlich alt. Es ist das Premieren-Geschenk als Regiea-Assistent an der WLB dem Kinder- und Jugendtheater Esslingen. Viel Spaß beim Ansehen.
Hier das letzte Abenteuer. Kroko heult den Vollmond an und entdeckt den Hasen im Vollmond. Mein youtube channel mit den gesamten Abenteuern.
It was one of the special moments, yesterday. In the beginning of my travel, Anait brought me to this Scarf, Clothing Shop. In one room the are 4 weaving loom. They have such lovely products, spontaneously i asked, if I can come to do a short video.
Yesterday I was there. From the very first impression is, all the Owner and the weaver are a good team. As experienced film maker and documentary filmer, i feel it at once, if the conditions are bad. The owner tells me, i can ask them without him, everything.
Finally i worked there for over 3 hours. I learned how they take care on the quality of the product in every step of process. They use the best quality of egypt cotton. They have an artist who designed new matterns. The waever works beside the shop, you can everytime look around and talk with the friendly women. I asked them, if they like there work and every of them said from the heart yes. You can feel it, if they say it because the owner is around. No, they realy love their work. You can see it, if you taker your time to look, how thea are working.
So, if you are in Luxor, you find the Habiba Hand Weaving on the West Bank on the way to the Medinat Habe, Valley of the Kings, the Tombs. you find them on the googel maps. Feel free and have a look, you get lost by their rich offers. Enjoy it and support them. You will have a wonderfull scarf or whatever you choose. Have a nice day.
Last Saturday shows the artist Wael Nour his paintings „Different Moments“. I had the chance to shoot, edit and upload now on my social networks. The fastet was Instagram. Here you can see the first video impression of the Exhibition.
My trip in Egypt ends in 3 days. There a lot of moments I still could share. Let’s see what i can do. Have a nice day.
2 weeks i visit my brother in Luxor. He is Stone Mason and works for the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago. I got phantastic inside views about the ancient Temples, Pharaos, Goddesses. With his wife, they invited me to the Pyramides and Sphinx by Cairo. All is still an amazing trip. The Internet in the hotel is so slow, that i try the first time to write on my website. Back at home, i write more about my trip in Egypt.
Technic runs, so i have to keep updated. In moment I learn to build folders in the Media of WP. Because i will implement Panoramic photography. That needs a new folder structure. With WP plugins i hope to manage it. Than i renew my website. I use it to concentrate here on my business and perhaps on two other working field. Let’s see where the travel and changes ends up. I keep in touch! Have a nice day.
better is, not 360 video goes, i learn to work unity3d. It is the first time i realy do a video tutorial of a software. It is a great experience. you are only allowed to do the steps which they offer. It is new, absolutly new for me. I started over one year ago. Than i thougth to buy a software, cos I wanted to concentrate myself on the content. That’s what I’m interested in. But it was not that what i suggested. After one year now, i decided, I have to learn Unity3D. It should be not so complicated. Let’s see.
That is the reason, I’m not so far as I wanted. That’s normal I think, if you start something new. Let’s see where it goes.
New Photo Series
What else. Yesterday I started a photo series on Instagram. All of us, we are useing to much plastic. I think, there are so many horrible pictures of plastic pollution out in the web. How it will be, if I show the plastic with faded flowers – all in Black & White. I bring two passion together, controlled lighting in the studio, outside shooting, every friend can participate and years ago, I shooted blossom out flower with a hard lighting, often only silhouettes. Now, I do a photography journey, let’s were it ends.
