Behind the Scene

by Sigrid Strohschneider-Laue July. 11, 2019 535 views

In the last two years I documented a lot of Lutzmannsburg and posted some pictures on Photoblog. Most of them are from interesting places like the St. Veit Church, the Phallus of Law, one of the many Barns or our very own Materl. I continue this documentation, when I have to spent more than the one or two days a week with my parents.

Every time Felix has to go for a walkie – I have to admit he will have shorter legs at the end of this summer -, we search for different places to take pictures. It’s funny how much a well known village will become stranger and stranger during a photo walk. I actually see things I never spotted before – especially the less nice and less neat corners of the village, but also more horses, which are always nice to photograph

Last time I photographed more barns, which are situated at the end of every estate. The houses overlook the street, but the barn is built on the other end of the plot. It seems as if the barns secure the backside of the village like a (weak) defense system. In front of some barns are also stacks of wood or agricultural equipment, which came really handy, when I needed a coat rack.

I'm still playing with camera and lens. I shot a lot of pictures with this horses as a "living addition".

Hi Sigrid,  I was intrigued by your 2nd and 3rd photos.  Colour v B&W.  I like the B&W version the best.  Nice work :)

Nice camera work....Poor Felix, he's trying to decide how long he'll be tethered there.....
Do you know why horses stand head to tail like in # 1????
It's a symbiotic relationship between the two. Each one of the pair uses his/her tail to scare flies away from the other horse's face.
It works very well! A version of "You scratch my back & I'll scratch yours".......right???

Yes, they are close for years by now. A little bit suspicious, because they don't know me and this scary little wolf at my side ...

Oh poor Felix, was rescued like this and without water! I'm glad, l could win him over and have his complete trust. Such a nice little doggie as long nobody will come close to me - except family and friends of course. ❤

It never ceases to amaze, how different things may appear, each time I go out with one of my "scene snatchers"....I have the usual areas I drive by almost every day @ sunrise & sunset, and it seems there's almost always something photo worthy....As a result, there are very few days I don't want to go out....Even when I don't see anything super remarkable, I still love to experiment with the camera settings, compositions, focal points, etc......I just can't remain indoors @ Sunrise or Sunset.......

Our little rescue doggie: "Happy",  is very protective of us and his territory, as well!
