The weekly theme (2nd December) is about creative restrictions. Helen suggested different kinds of restrictions: a special lens, ratio or monochrome. Actually at the moment, I couldn’t stand anymore restrictions, especially not self-inflicted restrictions.
I have to hunt for the last light almost on daily basis. I think, this are enough of restrictions for my part. I’m struggling with shutter speed, ISO and have as one additional – at least not camera related - restriction: my dog Felix. He is my constant partner in crime. He is very fond of hunting down mice and keeping everybody on distance, who doesn't belong to family and friends. Nevertheless Felix is waiting patiently most of the time until I'm taking down the camera - except for this interesting moments, when mice are running in front of his nose and strangers are coming in my direction. He is also responsible to lead me home, when the last light is really gone and the flashlight is not working.
So I have to be very happy to have at least pictures like this. I was still on my way back from the vineyards in Lutzmannsburg. The sun was already gone and the fog was raising. I shot picture after pictures. In the end most pictures were trash, but once in a while one picture has some quality - and I think/hope my skills are improving.
