I’ve been in a bit of a photography ‘rut’. I’m not sure why, and I don’t like it, but I want to do something about it. Maybe it’s because we haven’t traveled much since moving to Germany and I’m left uninspired, or the fact my computer isn’t handling the tasks I want it to (like I explained in the last post), or because Hamburg is very often grey and rainy and my body is still getting used to the lack of sun. Yesterday I decided I wanted to do something that doesn’t require too much creativity but would still remind me why I love photography so much. I dragged Mike with me to the Speicherstadt (warehouse district) in downtown Hamburg in order to capture an iconic scene after the sun set, and I managed to capture this. This is first a clean edit.
I decided to try and experiment with colors for a different edit.
Last night did get me more excited to getting out and exploring the city with my camera. I guess that’s why I ended up editing it right away and posting this! 🙂 We also stumbled upon the first Chinese restaurant in this city that looked more or less authentic. We were going to eat leftovers for dinner but decided instead for hotpot. It was great!
If you’re in Hamburg and want to find this exact spot, it’s where the red dot is. You’ll meet plenty of other photographers on that bridge.
Which picture do you like better?
