In memory of a friend.

My friend Martin Müller-Römheld passed away last Sunday. We had recently been discussing a list of books that had made an impression on our lives. On Martin’s list was the book “Steppenwolf” by the Swiss German author Hermann Hesse. I have selected a passage from the book that I believe pays homage to the man and his life. The accompanying series of photographs I shot recently complement the text perfectly.

“My resolve to die was not the whim of an hour. It was the ripe, sound fruit that had slowly grown to full size, lightly rocked by the winds of fate whose next breath would bring it to the ground. ”

Rest in peace my friend.

I’m a big fan of the work of Ansel Adams. For as long as I can remember, I have always been fascinated by the glowing silver hues of his epic landscape photography. Unfortunately,  the Yosemite mountain range is a bit of a hike from my house here in Belgium – my local park will have to do. For now.  Hope you like the image – and should you like one of the images enough to want a pristine print on your wall, please write to me at shonski50@me.com and we’ll chat about print sizes, prices and shipping arrangements. Thank you for your visit.

One of my favourite photo apps for iPhone is called AutoStitch Panorama from Cloudburst Research. While the iOS 6 version of iPhone/iPad has this feature built in – using the app on the older models can result in some interesting and unexpected effects. Below is a series of panoramas that I’ve put together over the past couple of years. Hope you like the series of images – and should you like one of the images enough to want a pristine print on your wall, please write to me at shonski50@me.com and we’ll chat about print sizes, prices and shipping arrangements. Thank you for your visit.
