My Passion(s) in photography

This post is my contribution to Scott Thomas’ 25th assignment: “Your Photography Passion”

What is a passion? And if I have a passion, then what is it? – – – Scott has set up the until now most challenging assignment.

Concidering what to post here has made me realize how time and events has changed my points of view – and with that, my passions.

Therefore, picking a ‘passion’ is choosing a point in time. I’ll present some pictures, each linked to a time and what my mind and/or heart was full of.
Let me start this day 10 years ago. My children at work. They are both with Bruun-Rasmussen, a well-known (in Denmark?) auction house. How could I write about passion without presenting my children. I have been taking pictures of them since they were born.

Shooting pictures on vacations. Have you ever visited Greece? Maybe this picture can give an idea about the mood:

Taking pictures of interesting objects. These are spiders just leaving their eggs where they have been safe kept in silk through the winter.

Who haven’t had to take pictures of flowers? I took a lot – and then realized that I’d never ever be able to reach the level as Cindy Dyer. (I had to mention her and her faboulous pictures)

Maybe there is something starting here. This is from Venice – they do not note that I’m taking pictures.

And when you’re able to take a picture like this…. It was a very special moment.

I’ve tried to stick to pictures shot 22nd of May – but you’ll understand that I had to include the pictures of the grandchildren even that they were taken in the autumn.

Maybe Scott discovered my passion in photography before I did myself. I think the last picture has something that comes close to what I’m seeking. Thanks for a really challenging assignment Scott.

Reviewing the past ten years of my photography leads me to the conclusion, that my passions are my grandchildren, old friends, and street photography.
– And whatever catches my eye 🙂

7 tanker om “My Passion(s) in photography”

  1. Carsten, grandchildren are hard to beat as far as passion is concerned 🙂

    Yes I have been to Greece and wished I had taken more photos years ago there, especially on the island of Ikaria near Samos. What a place to awaken the senses!

    Your insightful street photos are well done as are your images of emerging spiders and the dandelion. I think you have a passion for life in general 🙂

  2. Fanatstisk fin indgang til emnet – at gÃ¥ perioder igennem og “opdage”, hvad der har fanget dig, dit liv og dit kamera. Det er der kommet en spændende fortælling om dig og dine billeder ud af….

    1. Tak skal du ha’ Truels.
      Nu mÃ¥ jeg se at komme i gang med bloggeriet igen. -NÃ¥r det er for varmt at være i haven….
