02/2015: Red chairs

I haven’t had much time for the blog lately, so this post was queuing for quite a while now, several months actually. In case you notice something weird in some frames, thats actual snow, which dates the image back to last winter. I’m currently right in the middles of semester 4 of Design study and as always working on several projects at the same time. Quick overview: New CI for “Türkisch-Deutsches Filmfestival Nürnberg” in typo class, a book about fonts in graphic class and several small photo projects to topics such as “home” and “rituals” for photo class.

Some of the photo projects will soon be on the website which im currently updating with new images. Also im working on several portfolios for application stuff. This post also contains some of these soon to be published works, as well as some commission stuff and of course lots of private stuff and uni stuff. Since there are some hundreds of pics waiting for the next post, its about time this on gets released, so have fun scrolling through some pics.

Im not a friend of exploiting the homeless or poor but i like to analyse public life in its entirety. Notice all those people rushing to work or doing shopping or getting home to their loved ones while this homeless man is sleeping on the ground. This is a very common scene in every big city i guess, still sad.

01/2015: Bye bye Chiquita!

Hi folks. I have been pretty busy with the semester projects (see type magazine layouts and Frisches Design documentation) and with exhibitions, portfolio updating, relauching the website and arranging some nice series (check out here), doing some research about other photography and fine art schools and also some agencies and photographers that may be in for an internship. I also had some commissions and some personal stuff to deal with. So here’s a belated 2015 warm-up featuring some pictures and stories from last fall until now.

i9512_M6_TRIX_XTOL

Starting off, some impressions from the “Frisches Design 2014” exhibition/conference. This was some night before the start when we set up the big plastic donuts

09/2014: Strom aus ♥

Hello.
The last weeks have been really exhausting, work-wise, i’m looking forward to find some rest and some time to lean back in the winter holidays and to review the last year with all its ups and downs, its little unexpected joys and strenuous setbacks.
I hope you will too, because from time to time you just need to hold on to question yourself, your goals and ideals and to reflect on one more chapter of your journey.
So, uni-wise, we’ve been doing a whole lot the last few months: We filmed a documentary for Audiovisual Comm. class, did some advertising shoots for Photo class and created magazine layouts for Typo class.
Also i started doing some smaller commissions, which is cool because of the experience and the people i get to know and to work with. And then theres also some other photo projects im working on plus my complete portfolio which has to be revisited for the website.
So for now, here is the last entry for 2014, enjoy!

05/2013: “I think you should keep doing that as a hobby.”

Oh boy its another template again! I cant help it. To be honest im not even sorry. I just  love to play with css. Whatever. This post will be rather personal than other ones, for reasons. Lots of pictures about family stuff of course. But also some stories about my work life or profession or whatever you may call it. You know that feeling when you go to work everyday and it feels ok? Not great, just ok. You do it because you can, because you get paid for it, because its comfortable. You just function and do stuff and you tell yourself “well it may not be what i dreamt of but a time will come. Be realistic. Whats to grumble about? Just be patient and wait” You know that feeling? Well i do. And there came a point where i asked myself “Wait? wait for what?” And for some reason i could not answer that question. That was back when i made the decision to apply to college again. People i told about this noticed “oh nice, so youre going to get your engineering masters degree?” and i answered “well, not exactly.”
[audiotube id=”JtKQZLbdEzw” time=”no”]
More on that in the post itself. This one contains much text, dont freak out. You can of course skip my confession writing ego trip stuff and just look at the pictures.

i4841Starting with some casual Südstadt frames. This is the Hexar, loaded with Ilford Delta 400. Mid-speed films shot in bright sunlight tend to give hard contrasts anyway, so i decided to push it a little more and souped the roll in Rodinal 1+25.

i4842As expected, contrast is dominating. However the tones are really nice in most frames.

i4844This was in mid-June. People demonstrating for Taksim. If youre not that familiar with the topic you might wanna check out this documentary from Simon Becker, who was right there in Istanbul and captured some intensive moments when things started to escalate.

i4846 i4847 i4855At some flea market.

i4856Cigarette

i4858 i4859I know its boring but i just like these kinds of structures and patterns, plus the grain is really nice. Only two years to get a clean, even negative.

i4860 i4863One for the former smoker-me.

i4865 i4867So after weeks of rain and depressive dark days the weather got better again. Finally.

i4870Some factory building outside Neustadt.

i4873What remains.

i4874Since it was midseason, we decided to pick some strawberries. “Some” somehow became 3 kilograms.

i4876So each of us got a bucket with about 1,5kg of strawberries. That was literally all i ate the entire weekend.

i4877Some pickers in the background.

i4889Remember?

i4891This is Fuji Neopan 400 in Rodinal 1+50.

i4892So we had some fun time shopping. Except that i didnt.

i4896 i4897As soon as it started to rain, people start running for cover, which i always find kind of amusing. This guy didnt seem to care about this wuzz at all.

i4903 i4905

 

i4908Opposites.

i4909

i4914Another sunday morning flea market with cute puppies!

i4915 i4918Later that weekend, lunch at my uncles place. Checking out the pictures of our boat trip some weeks ago.

Coburg. Next roll. Kentmere 400 in Xtol.

Sign on the left says “Frankonia! Apprentice stabs cousin to death at party!” So thats whats going down here. Were pretty mad people. Well, not really.

What an adventure!

Random

My mother in the studio. Thinking of stuff.

Gerhard was busy with some car repair stuff.

Some random frames.

i4922Guys taking some snaps of two parked Audi R8.

i4925 i4927 i4929

i4931Brake fluid, pants and shirts, thrown away like regular waste. People suck sometimes.

i4932Yeah, you guessed right. Acros 100, Xtol, Hexar AF.

i4935 i4936Wondering what they are looking at…

i4938Skater guy with sweet skater scars.

i4939i4940A poster for the annual academy of fine arts students exhibition. This was actually just a reminder because i was way to lazy to use my phone.

i4942 i4943 i4945-2This roll of film has seen the inside of a camera before.
i4947 i4948Challenge accepted!

i4949 i4953Stopped by at fotomax for some camera strap, all they got are these sun-sniper kind of things. Pretty usable for your big DSLR, but damn ugly. This guy is testing some equipment right outside the store.

i4955Südstadt, my favorite greengrocer.

i4956 i4959I wonder what i looks like from inside.

i4960 i4964Finishing the roll.

i4966-2So the other day i felt like shooting some street with the Rolleiflex. Since i recently bought some rolls of Efke 25 i loaded the little gem and went for a walk. Sry about the border across the frame in the top area, that is from an obviously misaligned glass i put on top of the negatives. Helps a lot with flatness though.

i4969-525ASA shoots surprisingly well hand-held.

i4974-10 i4975-11Ok, not so street-ish, but wow at those tones the efke produces!

i4976-12

i4989b

Back to 35mm. Back to Leica. Except that it is not the M6. Actually it was a rather impulsive decision, but the other day i spotted a really good deal for a recently CLA’d M2 with a superb black Zeiss C-Biogon. I immediately thought to myself “this is the real thing!” and just went for it. Since i got the Hexar i dont use the M6 as frequently as i used to, so i thought, why not give it a try. (Plus the deal was really really good. The body is a real user but with fresh service, the lens is new)

i4985Oh yeah and another thing: Since i ran out of Xtol i was in the mood of playing around with something new, so i bought a bottle of Kodak HC-110 which here in Europe comes as very highly concentrated syrup in a 1l bottle. It is recommended to make a 1+3 stock solution for better handling. That means, it is way easier to measure and pour correctly from A to B. Plus your bottles and scales will be easier to clean because the stock does not stick to it like the syrup does (it really does, feels like maple syrup or honey so make sure to clean all your stuff really good to get rid of possible residues from the developer.)

i4986So these are some frames from the M2 with C-Biogon, Fuji Acros in HC-110. People dancing for some reason.

i4991Cute little fellow.

i4992 i5009 i5003Made me think of this. Nice tattoos though!

i5005So we had some lunch when these guys passed by.

i4979HC-100: great tones. C-Biogon: great rendering and smoooooth bokeh.

i5002 i4977 i4995Well heres another story: as mentioned above, i applied at Nuremberg University. Not for Engineering but for Design (with photography being a major subject ofc). I have had this crazy idea in my mind about becoming a designer/photographer/writer/whatever creative stuff since a long time, but somewhere along the way it got lost. Until now. So as i said, at some point, i told myself “just go and try it, you have nothing to lose. They could turn you down, thats all. PS: Youre a pussy if you dont do it!” It was back in march when i took this decision and so i had some time to select some pieces, write some documentation stuff and design my portfolio (which i never did before). I handed in the folder in may.

perlen4erSince im not necessarily an award-winning drawer, i put together a collection of small series of both analog and digital pictures i took in the last years. This here is a cycle of 4 abstract water stills i took about a year ago.

seatbelt1 seatbelt2More abstract stuff from another series.

seatbelt3All the analog stuff i handed in is featured in previous blog posts: some street shots from Nuremberg train station and from Paris as well as some stills from Prien am Chiemsee and from a walk in the woods. So im not gonna show that again.

i4978About a month later i recieved a letter from the college saying that my portfolio was approved and that i was invited to the qualifying examinations in july. That was when i slowly started getting nervous. So july came and i took the tests, here is some of the stuff we had to do. Day 1: written exam, designing a bookcover and drawing a storyboard.

i4990Day 2: Photography (actually we had to choose between drawing, photography and filming. Not so hard choice for me). Prof Jostmeier gave us a quick early morning briefing on the topic and the time schedule in the photo studio. I was torn between throwing up from anxiety and the urge to document this. We were all just nervous as hell but somehow i still wanted to capture this moment, knowing that it would be very intense and unique. Well, for me at least. Its always personal after all.

i4998So after several hours of shooting we returned to the college and had some time for selecting, post production and for writing a down some lines about our approach on the topic.

i4916The topic for photographers was “Zeitspiegel//Spiegelzeit” which means something like “time//reflection”. These are three of the images i submitted.

i4925 i4998i5000Girls viewing their portfolios. i5000 btw. Way to go. After we had finished the drawing/picture taking/filming part, we got back our folders and waited for an individual talk with one of the professors. In the end, those two days went pretty good and its again time to wait for a response. If you have questions about the whole process of application or about specific tasks, feel free to drop me a note.

i4984Ok, back to normal life. Later that day, i had a look at the annual student exhib i mentioned before. As always, very interesting stuff and great people.

i5006 i5010Guy taking pictures of some of the installations.

i4987 i4996Time to lay back and just relax. Finally!

i5016Last roll with the M6. Ektar, labdev. Its like in the wild nature.

i5023 i5034Whats wrong?

i5046 i5048Some stuff going on at Nuremberg castle.

i5049i5019 i5022

i5054Some regular bw again. M2, Kentmere 100 in Rodinal.
[audiotube id=”jDqRN9RbzIc” time=”no”]

i5055These papers looked kind of scientific, weird deja-vu.

i5057We decided to have a small barbecue. Dont mind the very blown-out highlights here, still fighting with crappy Silverfast SE.

i5059I live on the 2nd floor, so i just dropped a cable out of the living room window to power my macbook (old Simpsons episodes!) Well, its just a very dull backyard…

i5060 i5064 i5067Hey buddy!

i5069 i5071I remember that on this day, it was incredibly hot outside, like 35°C. I walked around for half an hour in the sun and was completely exhausted. She probably felt the same.

i5074 i5077This was about those 2 guys inside the store checking out some instruments. Worked out great. Yeah.

i5079 i5081 i5083 i5085Probably the best thing to do on this day.

i5091Some more Acros stuff.

i5095So the summer came and it came like a punch in the face! We decided to spend that sunday at the lake.

i5097Still funny that some people didnt seem to care about the outside temps at all.

i5099At the annual Classical Open Air, which takes place in the nice spacious Luitpoldhain park here in Nuremberg. Sun was already gone and there i stood with my 100 ISO film.

i5100That was around 8pm, most people had occupied the place hours ago. Acros rules here.

i5102I remember when i was at the Open Air some years ago with my girflfriend at the time, it was not that crowded and we could easily find a comfy place for our blanket an hour before the start. Here, everything you see from the foreground to the trees in the very background is actually people listening to the concert. Ridiculously overrun. The week after i read in the paper that there were some 75k people in the audience that night.

i51041/8th.

i5105There was a glitch in the matrix.

i5106 i5107Let the nature in!

i5113 i5114Some weird stuff again at the train station.

i5115 i5117This one is about nothing specific i think.

i5119Curious kid.

i5121 i5123 i5124 i5125

i5128The next weekend, Chris joined our little hangout behind the building. This is the smoothest roll of Delta 100 i shot since ever. M2/Zeiss again.

i5130Spent the day at the outdoor bath. I really love Delta in HC-100 at the moment, it just gives some exceptional tones imo.

i5131

i5133Later that day, i went to this years showman/singer/songwriter festival, called “Bardentreffen”. That means hundreds of musicians and artists, music, shows and food all over the place.

i5135 i5136 i5137 i5138

i5139i5140Somebody had too much chili.

i5141 i5142So after one more day at the pool, i went to the festival again to take some more snapshots. when i later looked at the negatives i noticed that the lens (actually the filter in front of it, came with the M2), had gotten very smudgy from sun lotion or something, which added a nice summilux-like glowing look to about 12 frames of that roll.

i5143 i5144 i5145Kid playing the violin + glowing highlights from the dirty lens.

i5147 i5148 i5150Some musicians passed by. I wonder what they needed that for. Probably to party hard.

i5153 i5154i5155The only acceptable Mini. End of glowing frames here.

i5151Some small pieces of art my mother sold recently.

i5158 i5159 i5161 i5162Police freshmen getting in touch with the people.

i5163

i5164I did some adjustments on my hybrid workflow as well, meaning that i changed my scanning method and got rid of those toyish plastic canon film strip holders. I cut some cardboard masks to be able to place the strips correctly and directly on the ground glass. Then i put a plate of glass on top which i got from some picture framing. The results are decent and also slightly sharper then with the film holder. Plus i can do this: digital contact prints of the entire roll (PS stitched of course). This is pretty neat to learn something about your metering and your general style of shooting. So here is the contact sheet of aboves Delta frames. You can clearly see that frames 14, 28 and 33 are underexposed, 1 and 29 are overexposed. Frames like 4, 11, 13, 15 already show a great tonal range (this is a completely untouched scan). Dirty lens from frames 16 to 27. Since i also did a little more experimenting with the process in Silverfast and the post production in LR and PS, i will probably set up a separate post on this topic the discuss all this stuff in detail. Let me know if youre interested. So whats important here: contact sheets -> great tool to review your work.

Ill make a cut here and push the next 5 rolls to the next post since this one is getting longer and longer.

i4883To conclude this post, a quick still of the new old workhorse.

Oh yeah, the college story. So after another month i finally recieved a letter from the university in august. It said that i made it through the qualification tests and that i have been approved. Some day later i went to the college office and handed in my matriculation files. About a week ago (mid august) i got the universities final confirmation. Wow. This autumn, im going back to college. Not for what is reasonable and appropriate, but for what i love to do.

Fotografien, 1/2013

[audiotube id=”l2JAMnpldE4″ time=”no”]

Hallo hallo, treten Sie näher! Ein paar Neuigkeiten gibts.
–1. Domain: Bin von seblock.de auf sebastianlock.de umgezogen, der Blog ist auf /blog zu erreichen. Darüber soll irgendwann mal eine Art Portfolio und digitale Visitenkarte stattfinden. Auf seblock.de ist zur Zeit noch eine Weiterleitung drin, aber ich denke über kurz oder lang werde ich hier was neues basteln. Vielleicht wieder den blog, welcher damals am Anfang stand. Typografie, Texte, Musik, Webdesign, einzelne Bilder. Da jedoch die Fotografie, hierbei gerade die analoge, eine immer bedeutendere Rolle für mich spielt, gliedere ich diesen Teil komplett hierhin aus. Kompromisslos lässt es sich so besser arbeiten. Hier, clean und schlicht, mit Fokus auf Fotografie und Text, dort, wo auch immer das sein wird, experimentell, inkonsistent und ohne höheren Anspruch.
–2. Blog: Habe die WP-Installation mal geupdated, also so richtig. Im Zuge dessen auch der Wechsel auf twentytwelve. Footer weg, sidebar ran, überflüssiges Zeug weg, fertig. Wünsche für eine neue Hoverfarbe bitte als Hexcode in die Kommentare. Für einige treue Leser bastele ich bald noch ein helles Template.
–3. Fotos: Habe mich entschieden, ab jetzt einzelne Bilder zu zeigen. Ne, war nur Spaß. Diesmal gibt es wieder mal viel Privates, Weihnachten, eine Hochzeit, Pferde und Nürnberg sowieso. Leica M6 und Rolleiflex.

Unterwegs in Nürnberg im letzten Herbst. Versteckte, ruhige Ecken in St. Johannis. Normaler trix in der Flex.
Urlaub. Zur Abwechslung mal richtig schön entspannen, fressen und relaxen, und zwar den ganzen Tag. An dem Abend hier gab es ein richtig schönes Gewitter über dem Meer. Fleißig haben also alle ihre Digicam gezückt und die Wolken angeblitzt. Ich habs mit ein paar Sekunden auf dem Geländer versucht, hätte aber besser werden können.
 
Haha, wie geplant bremst am Strand vor uns quietschend ein Van, raus springt ein Typ mit schwerer Ausrüstung und rennt zum Wasser. Schätze seine Bilder sind recht gut geworden.
Wieder zurück im schönen Nürnberg. Sogar hier wars noch Herbst.
Warst beim Karstadt? Ja. Ich a.
Random Straßenzeug.
 
Beim Fotomax vorbeigeschaut. Der einzige Laden hier in der Gegend, der so ein bisschen Analogkram hat. Natürlich viel zu teuer, aber wo gibt’s schon vertretbare Preise.
Stimmt das so?
Acros hier übrigens. Glaub der letzte für 2012.
Mal wieder irgendeine Demo in der Innenstadt.
 
Licht
 
Scheisse komponiert, aber das Licht war grandios.
 
 
Kunstlicht vs. Tageslicht. Trix ab hier.
 
Touristen
Die Shuttles gibt’s mittlerweile vermehrt in der Innenstadt.
 
Sollte ich nochmal sauber scannen, hier wäre auch ein Abzug bestimmt geil (Zum Scannen später mehr).
Juhu, einer von den gefühlten 5 Fotografen, die ich im Jahr unterwegs ausmache.
 
 
 
So direkt an der Pegnitz stell ichs mir auch sehr schön vor.
 
Die Sonne sank immer weiter, ergo wurde das Licht immer besser. Solche Abende hats viel zu selten eigentlich.
Ich hab also einfach ein wenig gewartet, was so kommt…
Das Licht fiel so flach und grell, im Gegenlicht war es unmöglich, was zu sehen.
 
Südstadt <3
Kurztrip nach Prien am Chiemsee, eine perfekte Auszeit über ein Wochenende. Das kleine Hotel war ein absoluter Glücksgriff, direkt an der Uferpromenade gelegen, nette Leute, geniales Essen. Meine Empfehlung!
Warum auch immer, ich hatte statt trix tmax mitgenommen. Der ist mir bei Naturaufnahmen aber sowieso lieber.
Das Wetter war eigentlich grau und nieselig. Scheisse für Farbe, perfekt für SW!
 
Olga auf der Promenade.
Dann kam die Dämmerung.
Zurück nach Nürnberg, zurück zu trix.
Auszugsfeier bei Darius und Stephan.
 
Darius
 
Depressive Sonntage. Mistwetter, tmax. Werde ich trotzdem mal drucken.
 
 
 
Andi und Irina haben geheiratet, ich durfte Fotos machen.
 
Der Trauzeuge.
Was mich die Analogfotografie bis jetzt gelehrt hat: # Das Licht ist immer genau richtig, so wie es ist. # Es sind die kleinen Dinge. # Schnell sein. # Nicht zu viele Gedanken machen.
 
Let se Party begin!
 
Nach dem Standesamt erstmal lecker Essen! Was für ein Zufall das Foto hier, Olga und ich haben zufällig den günstigsten Parkplatz gewählt und waren als erste vor Ort. Als ich aus dem Fenster den Ausblick erkunde, kommt gerade der Rest.
 
Die Turtelstimmung schlägt über!
So lahm Fotomax bei analogen Sachen ist, so klasse dafür bei digitalem Kram. Obwohl eigentlich nicht mehr im Verleih, haben sie mir ein 35er für den ganzen Tag zu einem guten Preis gegeben.
 
 
Jetzt also zum Thema Scannen. Bis jetzt scannte ich 35er Streifen immer mit dem Standard Canoscan Kram. Ging fix und hat schon gepasst. Die Negative hier (trix @ 1600) habe ich allerdings dämlicherweise unterbelichtet. Dementsprechend mies waren die Scans. Als ich mir die Streifen am nächsten Tag nochmal anschaute, entdeckte ich allerdings trotz Unterbelichtung richtig viele Details auf den Negativen. Ich denk mir, scheiss drauf, scanne ich nochmal, for ze lulz mit Silverfast. Drehe ein wenig hier und da und siehe da, richtig brauchbar die Bilder. Klar, Schatten recht gruselig, aber sonst richtig gut. Ab sofort also Silverfast. Dauert zwar deutlich! länger, aber die Ergebnisse sind, gerade bei schwierigen Lichtverhältnissen (also quasi immer) auch deutlich besser. Ich war so frei und habe hier mal nen Vergleich hochgeladen. Links CanoScan mit “Macht-der-schon-Automatik”, rechts Silverfast mit ein paar Einstellungen. Habe also den gesamten Hochzeitsfilm sowie die Weihnachtssachen die jetzt kommen nochmal einen Tag lang sauber gescannt und bin zufrieden.
 
Auch trix @ 1600, verwackelt. Mehr Schärfe=Mehr Stimmung?
 
 
Nach der Reihe wurde den Glücklichen gratuliert.
 
Hier noch zwei der “offiziellen” Aufnahmen. Habe auch noch alle digital gemacht, für den unwahrscheinlichen Fall, dass die Flex spontan in Flammen aufgeht oder ihr aus Altersschwäche die Linsen *plop* einfach nach vorne rausfallen. Hat aber wieder immer geglänzt, die Gute. Für mich kommt vom Look her kein Digitalzeug ran, ist wohl aber auch viel Einstellungssache. Normaler trix.
Das Paar mit Trauzeuge und Trauzeugin. Sieht man gar nicht so, dass es -100°C hatte.
 
Zurück in Nürnberg, Christkindlesmarkt. Wer sich die Weihnachtsstimmung versauen will, geht da am Wochenende hin. “You dream it we live it”
 
 
 
Ooooooo
Schon wieder Weihnachten, kein Bock auf den Mist.
Gefühlt das einzige Mal, dass auf dem Markt so viel Platz war.
 
Weihnachtsbaum auf der Spitalinsel. Erinnert mich an dieses hier.
Perfektes Beispiel, auch wenn das Motiv nicht viel hergibt: Mit CanoAutoScan gab das hier einen weißen Fleck, sonst komplett Schwarz, ungelogen. Trotz der Unterbelichtung ist aber total viel Information vorhanden, man muss diese nur ordentlich rausholen. Was mir eindrucksvoll gezeigt hat, das beim hybriden Verfahren der Bereich Scanner/Software nicht zu unterschätzen ist.
Olga hat Fotobücher drucken lassen.
Mein Weihnachten.
Weihnachten 1
Vorfreude aufs Essen.
Und Entspannung danach.
Trix meine Perle.
 
Seit Jahren bringe ich die Geschenke immer in einem großen Karton mit und lade anschließend meine Geschenke wieder dort ein. Hat sich bewährt.
 
Schwester und Onkel bei der Bescherung.
 
Andrea hat bei unsrer Mutter geschlafen, also wurde mit Wein nicht gegeizt. Endlich Feiertage.
 
Und noch anner zum Verdaun!
Es sind die kleinen Dinge.
 
 
Zeit, um endlich mal zur Ruhe zu kommen. Messen war tricky hier.
Weihnachten 2, bei Olgas Familie in Neustadt.
Und wieder Geschenke auspacken. Olga freut sich über ne etwas groß geratene Teetasse von meinem Onkel.
Ich freu mich auch.
Das Festmahl, und das war es wirklich.
 
Extra noch mal eines mit der Flex von der schönen Tafel. Ist noch der trix @ 1600 von der Hochzeit.
Weihnachten 3
Diesmal: Rouladen, dann Nickerchen. Trix @ 1600.
Das einzige Mal im Jahr, dass wir alle zusammen Rommé spielen.
 
 
Habe endlich mal ein Ipad angeschafft. Eigentlich immernoch ein teures Spielzeug, aber vor allem zum Bilder zeigen total genial, endlich kann ich mir sparen, das Macbook mitzuschleppen.
Zwischen den Feiertagen haben Andrea und ich unsere Mutter auf dem Reiterhof besucht. Endlich mal wieder raus aus der Stadt, tut gut.
 
 
Leere Box.
Wir haben ein wenig den Hof erkundet, spektakuläres Licht in der Reithalle. Mal sehen, ob da mal ein Shooting zustande kommt.
