H0 goes photo

We have started a series of H0-projects over on Come to Life.

My personal H0 project is the PAPERminis project. PAPERminis is really differnet from other H0 projects I have come by.

That does not keep me from doing other photos with H0 figures. Here is one I wanted to show you over here.

Wir haben eine Serie von H0-Projekten drüben auf Come to Life.

Mein persönliches H0-Projekt sind die PAPERminis. PAPERminis sind ganz anders als die anderen H0 Bilder, die mir begegnet sind.

Das hält mich aber nicht davon ab, auch andere H0 Bilder zu machen und Euch hier zu zeigen.

PAPERminis No. 4: The Boat ride goes on

The boat ride around the swimming dock inspired more images.
Die Bootsfahrt um die Schwimmplattform hat mehr Bilder inspiriert.


I like taking images of fuel pumps that are left alone in some spot and are not in use anymore. There is something odd about finding them in strange places.

Here is one I found on the Lofoten, summer 2013.

Road trip around Iceland in 2012

I know I have linked this Video before. But I think it wasn't the best day to do it. Not too many payed attention to blogs on xmas day.

In 2012 we took a tour around Iceland - the ring road + extras, for once. Here is the video we made of it. Full version, just not full resolution. Sit back and enjoy.

PAPERminis No. 3: Boat ride

There will be time until summer. Most sailboats are still safely put away, as are the bikinis and swim shorts. But let me invite you to a virtual boat ride.

Bis der Sommer kommt, dauert es noch eine Weile. Die meisten Segelboote sind noch sicher verstaut, genau wie die Bikinis und Badehosen. Aber lasst mich Euch auf einen virtuellen Bootstrip einladen.

The golden Arch

The surfer crowd that was using the evening sun to be out on the ocean was presenting us with perfect golden archs of spray in the light of the setting sun.

Cold Surfer's Fun

The location of Unstad is famous for great surfing conditions. When we spend a day and a night there it was horribly stormy but the wind was coming from the wrong direction. The surfes were batteling the situation. But they were having fun, nonetheless.

Here is one of the guys we met there in the afternoon. I love the old school look of that board!

PAPERmini N0. 2: Construction Time

The construction of a diner. A story begins.

The End of a Roof

This old building in Unstad, Lofoten, was presenting a state of decay that was truely photoworthy.

PAPERminis No. 1:

Meine H0-Bilder werde ich unter dem Titel "PAPERminis" erstellen. Die Hintergründe/Untergründe/Welten sind gezeichnet und gemalt. Die Figuren spielen damit die Hauptrolle in einer Welt aus Papier.

Meine Materialien werden dabei abwechseln und mal arbeite ich in Farbe, mal monochrom.

Ich habe schon ein wenig vorgearbeitet und eine ganze Serie von Zeichnungen und Skizzen erstellt, die ich jetzt nach und nach mit Figuren-Leben fülle und zeigen werde.

My H0-images will be presented under the title "PAPERminis". The backgrounds/"undergrounds"/"worlds" are sketched and painted. The figures therefore play the lead roll in a world made of paper.

My materials will differ and I will work in color as well as in monochrome.

I have pre-worked a little and created a series of sketches and images that I will fill with life by and by now and bring to you.

Kleppstad in the evening

We spent some time on the campground in Kleppstad, Lofoten, and got to see these evening moments in fine detail. More images will follow, of course. Including a few time lapse sequenzes.

Photographer's Image

We sometimes end up in each others pictures. This is on the far end of Henningsvaer, Lofoten, between the fish drying racks.

Boat House

Returning into the harbour of Kabelvag after the boat ride to the Trollfjord.

Eye contact

The gull was riding along the side of the boat nicely and very close. I caught the moment that the sun was reflecting in the eye and the wings were perfectly placed infront of the background.

Sailor in white

Riding a boat through the fjords results in great birding opportunities since the gulls love to ride the wind and the waves of the boat and kept following us around. Standing on the back of the boat we had great views of them and were taking images at really close distance.

Into the Trollfjord

We did take the obligatory boat ride into the trollfjord. It was a perfectly sunny day and we enjoyed it greatly.

Leading Lines

The bay of Kabevag had this beautiful spot for us to hang out at. There were lots of boats tied off in the bay. The ropes chaining them up made a motive I could not resist and the drama of the weather made it nicely moody.

Dreamy light

The night falls over a bay near Kabevag, Lofoten. I tried a more dramatic approach on the image to try and capture the mood of the scene as it was. What do you think?

Die Nacht bricht über eine Bucht bei Kabevag auf den Lofoten herein. Ich habe mich für einen dramatischeren Eindruck des Bildes entschieden um den Eindruck der Szene vollkommen einzufangen.

A boat of former times

This old rowboat was stranded on the bank of the fjord where we found it.

Greetings sent by the summer

Traveling the Lofoten we spottet this cart overflowing with watercress.

Golden Morning

This photograph was taken on a golden morning in the beginning of december. Setting my white balance to shady instead of sunny inside the camera made the morning light shine even more.
