Yesterday someone hopefully well-meaning bestowed 200 additional visits on my counter, which came in very quickly around 10am CET. As I want to thank him/her for his/her assiduity I want to ask as well very politely to refrain from things like that. It’s true, that I do hope for a little more resonance here, but fake is no solution. Definitely not! Thanks.
Good luck to everybody this week in Biberach!
The ‘Daily Five’ of the past are up on Flickr by now. Click to start the slideshow. You’ll find a play/pause button in the lower left, a fullscreen symbol in the lower right corner.
“Have a cup of something, sit back and enjoy…”
That’s, what I wrote in my last post and then even put on the main page. The words gave credit to the, with which I am quite happy by now.
It’s, what I do sometimes. On my iPad for instance I swipe the image almost to fullscreen, just as big that I still can see the names below the images.
It’s the grayscale thing that I do enjoy so much.
When editing I sometimes have to bid farewell to the beautiful colors a little wistfully. Nevertheless and bravely I always do so knowing how rich the greyscale results will be. And they always are.
Guess, that the sensitivity for this has waned a bit among younger people. They probably think that fifty is a large number. But.
For me it’s very rewarding to deal with that topic all day long by now, and so I maybe overshot a bit with my enthusiastic words, which I pulled back afterwards due to the possibility to get them misinterpreted as arrogant or uncomfy stuff like that.
But if you do it, the ‘cup-and-sit’ thing, you’ll possibly discover the ‘enjoy’ part as well…
Monica Puig, Heather Watson, Sam Stosur, Elena Vesnina, Alison Riske.
What’s going on with them?
Ah, yes, of these players I added some pics to yesterday.
They are from.
Some nice memories of that not unimportant city and my stay on a cozy and comfy camping site there.
I always will hear the loudspeaker announcement at that tram station near the tournament area.
“Droits de l’homme.”
Which is french for ‘human rights’.
How nice the idea to have it done by a child’s voice, probably the son or daughter of an employee.
Interval: 10sec. Enjoy, swipe or stop by holding mouse over image.
Errani . Cepelove . Golubic . Sharapova . Lottner . Pliskova . Stosur . Bertens . Jankovic . Wöhr . Van Uytvanck . Gibbs .
just added some navigation links near the relevant image sections so that one can jump easily from one to another now. Spent hours with deleting old stuff on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Youtube, Instagram. Will try to apply all the lessons I’ve (hopefully) learned in the meantime on the presentation there as well. On Youtube there is nothing left as the ‘Practice Court’ files. It probably will be fun to start thinking about some more elaborated video cutting in the upcoming…
The ball toss at the serving procedure always has something heroic or mythical. It’s the most ‘Swanlake’ part of the game. The player frozen for a second as statue of (women’s) liberty. If I would have known before, how well this fits into my experiments with CG-postproduction, I would have taken more such photos. But there are some of them remaining to surprise myself with the results of editing…

Good morning everybody! Have a nice day!
