Some Totally Unrelated Images From Germany

September 21, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Many of you know that I was out in Cologne, Germany this week for the big Photokina trade show. Every two years, camera companies bring all their newest stuff to a big convention center and I stay up for a week straight trying to try and write about all of it. It's both great and horrendously terrible at the same time. Most of the pictures I took while I was there were actually of cameras, but I did take a few pictures I don't think are quite as boring as watching C-Span on mute. Here they are.

Photokina 2012 Leica Party

The Leica party was by far the fanciest part of the festivities. They kept it dark and foggy in there for most of the night before turning on the lights to reveal the gallery they had curated. It was cool to see a Gursky print from up close.

Outside the Leica party. It looks like I added some crazy processing, but all I did was boost the exposure half a stop in Lightroom. Filtered lights sitting right on the ground make the texture really pronounced.

Here's Dan eating some sort of bean salad on a fancy couch.

Eagle One of the exhibits had eagles flying across a courtyard for everyone to take pictures of.

Look at this majestic bastard.

And that's it. If you want to see other photos I took that are painfully boring, go here
