This is a research on creating landscape photography on plant subjects. Spring is blooming and high is the temptation of shooting single, static, wonderful objects like flowers and buds. However, where is the photographer interpretation in reproducing single objects? The creation of floral landscapes pushes the photographer to look for shape repetition, pattern development, light focusing, background uniformity, series building and contrast search. Below the results.

Well, I am only a photographer, not a music director, and I regret I will never lead such an awesome group of instruments. This concert of Lucerne Jazz Orchestra was at the Mehrspur in Zurich, one week ago. Don’t miss their amazing performances and pass by Mehrspur when you are in Zurich: free (!!!) jazz (!!!) music every Friday! Gratis and quality music don’t come often in one package …
