ZWEISIMMEN - A CLOSER LOOK

My trip to Zweisimmen continued...




When I am on trips, I usually like to have a global appreciation of the place I am visiting, but I also like to look into the details. I always search for the little or hidden things that might not be visible at first glimpse...

I like to say that my camera is an eye-opener. Taking
pictures forces you to be more attentive and not lazy. In order to take interesting pictures you have to continuously be on the search for a good subject to photograph. In that way, your eyes tend to scan everything as if you were an eagle and not miss anything.





Being the happy owner of a camera, I am constently developing my flair and have now a very photographic vision. When I go out I always appreciate landscapes and views depending on their photogeny. I have a lense in my brain.

Well, while walking through Zweisimmen (post 1, post 2 & post 3) that's exactly what I did. I dissecated piece of land, corner, building, etc... and found a few jewels that are very representative of Berner Oberland. So, enjoy!








To be continued next week....

  2. I really love your "closer look", thanks for sharing your vision of this beautiful area with us!
    And I perfectly understand the "lense in your brain", I feel the same. A friend of mine who happens to be a photographer once told me that I had "the eye", he's an indonesian so he told it in bahasa indonesia and it sounded just lovely... anyway he meant the same thing than you. I think this is quite a rare gift, and I'm not sure for me, but you definitly have it!

  3. Beautiful clicks. The copper vessel with water dripping from the sides is just divine. Love the shapes and textures of the bark.
    A treat for the eyes!

  4. I love the feeling of these photos - I don't know how you evoked it, but they have an "old world" sense to them. The copper vessel and the texture of the woods - just wonderful.

  11. ELRA: Thanks a lot! I am still using my NIKON D40 with the original 18-55mm lenses. I'd love a new camera and different lenses, but I don't have the money to buy them...

  20. Your photos are very beautiful and interesting Rosa; you are right that taking pics forces one to be more attentive but I think they are also very revealing of the personality of the photographer behind the lenses.
