and an art recipe.
Egypt trip project: Packing a suitcase only takes a few minutes for me. But then the question: What should I take with me to paint? I choose different paper, charcoal pencils, pastels, etc. And another fixative for the drawings… And then: During the 12 days of vacation I didn’t draw a single line – apart from signing the hotel bill.
But that’s ok. My main focus was anyway on the sea. And I don’t know yet how to deal with these strong underwater impressions. Not even have an idea how to start. So I’ll let that sink in a bit first.
I’ve visited Egypt several times, including Hurghada, but that was many years ago. Since I had already seen a lot, I only made a few trips this time and instead enjoyed the sun and the sea.
But I did some other things and I would like to present a small selection of photos. In another posting, I would like to introduce another series. Then it’s about the sky. And maybe I’ll show you a few more snapshots from the stay.
The recipe: well-pressed abstracts, some sparkling surrealism, well-tempered constructivism, and a strong dash of calligraphy essence. And then, this is important – our old friend Mr. James B. always made a point of it – stirred, not shaken. Finally, a dash of Dao and/or Zen, whatever is available. And then you can take off. Enjoy!

The main aim of this series was to improve my technique in composition and construction. The photos have not been edited with photoshop but were mostly cropped at the edges, some are also image sections.

I never learned photography, so it’s more like snapshots. It was also about capturing moods.
Once again I didn’t want to miss out on a ride on a quad and I wanted to combine it with photography. That’s why I didn’t ride with a group but went solo. Even if only a few photos of it are worth anything, I got to know little Ahmed, the son of a Bedouin family.
