photo walk: green


Everytime I start to a new photo walk I consider several themes and choose one before I’m out of the door. Everytime I doubt finding enough motives, but then I see the first thing and next to it the second. Suddenly everywhere pops something up. Like yesterday, when I chose ‚green‘ as my theme for the walk. I really doubted, that I would find much more than plants, but I forgot how colorful Berlin is. There were green doors, green graffitis, green shop signs and some more. Within an hour I had over 40 different motives together. I think, when you choose to shoot one theme, the brain focuses mainly on finding fitting things automatically. It’s like looking for Waldo. The brain is trained to search for a red-white striped thingy and blends everything else out. It’s amazing, what you can find with this technic.

Somewhere along the way an old man asked: ‚Do you take a photo of everything?‘ ‚No‘ I said ‚today just everything that’s green.‘ Sounds a little bit crazy, right? The man looked a little irritated till I explained, that I do photo walks with a theme to train my photographic eye and the use of my camera. We talked on for a while. When I walked on I had to smile. Yes, it sounds crazy taking photos of things, that are green. But it’s the best training I can think of and I found the most fun and beautiful things looking for little details on the photo walks, that most people will overlook.


















My very first photo walk was about ‘white‘. Colors are a very easy start to do a photo walk, because you train your eyes to look for everything and on unusual places. Therefore I started with several color themed photo walks back then:
white | blue | yellow | color contrast | soft colors | I need colors

You can see how my photography style evolved over the years in big parts thanks to those photo walks. Find more photo walks here.

This is such an amazing color combination: white, black & pink. It’s classy, fresh & modern at the same time. I think it would be perfect for a brand, because the pink is a real eye-catcher.


have a simply beautiful weekend

Why always choose something special when it comes to color combinations? Why not the basic colors, that every child likes to draw with: yellow, red, green and blue. It’s such a fun combination.

A powerful and sytlish color combination: orange & grey. The grey brings out the orange even more. It almost seems to shine bright from the photos like a light and gives you a feeling of warmth and comfort. Perfekt for the upcoming cold season.

have a powerful weekend
