People in different life situations. Also lots of portrait pictures.

EJC 2016

The European Juggling Convention (EJC) is the biggest jugging event in the world. It started quite small with 11 people back in 1978 in Brighton, England and grew up over the years (the biggest EJC was in München, Germany with about 7200 participants).
This summer the EJC 2016 took place in Almere, Netherlands and it was the first time I joined in. I was pretty much excited about all those friendly, beautiful people from all across Europe with these awesome juggling skills from club juggling over hula hoop playing to stilt walking (or even playing soccer on stilts). Here is a small excerpt from the tons of photos I took.

Portraits of the carnival

Since 19 years the “Carnival der Kulturen” (carnival of cultures) takes place in Bielefeld. It is always a colorful procession with a lot of creative and beautiful costumes and a good occasion for shooting nice pictures.
This year I took my 70-300 mm lens with me and made a lot of portrait shots.

You can find more information about the Carnival der Kulturen on their homepage and more photos on my post from last year’s carnival.

Procesión del Silencio

Relax! Although this a little bit threatening looking guy seems to be a member of the Ku-Klux-Klan I can tell you not to worry: It’s just a catholic (well maybe he is a little bit more catholic than the usual catholic…). And the stick in his hand is not a baseball bat but a large candle (maybe used for exorcism – who knows).

I took this photo during the Procesión del Silencio with takes place in Madrid every year on Eastern.
