This year’s motto of the 23th Carnival der Kulturen in Bielefeld was Atmosfail – for an environmentally sustainable and fair atmosphere. So beside the beautiful costumes – particularity the stilt walkers were really amazing – there were lots of political statements.
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.
Since weeks I looked forward to this year’s zombie walk. It was great fun last year and I took a lot of awesome photos there. Sadly three days before the walk the shutter of my EOS 70D died and I had to use my old dusty 450D 🙁
However it was a lot of fun and here are some pics of the 7th zombie walk in Bielefeld.
For the 20th time Bielefeld celebrated the Carnival of Cultures. As usual it was a real pleasure to see all those beautiful and fanciful costumes.
This is one of the photos I like most from my first experience with low-key photography (which I had some time ago).
