And up and down. Move your feet to the beat!
I went for a Sumo tournament some time ago. It was interesting and boring at the same time :)
To get one of the highly anticipated tickets I had to get up at 5 am catching the last tickets at 6 am in Asakusa, Tokyo. The Finals were at 6 pm, so 12 hours of constant fighting. Beginning with the bad Sumos until then the Mongolian Yokozunas (two, one for the east and one for the West) finished the tournament.
The funny thing was that in the beginning it was allowed to take pictures just from the side where you could see everything and practice shooting with bad light.
The ritual until fighting for approximately 20 seconds takes about 5 minutes. Here the Sumo prepares for the fight. Collecting all energy he can get out of his body putting it in that one moment when he tries to beat the master.

London – 2010

In a city like London all things are possible. When I travelled to London the first time in 2003 I didn’t really like it that much. Exactly one month ago the old city provided the chance to fall in love to the city most of the people adore.

Guess what I felt in love to the city, too. London is great! It is stylish, fast, never quite and the accent is great compared to the accent spoken by certain people in New York :)

I think there are a lot of cool things to mention about London but the coolest things definitely are the Underground signs in their different sized, colors, shapes and forms. They make the Underground distinctive. And of course the colors are perfect to model the photo as a color key…

Have fun with it!

This bridge is supposed to bring luck if I remember it right… Okay I am a Christian guy and kind of skeptical when something made of wood and stone is supposed to bring luck. Since I was there, there was no point where I could have said thank you, bridge.
But instead the bridge somehow reminds me of these fairytale stories like Alice in wonderland or Narnia. When you pass this bridge and the fog you will immediately be in a strange outer world :). Do you know what I mean? The scene is so… UNREAL!

Besides this I am preparing for my trip to Singapore and Kuala Lumpur and hope to bring you some nice City Shots. Somehow this is my genre. I like it to travel and take photos of cool places all over the world.

Today Brazil is playing. Any guesses?

Roooaaar! Run, be fast otherwise there might be a problem…

If this is what he thinks? I don’t know. The only thing I know is that the white Tiger as seen in the Singapore Zoo is majestic and royal.

Isn’t it interesting that an animal like the tiger can be so beautiful and fascinating whilst being one of the most dangerous animals on this planet? Nature always provides something unexpected. In case of a child it would surely want to cuddle with the Tiger because of it’s squashy coat. The first time he roars the child possibly would never trust a Tiger again…

If you want to particitpate in the Color Key Week tell me about your color key photos uploaded this week. I will comment and look at them!

Thanks to everyone who viewed commented or faved my last pic
www.flickr.com/photos/sprengben/4315145017/
It was viewed more than 60000 times!!!

So again thank you so much!

Todays Pic is no HDR
This time I uploaded a Jellyfish which I "met" in Osaka. Somehow these fish are kind of fearing. I don't know why but to me they are scary. What do you think?
If you are ever able to go to Osaka visit the aquarium. It's not cheap but it's really worth the money.
You can see animals you haven't seen before plus you can touch fish and even a Ray!!!
