OTWTW - On The Way To Work

When I started to learn the technique side of photography I decided on a project. It was simple. Make at least one image every day while riding my bicycle to work. The place was awesome and so was the road to the work-place. A small village in Weßling (South Munich, Germany) and I was working at the German Aerospace Centre. I was extremely fortunate to see the Alps on a good day and they were an hours drive away from where we lived. I changed the work place for a couple of years to Göttingen and there too the project continued. The goal was simple - refine technique with every image taken. Study them and learn from mistakes. This started in 2001. Using film was the only option. I slowly moved from 35mm to Mamiya 645 1000s, then to Pentax 6x7 and eventually 4x5 large format. Here are some of the images made during this project which went on for about 6 years. My commute to work has never been as satisfying. And I doubt if it ever will be.
