“The Tree hugging is over”  is an ongoing series which, so far, explored various mountainous regions of western Austria  & eastern Switzerland.

The Tree-Markers indicate a Land Owner’s property and trees thereof, by using various colours & signage.  These trees are meant to be cut down for wood & environmental  restoration-, as well as commercial purposes.

Markers and colours used are meant to be seen! The more intense & contrary a colour is, the greater the effect of the contrast to the corresponding backgrounds.

The images exhibited are part of a larger group of images of different colour groups. They have been photographed with ordinary negative film-material, creating a beautiful grain & colours.

Get off my Property! – Aha vu mim Grund!

 

“Get of my Property!” or as we say in dialect within the western austrian region of Vorarlberg,         “Aha vu mim Grund!”, is an ongoing series showing various ‘property markers’, indicating the specific owners for each property or land, by using different colors and color-codings or shapes and materials for the actual markers. These color codes are ‘meant to be seen’, therefore the paint or spray painted colors used, sometimes harshly contrast against the natural backdrop.

The 4 Images below are part of a much larger group of images, not to be shown here, of different ‘color groups’, which are shot with cheap color negative film material, producing a beautiful grain and even more beautiful colors …

Porsche 911 T

 

With the support of a happy Porsche owner and a stunning Backdrop, to be found within the western austrian region of Vorarlberg, i managed to take a couple of Pictures of this quite exquisite 1973 Porsche 911T in Gemini Blue. This Model is one of the last ones of the air-cooled “911 F-Series”, also called the “Ur-Elfer”, built until 1973. Originally the 911 has been introduced as the 901 in Fall of 1963 at the IAA  in Frankfurt and until 1964 only 82 Exemplars have been manufactured under that Model name. After a legal dispute with the French Manufacturer Peugeot, Porsche had to change the model name, which really didn’t affect the beauty of this car negatively whatsoever…

Bimbos

 

… a rather special Music Venue, located in western Austria near Feldkirch, closed it’s doors. Open for ‘only’ 7 years, it already could be called an ‘institution’.  Otherwise no further comments necessary, as one can see below.

Welcome, to Marc Lins Blog

 

I decided to use one rather specific entry image for my new Blog, quasi a symbolic gesture to the nature of Blog posting, images which someone once called ‘Kaerchography’, following the name of the popular Manufacturer of high pressure water cleaning Equipment, which i used to create the Typo image below.
