Fotoeins Friday in Oberammergau: Lang selig Erben

In this month’s series, I portray images of some of the “Lüftlmalerei” (house murals) in the Bavarian alpine town of Oberammergau, 21 km northwest from Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

A mural graces the east side of the Lang selig Erben company building at Dorfstrasse 20. Lang selig Erben is one of the last remaining wood-carving workshops maintaining the handwork tradition going back to 1775.

I made the image above on 29 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the following settings: 1/1000-sec, f/11, ISO1000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-i8l.

In this month’s series, I portray images of some of the “Lüftlmalerei” (house murals) in the Bavarian alpine town of Oberammergau, 21 km northwest from Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

A mural with various figures covers the entire front face of the building which houses the local offices of the Bavarian state forestry service (Bayerische Staatsforsten) at Ettaler Strasse 3.

I made the image above on 29 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/13, ISO1000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-i8w.

Fotoeins Friday in Oberammergau: Little Red Riding Hood

In this month’s series, I portray images of some of the “Lüftlmalerei” (house murals) in the Bavarian alpine town of Oberammergau, 21 km northwest from Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

The story of Little Red Riding Hood is painted at the children’s home at Ettaler Strasse 48. The story was first published in German as Rottkäppchen by the Grimm Brothers in 1812 in their compilation “Kinder- und Hausmärchen” (Children’s and Household Tales).

I made the image above on 29 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the following settings: 1/250-sec, f/10, ISO1000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-i8h.

Fotoeins Friday in Oberammergau: Hansel & Gretel

In this month’s series, I portray images of some of the “Lüftlmalerei” (house murals) in the Bavarian alpine town of Oberammergau, 21 km northwest from Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

The story of Hansel and Gretel is painted at the children’s home at Ettaler Strasse 41. The painted mural is visible from the street, as I wasn’t interested in entering the private property without permission. The Hansel and Gretel story was first published in German by the Grimm Brothers in 1812 in their compilation “Kinder- und Hausmärchen” (Children’s and Household Tales).

I made the image above on 29 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/13, ISO1000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-i85.

Garmisch-Partenkirchen: you glorious beaut (LAPC)

Above/featured: Garmisch-Partenkirchen train station, with the characteristic red of Deutsche Bahn’s regional trains – 27 Feb 2017 (HL, 6D1).

I’m pleased to present one of my favourite spots to visit in Germany. Located in southern Bavaria near the international border with Austria, Garmisch-Partenkirchen (GAP)* provides ample opportunities for year-round exploration with ample hiking in summer and skiing in winter. GAP also provides a convenient base to visit the Mittenwald area, Oberammergau, and Tirol across the border in Austria.

I’ve stayed in GAP four times: 2002, 2011, 2017, and 2018; I’m kinda fond of Biohotel Bavaria. Next are 10 spots in and around the GAP.
