Eingeladen beim Meister

Scroll down for English version

 

 

Gestern waren wir bei der Familie eines Grillwerkers eingeladen (http://www.die-grillwerker.at/). Dort wurden wir mit gegrillte Feigen, hausgemachter Sauce und Salat zum Start verköstigt. Das Hauptgericht war ein Hühner-Marillenspieß mit einer Beeren Ingwersauce und dazu gab es gegrillte Zuchini. Ich habe eine kleine Fotoreportage zur Entstehung gemacht, aber wie gut das ganze wirklich geschmeckt, kann ich hier nicht mit Worten Ausdrücken. Vielen Dank nochmal an die Familie Vacha

festival portraits Hontianska paráda – Hrušov – Slovakia

Scroll down for English version

 

 

Včera sme sa zúčastnili Hrušovského festivalu, Hontianska paráda.Je to festival tradičnej slovenskej kultúry, remesiel a umenia.Nevedeli sme, či tam budeme môcť fotiť a ako sa dohovoríme s miestnymi, ale predsa som si zobral kameru so sebou.Už po 10 minútach, sme vedeli, že je to správne miesto na portréty ľudí.S pomocou mojej priateľky Michaely, som mal možnosť urobiť pár skvelých fotiek, zaujímavých ľudí.Rozprávali sme sa s viacerými a všetci boli skutočne veľmi priateľskí a milí, obzvlášť jeden (Ladislav), ktorý ma pozval na panáka a kofolu.Na budúci rok tam pôjdeme určite aspoň na dva dni, pretože je tam naozaj čo vidieť.

Yesterday we went to Hrušov for a huge Slovakian traditional festival. I was not sure if we would talk to people about portraits there, but I took my camera with me. It took me 10 minutes to see that this is the place to be for portraits. With the help of my girlfriend Michaela we were able to capture some great moments and faces. We talked to the people and everybody was super nice and friendly, even one of them (Ladislav) invited us for a shot and Kofola (a great Slovakian cola, if you are in CZ or SK you gotta try that). Next time we have to stay for at least two days….there is so much to see….
Thanks so much to my lovely girlfriend for helping me!

Shooting Michael Kleemann Armbrust / Crossbow

Scroll down for English version

 

 

For ein paar Tagen hatte ich die Möglichkeit Michael beim Armbrustschießen abzulichten.
Für mich war es sehr beeindruckend und interessant diesen Sport und Michael kennen zu lernen.
Hier noch ein paar worte über Ihn und seiner Erfahrungen mit diesen Sport:

 

Seit meinen achten Lebensjahr schieße ich leidenschaftlich mit dem
Luftdruckgewehr. Da es nach sechs Jahren doch ein bisschen einseitig wurde
probierte ich auch das Armbrustschießen aus und es begeisterte mich schnell.
Warum genau Armbrustschießen? Diese Art im Schießsport ist eine sehr auf
Konzentration und Beherrschung aufbauende Art zu schießen. Doch obwohl ich
viel Erfahrung hatte fing mir der Anfang hier nicht leicht. Nach viel Übung
und Training schaffte ich es in meinen zweiten Jahr in den Österreichischen
Kader zu kommen und durfte sogar bei der Heim EM in Innsbruck 2013
mitschießen. Heuer habe ich bereits meinen ersten internationalen Wettkampf
gewonnen. Derzeit laufen gerade die Vorbereitungen/ Qualifikationen für die
WM in Frankfurt im August.

 

 

English Version

 

 

Some days ago I got the chance to shoot some pictures of Michael during a Crossbow session
It was impressive and interesting for me to get this sport and Michael to know.
Michael was so kind to write some words about his sport:

 

I love to shoot with the air rifle since I was 8. Because after 6 years I got bored a little, I started to shoot with a crossbow -> I really loved it from the beginning. Why crossbow? Because it needs a lot of concentration and control. Although I had a lot of experience, it was not an easy start. After lots of practice, I was able to join the Austrian squad for the EM in Innsbruck 2013. This year I won my first international competition and at this moment I’m preparing for the WM in Frankfurt.
