I’ve not been outside today, I am still not feeling completely well. This is an image from the recent trip to Poland, taken when we made our way over small roads from Kraków to Auschwitz.

I suppose this plane is not in use any more, and why someone would have a jet plane in his garden, I really can’t tell. I just found it curious.

Apart from that, there are some new things on this website. If you read this in Google Reader or some other feed reader, you will have to click through to my site to see them.

The first thing are the portfolios. See the menu on top? There have been portfolios for the last four calendar years for a while now, the recent addition is a bicycle portfolio.

The other thing is that I am just beginning to offer free wallpapers of some of my images. They are released under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 United States License, which means that you are invited to use and share them, as long as you don’t sell or change them.

Of course you may already have discovered the new NEWS widget on top of the side bar. This is where I will post announcements from now on.

The Song of the Day is “The Garden” from the 1996 Einstürzende Neubauten album “Ende Neu”. Einstürzende Neubauten, this is Blixa Bargeld‘s own band, his other major involvement was of course with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. See a video on YouTube.

  1. thanks for adding some of your images for free use as wallpaper.
    i picked up nr 1107 (the harmony of industry and nature II)
    i can study it now more in detail while i’m waiting for my computer has finished a job i made him do for me 🙂
    (we work here often with very huge and heavy processor absorbing projects; you can’t alway start another job in the mean time 🙂

    have you thought af a sort of watermark. I would love to see your name on that image. so people will know the owner and creator.
    some pr for your work kinda thing.
    would be proud to let people know 🙂

    • Uhh … there is a watermark, isn’t it? In the lower corner there is a watermark saying “manessinger.com”. Or did I miss it in one size???

      Basically the whole purpose is to attract people to the blog. Giving something away is always a good idea. The problem is, that most of my images don’t lend themselves to being cropped to a cinemascope format. These two did and more will follow.

  2. ah, yes. now i discovered it. so you didn’t miss the 1680×1050 version.
    on my desktop it is hided behind the toolbar and quickstart panel (windows)

    (maybe on top, just right of the middle; google desktop (that one with the destop gadgets) is placed mostly on the right side. it’s a matter of try out, i think) 🙂

    have a good evening
    hilareous, a plane as garden decoration 🙂
    i think that’s a luxury, for those who lives in the country 🙂

    • Ahh, funny. I always set my taskbar to “auto hide”. Well, I wanted the watermarks to be as unobtrusive as possible, seemingly I succeeded 🙂
