Wide.

Bund Panorama.
Wide. I’ve gone wide.

Not only physically – I stopped smoking for good 3 months ago and ate a bit too much afterwards – but also here on this very blog. I’ve pushed the pixels around a lot, and raised the width from a lame 500-something to a W I D E 900! Yay! Now you are able to see my photography in much better quality, as I embed them in the next higher resolution that flickr allows now. Let’s be honest, nobody’s using a 56k or ISDN line anymore, and I really think pictures deserve to be published in a size that allows to see more detail. Why do I have a 24 megapixel camera if I squeeze the picture into a tiny 500 pixels? Doesn’t make much sense to me.

I still have to adjust font sizes a bit here and there in the next days, make them a bit bigger so that the word lines run shorter, but all in all I’m pretty happy with the new layout. And I took the annoying twitter updates off the home page, so that you won’t see anything but Jakob generated content here. I’ve let the blog down in the last months, I’ve been too busy, but I’ll try to write a bit more again, especially since my wife Jiajia and I are going to become parents next year. Cool?

Pretty clear sky over Shanghai.

Shanghai Bund.
Taken during one of the only three days you got every year where you can (almost) see the horizon in Shanghai, China.
I have shot and edited this image sometime between 2007-2009 for the ‘China Prophecy: Shanghai’ exhibition in The Skyscraper Museum in Lower Manhattan, New York City. Due to the limited space in the museum, only a dozen of images are showcased. This is one of the ‘lost’ images. You can order prints from this photo here.

This is taken out of the observatory in the Jin Mao Tower on the 88th floor. It was then processed with various image editing tools.
