You’ve probably heard the saying “a picture is worth 1000 words” but my personal opinion is that they’re worth much more because they can provide a window into an experience and trigger your memory or imagination.
With that said, take a look through the photos below, courtesy of Kent Odgers and see if they don’t strike your imagination on what it might be like to live nearby.
You’ll find more about Kent after the photos, including a link to his portfolio where there are many more photos.
About the Photographer:
Kent Odgers, husband of Courtney Odgers, who recently appeared in our Expat Spotlight Interview Series has been working as an Information Technology Manager in Germany since 2007, living in a small village outside Stuttgart.
In his spare time, he performs with the town Posaunenchor (brass band) – playing trumpet for elderly citizens’ birthdays, town events, and church holidays. A member of a local German-American car club, he explores the limits, or rather lack of limits, on the famous German Autobahn. Presumably he’s out tearing it up with their V8-enhanced Mazda RX-7, and we’re not talking about vegetable juice.
Kent enjoys the travel and culture opportunities of being an expat centrally located in Europe and actively pursues his passion for capturing many of these moments digitally.
His camera of choice while traveling? A Canon Powershot G10 for its small size (perfect for the backpack) and the level of control it offers. He prefers to capture the scene as it is, candid, and to capture as much as the eyes can see. He has experimented with various new digital methods including high dynamic ranging (HDR) and tilt shift photography. For the indoors and sports, Kent favors either the entry level Nikon or Canon SLR digital cameras – both will give you pro-level shots for average joe-level dough.
