2018-04-23   ROOF OF SHOPPING MALL IN ISTANBUL

I was impressed by the big shopping malls in Istanbul. I shot photos in different angles and compositions, as shown on the photo in the post with the gigantic roof made with steel beams.

2018-04-22   NEW YORK WEST SIDE

Standing on the Rockefeller observation deck, I made shots in all four cardinal directions. I wanted to have New York shots without the Empire State Building also because New York offers excellent views wherever your glimpse lands. I shot The photo in this post without a tripod and higher iso, which is sufficient for many darker shots, mainly if there is strong crowding on the deck.

2018-04-21   SUNSET IN BURANO

You have to take a boat to arrive Burano. My wife Karin and I took a three-island-tour from Venice where we came to Burano at later afternoon. We had one hour to explore the city and take photos. Since the village isn’t that large, I finished a photo-marathon where I had seen every little street and canal with these neat, colorful houses and could do a sunset shot from the church with the crooked tower.

2018-04-20   AFTER THE BOB DYLAN CONCERT

A great concert, a great musician, Bob Dylan. Most of the songs were new interpretations of the old classics like “Desolati0n Raw” or “Tangled up in Blue.” I had some difficulties of understanding the song text because the music was a bit overwhelming in comparison to the singing. Seeing Bob Dylan who started in 1961 and fills the concert halls even in 2018 is a highlight. After the concert I visited a pub in the Wiener Stadthalle and had a cold wheat beer.

2018-04-19   OUTSIDE ABU DHABI SHEIKH ZAYED MOSQUE

At such famous buildings, I ask myself the question, what to shoot which is not visible on the web hundred times already. Still, the classical shots have their eligibility, and I photograph them too, but then I try to take some different angels or sceneries. Like here outside the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi which offers a vast area of water-pools, buildings an pillars.

2018-04-18   ARCHITECTURE IN BERLIN

Germany’s capital is not only the hot spot for Currywurst (curry sausage) :-), it’s also interesting to have a more in-depth look at the architecture. One day I was out with my photo-backpack and my photo-bag! My wife has warned me, because of a long walking day in a city with full-packed photo equipment. It was great for the variety of the shootings. However the next day I reduced the packings to the photo-bag. Primarily it’s time-consuming to take the equipment out of the backpack when the others of the group are already around the corner.

2018-04-17   THE LAKE WITH THE PLEASANT SURROUNDINGS

The Wörther See is my favorite lake in Austria. The surroundings are pleasant, mostly mixed forest, one part with more conifers on the Northern side, the Southern side with more broadleaf forest and some rocks. I took a lake circumnavigation with a two-person electro scooter from Renault, named TWIZY. It was great fun, although the vehicle stopped at 70 km/ (45 mph), because the maximum speed was reached.

2018-04-16   SPRING AND FLOWERS ARE BACK

On my Sunday-Nordic-Walking tour with my wife, we took the way through the Türkenschanzpark, a park area with slight hills and little ponds. It dates back to 1683 at the time of the Turkish siege. From that historic battle, the park got its name. At a green hill with blue flowers, I took that photo against the sun. A good feeling, when you can leave your winter clothes at home for the coming months.

2018-04-15   VENICE NIGHTS

The advantages of exploring Venice in the nights; fewer tourists, not so hot, high lights and the unique atmosphere. Some alleyways remind you of scenes as you were in a medieval movie. From corner to corner you can see if a wine bar is still open, where you get Italian prosciutto and red wine from the Tuscany. An experience I can recommend.

2018-04-14   INTENSE SUNSET IN LANGKAWI

Since I am not the guy who lies in the hot sun for hours at a beach, I prefer to use my time to read on my Kindle or take photos. The evenings in Langkawi often have intense colors for sunset shots. The Andaman Beach Hotel lies in the rainforest and is an ideal destination for those shots. No room is longer than 5 minutes walking distance away from the beach and the sunsets. On the way, you’ll see some monkeys or sloths on the trees.
