2018-12-14   SQUARE IN NANTES

I was searching after the “Jules Verne”-wall in Nantes when I entered that large square. I put the Samyang 14mm lens on my Sony A7R II and shot a wide angle photo with the square and some passengers in the foreground and the houses-front in the backend.

2018-12-13   VALLEY IN THE CANTON TICINO

My wife and I stayed a few days a the Lago Maggiore. One afternoon we took a trip to the backland of the Ticino. We arrived at a dam, where I shot that photo. I tried to catch the depth and height of this monument. I leaned a bit forward, but was completely safe, standing with both feet on the ground. 🙂

2018-12-12   HILTON BAR SAN FRANCISCO

The Hilton bar in San Francisco brings you a great view in all four cardinal directions, with windows reaching from the top to the floor. There are no optimal conditions for taking photos, no tripods allowed, shooting through reflective windows. As a photographer you cannot resist the view, so you have to try your best and make steady handheld shots, higher ISO, lower F-Stop. After your photo session, it’s easy to look after the right place for a drink and relax.

2018-12-11   PIAZZA DEL DUOMO

The most visited place in Milan, very touristic, where to find a photo spot? For me it was this picture, taking photos from people taking photos, a fresh perspective of the Piazza del Duomo. Then I was walking around, searching for the next motives. I found more and more, unusual angles, wide angles, and different foregrounds.

2018-12-09   WAITING FOR MY WIFE

My wife should have come at 4 pm in the Löwelstrasse, Vienna, to pick me up for a ride to Gloggnitz. At 4 pm the phone rang, and she told me, that she is still at home, but is leaving soon and will be half an hour late. Instead of getting angry 🙂 , I took my Google Pixel 2 phone and walked in the nearby streets and in the Volksgarten to take some photos. I was lucky, because, in winter time, 4 pm is a good time for photo shooting, with the sinking sun and therefore more beautiful colors.

2018-12-08   THE TOUR DE MEDOC

What can one do in the Medoc? Driving from Chateau to Chateau and taking photos, that was what my wife Karin and I were doing. In most of the Chateaus, you can go around freely, shooting pictures and exploring the facilities. Two times we attended a behind-the-scenes tour where you get info about the wine production and at the end a tasting of excellent Bordeaux wines.

2018-12-07   GREEN PARK IN STOCKHOLM

Abba museum, Wasa museum, Vikings experience are many attractions of Sweden’s capital Stockholm. But often it depends, should you go in, is the attraction worth the price? Most parks are completely free and give enjoyment after a long walk on the hot tarmac of the city. I took a break on a bank. Then I looked at Tripadvisor to read the recommendations of the sights.

2018-12-06   AFTER CROSSING WITH A BIKE

We were a group of eight when crossing the Golden Gate Bridge with rental E-bikes. The bike lane is relatively narrow; you have to manage the driving while many bikes come from the opposite direction. Often you have to stop, let others ride, start again, pause, then stopping for sightseeing, get on the bikes and go further. It’s a great experience on that large bridge. After arriving on the viewing point, I had the great opportunity to take some photos, which have a bit of a different view of the bridge.

2018-12-05   CHURCH IN VILLAGE FALKENSTEIN

During an evening walk between the corn fields, I stopped for taking photos of the landscape. My brother and his girlfriend were patient and polite, they always waited for me, so I had enough time for my photos. On the way home, we went into a wine bar for some food and let the evening end in a quiet atmosphere.
