2019-02-17  THE BEAUTIFUL GARDENS

Merano with its Trauttmannsdorf Castle and the beautiful gardens are the top attraction of the city. Since it’s a bit outside, best to get there is with an E-bike. My wife Karin and I have rented the bikes at the railway station. The good thing was that with the Bolzano-card the train between Merano and Bolzano is free. With air condition and wifi in the wagons, I can highest recommend Trenitalia.

2019-02-16  HONG KONG PIZZERIA

Some pizza in Hong Kong? The diversity of food corresponds to the variety of little restaurants along the streets. I stayed with Asian food. Since I live relatively near to Italy, I can get pizza more often anyway. 🙂

2019-02-15  QUTB MINAR

The tower from 1192. A one-of-a-kind building, built from thousands of individual bricks and stones. I would have liked to step up the 73 meters, but entry was not allowed. Each of its blocks has unique ornaments, the whole complex houses similar buildings, built from the same materials, but not this height. On the entry, there have been straying dogs, which were resting in brown puddles of water.

2019-02-14  THE MEMORABLE MONUMENT

I was so impressed with the monument that I post the comment of Mark Twain, which says it all:

Around about are green trees and grass. The place is a sheltered, reposeful woodland nook, remote from noise and stir and confusion—and all this is fitting, for lions do die in such places, and not on granite pedestals in public squares fenced with fancy iron railings. The Lion of Lucerne would be impressive anywhere, but nowhere so impressive as where he is.

— Mark Twain, A Tramp Abroad, 1880

2019-02-13  HONG KONG NIGHT TOUR

The city of Hong Kong is a mixture of a high-tech extravaganza, modern infrastructure, and traditional Chinese shops and restaurants. Everyone can discover exciting places for themselves. I decided to take photos from different perspectives but wanted to preserve the Hong Kong touch.

2019-02-12  SHOP WINDOW IN VENICE

The great thing about Venice is the many details you see as you stroll through the streets. Window panes, house entrances or small bridges, photo-motives where the eye reaches. Here on the photo typical Venice style, masks, wrought iron, and colorful Italian glass.

2019-02-11  BRIDGE ON THE GLACIER

In the high mountains, the trend is towards spectacular viewing platforms and floating bridges. At the Dachstein, at 2995 meters there is the Suspension Bridge. It is perfectly safe to walk over, but people who are afraid of heights should not look down.

2019-02-10   ICE SKATING IN FRONT OF THE BURGTHEATER

At my photography tour in the ice skating arena near the town hall in Vienna, I tried different lenses. I made the photo with a wide-angle 14mm 2.8 lens from Samyang. The lens is a native E-mount lens, so no need for an adapter. For cities and places, wide-angle shots often bring the perfect symbioses between centered motives and surroundings. Therefore they fulfill the complete showing of all subjects you wanted to catch with the image.

2019-02-09   VIEW OVER MILAN

From where to get this great view over Milan? You have to enter the roof exploration tour of the Milan Cathedral. After going up with an elevator,  you walk on narrow paths directly on the roof, seeing the statues and concrete ornaments and pillars near you.
