2018-11-21   PARK IN NANTES

By | 2018-11-20T19:00:26+00:00 November 21st, 2018|France|

My first photo in Nantes was in a park with those funny flowerpots, which are looking like bird-heads. There were also sculptures of dogs and turtles made from plants, but they were already withered, so no good photo motive. After going out, we were in a big construction zone; they were building a new railway station and rebuilding the surrounding streets.

2018-11-20   PLACA DE LA BOURSE REFLECTION

By | 2018-11-18T20:10:50+00:00 November 20th, 2018|France|

I don’t search primarily after reflection photo-shooting, but if there is the opportunity I am ready shoot. After placing the rental bike in the station, my wife and I walked on the promenade beneath the river Garonne to the Place de la Bourse. The night was crystal clear, the water flat, I could prepare the composition and could catch a reflection shot. I was happy that I had one of the most famous sights from Bordeaux in my photo collection.

2018-11-19   BEACH AT THE ATLANTIC COAST IN FRANCE

By | 2018-11-18T18:08:19+00:00 November 19th, 2018|France|

It was too cold to swim, but the beach-impressions were here, white sand, a beach bar, some sun worshipper on their beach towels. After a long walk we entered the beach-bar for two glasses of French wine. The trip was unplanned because we should have gone from Cognac directly to the Medoc, but as is often the case, we got surprised positively.

2018-11-18   HARBOR FOR THE GONDOLAS

By | 2018-11-17T20:46:00+00:00 November 18th, 2018|Venice|

Wooden stakes and jetties build the harbors for the gondolas, on the photo you see the Canale Grande. The gondolas get strapped with ropes, and then they withstand bad weather and broken water.

2018-11-17   BEER AT THE VIKTUALIENMARKT

By | 2018-11-15T20:25:31+00:00 November 17th, 2018|Germany|

How cool is this? A public alehouse stands at the Viktualienmarkt in Munich. The guy behind the bar draws many pints and 1-liter beer glasses (“Eine Maß”) in advance so that the guests don’t have to wait. A steady come and go, even I did a pint at noon with a portion of weisswurst (“Weißwurst”).

2018-11-16   FIRST SIGNS OF THE WINTER

By | 2018-11-15T19:29:12+00:00 November 16th, 2018|Generic|

I intended to do a drone-flight over the heather in Perchtoldsdorf, near Vienna. Then I saw the signs that dogs, bikes, littering were forbidden because the area is owned by the municipal. Then I was unsure if drone-flying would be allowed. I wanted to avoid anger and potential fees, so I stuck with my camera and did the shots of the beginning winter.

2018-11-15   FOOD COURT IN BORDEAUX

By | 2018-11-14T20:07:49+00:00 November 15th, 2018|France|

The food court in Bordeaux, which I present on the photo above, offered high quality, exquisite food, and tastings. Combined with fine wine from the region was an unforgettable impression which I brought home from France. Sandwiches with excellent toppings like lobster and French cheese, ham and tasty oil and spices were an enjoyment. Outside we looked after a seat and had some red Bordeaux-wine.

2018-11-14   SHOPPING CENTER IN ISTANBUL

By | 2018-11-13T19:44:09+00:00 November 14th, 2018|Istanbul|

Inside in one of the big shopping centers of Istanbul. I used the time to shoot some photos, compared to my wife and my daughter who were eager to go from shop to shop and look around, try dresses and shoes, and so on. In the end, we all were happy; I had some photos and my family some bargains. With my Sony A7S I could shoot high ISO photos in good quality.

2018-11-13   COLOSSEUM IN ROME

By | 2018-11-12T19:40:22+00:00 November 12th, 2018|Rome|

After passing the long line with a queue of hundreds of people were queued, I was entering at the Online-ticket counter where only a handful of tourists were standing. Inside this historical, unique building I was surprised at what good shape the walls, pillars, and steps were. For a short time, you could imagine of the big events and fights which happened there during the Roman Empire.

2018-11-12   SCHAFBERG RACK RAILWAY

By | 2018-11-12T06:55:31+00:00 November 12th, 2018|Austria|

I decided with my wife Karin to walk down the Schafberg mountain near St. Wolfgang. From 1783 meters down to the valley, we chose a way directly on the railroad line. Soon we got into dangerous terrain, because the line got so small, that there was nearly no escape from up-and down-coming trains. As you can see in the photo, we hid between to rocks. The walk got more and more risky on the narrow tracks, then we took a turn left and walked down between cow pastures.
