2018-05-31   MILAN COURTYARD

By | 2018-05-31T10:31:46+00:00 May 31st, 2018|Milan|

Walking around in Milan and going into the palatial buildings brings you Italian courtyards with statues, pillars, and interesting architecture. Don’t forget your wide-angle lens, a must to capture the scenery.

2018-05-30   VENICE VIEW FROM PIAZZA SAN MARCO TO THE SEA

By | 2018-05-29T20:47:00+00:00 May 30th, 2018|Venice|

I took an hour off from our family evening-walking tour in Venice. Since my wife Karin, my brother-in-law and my sister-in-law are not interested in photography, they find it boring standing beneath a tripod and waiting for compositions. They also don’t find the excitement I get with night-time shots and picture effects like here, where the ship is completely abstracted from the foreground and find itself with light-strips on the photo.

2018-05-29   SILVER SHOP WINDOW IN VIENNA

By | 2018-05-28T21:31:49+00:00 May 29th, 2018|Vienna|

Though I don’t own any silver plates I like watching it through shop windows. Those artfully decorated accessories combined with the lightning gave a beautiful photo motive. I took that picture with my Google Pixel II XL which I sometimes use as a substitute for my mirrorless camera.

2018-05-28   MAIN SQUARE IN VERONA

By | 2018-05-28T19:52:57+00:00 May 28th, 2018|Italy|

The classical Italian style of the cities, the main square with statues and cobbled ground, surrounded by cafes and shoe boutiques. A unique architecture which can only be found in Italy. Mostly one glimpse is enough and you know you this is an Italian city.

2018-05-27   MUSEUM ALBERTINA IN VIENNA

By | 2018-05-27T21:34:53+00:00 May 27th, 2018|Vienna|

Keith Haring exhibition in the Albertina in Vienna. A good contrast to the expressionist’s paintings which are normally exhibited. The building is also a must-see, as shown here on a nightly shot.

2018-05-26   PRAGUE SHOPPING CENTRE

By | 2018-05-26T16:01:13+00:00 May 26th, 2018|Prague|

Back from San Francisco with jet-lag, I have processed this photo shot inside a shopping center in Prague. After arriving at the hotel and bringing the suitcases into the room, I walked with my wife out of the hotel. We wanted a coke-light and entered the shopping center. I looked after a handrail where I could place my camera and shot some photos from the third floor.

Since I am on the way to San Francisco, I post a photo of my last year’s visit. I will give this photo blog a one week break, because of my busy schedule. In the meantime, I will continue to post on Instagram; please search after heyyou_photo

2018-05-19   OLD WINE HOUSES IN LOWER AUSTRIA

By | 2018-05-17T19:31:08+00:00 May 19th, 2018|Austria|

I visited my brother and his girlfriend in a town called Falkenstein. It lies in an area with many wineries and a hill with a ruin on top. A unique visiting hotspot is the wine routes with little wine houses. Each of these has a cellar where you can find hogsheads, mostly built from wood.

2018-05-18   TREES ON CINQUE TERRE WALK

By | 2018-05-17T19:21:26+00:00 May 18th, 2018|Italy|

t was a 4-hour walk at about 40° C in the plump midday sun from Corniglia to Monterosso. Uphill on stone steps, down on sandy and dusty ways, through trees and plants and great views to the mediterranean sea. After two-thirds of the ways we saw an old man, who was selling fresh orange juice and water, there was already a queue, waiting for the drinks. With the photo shooting, I had to be careful, because of my sweaty hands and the dust in the air.

2018-05-17   ROOFS OF A CHURCH IN CARINTHIA

By | 2018-05-16T20:16:09+00:00 May 17th, 2018|Generic|

My wife Karin and I were on a Quad tour where we could drive on hilly streets and farm lanes. It was kind of fun, and from time to time we stopped and I was on the way to shoot some photos. I saw that church with the intricated roofs which give a not commonplace view and picture.
