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.

2018-11-11   SUNSET IN SAINT-TROPEZ

By | 2018-11-11T09:28:40+00:00 November 11th, 2018|France|

The photo shows my first impression of the famous Quai Suffren in Saint-Tropez. After getting a parking lot only 200 meters away, which is big luck, my wife Karin and I took the way to the pier. It lives up to its reputation, fancy bars and restaurants on the city-side, big yachts at the sea-side.

2018-11-10   ALL TIME OF THE WORLD

By | 2018-11-09T19:17:13+00:00 November 10th, 2018|Scotland|

“All time of the world” is the motto for a statue, nothing to lose, sitting and watching at the passengers in Edinburgh. The illuminated Edinburgh Castle brings colors on the picture; a scene which I shot from Princes Street.

2018-11-09   ICM IN MUNICH

By | 2018-11-08T23:04:40+00:00 November 9th, 2018|Germany|

While visiting the Fujitsu Forum in Munich, I also used the time to shoot some photos. The International Congress Center is a top-notch modern building complex, well suited for significant events. It was a high-quality arrangement among others with presentations about blockchain and nex-gen flash storages.

2018-11-07   VLTAVA RIVER IN PRAGUE

By | 2018-11-05T22:17:12+00:00 November 7th, 2018|Prague|

The three European “sister-cities” Prague, Budapest and Vienna have much in common. The buildings and architecture look similar. Each city has its river flowing, Prague the Vltava, Budapest, and Vienna the Danube. Some centuries ago, they were all under the empire of the Habsburger.
