2019-01-23   CHICAGO RIVER

By |2019-01-22T21:50:18+00:00January 23rd, 2019|USA|

It was very hot, so I searched for a place in the shadow. The bridge was a safe place, covered by shadows from the skyscrapers. I could rest a bit and drink my ice-cold diet coke as the yellow boat approached, then I prepared my camera for shots from the Chicago River. I like the composition from the river which is meandering through the city.

2019-01-22   WINTER WALK

By |2019-01-21T19:57:45+00:00January 22nd, 2019|Vienna|

On a Sunday afternoon, many Viennese go to the local mountains. A winter hike in cold, dry weather gives you fresh air for a clear mind and gets your circulation going. Take a camera with you, and then you will succeed with some snapshots.

2019-01-21   MODERN BUILDINGS IN PRAGUE

By |2019-01-20T16:56:56+00:00January 21st, 2019|Prague|

My son wanted a burger; therefore we ordered Uber and let bring us to a 4.8 star rated burger bar. It was tiny, only with five tables, but excellent burgers. Afterward, we wanted a coffee. Searching in the area brought us to the building-block on the photo. There we found a Cafe and even could watch football while drinking.

2019-01-20   SKATEBOARDERS IN BORDEAUX

By |2019-01-19T18:56:32+00:00January 20th, 2019|France|

The city of Bordeaux is full of life in the night. Many places and streets are crowded a constant bustle. Skateboarders were performing between the old buildings. They showed acrobatic figures. I have always admired the skipping of the skateboard while driving, changing direction, then driving in the opposite direction. And all without a fall.

2019-01-19   SHIPPING AT THE GOLDEN GATE

By |2019-01-18T21:19:11+00:00January 19th, 2019|USA|

How to differentiate from the thousands of Golden Gate Bridge – pictures? I had the luck and patience to see some shipping at the bridge. My friends had to wait a bit. I was eager for shooting the photo. Then we could continue with our goal, to cross the bridge with E-bikes and then drive to Sausalito.

2019-01-18   THE COOK

By |2019-01-17T22:44:18+00:00January 18th, 2019|Austria|

“Vienna Coffee World” – an exhibition entirely dedicated to coffee roasters, coffee machines, and accessories. I got a speed kick; you get coffee for tasting at each corner. A pimped up with version, with Licor 47, espresso and ice was great. The cook on the photo served sweet snacks for the coffee lovers. I could shoot some discreet pictures with my Leica X Vario.

2019-01-17   LONG STREET IN GENOA

By |2019-01-16T20:53:28+00:00January 17th, 2019|Italy|

After a more extended walking trip on the hard pavements, we decided to take a Red-Bus to make exploring the city more relaxing. I had the right place a the edge, positioning me for the exposures. This photo I converted to black and white with Silver Efex Pro two times.

2019-01-16   CANDY STORE IN HARAJUKU

By |2019-01-15T20:37:26+00:00January 16th, 2019|Japan|

Wandering through the streets was my favorite hobby in Tokyo. The smaller lanes were more diversified. You could see dozens of little shops and kiosks on both sides of the road, from candy stores to electronic shops, from sushi restaurants to boutiques. Often you got new surprises on each corner. The dress of the girl suited well to the colorful interior of the store.

2019-01-15   CYCLING IN BOLZANO

By |2019-01-13T19:30:48+00:00January 14th, 2019|Italy|

My first journey to South Tyrol brought me to Bolzano, Cortina d’Ampezzo and Merano. Although it belongs to Italy for more than 60 years now, most of the people speak fluent German. Many road signs are in Italian and German; I think the autonomous status exists since 1972.
