2019-01-31   COMING HOME

By |2019-01-30T19:36:55+01:00January 31st, 2019|Vienna|

Is someone waiting for here? Anyway, she’s in a hurry, unlike me. I was relaxed, I had half an hour, waiting for my wife. So I was able to photograph the stressful people on the streets.

2019-01-30   DRAMA AT THE FALLS

By |2019-01-29T20:30:15+01:00January 30th, 2019|Canada|

All ingredients for a drama-picture, the falls, haze and fog, a rainbow, the boat in wild water and flying seagulls. I was standing on an observation deck as all those proceedings happened at once. It was on the Canadian side of the Niagara Falls, which offer a better view than the US. Some wet haze was also on my camera, but my Sony A7S survived without damage.

2019-01-29   HOTEL INTERCONTINENTAL IN BORDEAUX

By |2019-01-28T20:50:29+01:00January 29th, 2019|France|

Before I was in Bordeaux for the first time, I only had the red wine in my head. On the spot I saw how great the city was, long promenades, dozens of bicycle lanes, historic old town and hundreds of bars and restaurants. My recommendation is to borrow a bike at the public rentals and then explore the city.

2019-01-28   PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION II

By |2019-01-27T21:18:05+01:00January 28th, 2019|London|

“Pictures at an Exhibition” is a great song from Emerson, Lake, and Palmer. I had the joy to see a live concert from them, a rock band with classical elements. My photo shows the “Andreas Gursky” exhibition in Hayward Gallery, Southbank Centre, London. The most impressive photo show I have ever seen, most of the pictures had dimensions from 4-6 meters in length and height. I would wish, there could be a steady Andreas Gursky-exhibition which shows the photos for the years to come.

2019-01-27   PUMPKIN FAIR

By |2019-01-26T18:29:09+01:00January 27th, 2019|Austria|

Once a year the city Retz gets famous for its pumpkin fair. Orange colors and garlands line the streets. The decoration of the houses and many food-booths are in the sign of the pumpkin. I tasted a Prague ham roasted over an open fire with charcoal. Then a glass of white wine, which is the second famous product of this area.

2019-01-25   GÖTTWEIG ABBEY AERIAL

By |2019-01-25T19:39:18+01:00January 26th, 2019|Austria|

Parking on a lane between fields was the best place for starting my DJI drone. The location was fully compatible with my license, which forbids me to fly over a residential area. I wanted this shot of Göttweig Abbey, residing on a higher hill and its surroundings. It is home of Benedictine monks. After the drone session, we did get up to the abbey and visited the churches, the big wall, and the sightseeing platform.

2019-01-25   CONSTRUCTION WORK IN LONDON

By |2019-01-25T19:43:46+01:00January 25th, 2019|London|

Coming out of Paddington Station on the way to Little Venice in London, I saw an armada of buildings in work. Gigantic steel traverses were coupled together surrounded by concrete slabs. I went to the barrier. Then I positioned myself for a photo. My wife was behind me. She had already shot a dozen pictures with her iPhone. In the meantime I do it similar, also shooting some additional smartphone photos, that I don’t miss a moment or a scene.

2019-01-23   CHICAGO RIVER

By |2019-01-22T21:50:18+01:00January 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.
