2019-03-26 CITY OF BIKES

By |2019-03-25T21:57:15+01:00March 26th, 2019|Stockholm|

I admired the harmony between cyclists and motorists in Stockholm, which worked harmoniously without aggression. Unlike my hometown Vienna, where a constant battle between cars and bicycles can be observed. Every road user sees the right on his side.

2019-03-25 ATLANTIC IN FRANCE

By |2019-03-24T20:50:42+01:00March 25th, 2019|France|

My wife Karin and I were driving from Cognac to Bordeaux. I suggested to my wife that she would take half an hour to get to the Atlantic coast. We did not expect that we will see such a wide sandy beach with the blue sea of the Atlantic. So I could add some beach photos to my collection.

2019-03-24 AUSTRIAN NATIONAL LIBRARY

By |2019-03-23T11:00:35+01:00March 24th, 2019|Vienna|

You can expect such magnificent frescoes and ceilings in churches or castles. The Austrian Nationalbibliotek also houses these large ceiling frescoes in the “Prunksaal”, painted by court painter Daniel Gran. Locally you can see that many figures and elements were painted in 3D style, and this happened 300 years ago.

2019-03-23 WAITING FOR THE WATER BUS

By |2019-03-22T22:29:33+01:00March 23rd, 2019|Italy|

I shot the beautiful sunset while waiting for a water bus at the Lido di Venezia. Hence life never gets annoying as a photographer. Most of the people waiting were looking at their smartphones, again and again. I was walking around and shot photos from the sunset, the horizon with Venice city far away, the Laguna with the boats and water buses. I ended with about a hundred unexpected pictures in my collection, which I photographed around the water bus station.

2019-03-22 BAR IN MUNICH

By |2019-03-21T19:50:49+01:00March 22nd, 2019|Germany|

Motel One is a new, stylish hotel chain in Europe, mostly located in Germany and Austria. They have mastered to offer excellent pricing for well-designed hotels at top locations. As I visited a Fujitsu event in Munich, I stayed for two nights in a Motel One. I had the chance to experience the bar on the high floor with a broad view over Munich, at the balcony I made some handheld shots of the city. I had two Averna with ice and some funny conversations with Swiss account managers from Fujitsu.

2019-03-21 CANALS IN VENICE

By |2019-03-20T23:06:02+01:00March 21st, 2019|Venice|

Always ready for a snapshot, the constant changing action in Venice demands to be prepared with the camera in your hand. The city is old, worn, morbid, with crumbled plaster, rusty ironed grids, some great restaurants, and some tourist traps, this city is an art-masterpiece in large magnitude.

2019-03-20 VIEW FROM MASADA

By |2019-03-19T20:53:33+01:00March 20th, 2019|Israel|

The ancient fortification of Masada is a singularity in the area between the Dead Sea and the mountains behind. Built on a 400-meter rock, you can either choose to walk up or take the cable car. Once you reached the summit, the view is spectacular. You see the rugged mountains in the backyard, the lowlands with crusts of salt from and the Dead Sea in Eastern direction.

2019-03-19 THEME PARK IN TOKYO

By |2019-03-18T20:57:14+01:00March 19th, 2019|Japan|

I shot the photo from Tokyo Dome and its accompanied theme park from a parachute simulation attraction. The height was about 50 meters; I took the photo handheld at the top. Photo-cameras were not allowed, so I smuggled the camera with me. 🙂

2019-03-18 SKATER IN BORDEAUX

By |2019-03-17T22:15:39+01:00March 18th, 2019|France|

I always admire the kids in the skate parks. They are so flexible and fast when doing their acrobatic figures. It’s a sub-culture with unique clothing and music, designed to bring new athletic levels and hype to spectators and the social media channels. When I am on the cross-trainer in the fitness center, on the TV-screens, they often show skating or mountain-bike competitions. As I drove on an E-Bike in Bordeaux, I stopped immediately and shot some photos of the young guys.
