2019-06-01 NO, THAT’S NOT AMSTERDAM

In Vienna, I see more and more hemp-stores growing rapidly. The store’s location on the photo is the first district, where rental fees are very high. So it must be a good business. Since THC is not legal by now, most of the products are CBD-based. I tried a CBD-cake and can tell you very relaxing.

2019-05-31 EVENING IN BARCELONA

The warm evening sun fills this plaza in Barcelona. I had two hours waiting time for dinner with my colleagues, where I explored the surroundings with my camera. I was ready for street-photography and was happy about the many scenes that were offered me.

2019-05-29 GLAMOUR MANNEQUINS

The Swarovski store on the Kärtner Straße in Vienna represents itself with artfully crafted windows decorations. In a glamour-style, the mannequins show the high-level outfits, which should be the analogy to the famous Swarovski crystals. I think they change the ornaments at least quarterly, so always a good reason to have a look.

2019-05-28 BUSINESS PARK IN MUNICH

The evening has come, the businessmen are about to pack their things. Some are still resting and sealing the last stores before the journey home is started. Then soon the lights go out too.

2019-05-27 TAXI DRIVER IN BARCELONA

Sunbeams, a driving taxi in roundabout traffic, a piece of architecture and the city of Barcelona combined in one photo. That was my evening job on the way to my hotel.

2019-05-26 THE WINE-CITY RETZ

The city of Retz is famous for wine and pumpkins. On the central plaza stands a church in the middle. Beneath the church is a down-stairs entry to the wine-cellars of Retz. They are an underground extravaganza, which tunnels under kilometers of the historical city center. Better go with a guide, nobody wants to get lost in the dark cellars.

2019-05-25 SUPERTREE IN ALL ITS GLORY

I wanted to go down from the bridge; I tried to stand directly before a Supertree. After the lightning show ended, I went into the park and looked from bottom to the top. I admired the architects and designers for that innovative work. The range in height is between 25 and 50 meters; they connect via a 128-meter long walkway.

2019-05-24 GUARDIANS STANDING TIGHT

The main entry to Prague Castle with the security guards reminded me of London where the guardians are not allowed to move or show any emotions. The best situation for a photographer, you have enough time for the compositions without the apprehension that the scene will change.

2019-05-23 APPLE STORE IN MILAN

Where is the most spectacular Apple store in the world? I think Milan belongs to the top ranks. The glass wall with the integrated waterfall on a downstairs located shop is an architectural masterpiece. I didn’t search after it, I saw the store by accident and positioned myself to find the perfect composition.

2019-05-22 WOODEN ROOM WITH DEER ANTLERS

I was visiting with my brother Christian the Eckartsau Castle. This is the location for his wedding, two weeks before we were visiting the premises to get a feel for the different rooms, where the wedding will take place. Very important to me, I will be the wedding photographer. Good preparation is the key to successful projects. In my mind, I formed already my shooting locations. The castle is rich in history, it was the hunting chateau of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria.
