2019-05-20 SUNSET IN BARCELONA

By |2019-05-19T19:40:54+01:00May 20th, 2019|Barcelona|

The warm sunset fills your body, I loved this evening walk back to the hotel. These 2 miles brought me the sunset, great architecture and the streets with the motor-bikers. From time to time I stopped for a photo or a coffee. A mini adventure which I wouldn’t miss.

2019-05-17 THE STREETS OF BARCELONA

By |2019-05-17T19:53:56+01:00May 18th, 2019|Barcelona|

The warm climate and the sheer speed are the reasons why so many motor-scooters are on the move on the streets of Barcelona. It’s easy to maneuver around the waiting cars and get at the pole positions at the stop lines before the traffic lights. Spain and Italy are the classic countries with more motorcycles and scooters on the street than cars.

2019-05-16 ART MUSEUM IN VIENNA

By |2019-05-14T20:39:13+01:00May 16th, 2019|Vienna|

I made this snapshot with my Sony A7R 2 and the Novoflex adapter for Leica M. I used the Elmarit 28mm 2.8 V4 lens, a great companion for the Sony camera. I wondered how excellent the image performance is. No weak points with this combo, however, be aware, that you cannot use autofocus. But with the (red) focus peaking manual focus works flawlessly.

2019-05-15 TOKYO VENDING MACHINE

By |2019-05-14T20:27:54+01:00May 15th, 2019|Japan|

One of the fascinating things in Tokyo was the vast amount of vending machines. I used them frequently, buying cold coconut- or aloe vera-drinks — the perfect break for a photography session. I also liked the non-sweetened ice tea. In Europe mostly you get sweetened soft drinks in the vending machines, which is not suitable for me as a fitness-oriented guy.

2019-05-14 MY WIFE SHOT WITH THE SONY 135 A-MOUNT

By |2019-05-13T21:06:40+01:00May 14th, 2019|Vienna|

It was a Saturday afternoon at dusk when I was at the roadside with my Sony A7R 2, LA-EA4 adapter and Sony Zeiss 135mm 1.8 lens. The model was my wife, Karin. I wanted to reach a beautiful bokeh, made up of street lights and car headlights.

2019-05-13 BUDDHA IN NEW YORK

By |2019-05-12T20:50:25+01:00May 13th, 2019|New York|

I would never have seen the Buddha if the bus had not stopped at a red light and I had not sat on the first floor. I took the opportunity to capture a picture of the beautiful Buddha. For great photo experiences always keep your eyes open.

2019-05-12 ROMAN EMPIRE AQUEDUCT PONT DU GARD

By |2019-05-12T09:24:38+01:00May 12th, 2019|France|

It paid off that we took the extra mile to Pont du Gard in Southern France. This aqueduct was one of the highlights of the trip to France. It so happened that I was standing in front of it for the Golden Hour. The sunlight reflected in the arches with a golden glow. I wondered if the architects had planned it that way?

2019-05-11 TOKYO TICKET COUNTER FOR SKYTREE

By |2019-05-10T21:21:22+01:00May 11th, 2019|Japan|

After entering the entrance area to the Tokyo Skytree, we saw at first glance that we did not have to wait long. Luckily, the guide warned against long lines. Shortly after that, we were able to take the high-speed elevator to the observation deck.

2019-05-10 CITY OF PRAGUE WITH JET IN THE SKY

By |2019-05-08T19:59:52+01:00May 10th, 2019|Prague|

Uber took us to this part of the city; a commendable burger bar was there. After my son Dorian and I had eaten a Portobello burger, we were still looking for a cafe. I then took pictures of this unknown part of the city, which is mostly forgotten by the photographers. I think this combination of the TV tower and modern building a successful mix.

2019-05-09 THE MYSTERY CASTLE WITH THE PICTURE GALLERY

By |2019-05-08T19:48:53+01:00May 9th, 2019|Austria|

I can not remember in which castle I took the picture, but it was in Lower Austria. Anyway, it would be the best place to shoot a suspense thriller: enchanted rooms where people disappear, the perfect scenery for goosebumps in the cinema. Take your girlfriend with you and go through the castle; she will need a protector for sure.
