2019-06-18 TREE WITH SUN AT THE WINE GARDENS

By |2019-06-17T21:45:27+01:00June 18th, 2019|Austria|

Driving around on the hills with wine gardens in the UNESCO heritage Wachau was a pleasure. Lovely villages and terraced vineyards shaped the impression. I took some panoramic photos of the river valley of the Danube and black and white photos of the vineyards and nature.

2019-06-17 PORTRAIT WITH LIGHTS

By |2019-06-16T10:46:59+01:00June 17th, 2019|Vienna|

At times I persuade my wife Karin to take photo sessions. As long as their patience persists, I make experimental portraits with different lighting effects in the background. More and more, I like portrait-pictures, where the background brings some excitement or cool effects.

2019-06-15 COLUMNS IN MASADA

By |2019-06-14T18:56:03+01:00June 15th, 2019|Israel|

It paid off to go down the long walkways in Masada. I arrived at a plateau where I was able to admire these beautiful antique columns. What a tremendous achievement it must have been at the time to drag these stones to the top of the mountain.

2019-06-14 THE LAST SNOW

By |2019-06-13T19:10:02+01:00June 14th, 2019|Austria|

I wondered how it is possible that at 35 degrees Celsius still snow remains. But on the mountain, Rax with a height of 1943 meters were staying snow deposits to see. My daughter used the opportunity to feel the natural spectacle. This photo was shot on June 5th, middle in the summer.

2019-06-12 THE METRO IN LOS ANGELES

By |2019-06-11T19:08:54+01:00June 12th, 2019|Generic|

I was surprised seeing two metro lines in Los Angeles, in front of my hotel. It ends in Santa Monica. From there it goes far into the city area. I crossed the lines several times during driving around in the city, however I never used it.

2019-06-11 SILENCE ON A SUNDAY EVENING

By |2019-06-10T20:43:38+01:00June 11th, 2019|Vienna|

Sundays afternoon are more silent than the other days in the week when evening approaches. A good synonym is the quiet river Wien with the yellow glowing lanterns. This is the typical evening atmosphere on Sunday evenings in Vienna.

2019-06-10 NIGHTLY WALK IN VENICE

By |2019-06-09T23:04:32+01:00June 10th, 2019|Venice|

My favorite activity in Venice, walking through the streets at night. After every corner, on the bridges always new surprises and photo opportunities. Better not to put the camera in the camera bag, you will always have it at the ready.

By |2019-06-08T04:36:28+01:00June 8th, 2019|Barcelona|

Barcelona brought me many ideas for new compositions of photography. The architecture harmonizes with the scenes on the street. There I never stopped shooting photos. 🙂

2019-06-07 RAILWAY STATION MILANO CENTRALE BLACK AND WHITE

By |2019-06-07T06:38:53+01:00June 7th, 2019|Milan|

I like the flair of old Italian railway stations. They remind me of Italian movies from Federico Fellini or Vittorio de Sica. Going through the halls and looking at the hectic life of the crowd, some organized chaos. Some travelers have long train journeys; others take the suburban train to their hometown. Everyone smells the scent of the tracks and the oil on the edge of the rails.

2019-06-06 THE FIRST DAY OF THE CARNIVAL

By |2019-06-05T20:01:03+01:00June 6th, 2019|Venice|

How to attend the opening party of the Carnival in Venice? It starts on a specific canal, best to let Google maps show you the way. To get a perfect view, you have to sit down on the embankment of the canal. The time was about 4 pm when we positioned ourselves; then we had to wait nearly 4 hours sitting on the cold stone and concrete ground with the feet swinging over the water. If you leave your place, the next waiting guests will occupy it. That’s the price you pay, for sitting in the front row. Remembering back, I can tell you, it’s worth to watch that great spectacle without hindrance.
