2019-08-22 REST AFTER A LONG WALK

By |2019-08-16T20:46:30+01:00August 21st, 2019|California|

After a long walk in the hot sun, we saw the chair in an air-conditioned lobby. I left the place to my wife, Karin. For that, I was allowed to take a picture as compensation. 🙂

2019-08-20 GETTY VILLA

By |2019-08-15T20:44:22+01:00August 19th, 2019|California|

The Getty Villa in Los Angeles is built on the basis of Italian palazzos. The gardens, the building, and the entire complex are meticulously maintained. Many gardeners trim trees and bushes, cut off any excess branch — a continually renewing work of art.

2019-08-18 VENICE DURING A NIGHTLY WALK

By |2019-08-15T08:51:39+01:00August 17th, 2019|Venice|

I was walking with my wife over all the bridges, squares and alleys through Venice. It was stop-and-go traffic. Often I conflicted if I should stop again to take the next photo. Mostly the picture won. Over time, my wife turned on the mobile photography so that she could bridge the time well in addition to my photoshoots.

2019-08-16 POPPY FIELD IN THE WALDVIERTEL

By |2019-08-15T08:41:28+01:00August 15th, 2019|Austria|

The Waldviertel, a region in Lower Austria, is renowned for its beautiful poppy fields. Poppyseed strudel, poppy tents, and poppy noodles are the specialties you get there. Neat villages are located between the fields. As it is only an hour’s drive from Vienna, I will visit the area more often now.

2019-08-14 BIKER IN AMSTERDAM

By |2019-08-13T06:37:52+01:00August 13th, 2019|Amsterdam|

After a heavy rain shower, my wife Karin and I were out to search after a Pizzeria, which we found with Google. I often look at the reviews to get an idea if it is the restaurant I like. But you cannot always trust 4star+ reviews, better to try to read behind the lines. However, I used the walk to shoot some photos of the city streets.

2019-08-12 THE SCOTTISH CASTLE

By |2019-08-11T23:02:56+01:00August 12th, 2019|Scotland|

The castle in Edinburgh has all the essentials of an old knight’s castle. Fortress wall, large, thick walls, fortified grounds, and placement on the highest point of the city. There, the fortress towers on the streets of Edinburgh, as a constant reminder of the great times.

2019-08-10 MY DAUGHTER ON THE MOUNTAINS

By |2019-08-10T05:56:28+01:00August 10th, 2019|Austria|

My daughter Cara and I visited my father at a therapy center, where he recovered from his knee surgery. We took the cable car to the Rax and hiked there all afternoon on the plateau at 2000 meters. Good mountain air and pure nature at this altitude, a great experience to be on a mountain again.

2019-08-08 CANALE GRANDE

By |2019-08-06T21:26:18+01:00August 8th, 2019|Venice|

The bustle at the Canale Grande. A group of photographers filled the bridge. It was challenging to find a gap; there were dozens of tripods in use. I took my Leica and made the photos by hand, trying to capture the mood on the channel.

2019-08-06 NIGHTLY WALK IN SAN DIEGO

By |2019-08-05T18:34:31+01:00August 6th, 2019|California|

If you plan a nightly walk without the hassle of carrying heavy photo-equipment, take a Google Pixel smartphone with you. It is capable of shooting great night shots and can be placed in the pocket of your trousers easily. One advantage more, your wife hasn’t to wait too long when you are shooting photos compared to a camera, where you are working on settings and composition much longer. 🙂

2019-08-05 LIGHT SHOW IN AVIGNON

By |2019-08-04T13:14:15+01:00August 5th, 2019|France|

The Palais des Papes brings a light show every evening in the vast courtyard. My wife Karin and I were not sure if we should attend. We decided to do it and did not regret it. I can tell you; this is an excellent multi-media show of light, projected movies on the palace walls, lasers, and an incredible soundscape.
