2019-11-30  FLAMINGO HILTON LAS VEGAS

I used my spare time between the business meetings for short photo tours. Beneath the Linq hotel, where I had my room, lies the Flamingo Hilton. The pink reflective facade with the palm trees gives a typical Las Vegas feeling. In the leisure area, they had a wedding chapel and at a little pond some real flamingos.

2019-11-29  THE WORKING MAN

This man is doing a real craft. It is called woodturning, similar to a lathe for metalworking. In the shop next door, you could buy chairs and tables. For some, it’s a hobby, for only a few a profession. The scene was shot in Lower Austria.

2019-11-28  BORDEAUX AND THE RIVER GARONNE

The reflections on the River Garonne from the opposite side of the shore cover the whole width. This was my photo session of all directions. The river in front of me, behind me the public dancers and on the right, the grass ways with the beautiful lanterns. The last two pictures I have already posted.

2019-11-27  THE STREETS OF CHICAGO

We found the 5-start recommended breakfast restaurant in a South-Western part of Chicago. After one hour drive, we were quite disappointed. The breakfast was far away from outstanding, as written in the recommendations. I am mostly satisfied with an omelet if the size is right (big 🙂 ), but with my wife Karin, it is more complicated 🙂 . I used the area for walking around and taking some photos of the streets.

2019-11-25  MY WIFE AT THE CHRISTMAS MARKET

Christmas season has started in Vienna already. The famous Christmas markets are open. I recommend trying some Maroni, which you get from the Maroni-Brater. Or fried potato dumplings, which are heated in the Maroni-oven well and served with garlic. And it is always a good time to catch some colors of Christmas in your photos.

2019-11-24  SUN IN MALTA

What ensures the intensity of the sun in Malta. Is it the Mediterranean that surrounds the island? Or, that there are no mountains, only shallow sea so that the sun comes into its own. However, one of the most intense sunrises ever.

2019-11-23  LITTLE VILLAGE IN FRANCE

My wife and I were on the Autobahn, driving to Avignon. I didn’t remember the village, which was located on a higher hill, about fifty miles from St. Tropez. Since we were thirsty and hungry, we left the road and made a break. The old town was built to take pictures. Instead of a 15 minutes break, we were there for about an hour. We came back to the car with dozens of new photographs and strengthened with good coffee.

2019-11-22  HOUSES IN JERUSALEM

I was on the famous observation deck, where you get a great overview of Jerusalem. I think I was there then more than an hour. Shooting photos and looking at the fascinating city. I was very impressed, seeing and feeling all the different religions.

2019-11-21  DANCEFLOOR IN BORDEAUX

The shadows with the dancing people give magnificent scenery for photographing. I have never seen that before, that people are dancing spontaneously in a public place. For French culture, Bordeaux is an excellent representative.

2019-11-20  SINGER AT THE AFRICA DAYS

The Africa Days are a special event in Vienna. You get tasteful food, can buy colorful clothing or musical instruments. And there is a big stage for live performances. I was there with my telephoto lens to catch some photos of this talented singer.
