2019-12-11  SITTING IN THE GRASS

The unique promenade in Bordeaux. People who make themselves comfortable in the high grass. On the other side, the street dancers. A pleasant illumination of the bridges, paths, and bicycle lanes. A very relaxed nightlife in Bordeaux.

2019-12-10  THE GREAT MOSQUE

Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi is one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen. It’s sheer size, architecture, and construction is overwhelmingly impressive. Inside and outside, you can explore so many details and perspectives. You have to take care of your clothing and pull off your shoes in some places, and you are not allowed to cross the barriers, but you are entirely free to take photos. So I shot a lot. Since I was there in the later afternoon, I stayed there until the night. I could fully participate in the golden and the blue hour.

2019-12-09  MY SON ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON

After a two hours session in the gym, we were starving. I drove with my son Maro to the Naschmarkt to eat a Kebap. At Dr. Falafel, they have the best, with chicken or falafel, spicy sauces, and fresh vegetables. We continued shopping at the market with fruits, eggs, and meat for the coming week. After that, I added a half on hour photo session, where I could get some beautiful portrait shots.

2019-12-08  THE COLORFUL MARKET HALL IN ROTTERDAM

First I saw the famous Market Hall in a youtube video. I was impressed by the painted fruits that decorate the ceiling. Behind the many windows on the side walls are apartments. The inhabitants have daily views from the happenings in the market. I dried some coconut balls and tasty cheese. The photo shows the capabilities of the Google Pixel 3 XL smartphone. With some post-processing, you get presentable images.

2019-12-07  DECK CHAIRS IN THE SUN OF MALTA

The warm sun of Sliema over the deck chairs. Pleasant to see the photo where it currently has just -2 degrees outside temperature for me, sitting in my living room in Vienna.

2019-12-06  PRAGUE – A PHOTOGRAPHER’S DREAM

Prague has so many postcard motifs. There are neuralgic photo points which you should not miss. Even they are shot thousands of times. Who cares, everybody wants a photo of the Charles Bridge with the skyline of Prague in his portfolio.

2019-12-05  MY WIFE KARIN IN FRONT OF THE CHRISTMAS MARKET

Not far away from the statue which I posted yesterday, I made the photo of my wife Karin with the illuminated and decorated trees of the Christmas market in the background. Not a bad job for my Leica M240 with only available light as the source for the composition.

2019-12-04  STATUE IN 1010 VIENNA

1010 is the postal code of the first district in Vienna. In the Volksgarten, you can see that Roman looking building named “Theseustempel.” It is the home of many artists with changing exhibitions. In the evening the building was closed already, but I could shoot a photo of the statue in front, which represents the latest exhibition.

2019-12-02  CHURCH IN EDINBURGH

I used the views from Edinburgh Castle to shoot photos from the city. This photo is one of my favorites, with the unique style of the church tower. I have seen this gothic architecture is a typical style in Scotland; many churches look like this.

2019-12-01  COFFEE BREAK ON THE MARKET

Last Sunday I was with my family at the Brunnenmarkt in Vienna. After eating a Kebap, we went to an outdoor Cafe which served self-ground coffee. For afternoon happenings, I always have my camera with me. In this case, I made a portrait session of my kids. On the photo my son Dorian waiting for an espresso.
