2020-06-01 THE OFFICE IN BARCELONA

When I walked around in the evening, I saw office workplaces between the mighty pillars on Placa d’Espanya. With the reflections of the buildings behind and the full columns, interesting perspectives have emerged. For me a kind of added creativity compared to standard snapshot photos.

2020-05-31 THE TIME WILL COME

and all will open again. Here in Austria, the gyms opened yesterday. So I can put away my training equipment at home and go back to my gym routine. Even the hotels are open since yesterday and sooner or later flights to the US will start again. Times will get better.

2020-05-30 THE FRUITS OF A JOSHUA TREE

I think nobody will eat these fruits, but they gave an excellent extension to the picture. An extraordinary experience to see these trees. In Joshua Tree National Park, sometimes you think you are on another planet with all these exotic plants and desert landscapes.

2020-05-29 THE DOOR OF THE CASTLE

I revisited the wedding castle of my brother Christian, together with his wife. Such old buildings often bring unique opportunities for photos. When I saw the entrance with the incoming sunlight, it was immediately apparent what the picture of the day would be. I waited until some action occurred. The Eckartsau castle was the hunting lodge of the Austrian heir to the throne, Franz Ferdinand.

2020-05-27 CLEAN ENERGY IN THE NETHERLANDS

Wind, water, and green grass with windmills were my view on the northern bays of the Netherlands. I was the captain of a houseboat, and I often gave the steering wheel to my son, when I was on the deck shooting photos. The silence of the rotating wind turbines was a comforting sight.

2020-05-26 CONEY ISLAND VISIT

For me, there were three reasons to visit Coney Island. First, a visit to Nathan’s Hot Dogs was the order of the day. Second, I wanted to see the backdrop of many films, including “The Warriors.” Third, I’m a fan of David Bowie and the song “Slip Away.” My expectations were fulfilled—a great area with show booths, fairground flair, and the charm of bygone days.

2020-05-25 ITALY OPENS ON JUNE 3RD

Great that the first steps back to normal are in place. I cannot wait to revisit Italy. Italy opens its borders on June 3rd. However, Austria has to change its current law, where everyone has to go to a two-week quarantine after returning from Italy. That will change within the next weeks too, I think.

2020-05-23  NIGHTLY WAY HOME

While walking home from a festival, I got that view from the Millenium Tower in Vienna. It was a full moon, which made the picture more interesting. Since I had no tripod with me, I did a handheld shot in the night, which I had to balance accordingly.

2020-05-22  WALKING SELFIES

I was never a friend of selfies. I wouldn’t say I like the wide-angle faces on the photos. However, I prefer to shoot pictures of people doing selfies. In the later afternoon, when the sunlight falls on the streets, it is always a good time for street photography.

2020-05-21  THE GREEN IN THE JAPANESE GARDEN

The refreshing and shade-giving green with the sun shining through the branches. Always a pleasure for me to walk through the Japanese garden. The selection and placement of the plants result in a harmonious whole.
