2018-09-05   BOTANICAL GARDEN IN VARENNA

By | 2018-09-02T19:39:35+00:00 September 4th, 2018|Italy|

I think Lake Como with the city Como got famous because of the stars like George Clooney, which have a villa there. The village Bellagio got famous because of the casino in Las Vegas with the same name. My wife Karin and I took a speedboat tour which had ship stations at each village at the lake. One stop was Varenna, where you can walk through a fantastical botanical garden, which is very neat and has a broad spectrum of Mediterranean plants and trees.

2018-09-04   ON THE WAY TO SCANDINAVIA

By | 2018-09-02T14:37:16+00:00 September 3rd, 2018|Stockholm|

Stockholm has deep waters which reach into the city; the cruiser was at anchor at a big concrete wall near a bridge and fabric buildings. It got prepared for a tour all around Scandinavia. I was a spectator only and thought about the effort of building such a large ship.

2018-09-03   WACHAU – UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE

By | 2018-09-02T10:50:28+00:00 September 2nd, 2018|Austria|

I took all the way up, to the higher levels of the wine gardens to get the magnificent view over the hills, the river Danube and the village called Spitz. The area is named Wachau and got its Unesco World Heritage status in 2000. When visiting, don’t forget to taste the excellent wines, like Riesling, Chardonnay, Weißburgunder or Grüner Veltliner. For the photo, I took handheld panorama shots, where I overlapped at about 30% to give Photoshop enough room tho photo merge. With this process, I always got good results, and Photoshop stacked the panos nicely.

2018-09-02   TRE CIME DI LAVAREDO

By | 2018-08-31T17:53:43+00:00 September 1st, 2018|Italy|

You can drive up the mountain road until 2999 meters, then take a walk of about 1 kilometer, and you will stand before that nature spectacle called Tre Cime di Lavaredo (“three merlons”). The jagged mountaintops of the Dolomites surround the whole area. Big valleys are at your feet. The weather god meant well with me, I had some short moments where the fog went away, and I could shoot photos with the three peaks. On the way back, rain was pouring already. 🙂

2018-09-01   NEAR THE TOKYO DOME

By | 2018-08-30T21:46:13+00:00 August 31st, 2018|Japan|

Wandering near the Tokyo Dome brings you to a theme park, that water fountain place on the photo and to a roller coaster. Many restaurants and shops around, and a tower where you can sail down with a parachute. A big fun area which you should not miss on a Tokyo trip.

2018-08-31   VIEW BETWEEN SKYSCRAPERS IN CHICAGO

By | 2018-08-30T19:22:47+00:00 August 30th, 2018|USA|

After visiting the Willis Tower, I took some nachos and a cold diet coke from food trucks, which were on the opposite street side. After that refreshment, I was ready to continue with my photo tour. I saw that niche between the skyscrapers on a place between the Chicago River and the Willis Tower. Never forget wide angle lenses in cities, a requirement for street photography.

2018-08-30   BEACH BAR IN MALTA

By | 2018-08-28T19:29:18+00:00 August 29th, 2018|Malta|

Most of the Maltese beaches, you’ll find on the Northern side. I can’t remember the name, but that bar was typical, Aperol-Sprizz, Hugo, and Campari with ice. Lounge chairs outside, walls covered with reeds and white sun umbrellas for the heat. The mediterranean sea is very clear; you can see the water plants, fish, and starfish with the naked eye. A friend of mine told me, last time he even saw a ray near the beach.

2018-08-29   CRUISING ON THE DANUBE CANAL

By | 2018-08-27T22:33:54+00:00 August 28th, 2018|Vienna|

Beside the different well-known sights in Vienna, it’s a good idea to jump on one of the cruising ships on the Danube Canal and have a good time cruising between graffitis, historic buildings and modern architecture. Some bridges will have artful parapets; you will see bike lanes, Hundertwasser-garbage recycling plant and modern hotels like the Sofitel Vienna.

2018-08-28   WATERWAYS IN STOCKHOLM

By | 2018-08-26T18:37:54+00:00 August 27th, 2018|Stockholm|

It’s interesting how the waterways and canals integrate with Stockholm. In this city, you can feel the harmony between all kinds of traffic in the variety of cars, bikes, boats, buses, taxis, Uber and sometimes Segways. A broad Eldorado where you can choose from, which makes transport more fun.

2018-08-27   PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION

By | 2018-08-25T18:04:05+00:00 August 26th, 2018|London|

The Hayward Gallery in London presented an Andres Gursky exhibition this year. It was one of the most significant photo collections I have ever seen. The sizeable 4×6 meter photos were impressive, one of a kind. Even the most expensive picture of all time, “Rhein II” was there. I took some photos of the collection with my Sony RX1R, the pocketable full frame camera.
