2018-04-26   NIGHTLY STREET IN BARCELONA

By | 2018-04-25T19:27:13+00:00 April 26th, 2018|Barcelona|

For this photo, I used my mini-tripod at street-level to shoot that nightly street, which leads to the Placa de les Cascades. I had dinner already, my colleagues were on the way to the hotel, I took the way to the Placa Espana.  It was already 11 pm, traffic was low and the streets deserted. The photo session could begin.

2018-04-11   WALKING OUT OF THE TAPAS RESTAURANT

By | 2018-04-10T19:53:04+00:00 April 11th, 2018|Barcelona|

I had an invitation for a tapas late-lunch in Barcelona. The restaurant was in a side street of the La Rambla so that I couldn’t find it immediately. I consulted Google Maps and followed the instructions. It was a diverse tapas menu, with many small bowls where you could discover spicy sausages, fried calamari, pickles, fries with cheese and smoked beef in Spanish sauce. During a walk through the restaurant, which was a parking garage before :-), I shot a photo of the snack bar.

2018-03-21   NIGHTLY WALK IN BARCELONA

By | 2018-03-20T20:44:02+00:00 March 21st, 2018|Barcelona|

Here I placed my mini-tripod on the floor to get a different view of the walkway with the street-lights. The warm weather on that January night brought an extensive photo tour where I could explore a dozen different locations. I tried all kind of exposure settings, hdr-settings, f-stops and viewing angles. Such photo nights should happen more often!

2018-03-15   THE REMARKABLE PARK

By | 2018-03-14T19:41:29+00:00 March 15th, 2018|Barcelona|

I arrived at the park entry via taxi. There is no Uber in Barcelona; they banned it. Many parts of Park Güell were under construction this year in January. Nevertheless, I was eager to take the shots I had in my mind before entering the park. For the heart of the park, you have to pay an entry fee, a more extensive area surrounding is free of charge. For the Gaudi art-work made from tiles and colored stones, you have to enter the inner circle.

2018-03-13   NIGHTLY WAY IN BARCELONA

By | 2018-03-12T20:41:09+00:00 March 13th, 2018|Barcelona|

I shot his photo near the Placa de Les Cascades on a nightly walk in January. I visited Barcelona to attend the Cisco Live event. The weather was excellent, a light jacket or a sports coat was enough for the evening temperatures. I had my camera mounted with the mini-tripod, so I was ready for night shooting with different compositions.

2018-03-03   JAPANESE GIRL IN PARK GÜELL

By | 2018-02-25T19:08:56+00:00 March 3rd, 2018|Barcelona|

It was my second time in Park Güell. The observation area in the middle of the park was only accessible on the sideways; the rest was under construction. I had to be careful with my photos to avoid site blankets on the pictures. It happened that I could capture that scene with this Japanese girl sitting on a tile-work bench with the typical Park Güell-buildings, and a dove,  in the background. Great design work by Antoni Gaudi.

2018-02-19   WALK THROUGH SAGRADA FAMILIA

By | 2018-02-17T19:51:40+00:00 February 19th, 2018|Barcelona|

Filming the impressive church Sagrada Familia – this was the plan. I placed my YI 4K Action cam on an appropriate bezel which I stuck on a Zhiyun gimbal. I started on the west entrance, walked through into the big hall and went a whole round. Although many tourists were inside, I got a good impression of this one-of-a-kind building. Inside was heavy construction work, the structure of this great church continues and will last until 2026.

 

2018-02-08   NIGHTLY STREET IN BARCELONA

By | 2018-02-07T20:21:00+00:00 February 8th, 2018|Barcelona|

I placed my mini-tripod on the ceiling of that pedestrian bridge and took some shots of the night in Barcelona. I like the different light sources mixed in the street and cars and trees. Although it was January, it was a mild climate, where nothing could stop me from my extended photo tour which brought me from Park Güell to Placa de Les Cascades, which was the location for that picture.

2017-02-17 BUILDING FOR CENTURIES

By | 2017-02-14T22:31:34+00:00 February 17th, 2017|Barcelona|

This is the church for the centuries, a stunning architectural marvel, Gaudi’s masterpiece. The start of construction was 1882 and it is not finished yet, the building activity is ongoing, the anticipated completion date is 2026. Sagrada Familia is one of the most impressive buildings I have ever seen.

NARCOS

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:24+00:00 September 15th, 2016|Barcelona|

I’m currently zooming through season 2 of Narcos on Netflix. What a great series …
Wagner Moura plays his role great, I have looked after other movies with him, but I think nothing can match Narcos…

 

2016-09-15 FAMOUS STADION

Camp Nou is one of the world’s most famous stadions, it’s the home of the great FC Barcelona. Built in 1957 it hasn’t lost its fascination. If you are walking through the empty terraces and staircases,  in the back of your head you can imagine the excitement if those ranks would be full of people.
