2019-11-05 THE FRENCH CHATEAU

When I was in the Medoc with my wife Karin, the daily tour was driving from Chateau to Chateau and shooting photos. A unique experience was seeing the extensive wine gardens where the Bordeaux wine grows. Every few kilometers, one Chateau follows after the other. Some offer wine tasting, those I liked most. 🙂

2019-09-24 TOULOUSE CITY HALL

My wife Karin was standing in the line for ice cream. I used the time for photo shooting in Toulouse. I had the city hall in front of me and chose a wide-angle lens to capture the big building. As my wife came back with the ice cream, I had already finished my shootings. It was funny ice; the French icemen made patterns of hearts and flowers of the ice toppings, which made eating it even more enjoyable.

2019-08-25 BRIDGE IN TOULOUSE

The public 24-hour bikes in French cities are an excellent thing. Often the price is only 1 euro. The best thing is to get the photo spots stress-free; usually, a basket is attached to where the photo bag fits perfectly. We were able to do so in Toulouse an extensive tour in the evening and stop according to desire and mood.

2019-08-05 LIGHT SHOW IN AVIGNON

The Palais des Papes brings a light show every evening in the vast courtyard. My wife Karin and I were not sure if we should attend. We decided to do it and did not regret it. I can tell you; this is an excellent multi-media show of light, projected movies on the palace walls, lasers, and an incredible soundscape.

2019-07-30 SCULPTOR IN AIX-EN-PROVENCE II

The second photo from the sculptor-series, where the head is formed from clay and the wet hands of the artist. Fascinating to see, that shapeless material changes to sculptures.

2019-07-27 SCULPTOR IN AIX-EN-PROVENCE

During a big bike tour with the urban e-bikes, we spotted a large group of spectators in a busy square. Our interest aroused, we also wanted to see what to admire. A group of sculptors made an elaborate face of blocks of stone, with hammer and chisel. Also, an artist sculpted a portrait of a present lady from a rock in real-time — an excellent performance.

2019-07-25 AUGMENTED REALITY IN AVIGNON

When I visited the Pope’s Palace in Avignon, the tour guide was a tablet with headphones. There the route of the sightseeing tour was available. During the stay in the rooms and halls, suddenly the display changed and showed the life and bustle of the former knight time. There was a banquet in the dining room and a wedding in the ceremonial hall — augmented reality at its best. At the same time, a computer game was also integrated into the tablet — the top-of-the-notch multimedia experience.

2019-07-24 CITY OF TOULOUSE

Narrow, winding streets and cafes on the roadside bring the French culture to life. Drinking a glass of wine, shooting photos, and walking with my wife Karin was my daily nightly schedule in Toulouse.

2019-07-09 A CATHEDRAL IN TOULOUSE

We lived on the pedestrian street and saw the cathedral above the rooftops in Toulouse. First, we had to overcome a construction site to get inside. The massive porticoes let me reach for my camera in amazement. I was reminded of the Tolkien films Lord of the Rings when I saw the columns and roofs.

This hall is home to the Les Machines de l’île in Nantes. There is an exhibition area with screenings and a balcony with a 360 ° view. From an observation deck, one can observe the emergence of new machines, which are handmade with plans, wood and metal constructions and electric motors.
