2018-01-30   HOUSE IN ST GALLEN

By | 2018-01-27T15:53:15+00:00 January 30th, 2018|Generic|

Beneath the Swiss cheese and Swiss chocolate, I found many of the houses and buildings in Switzerland have a unique style. Clean lines, unobtrusive adornments, a timeless overall architectural impression.

2018-01-28   VENICE FROM ST MARK’S CAMPANILE

By | 2018-01-28T18:27:55+00:00 January 28th, 2018|Generic|

It’s a good idea to visit Venice in January. The weather is ok for sightseeing, and the best, the long lines at the entrances of the famous sights are much shorter. For going up to St. Mark’s Campanile I had to wait only about 15 minutes. On the top, you have a great view of Venice in all four cardinal directions. The weather was not sunny at all, slightly grey and rainy, but it didn’t stop me from taking photos of the roofs and buildings of this great city.

2018-01-09   THE DOME EDINBURGH

By | 2018-01-09T21:09:31+00:00 January 9th, 2018|Generic|

Waiting for the reservation, …  The Dome in Edinburgh is a restaurant, cafe, and bar. An artfully decorated building out- and inside. It’s a tourist hotspot, what is a “good” thing in that case. Shooting pictures is welcomed, nobody is bothered by it. Patience is required, to get the right people on your photo.  🙂

2018-01-08   BURANO IN BLACK AND WHITE

By | 2018-01-07T12:10:12+00:00 January 8th, 2018|Generic|

Burano is that famous Italian fishermen’s village with the house facades painted in red, yellow, blue and green, which makes it predestinated for color photos. But in this case, I got a bit too much noise. Then it’s a good idea to make it black and white, where the noise doesn’t harm and often adds to the impression and style of the scenery.

2017-12-18   THE WALL OF MDINA

By | 2017-12-17T09:50:27+00:00 December 18th, 2017|Generic|

Mdina is an old(built in 8th century BC), historical town in Malta with a population of 3oo. Surrounded by that massive city wall, for which an extensive reservation was undertaken in the last years. Mdina got some prominence in the Game of Thrones community. Some episodes have been filmed there. The Mdina gate and the Pjazza, Mesquita were shooting spots.

2017-12-14   THE HILLS OF THE ALPINE UPLAND

By | 2017-12-13T19:48:34+00:00 December 14th, 2017|Generic|

The alpine upland is starting with hills and woods. Then it transitions to mountains of about 2000 meters, where the real Alps have arrived. The mountain chains lead to the Grossglockner, the highest peak of Austria with 3,798 m (12,461 ft).

2017-11-26  SAIL AWAY

By | 2017-11-26T13:08:42+00:00 November 26th, 2017|Generic|

Ain’t no lions or tigers ain’t no mamba snake
Just the sweet watermelon and the buckwheat cake
Everybody is as happy as a man can be
Climb aboard little wog sail away with me
 
Sail away sail away
We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston Bay
Sail away-sail away
We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston Bay

“Sail Away”  © song by Randy Newman

 

On the photo it’s the Chicago Pier with Lake Michigan, Charleston Bay is 1000 miles away. However, except for the high parking fees, 🙂 Chicago pier is a great place to take photos. On one direction great Lake Michigan with sinking sun. On the opposite side the skyline of the city. And the pier itself. If you want to take the City-River tour, it also starts there, highly recommended.

2017-11-01  LITTLE VENICE IN LONDON

By | 2017-11-01T09:19:35+00:00 November 1st, 2017|Generic|

The flight from San Francisco to Vienna was 2 hours late. So I missed the connecting flight in London. 😐 The next plane I got was in ten hours. I decided to take the airport express to Paddington and walk around. In my business bag, I had my Leica D-Lux 5. Looking at Google Maps, I saw that Little Venice is very near to the railway station. I started an exploring trip and got great views of that unknown part of London.

2017-10-18  EARLY EVENING IN A BATHING RESORT

By | 2017-10-17T18:36:51+00:00 October 18th, 2017|Generic|

This bathing resort in Pörtschach am Wörther See has it all. Green meadows for the deck chairs, drinking water quality of the lake, wooden jetties, slides for the young and young at heart, 🙂 a cafe with cold wheat beer. And in the early evening the right place for a photo session.

2017-10-06  HORSES IN A CURCH

By | 2017-10-06T17:20:00+00:00 October 6th, 2017|Generic|

Venice, one of a kind in the world. In some parts of the city, each building, street, lantern, and canal are worth to stop, to look, to explore, to take photos. I entered Basilica di San Marco and been blown away, a never-ending, amazing, holy, impression art gallery. One of the wonders of the world !! On the upper floor, I saw those copper-brass-horses, built in lifesize.  😎
