2019-04-26 THE WHITE HALL AT THE LEICA WORLD WETZLAR

By |2019-04-25T20:05:52+01:00April 26th, 2019|Germany|

After entering the Leica World building you arrive in a white hall. Around the corner on the left are world famous Leica photos digitized with illuminated background. In the middle is an exhibition of historic cameras and at the end on the right side, the factory tour begins. You can look through four big windows to watch the process of building lenses and cameras in real time. Worth a visit if you are near Frankfurt or Cologne.

The photo shows the lobby and the way to the elevators in 25 Hours Hotel in Cologne. I was there only one night, on a Friday where I visited the FIBO exhibition on Saturday. Cologne is a dynamic city, worth a visit.

2019-04-14 THE UR-LEICA IN WETZLAR

By |2019-04-12T21:28:36+01:00April 14th, 2019|Germany|

A photo of the Ur-Leica shot with a Leica in the Leica World in Wetzlar. A place I can recommend to every photo enthusiast. Full of history, great photos and four display windows where you can look live at the assemblies of cameras and lenses. The original Ur-Leica was designed and built by Oskar Barnack. There was a photo gallery with pictures originally shot by Oskar Barnack with his Ur-Leica. A memorable moment and exhibition.

2019-03-22 BAR IN MUNICH

By |2019-03-21T19:50:49+01:00March 22nd, 2019|Germany|

Motel One is a new, stylish hotel chain in Europe, mostly located in Germany and Austria. They have mastered to offer excellent pricing for well-designed hotels at top locations. As I visited a Fujitsu event in Munich, I stayed for two nights in a Motel One. I had the chance to experience the bar on the high floor with a broad view over Munich, at the balcony I made some handheld shots of the city. I had two Averna with ice and some funny conversations with Swiss account managers from Fujitsu.

2018-11-17   BEER AT THE VIKTUALIENMARKT

By |2018-11-15T20:25:31+01:00November 17th, 2018|Germany|

How cool is this? A public alehouse stands at the Viktualienmarkt in Munich. The guy behind the bar draws many pints and 1-liter beer glasses (“Eine Maß”) in advance so that the guests don’t have to wait. A steady come and go, even I did a pint at noon with a portion of weisswurst (“Weißwurst”).

2018-11-09   ICM IN MUNICH

By |2018-11-08T23:04:40+01:00November 9th, 2018|Germany|

While visiting the Fujitsu Forum in Munich, I also used the time to shoot some photos. The International Congress Center is a top-notch modern building complex, well suited for significant events. It was a high-quality arrangement among others with presentations about blockchain and nex-gen flash storages.

2017-12-30   BERLIN ARCHITECTURE III

By |2017-12-30T20:53:59+01:00December 30th, 2017|Germany|

The building on the photo was near the Spree, a river which flows through the city. I was on a hop-on-hop-off boat, where I could get out at the exciting locations. The area with those modern architecture buildings was a must for me. With the Spree river-trip, I had my Leica X2 and Leica D-Lux 5 with me, from time to time I like it, to restrict myself to a specific camera-brand or shooting style.  🙂

2017-11-08  BERLIN ARCHITECTURE

By |2017-11-07T23:48:17+01:00November 8th, 2017|Germany|

What did I like most about Berlin? The architecture and the Currywurst.  🙂  Both went hand in hand, photographing the modern buildings with a Leica X2 camera, eating at a wurst stand and drinking cold beer. That’s Germany!  😎

2017-06-02  ROBOTICS FUN

By |2017-05-31T20:04:31+01:00June 2nd, 2017|Germany|

Attending the Citrix World Conference in Bonn was technically fascinating, but the fun part got not too short. The great attraction was this robot, named NOX. He could walk around, dance to music, speak with people, and had a good time. When he was in full swing with walking, the crowd in front of him cleared very fast. But he was a big guy with an iron heart of gold. 🙂
