2019-10-25 NIGHT SCENE AT PIAZZA DUOMO IN MILAN

When to shoot black and white photos? Walking around on the Piazza Duomo in Milan is built for b&w. The facades of the buildings with the nightly lamps give the classical shot of Italian cities. It reminds me of the films by Federico Fellini.

2019-10-23 HOUSES IN ITALY

What can top the style of Italian cityscapes? The architecture combined with color and style is unique, sliced plants complement the appearance. For me, every time an opportunity for taking photos.

2019-10-20 THE ITALIAN CITY OF GRADO

Grado is one of the cities you visit if you want to go to the nearest point of the sea from middle and northern Europe. There are Trieste, Lignano, Caorle, and others at the Northern Adria. But Grado has this unique old town and size, where you can walk around in the city without getting too much exhausted. Many roads have bike lanes, restaurants, and bars line the roadside. For those interested, there are also arts and crafts shops.

2019-10-09 SUDDENLY THE VERONA ARENA WAS HERE

The road through the old town of Verona, which we had taken, suddenly ended in front of the magnificent Arena of Verona. The forecourt is a park lined with Italian bars and restaurants. Visit in the evening; then, you can see the arena and the park with impressive lighting.

2019-07-14 BIKER IN BOLZANO

We came back from Merano by train. It was already evening when we went out of the railway station. On the way to the hotel, we were exploring the streets of Bolzano, where I shot the last photos, before going to bed after the 12-hour trip.

2019-07-08 LAKE COMO

Como achieved fame through George Clooney’s residence in the area. Maybe that was the reason that my wife Karin suggested spending a few days in Como. After a 10-hour drive by car, we reached the city. The first evening we had to go for a walk on the lake promenade. There I was able to shoot photos of Lake Como in the evening colors.

2019-06-30 THE ITALIAN BAR IN COMO

Italian bars with Campari, Averna, and espresso. My favorite drinks in Italy. Bars and restaurants surround the main square with the Duomo in Como. Some very touristy, others with the Italian flair and Campari bottles in the display. I chose this one to spend my evening.

2019-06-24 WALKING THROUGH BOLZANO IN THE NIGHT

The markets and shops have already closed, you can still see on the sidewalks and streets remnants of the busy life during the day. The houses are lit and occasionally night owls go back and forth between the bars and wine pubs.

2019-04-24 THE TEMPLATE FOR ASSASSIN’S CREED

The first thought when I walked into this courtyard was that the developers of Assassin’s Creed went over here and got the ideas for the design of their buildings. My son Maro would have enjoyed it, he played all parts of Assassin’s Creed and is a big fan of the game. A good reason to visit Verona. 🙂
