2018-11-04   GOING OUT OF THE RAILWAY STATION IN MILAN

By | 2018-11-03T22:11:02+00:00 November 4th, 2018|Milan|

After the 40-minute drive with the airport express train, I entered the railway station Milano Centrale. Sprawling halls with arcs and pillars, the ravages of time are visible, but all in all, an excellent experience for a railway station.

2018-10-22   THE PILLARS OF THE MILAN CATHEDRAL

By | 2018-10-21T19:32:32+00:00 October 22nd, 2018|Milan|

The big European cathedrals and domes are impressive buildings. Planned with gigantic dimensions, made from huge stones and concrete, show the signs of stability. Built for the millenniums with overwhelming sizes. I was in Milan with my wife and brother- and sister-in-law for one day only, and the most part we spent on the roof and pathways and hall of the Milan Cathedral.

2018-08-22   CANALS OF MILAN

By | 2018-08-21T20:24:04+00:00 August 21st, 2018|Milan|

I had some roundtrips to find a parking lot at the Canals of Milan. It is very crowded during the nighttime, and everyone wants a good time at the water with a cool breeze. I could use the car-sharing platform Car2Go in Milan, though my registration city is Vienna. A good thing that you can use the car rentals in all European cities where Car2Go is active. Formerly they offered Smarts only; now you get Mercedes A-class too.

2018-05-31   MILAN COURTYARD

By | 2018-05-31T10:31:46+00:00 May 31st, 2018|Milan|

Walking around in Milan and going into the palatial buildings brings you Italian courtyards with statues, pillars, and interesting architecture. Don’t forget your wide-angle lens, a must to capture the scenery.

2017-11-13  ASIAN GIRL IN MILAN

By | 2017-11-12T18:09:43+00:00 November 13th, 2017|Milan|

Milan, a diverse city with many Asian tourists and residents. My city-walking-photography tour brought me to small alleyways, narrow streets, and little bars and restaurants. I saw this walking girl by accident. I was ready to shoot at the right time. Luckily, I had my zoom lens with me. Without you often don’t have the time for changing lenses or bodies, for street photography, I prefer zooms.

2017-07-21  NIGHT LIFE IN MILAN

By | 2017-07-20T22:15:45+00:00 July 21st, 2017|Milan|

At the canals in Milan, the whole area is a pulsating flow of Nighthawks, the cafes and bars are full, Italian night life at its best. Combined with the atmosphere of the buildings and the cobblestone streets it’s a must see destination for a Milan visit.  🙂

2016-12-08 MILAN IN THE NIGHT

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:21+00:00 December 8th, 2016|Milan|

We googled after the “little Venice” in Milan and then we took a Car2Go-Smart to get there. This is really cool, if you are a member of Car2Go you can use these cars in Milan in the same way as in your home town. It’s particularly useful with the limited parking spaces, with the Smarts it’s lot easier to find free spaces. 🙂

2016-09-22 FRUITS IN MILAN

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:24+00:00 September 22nd, 2016|Milan|

In Milan I went from museums to exhibitions to churches to piazzas …   In this exhibition, I think that was at the Expo, those walls were light-painted with colorful fruits. An impressive experience.

2016-08-24 IMPRESSIONS OF MALTA

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:25+00:00 August 24th, 2016|Milan|

If you drive through the Maltese streets you cannot overlook the balconies, mostly each house has one. Those are relicts of the Moorish Epoch, they are built that women can hide from to be seen by the streets while at the same time they could observe the street scenes. Also the balconies with open windows provide a better circulation of fresh air in the Maltese houses, because windows are often only on the front and on the back of the flats.

2016-08-05 ELECTRONIC WALL IN MILAN

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:25+00:00 August 5th, 2016|Milan|

This wall wasn’t for real but did a good multimedia impression after walking into this room at the Expo. It was a representation of news feeder, stock market quotes, real time information and video wall, all happening at the same time and a bit overwhelming  🙂
