2019-07-19 MILAN PIAZZA DEL DUOMO

By |2019-07-18T19:15:16+01:00July 18th, 2019|Milan|

Even sometimes you can benefit from the tourists on Piazza del Duomo. The place is crowded all the time. With some individual compositions, you can put tourists in a new light like this Asian girl doing smartphone shots of her girlfriend.

2019-06-07 RAILWAY STATION MILANO CENTRALE BLACK AND WHITE

By |2019-06-07T06:38:53+01:00June 7th, 2019|Milan|

I like the flair of old Italian railway stations. They remind me of Italian movies from Federico Fellini or Vittorio de Sica. Going through the halls and looking at the hectic life of the crowd, some organized chaos. Some travelers have long train journeys; others take the suburban train to their hometown. Everyone smells the scent of the tracks and the oil on the edge of the rails.

2019-05-23 APPLE STORE IN MILAN

By |2019-05-21T20:17:14+01:00May 23rd, 2019|Milan|

Where is the most spectacular Apple store in the world? I think Milan belongs to the top ranks. The glass wall with the integrated waterfall on a downstairs located shop is an architectural masterpiece. I didn’t search after it, I saw the store by accident and positioned myself to find the perfect composition.

2019-04-02 ON THE ROOF OF MILAN CATHEDRAL

By |2019-04-01T19:45:12+01:00April 2nd, 2019|Milan|

The walking tour I will never forget is on the roof of Milan Cathedral. You are so near to the architecture; you can grab the stones and concrete structures. I admire more and more the architects and workers who have built that marvel. You can plan at least 2 hours, don’t think twice, when you are in Milan, attend this tour. You have to pay a bit extra for the tickets, I was unsure first, but then glad that I did it. The same is true for my wife Karin, and my brother and sister in law.

2019-02-20  GALLERIA VITTORIO EMANUELE II

By |2019-02-19T19:52:58+01:00February 20th, 2019|Milan|

The hot spot of Milano is beneath the Piazza del Duomo. At the entrance lies the Campari bar. That’s a good starting point, to drink a Campari Soda with ice and then take the tour. To avoid too many people I shot that “high-floor” photo with the middle layer of the building and above. One of the over-photographed buildings on the web, so it’s a good idea to search after new compositions.

2019-02-09   VIEW OVER MILAN

By |2019-02-08T20:28:03+01:00February 9th, 2019|Milan|

From where to get this great view over Milan? You have to enter the roof exploration tour of the Milan Cathedral. After going up with an elevator,  you walk on narrow paths directly on the roof, seeing the statues and concrete ornaments and pillars near you.

2018-12-29   ON THE ROOF OF MILAN CATHEDRAL

By |2018-12-29T10:38:21+01:00December 29th, 2018|Milan|

I took the visitors package for Milan Cathedral with the roof exploration and entry in the church via a circular staircase. Walking on the roof is spectacular, so near to the cathedral combined with a great city view. This is the best way to recognize the architectural masterpiece. You can see hundreds of details that can not be seen from the street.

2018-12-11   PIAZZA DEL DUOMO

By |2018-12-11T23:10:19+01:00December 11th, 2018|Milan|

The most visited place in Milan, very touristic, where to find a photo spot? For me it was this picture, taking photos from people taking photos, a fresh perspective of the Piazza del Duomo. Then I was walking around, searching for the next motives. I found more and more, unusual angles, wide angles, and different foregrounds.

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

By |2018-11-03T22:11:02+01:00November 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+01:00October 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.
