2019-05-13 BUDDHA IN NEW YORK

By |2019-05-12T20:50:25+01:00May 13th, 2019|New York|

I would never have seen the Buddha if the bus had not stopped at a red light and I had not sat on the first floor. I took the opportunity to capture a picture of the beautiful Buddha. For great photo experiences always keep your eyes open.

2018-12-23   FOUNTAIN IN CENTRAL PARK

By |2018-12-22T19:44:54+01:00December 23rd, 2018|New York|

I looked at many of the attractions in Central Park. Many of them I knew from the movies. First I visited the John Lennon Memorial, then I arrived at the Bethesda Terrace with the view to the Angel of the Waters fountain. I decided to make a black and white photo in post-processing, to make a difference to the hundred of Internet-photos which already exist of this attraction. I think it would be an exciting photo-competition: Bring new life to over-photographed sights!

2017-11-22  HAMPTONS WITH SKY

By |2017-11-21T18:56:27+01:00November 22nd, 2017|New York|

When I am in a new region, I always want to see the typical and famous sights, for which it is renown. For the Hamptons, these are the dunes and the sea. It wasn’t so easy to get access because many private properties paved the way. At the public beach entry, I could see the dunes. I prepared for shooting, and soon I had the first shots of the Hamptons in my camera.  🙂

2017-09-22  NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM

By |2017-09-21T20:33:00+01:00September 22nd, 2017|New York|

It was not really night, but later afternoon in the NY Museum of Natural History. Standing on the gallery I shot that photo of the famous elephants in that big museum hall. Walking through the exhibition rooms I often thought about that funny movie with Ben Stiller “Night at the Museum”.  🙂

2017-09-09  NEW YORK CITY BLACK AND WHITE

By |2017-09-02T18:56:32+01:00September 9th, 2017|New York|

“New York City ist die heißeste Stadt, wenn man einen neuen Boyfriend und ein Hotelzimmer hat.
NYC ist mein Lieblingsplatz, weil die Leute, die ich da kenne, sind ein wahrer Schatz.”

“New York City is the hottest place
For a honeymoon in a hotel room
New York City is my favorite place
‘Cause I know so many people with a golden face”  song text of “New York” by Nina Hagen.

2017-06-22  MANHATTAN IN THE NIGHT

By |2017-06-05T19:45:36+01:00June 22nd, 2017|New York|

I wanted to make the classical New York shot a bit different. I used darker/black colors, increased the glowing lights, turned the sky grayer. This style gives the pulsating city a look like Gotham City in Batman. 🙂  I did that shot on the Rockefeller observation deck “Top of the Rock,” best place to get the Empire State on a photo.

2017-05-17  THE ROCK OBSERVATION DECK IN NEW YORK

By |2017-05-15T20:53:34+01:00May 17th, 2017|New York|

There are two great observation decks in New York, the Empire State Building, and the Rockefeller Center Deck. The Empire State is a bit higher, 86th floor, 320/1050 m/f compared to the Rockefeller “Top of the Rock” with 67th to the 70th floor, 259/850 m/f. On the Empire you are more in the center of Manhattan, the Rock shows you the central park if you look north. And the cool thing, both have outside decks. 🙂

2017-04-11  PATH TO THE SEA ON THE HAMPTONS

By |2017-04-09T17:18:20+01:00April 11th, 2017|New York|

Loose wooden fences, some hassocks coming out of the sand, and a sandy path to the sea, and a blue sky – a typical scenery of the Hamptons. I took this shot at the beach of South Hampton; it was hard to find a place near the sea, which you could enter, most of the area are private properties. However, never give up, and often you will find what you are looking for 🙂 I am excited again and again how beautiful photos the little Leica D-Lux 5 makes. 😉

2016-09-19 ARCHITECTURE IN NEW YORK

By |2017-01-10T20:15:24+01:00September 19th, 2016|New York|

Where to begin and where to stop with shooting pictures of architecture in NY ?  I tried to make the pictures a bit more abstract, with the result that this can be a picture of any bigger city  🙂  But with NY, nearly every angle and perspective have been photographed already.
