2019-07-11 BIRTHDAY OF MY WIFE

At my wife Karin’s birthday we visited the open-air roof-top bar of the Ritz Carlton in Vienna. After we sat down on the couch and ordered the drinks, it started to rain. We flew under some umbrellas, where a waiter suggested to change the location to the ground floor bar. The ambiance was very nice, and I used the situation to take out my Leica and made some birthday photos.

2019-07-09 A CATHEDRAL IN TOULOUSE

We lived on the pedestrian street and saw the cathedral above the rooftops in Toulouse. First, we had to overcome a construction site to get inside. The massive porticoes let me reach for my camera in amazement. I was reminded of the Tolkien films Lord of the Rings when I saw the columns and roofs.

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.

2019-07-06 BAR IN SAN FRANCISCO

The rooftop bar at the Hilton in San Francisco is a top location. Full-size windows give you a view from the bottom of the floor to the roof where you can see the whole city in front of you. There you get the cosmopolitan feeling of megacities when looking at the sea of lights.

2019-07-05 LAGO MAGGIORE SWITZERLAND

A Swiss lake stretching from Ticino to Italy. I did the tour from Ascona across the Italian border with an e-bike. It was a 20-kilometer drive that I used for a swim in the lake and was able to shoot some photos — an impressive landscape, between the foothills of the Swiss mountains merging into the warm Mediterranean landscape.

2019-07-04 STREETS OF PRAGUE AERIAL

Prague is a historical city in the heart of Europe. From the Zizkov TV tower, you have a great view and the opportunity to photograph the city from above. Especially where it is difficult and usually forbidden to fly in densely populated areas with drones. Thus, a good substitute.

2019-07-02 COASTAL ROAD AT THE DEAD SEA

Driving the coast road along the Dead Sea is a highlight in Israel. When parking to enjoy the view, you should only take the prepared parking niches. Many signs warn against the devils towards the Dead Sea, where it can come through the encrusted ground to deep holes, which are not recognized when walking.

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.

2019-06-27 PINK’S HOT DOG IN LA

The moment I said to my wife Karin that I was hungry, we happened to drive past Pink’s Hotdog. I had to do another lap for a parking lot. Then I was finally able to order a HotDog with sauerkraut, mustard, and chili sauce. My wife was full after the first, I stood again in the series and ordered an extra-size hot dog.
