2019-09-06 VAN GOGH MUSEUM GLASS FLOWERS

A good idea from the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam to extend the exhibition hall to artfully decorated experience rooms, where you can see motives of the painter’s pictures rebuilt in glass and multimedia experiences. I like these new concepts to connect tech and haptic art with old paintings. It lifts the museum visit on a new level, more exciting, and a new opportunity for photographers. For this photo I attached a Leica Elmarit 28mm 2.8 lens via Novoflex adapter on a Sony A7R 2.

2019-09-05 ENTRY DOORS IN VENICE

The photo shows typical entry doors in Venice. You are parking the boat before the house, jumping off and going directly in your anteroom. Where else in the world is this possible? Particularly unique design and interior surround every building.

2019-09-04 INDIAN GIRL IN AGRA

Agra is well known for the Taj Mahal. One other attractive sight is the Red Fort. A large building with walls built from red stone. Inside there is a vast garden area where I could shoot a picture from that nice little Indian girl. She was dressed in a beautiful dress and running around on the lawn — a more attractive photo then the red walls.

2019-09-03 SUNRISE IN MALTA

I thought about why the sunrise is so intense in Malta, maybe because there are no mountains which interrupt, only the endless flat sea, where the sun can show its power at the fullest when going up. I got up early to go to the gym in the morning. But before, I went on the pool deck and shot some sunrise photos from the “The Palace” hotel in Sliema.

2019-09-01 DRIVER IN ROTTERDAM

I turned back my head, and at that moment, I saw a driver approaching into the scene. I was fast with my camera and could capture him before he left the screen. It got more excitement to the photo, which would be a bit lackluster otherwise.

2019-08-31 LIGHTHOUSE IN MALTA

I was on a boat, and I had my Fuji X-T1 with me. It is waterproof and dust resistant, the right tool for an adventurous boat-trip. On the way around the coast of Malta, I saw that lighthouse. The photo came out precisely as I had it in my mind, the blue sea on the bottom with the blue sky on the upper half.

2019-08-30 FIELDS BEFORE THE HARVEST

I was happy to have another opportunity to unpack my drone and fly. I was with my wife Karin in the Waldviertel, an area that lives from agriculture and forestry. I was able to shoot a typical picture, with farmyards nestled between cornfields.

2019-08-29 WALKING HOME IN AMSTERDAM

After visiting the market halls the way home to the hotel was already in the dark, lit with light bulbs. Interestingly, nearly no house in Amsterdam has a facade; you can see the thousands of bricks which make up the walls. One of the many things which I like about this city.

2019-08-27 HONG KONG SAMPAN BOAT

The first photo I have ever seen about Hong Kong was with one of these little boats in front of the skyline. Now I know they are named Sampan and are Chinese wooden boats. Then standing at the harbor ferry, suddenly I had the opportunity to shoot a photo with the exact scene, as I had in my head of my first Hong Kong photo.

2019-08-26 PORTRAIT OF MY SON WITH THE LEICA

For portraits, I mostly grab my Leica. A photo of my son Dorian in Rotterdam. Through the photos of my children, I was forced to quickly learn to focus on the Leica rangefinder camera, because their patience is limited. If I take too long with the photo, they lose interest and are no longer a reliable model. 🙂
