2018-05-10   SHEIKH ZAYED MOSQUE IN THE NIGHT

This was the last photo of my session at the Sheikh Zayed mosque. I was impressed by the lighting of the towers and domes. At the exit I took my belongings form a safe and my wife gave back the veil. We went to the parking place and took our way back to Dubai. Even on the highway, I saw many illuminated mosques which were fascinating, I will come back for sure.

2018-05-09   UNDER A BRIDGE IN LITTLE VENICE LONDON

Little Venice in London is worth a visit, its unique boats and canals bring some variety to the urban jungle. On the riverside are cool bars and restaurants. I even found a bar on a boat where I had a pint of cider.

2018-05-08   CAFE MUSEUM IN VIENNA

Vienna is famous for its cafes which often represent old-fashioned stylings of the interiors. Wooden walls, seat covers soft as velvet, and tables with marble tabletops. The coffee is a matter of taste, I prefer the short and strong Italian espresso, there are only few coffee houses which offer this sort of coffee. A good tip is to look at the coffee machine, if they have an instant-coffee-machine, then avoid it.

2018-05-06   SWAROVKSI SHOP WINDOW

Yesterday evening I was walking with my wife Karin in the first district city center of Vienna. First, we visited a rooftop bar with the hope, to get some cool city shots, but the view wasn’t exciting enough. Then we looked at the shop windows in the Kärnter Straße. We were impressed by the decorations of the Swarovski Crystal World shop, it gathered attention from all passengers, artfully decorated.

2018-05-05   CHAPEL IN EDINBURGH

I got the info form our landlord during breakfast. He recommended going to Rosslyn Chapel which would only be 15 minutes away from the hotel. Although it wasn’t on my list, I took planned the visit and was excited about the building. One of the top spots in Edinburgh, it was the chapel you can see in the movie “Da Vinci Code” with Tom Hanks.

2018-05-03   WATERSHOW BURJ KHALIFA

After a guardian warned me off the grounds because I was photographing with a tripod, I returned to a hand-held session. I was lucky that I reached the right time when the water show in front of the Burj Khalifa started. I had to go back many meters so that I could get the whole tower in the photo. No easy task with the height of 828 meters.

2018-05-02   MALL IN DUBAI

Even the shopping malls in Dubai are an attraction, spacious with many levels and hundreds of shops make the heart beat faster for shopping addicts. I took the opportunity to shoot wide-angle photos which represent the dimension of these malls. And another goodie, the parking is free, no fees to pay. 🙂

2018-05-01   PIAZZA SAN MARCO IN THE NIGHT

I read the news today, Venice is overcrowded, they made turnstiles to keep the flood of tourists in check. I can recommend going there on 2nd January. The weather is a bit colder but ok, and tourists are manageable. The only disadvantage for a photographer, the sky is mostly grey. For my photo-session I was out at about 11 pm, most cafes close at that time. It gave a unique feel and look of Piazza San Marco.
