2019-05-08 SPEED BIKER

The path at the Danube Canal in Vienna is a shared space, for walkers, roller skaters, and bikers. The speed bikers and the roller skaters are the most interesting to shoot. With my camera at the ready, I placed myself next to a tree at the wayside. When the next fast cyclists passed by I was ready. At slower shutter speed, I was able to capture the effect of the movement on the riders.

2019-05-07 THE GREAT SUN IN BARCELONA

My colleagues were already gone; nobody had the patience to stay with me, the photo-shooter. For me, it was perfect, no hurry to catch the sunset in Barcelona. I took the 2-mile trail to the hotel and had dozens of photos in my cam. Barcelona is fantastic for photographers who like streets, modern architecture and design. So I used every free minute after the congress, to take photos. Even in the night, I was out with my tripod for a photo tour.

2019-05-06 MY SON SHOT WITH THE LEICA

At times, I visit coffee houses in Vienna with my family. There we taste the best espressos, and I usually have my Leica on the table. After a short time, I start with portrait photos, here with the Leica Elmarit 28mm 2.8 V4.

2019-05-05 FROM WALKING TO DRIVING AT THE BEACH

Walking at the beach promenade in Tel Aviv turned fast to driving with the Bird e-scooters. My son was the first with the scooter; then the search continued until we were supplied with the Bird scooters. It was great fun to drive on the lanes, the beach and the sea on the right side and the hotels on the left. The e-scooters were very rare; everybody tried to catch one, a significant demand. Often the left e-scooters were only with a small percentage of load, so unusable for driving. In the end, we searched a bigger radius on the app; it’s worth it.

2019-05-04 THE BIG TUNNEL OF THE WIEN(RIVER)

The Wien(River) is not a real river, more like a broader creek. But the concrete river bed is colossal. The river flows through the middle of the city, through large tunnels. I went for a Sunday walk with my wife Karin in the city park. When Wien(River) I took the opportunity to shoot a few photos.

2019-05-03 KIOSK IN AVIGNON

In the city bypass in Avignon, you drive next to the historic city wall and discover some unique buildings of yesteryear. These scenes always remind me of French crime novels that I liked to see in my youth.

2019-05-02 AFTER MORNING WORKOUT

After my morning workout in the gym, I was walking at the Danube canal to get some fresh air and looking for some photo occasions.  There are miles of graffiti walls, where I shot some runners’ photos, with the person in the speedy foreground and the colorful graffiti in the background.

2019-05-01 SUPERTREE MIRACLE IN SINGAPORE

I can’t remember where I had the opportunity to shoot the Supertrees from above. It was not the official sightseeing platform at the bridge of the Marina Bay Sands, maybe from the rooftop bar on the observation deck of the hotel, where I used my maximum tele with 70mm. Since tripod weren’t allowed, I had to switch to higher ISO with hand-held shooting. However, this illuminated miracle of the changing lights in harmony with music is a one-of-a-kind impression.

2019-04-30 COMING HOME IN VENICE

My wife Karin and I arrived in Venice at about 5 pm. We parked our car in the San Marco garage, which we had booked online. I can recommend booking in advance, this garage is already on the island, from where you can go directly to the water-bus station. The 30-minute drive to the Piazza San Marco showed us the pink sky over Venice, with motor boats of Venetian residents on their way home. First I thought water busses are a bit slow, but in which city you can go from the outer areas to the center within 30 minutes? That’s pretty cool, no traffic jam, no traffic lights, no waiting time. 🙂

2019-04-29 THE CHURCH IN NANTES

The public rental bikes in Nantes have a basket in front of the handlebar, perfect for putting in the photo bag. By bike, we drove around in the old town and stopped in front of the interesting sights to take pictures. And the price of a bicycle for 24 hours was only € 1. The easier way for a photo tour compared to the miles of marches on foot.
