2019-04-23 THE BRIDGE WITH THOUSANDS OF BRICKS

My wife Karin and I rented a motor-scooter in Verona, to get the Italian feel of driving through the city and stopping at interesting points and espresso cafes. The bridge of the photo we saw by accident, a small line was standing to get to the attraction. The Castelvecchio Bridge is nearly 700 years old, built in 1354-1356. With a length of 120 meters, the builders must have used hundred thousands of bricks to build the walls, the way, and the merlons.

2019-04-22 THE PARK WITH THE IRON HORSES

I didn’t know of The Kelpies before I was in Edinburgh. In our bed&breakfast hotel, I saw a brochure with a photo of these two metal horse heads. I knew that I had to see them immediately and take some pictures. It’s a drive of about 45 minutes in a park and adventure area called The Helix.  It didn’t need much time to convince my wife Karin; she was excited about visiting. Since the weather was not the best, we were nearly alone in the area. Of the many photos I shot, the wide-angle is one of my favorites.

2019-04-21 MAIN ENTRY TO THE OLD TOWN OF AVIGNON

The first time I was in Avignon, I was 19 years old. I made a road trip with friends from Vienna to Spain, at Avignon we made a stopover. This city has fascinated me to this day, so I visited Avignon last year with my wife, Karin. From a round-trip bus, I was able to shoot several photos of the city wall and the main entrance.

2019-04-20 SINGAPORE THE OLD AND THE NEW

The photo shows the contrast between the older buildings and the new skyscrapers in Singapore. I don’t know where I shot this photo; I walked around so much. I think it was near a food hall, where I got excellent Chinese beef with chard and Teriyaki sauce accompanied by a green pineapple-lemongrass-ginger drink.

2019-04-19 SUNSET FROM THE CLIFFS OF DUNDEE

On my Scotland list was Edinburgh, cliffs and a Loch. Edinburgh was easy, the destination of the flight. For the cliffs we had to go North, the first meaningful cliffs were near Dundee. First, the car navigation system brought us on a green field with a farmhouse and some cows, not where we wanted to be. Therefore I took the direction in my own hands and found the cliffs before sunset — the best time for photographers. 🙂  I had time to fly with my drone and take some sunset photos directly from the cliffs handheld.

2019-04-18 25 HOURS HOTEL IN COLOGNE

The photo shows the lobby and the way to the elevators in 25 Hours Hotel in Cologne. I was there only one night, on a Friday where I visited the FIBO exhibition on Saturday. Cologne is a dynamic city, worth a visit.

2019-04-17 ABSTRACTION OF A CAR

While waiting for my wife Karin, I was underway with street-photography. At Lido di Venezia, there is a longer boulevard where I was ready to take some lower shutter speed shots of driving cars. I planned to get a photo with an abstraction of a car with Italian buildings in the background. You can see, it worked out. For the shutter speed, the tenth of a second unit makes the difference of the outcome for the blurriness.

2019-04-16 CROSSWALK IN SAN FRANCISCO

We were stopping at a crossroad in San Francisco. I used the waiting time for shooting a photo through the windshield. I was pleased from photographing out of the driving car windows and got some decent shots which surprised me with untypical compositions.

2019-04-15 SUBWAY TUNNEL IN STOCKHOLM

I think there is only a handful of the artist painted subway stations in Stockholm. “Google” after it and take the subway for a station roundtrip — worth a look, more joy waiting for a train with so much creativity.

2019-04-14 THE UR-LEICA IN WETZLAR

A photo of the Ur-Leica shot with a Leica in the Leica World in Wetzlar. A place I can recommend to every photo enthusiast. Full of history, great photos and four display windows where you can look live at the assemblies of cameras and lenses. The original Ur-Leica was designed and built by Oskar Barnack. There was a photo gallery with pictures originally shot by Oskar Barnack with his Ur-Leica. A memorable moment and exhibition.
