Lake Garda is a trendy place for tourists from Switzerland, Italy, and Austria. You can walk along the wooden walkways and leave everyday life behind. Many areas are for swimming and surfing, and a good bar is not far.

In the old town of Como, you are quickly enclosed by the magnificent facades of the monumental houses. Entry for cars is forbidden. Therefore, you can fully focus on taking photos.

2021-05-18 THE ICONIC LANDSCAPE OF CINQUE TERRE

The coastal towns of the Cinque Terre are great photo opportunities. Many photographers had placed their tripods at the viewing platform to bring the best frames to the photos. I used a wide-angle lens to put the whole area in the scene, to cover the coast, the city, and the sea.

2021-05-16 BRIDGE IN VERONA

My wife Karin and I rented a scooter and were able to explore Verona. We stopped at this bridge, and we were impressed by the structure—one of the many jewels to be discovered in Verona.

2021-05-04 CHILDHOOD VACATIONS

These scenes from Savona reminded me of my childhood vacation. The beach with the carousel, the lighting in the area, and the ice cream stand. Certain things don’t change in Italy.

2021-03-27 BLACK AND WHITE WITH AN €30 CAMERA

At times I set myself the task of taking night photos with an inexpensive point-and-shoot camera. In Como, I had the 12-year-old Panasonic DMC-FX 150 with me. I was able to buy it on eBay for € 30. The great thing is it has built-in a Leica Vario-Elmarit lens. The exciting thing about the task is to try to get the best out of the existing possibilities.

2021-03-21 THE WILD DOLOMITES

The Dolomites are a wild mountain range, jagged rocks, and raw stone dominate. I shot this photo on the way to the “Tre Cime di Lavaredo.” A drizzle had already started; we weren’t put off and could still fill our photo album.

2021-03-05 GENOVA RESTAURANT

Downstairs to a restaurant in Genova, with many Italian with palm trees, wrought iron grille, parasol, and the warm evening wind. I always think of Billy Joel’s song “Scenes from an Italien restaurant”.

2021-02-28 CHURCH AT NIGHT IN ITALY

Italian cities at night bring the best atmosphere to your photos. The colors and shadows sit perfectly, a joy for a photographer. I think the Leica M240 is the predestined camera for Italian street photography. The photo shows a church in Genova.

2021-02-13 HOTEL LOBBY IN VENICE

I think it was two years ago when I went to this hotel with my wife, Karin. The room prices were too high, so we only paid a visit to the bar. We took Averna with ice cubes and got wasabi nuts. Then we took a tour of the floors, combined with photoshoots. To my shame, I don’t remember the name of the hotel.
