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.

2021-02-11 THE TAGADA

A Tagada is an amusement ride for the die-hard. If you stand up, you have to balance against the vibrations. Avoid falling; otherwise, you are the victim of the Tagada, which leads to you are punished from the floor to the seats and back without a chance to get a grip again. This is one of my night photos in Savona, Italy.

2021-01-27 GENOA 2020

A photo of Genoa, in the main square with the fountain and the beginning of the wide streets that start from there. An art gallery, an old church, restaurants, and shopping mile, all concentrated in this quarter.

2020-12-28 THE NARROW STREETS IN GENOA

When my wife Karin and I arrived in Genoa, we chose a parking garage at the port. The way to the city center led through a maze of narrow streets—a good opportunity for me to photograph the undiscovered Genoa.

2020-12-19  TRE CIME DI LAVAREDO II

I photographed this landscape from a wide variety of angles. There are always new, lasting impressions. The natural elements of rocks, stones, snow, and clouds form here rarely seen formations like from another planet.

2020-12-14 THE DOME IN COMO

While walking through the old town of Como, one comes across the main square with the cathedral. A unique experience to look at this building, with the archways, the towers, and the fantastic lighting.
