Fujifilm X100 @ F8, 1/125 sec., ISO 100
Back for a quickie on this week’s photo challenge. Summer, sun, sea and a roofed beach chair. What more can I ask for? Captured back in summer last year at the seaside of Cuxhaven, Northern Germany. … Kurz zurück für einen schnellen Beitrag zur dieswöchigen (Kann man das so sagen?) Photo Challenge. Sommer, Sonne, SeeContinue reading “WPC: Summer Lovin’”
Detail of Munich’s Olympiastadion. Fujifilm X100 @ F16, 1/42 sec., ISO 100
This will always file amongst the Top Ten of all the pictures I did. Shot almost from the hip back in august last year with my then permanent accompanist the Fuji X100 when strolling down market street in San Francisco. What a strong tool that camera was… Fujifilm X100 @ F8, 1/125 sec., ISO 100
Abandonned trolley in an underground carpark in the Olympic Village, Munich.
This is one of the most lovely shops I ever saw, Goorin Hatmakers on North Beach, San Francisco. When I first saw it, I really didn’t know that the company is running over two dozens of branches all over the U.S. headed by three stores in San Francisco alone. Have a look, isn’t it beautiful?Continue reading “Travelling #4 (Part III): Goorin Bros. Hatmakers, North Beach”
Let’s take a break from San Francisco. Saw this upright old lady standing alone and had to take a line of frames. Seeing a vintage vehicle always makes me wonder when exactly cars ceased being beautiful. Must have been somewhen in the late seventies I guess. The owner was a very friendly guy who wouldContinue reading “Vintage Beauties #1: Opel P4, 1935”
Some snapshots from Chinatown, which of course we just had to visit. It’s one of the leading tourist attractions of the city and with 80.000 inhabitants it’s the second largest Chinese community in the world. (The largest community can be found in a place called China.) Entering this cultural microcosmos is more than impressive, aContinue reading “Travelling #4 (Part II): San Francisco Chinatown”
It’s 11.30 pm. Out go the lights. (Sigh of relief) Until next year.
Finally, here it comes. The first row of snapshots taken during my last trip to San Fran. As before I was truly impressed by the beauty of the city as well as by its multifacedness. At first when booking the trip I wanted to locate directly at Fisherman’s Wharf, the touristic centre of the cityContinue reading “Travelling #4 (Part I): San Francisco first impressions”
Yes, I did another extreme low angle shooting on a high rise business building. But this time it wasn’t the beloved O2-Tower. Actually, this is just one of the digital test shots. The real thing was done with my analog panoramic camera.
Spent a weekend on a farm in East-Bavaria, pretty close to the Austrian border and saw this…
Another detail from Marienplatz tubestation. I adore the truly 1970s colour combination of dark-green and orange.

In the light of current events: high water at the Isarauen, Munich.
Had the opportunity to watch Vienna-based Sixties-R&B-band “The Attention!” (yes, with exclamation mark) live on stage recently. Light was dull, the band was dressed in black and unfortunately, so was the venue. Therefore ISOs had to reach the max which of course is showing in the quality of the pictures. Did I mention? Fantastic bandContinue reading “The ATTENTION!”
At the river Rhine.
Even though I’m living in Munich, my heart was with you BVB. Too bad it didn’t help.
Another detail of a vintage Volkswagen-Bus, or Bully, as they are nicknamed in Germany.

289 Ford Mustang.
Now what is this? An antique sunlamp? An unidentified flying object? No, it’s an old PRIMAFOT FOTOMATIC JUNIOR photobooth that I found in a junk shop in a Black Forest small town recently. Completely with lots of dust and some dead insects inside. Unfortunately in incomplete and definitely-not-working condition. But still it just looksContinue reading “The PRIMAFOT junk-shop find”
