You’ve got it. The Olympic Stadium once more. The last one for this week I promise. Have a closer look if you like. In this landscape of steel and plastic nature reclaimed a small spot for itself.

Das Stadion und der umliegende Olympiapark gehören nachwievor zu den populärsten…

Premiere today. The first bilingual post here. And it will become the new standard on this blog. From now on, all posts are going to be written in German and English language, except when there’s very little words that do not need translation.

Such a lovely couple

Captured two years ago in the Olympiapark (Olympic Park) on top of the Olympic Hill. The man-made hill towers for 60 meters and provides a brilliant view over the city on clear days.

Priest in a hurry

Recently I had a little time-out and used it to stroll through the streets of downtown Munich when I saw this priest rushing from left to right and back again over the Odeonsplatz. I wondered what he was doing until I saw the film team in a distance. Actually the guy was an actor in the role of a priest. He had to hurry…
