WPC: Summer Lovin‘

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.

Travelling #4 (Part III): San Francisco architecturals

Today’s focus is fixed to San Fran’s architecture, as you probably assumed by reading the headline. Not much more to say. Have a look.

Travelling #4: San Francisco panorama no. 6

We’re going vertical today. Fire escape staircases on turn-of-the-century buildings are probably the most normal thing in the world if you are a US citizen but they are not if you are a Euro-guy like me. Reason is: we don’t have it. At least not on older buildings. Even though I’ve seen it many times„Travelling #4: San Francisco panorama no. 6“ weiterlesen

Travelling #4 (Part II): San Francisco Chinatown

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, a„Travelling #4 (Part II): San Francisco Chinatown“ weiterlesen

Travelling #4 (Part I): San Francisco first impressions

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 city„Travelling #4 (Part I): San Francisco first impressions“ weiterlesen

Photo of the day #87

The famous Ruinas (de la Catedral) de San Pablo in Macao. Probably one of the most coveted photographic scenes there. Even though I only stayed for one day in Macao back then in 1997 I had a feeling that the general ambiance was totally different to Hong Kong. Whilst Hong Kong to me was Asian„Photo of the day #87“ weiterlesen

Photo of the day #85

Another one from my 1997 trip to Hong Kong and Macao. That day we paid a visit to Lantau island with its famous ancient fishing village Tai O. I remember having some kind of crab or crawfish for lunch which looked like a giant woodlouse. Very special but yet very good.

Photo of the day #84

Oh dear, another photo of the day forfeited yesterday… I’m actually plundering my archives so here comes some really old stuff. Today’s capture dates back to 1997 when I visited Hong Kong and Macao. Hong Kong already went back to China about half a year earlier and Macao was soon to follow. The only camera„Photo of the day #84“ weiterlesen

Day at the Seaside

I’m really tired of winter coming back and back again everytime when I think that finally springtime will begin. It is so depressing. So, what can I do against that? Maybe posting a pack of shots I took last summer during a trip to the touristic town of Cuxhaven in Northern Germany. You can’t go„Day at the Seaside“ weiterlesen
