A day in London

August 14th, 2013  |  by  |  published in Feature, Photography

A day in London Due to my work, I benefit from international one day business trips occasionally. Yesterday, I had a meeting in London, so I hopped on a plane from Hamburg to London in the morning and back again in the evening. On my way to my meeting and back to the airport I managed to get away with some images. My meeting place was close to Victoria station where the company I work for has their London offi...

London Street | Analog – Part Two

June 10th, 2013  |  by  |  published in Feature, Stories

London Street | Analog - Part Two In part one of this blog post, I shared London's Underground and trains as well as some quieter street scenes away from the main hustle and bustle of the busy areas. I did turn my attention to a wide area of locations while in London, including a pub. Pubs are not typically among the locations I seek images in. Depending on the kind of location and local culture, a pub borders on being a private d...

June 9th, 2013  |  by  |  published in Feature, Stories

London Street | Analog - Part One There are a handful of cities on this planet that stand out from the all the other cities in terms of relevance, vibrancy, culture, flair and maybe even something intangible as mojo. It's not easy to define the definite top ten of metropolises with the top contenders in order to each other, but it's pretty clear that cities such as New York City, Tokyo, Paris and London rank very high in this top ...

Fotopedia China now available in iTunes Fotopedia apps have evolved into my favorite iOS apps lately. They feature brilliant photography, are constantly updated with new content and most of them are free. While I do not own an iPad yet, I enjoy the beautiful photography featured on my tiny iPhone. On an iPad with a retina display, the images are so much more powerful. The latest Fotopedia app features images from China. Right now, it...

A Spanish Portfolio

July 1st, 2012  |  by  |  published in Feature, Stories

A Spanish Portfolio Many times had I been to Spain before I traveled Andalusia for the first time, last year in October. I had visited the Costa Brava a couple of times, I had seen Barcelona, I had been to Madrid. I drove my first car across the Pyrenees from Barcelona to San Sebastian and back south via Zaragoza. I have walked the Camino de Santiago from Pamplona all the way to Cape Finisterre. Yet, when we visited ...

Alain De Botton – The Art of Travel

Alain De Botton - The Art of Travel When someone says travel guide, most people will think of Lonely Planet, National Geographic, or other well known travel guides. Alain de Botton's "The Art of Travel" is an utterly different approach to structure and present a guide for travelers. Summarized in a single sentence, The Art of Travel is to travel writing what Sophie's World is to philosophy. Rather than ...

Xishuangbanna in pictures

Xishuangbanna in pictures Many believe the Chinese province offering the most diverse China experience is Yunnan. In fact, I share this belief as I've had the chance to travel Yunnan twice over the last years. One Yunnan region especially exotic is Xishuangbanna, located all the way in the south of Yunnan, bordered by Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam. Xishuangbanna is home to the ethnic minority of the Dai. In fact, Xishuangbanna...

Traveling with Film

November 9th, 2010  |  by  |  published in Feature, Hints, Photography

Traveling with Film As the photography world has gone mostly digital, there remain some veterans who continue to expose on film. Although their numbers are becoming smaller year by year, some younger generation photographers – like me – are rediscovering the old art of exposing on film as the necessary equipment has never been cheaper on Ebay and the likes. Luckily, companies like Kodak are now offering films bet...
