Inspiration is the motor for improvement

Saturday, July 14th, 2018

Did I ever tell the story, … why I love a spe­cial kind of city sky­line images?

It was some time ago, when I was look­ing for some­thing wide, some­thing quite wide, some­thing quite large and some­thing … quite old.
I found a Zeiss Ikon Ercona, a 6x9 tech­nic­al won­der from the early fifties — last cen­tury. This gem uses … Read the rest

Australian Adventure — I’m done!

Sunday, June 10th, 2018

These were the last images I pos­ted in my Aus­trali­an Adven­ture series, star­ted long ago. They show two old clas­sic Volk­swa­gen in Fitzroy/Melbourne. It was our last day in Mel­bourne and Aus­tralia and so gives a good link to our next day flight back to Ger­many.

The com­plete series can be found here on my flickr page. The whole … Read the rest

Australian Adventure — Murals

Friday, April 20th, 2018

This time — and I prom­ise this trip is near­ing its end — we strolled through the streets of Mel­bourne, hunt­ing for the fam­ous mur­als.

Mel­bourne is full of street art and in some areas you can’t miss ’em — like here around Hosier Lane.

In case you’d like to com­ment, it’s appre­ci­ated … and maybe, you want to check … Read the rest

Australian Adventure — Melbourne Skyline

Saturday, February 17th, 2018

Our trip to the world’s end is near­ing it’s fin­ish­ing line.
This time I have a couple of long time expos­ure night shots from Melbourne’s south­bank over the Yarra River which show the full beauty of this fant­ast­ic sky­line. As you know my dilemma, boths worlds look stun­ning — black&white and col­oured.

Enjoy 😉

Australian Adventure — Classic Cars

Saturday, January 27th, 2018

Nice inter­me­di­ate … in Mel­bourne, when vis­it­ing the Queen Vic­tor­ia Mar­ket, we found a Clas­sic Car Show with loads of beau­ti­ful cars. As men­tioned before, I find col­our and black&white very pleas­ing.

This was a Cadillac Fleet­wood Series 75 Sedan (1960).

Here the phant­ast­ic col­ours …

… and here come the beau­ti­ful black&white.

Enjoy 😉

Australian Adventure IV — Melbourne

Friday, January 12th, 2018

Com­ing to the final part of our tip to tne world’s end, we now entered Mel­bourne, a fas­cin­at­ing big city — Australia’s second largest. with nearly 10 times the size of Ber­lin (10000 km²:1000 km²) it hast around the same num­ber of people liv­ing there — approx. 4.5 mio.

This city is so col­our­ful and full of struc­tures and forms, … Read the rest

Australian Adventure III

Thursday, October 5th, 2017

After com­plet­ing the second part of my Aus­trali­an Adven­ture, which more focused on the towns on our path, I’m now com­ing back to nature in the third part of the series.

This time it’s about Tas­mania — a lovely island.

As explained in one of the images, it reminds my on my home­land Bav­aria — in size and in nature … Read the rest

Australian Adventure II

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

Hav­ing now nearly reached the middle of the photo review about my Aus­trali­an Adven­ture, I noticed that I have pos­ted a lot of cool views of West­ern Aus­tralia.

How­ever what is miss­ing — at least IMHO — is a bit more about those small towns we passed by on our trip. I just men­tioned them in my com­ments, but how … Read the rest
