Sunday, December 2nd, 2018

Walking through town, where it’s always worth making a picture … or two. Same in the old World’s Fair area, where the EXPO ’92 was hosted and where so many nice spots were left behind.

Contrary to Lisbon (EXPO ’98) in Seville no one seems to be proud of this area and what has been built. No one recommended a … Read the rest

Real Alcazar is one of the miracles of Spanish history, built for king Peter of Castile between 1350 and 1369.  It is the oldest royal palace in Europe still in use.

After this long tour, we had some time to stroll around in town.

Bullfighting is still a cultural highlight in this part of spain – whether you like it or not. The Placa de Toros is worth visiting nevertheless – even outside the season.

Sevilla, when it’s still cold at home – Part 2

Wednesday, October 10th, 2018

Calle Sierpes is a wonderful shopping lane in the old center of Sevilla. I found tons of beautiful subjects (better objects) which give an impression of the ancient history of this beautiful and amazing town.

Friday, October 5th, 2018

Visiting this beautiful old town in Al Andalus for the second time, this time we choose to come in February to escape the summer heat with its approx. 40 °C. End of February, it was sunny in Seville and we had cozy 18 degrees. Guess what camera was on board … I only say ‘workhorse’.

Starting around 23:15 CET by setting … Read the rest

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 6×9 technical wonder from the early fifties – last century. This gem uses … Read the rest

El norte de España

In spring 2016 I travelled to Northern Spain, visiting the Basque Country, Cantabria, Aragon and Castile and Leon. Flying to Bilbao and heading to our first location in San Sebastian, we made a stopover in Zumaia. The little town is nice … but more famous is its rock formation – The Flysch. The landscape is stunning and so we stayed … Read the rest

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.
