The swans of Hamburg

The swans of Hamburg

Besides the seagulls, there is another kind of bird which is very common for the city of Hamburg: the swans. They populate the Lake Alster the whole year through, till it gets cold in november. Then the “Schwanenvater” (“Swans-daddy”… which is actually a person paid...

There is something about seagulls

I guess seagulls are for Hamburg, with its port, the same as pigeons are for other cities. Some people call them “air rats”, some people just like them beeing part of the typical scene of a port city. I belong to the latter. While walking along the harbor you will always have them as...

Continuing the #blackandwhitechallenge, this is my 4rth entry (the ones before are here: 1, 2 and 3): an image of the Alster Lake in Hamburg during the summer. The Alster Lake is one of the favourite places for locals and visitors in Hamburg to hangout, relax and have a good time.

Pic of the week – 2014/42: Prague

One of the cities I really like most is the capital of the Czech Republic, Prague! I´ve visited Prague more than once (I think 7 or 8 times) and every time I get off the train at Praha-Holešovice, it´s like travelling back in time. I also had the chance to be part of the last New Years

#blackandwhitechallenge: Day 1

Perhaps you have heard about the #blackandwhitechallenge, which is running on Google+. The idea is to post 1 picture a day (5 days long) within the simple rules of the challenge, in this case they just has to be B/W. So, I got nominated by my fellow photographer friend Michael “Jay”...

Sunset at the Port of Hamburg – Video

Last week I was walking around the Port of Hamburg during a really fantastic sunset (pictures of this are coming soon!) and I realized, that I do almost nothing that has to do with video with my equipment. Having the DSLR and the smartphone with me, I had actually two great devices for making...
