Blue City
Blue City
United States
The blue hour in the city that never sleeps. Not far away and so near, away from the hustle and bustle of it's busy streets. This is the place...

View over the bay, a sea of golden yellow, shortly before sunset. We have been warned, being out on the streets after dark in Salvador, Brazil.
Schrammsteine
Schrammsteine
Germany

Five days of rain, mist and grey skies in an autumnal Swiss Saxony. A photographic nightmare. And then, one afternoon, the sun comes out, into a brief misty sunset. Now time is of essence.

The Green Sea
The Green Sea
United States

Weather was shaky, rays of sunlight driven away by stormy rain clouds. A play on the big stage, at the warm Florida coast.

Sea of Yellow
Sea of Yellow
Germany
Just a field full of yellow canola flowers, soon to be scythed and fed to farm animals. But in this moment, in their bloom, they are beautiful. 
Pergamon-Museum
Pergamon-Museum
Germany - 22.01.2012
The Pergamon Museum is the star of Berlin's Museum Island. The Pergamon houses original-sized, reconstructed monumental buildings excavated in Babylon, Uruk, Assur, Miletus, Priene and Egypt by German archeologists in the late 19th century and transported to Berlin. The museum is named after the Great Altar of Pergamon, a massive stone podium about one hundred feet long and thirty-five feet high, that has been rebuilt in the main hall and can be entered by the visitors. Until September 2012 the museum also hosts the fantastic Asisi panorama of Pergamon, and the hall of statues has been (finally!) dramatically refurbished too - it's definitively worth a visit...
Mondsee
Mondsee
Germany - 02.02.2012
Mondsee, Austria. A freezing early morning with minus 10 degrees, snapping with sharp teeth at all body parts not wrapped in layers of clothes.  
Weikersheim
Weikersheim
Germany - 19.10.2010

A rural residence of a minor dynasty of noblemen, who tried to create a representative residence in a forgotten part of the realm. For centuries neglected by it's owners today it's a master example of pure pre-baroque design.

Venice
Venice
Italy - 24.04.2009
Arriving in Venice from the train station was like entering a palace through the servants entrance and that one should always travel across the ocean to the most improbable of cities.
Steyr
Steyr
Austria - 04.10.2010
Water has moved this city from time immemorial. Route of transport for trade in iron, power source for the craftsmen who brought riches and prosperity to the city. An important city in medieval times it has preserved it's romantic center into modern times.
New York
New York
United States - 12.02.2008
New York, that is the rendezvous on the platform of the Empire State, the white chiffon dress over the underground grates, is the heat of the West Side and Central Park in winter.
