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...
Desert Colors
Desert Colors
United Arab Emirates
The desert, the void, the nothing. Destruction of everything living, and yet full of beauty and color, just stones and sand and the sky. 
Venetian Morning
Venetian Morning
Italy
An early, cold morning, the city still fast asleep, the gondolas still moored from last night. These are the precious, tranquil moments, alone with the city and the cold light. 
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. 
Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro
Brazil
View from the feet of Cristo Redentor, over the bay to Sugar Loaf Mountain. A panorama that never stops to reveal more details.
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.  
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...
Berlin
Berlin
Germany - 09.11.2008
A regular city gate, one out of 18 surrounding the city, turned into a main national symbol of Berlin and Germany. Somehow it was always in the center of events, saw revolutions, demonstrations, war, separation and reunion, it wore the red flag, saw presidents and parties.
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.
Schloss Brühl
Schloss Brühl
Germany - 13.02.2011
A monument of overwhelming beauty and pomp, built on debt and rarely used by it's owner; a last rococo statement before time overturned the old order of things...   
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.
