a view on the alps from the laguna veneta. it was quite impressive.


escalationthis is a detail of the sculpture tiger&turtle – magic mountain by heike mutter and ulrich genth in duisburg. i liked the backdrop a lot.

it seems quite idyllic where i grew up… i never noticed.



the landschaps-zonneproject by piet slegers, 1979

i pushed the lights a bit so the metal triangle in the foreground gets completely white and looks a bit like been cut-out of the picture.

i’d do it…

i’m not really sure what i like in this picture but i definitely like it. it’s probably the reduced palette with that exposed spot of red and all these nice varieties of green. it could of course be the content. the traffic sign looks a little bit lost and pointless in all the landscape (it wasn’t of course in reality). probably it’s a combination of both. that’s how it is supposed to work, right?

that’s another view onto the westhafen in berlin again. i’d guess these are fuel tanks but i don’t really know.



shot on a country road in the niederrhein area last weekend. i liked the almost typographic shape of the tree and then i discovered its bark and refrained from doing this picture in black and white.

windmills on my mind

windmills on my mindthis picture should of course not be confused with the great song with quite a similar name the windmills of your mind (linked here in the incredible dusty springfield version)

landscape with a few trees

landscape with a few treeslandscapes are not usually my favourite subjects but this view got my attention… shot with the lumix 20mm in december. i think it would do no harm to click the picture to see it a little bigger.

i say goodbye and i say hello

“goodbye 2012” and “hello 2013” that is…
happy new year!

not the shadow of a doubt


but of an oak… seen just recently when the snow was gone again… (i’m sure it will return soon)

shot on the island of texel in august. i really dig the artificiality (but maybe this is only my lame excuse for being too late to get the actual bales of straw ;))

if you are familiar with the graphical language of verbo-visual narratives (i.e. comics) you will have seen it already. otherwise you shouldn’t bother with the thrown ;)

taken on the dutch island of texel with the m.zuiko 40-150mm zoom.

texel barns

there are quite a few of these special barns (schapenboeten) to be found on the dutch island of texel, where i happen to have spent the last week.

all of these barns are build with the more aerodynamic side facing the southwest because that’s where the wind blows from usually. of course there are also more regular shaped barns if you are not that – uhm – inclined.

i guess there will be some follow-ups to this post… i’ve still got some nice barns left ;)
