as usual a little retrospective will conclude the year here on .documenting.the.obvious. thanks a lot to all visitors new and especially all the regular ones! without you it would be only half (at most) the fun :-)
have a good 2019!
because of the huge success (*cough*) of my “best of the year spotify playlist” last year, i’ll continue with this new tradition as if nothing happened. i know spotify might not be the ideal medium for this but i think at the moment it’s the best one available. but i’m open for suggestions of course!
this blog will have resumed normal operations most probably by the end of next week.
that’s that for hong kong… pictures taken november/december 2017
as promised… the journey continues… some impressions from some hong kong markets, winter 2017
but only on my hard drive – all shots: hong kong, 2017, one year ago… more to come (and some already here)
from the upper deck of a tram in hong kong, 2017
sankt petersburg, russia, 2018
conjugating loneliness, antwerpen, 2017
all the traffic signs with people on it looked refreshingly old fashioned in antwerpen, 2017
as the tradition of this blog has it here are some of my favourite pictures from 2017.
this time they come from a variety of places like zürich, paris, den haag, cologne, texel, munich, venice, kassel, duisburg and last and definitely not least hong kong. but most of them are of course from good old berlin. i hope you like what you see! (cont’d below)
a happy new year to all of you friendly followers, following friends and likable likers. it was a pleasure having you!
to a good 2018!
ps: i pondered adding a new twist to this retrospective and i thought i’d share some of my favourite songs that i’ve discovered during the last year with you. i reckoned a spotify playlist might reach at least some of the readers here. it should even work without a spotify account but then you have to endure some advertising between the songs.

duisburg, december 2015
‘(wieder) auf dem damm (sein)’: literally ‘(to be) on the dam (again))’ is a german expression that means to be back on one’s feet again – usually after some period of illness
and apparently it’s the name of a train station in duisburg, too. i shot this picture from within the tramcar whose reflection is visible on the orange wall.

wandering in berlin, friedrichshain. august, 2015
a window from st. malo, france. i took the liberty of disappearing from the reflection.
a statue, a scooter and a shower… all in amsterdam, august 2014
