Got a new tripod. 

My new tripod arrived yesterday.  And I have to say: I love it.  It's a Manfrotto Befree Aluminum in black and red. And it's way sturdier then my previous cheepo tripod.

30 Second Experiments

New photography series: 30 second experiments.  For this series I take 30 second exposures and try to edit some kind of meaning into them.  Let's always try something new.

But I never… Continue reading Tips for traveling: Sweden.

OTTO 2016

Yesterday OTTO happened once again.  OTTO is an annual Oldtimer meeting in Osterode am Harz, Germany.  This year was the 16th edition. And cars aging 20 years or older were allowed to take part in the happening.  But before I wandered through lines of classic cars, I did my duty as a citizen and voted… Continue reading OTTO 2016


And also, never let anything like this happen ever again.  Humanity lost to many good people on that day. Some where firefighters, some cops, some just going about their daily work routine.  Ladder 3 was one of many FDNY units that responded in order to make a difference. To be that tiny drop that could… Continue reading NEVER FORGET
