Life in Japan – Herbert Geddes

Once again I’d like to take you on a trip back into the past. This time we’re going to Japan around 1910. Herbert Geddes was the manager of a Canadian import-export company and between 1908 and 1918 he was in Yokohama on a business trip to Japan. On photographic glass slides he captured the impressions ...

Momo the Border Collie

Hey Momo! 😊 Do you remember Wally, Waldo, Walter or whatever the skinny guy with the red-and-white striped bobble hat was called,  where you are coming from? Wally was originally simply the main character in series of children’s’ books by the British author Martin Handford but by now he reached worldwide fame. The books about ...

Transylvania

Hey guys, Today I want to take you on a somewhat different photo walk. As much as I love digital photography, every now and then I also feel like leaving my heavy Canon 5D Mark III at home and exploring the world with an analogue camera. Such cameras are light, handy and the feeling of ...

My “photographic dream” of Africa

Red soil, endless wilderness, breathtaking sunsets, amazing animals, freedom and adventures. All this and much more I can relate to my dream of Africa. As far as I remember I’ve always dreamed of exploring Africa. Of seeing the animals you usually watch in a zoo or – even more tragically – in a circus show ...

Photo series: Riding an Old-timer through Havana

Havana, a city where time has stood still for the last 60 years and which has been left to itself. Or at least it seems like that! 😉 A mix of colored colonial-style houses, la Habana, the old city filled with little abandoned lanes, stucco-ornamented buildings on every side and impressive street art at every ...

Vacation in the mountains due to heat wave

Finally it’s here – the summer we’ve been yearning for a long time. The days are endless, the motivation and energies refreshed and the desire for ice-cold drinks at the water is huge. But after a few days of full urban heat which, as every year, spreads between the houses, I nicely accepted some vacation ...

Get on the train, please! –Michael Wolf and Tokyo’s rush hour

Everyone living in a big city can at least picture how unbearable the situation of people captured in the photos taken by Michael Wolf must be like. In the summer months, in particular, public transport isn’t a place to feel very good. In cities with an extremely high population density it won’t ever be. As ...

Hey guys, today I’d like to take you along and show you a photo series. This format is new on Tamara’s and my blog. With our photo series, we’d like to take you on small trips and show you our viewpoint of things. Unlike our photo walks, we don’t want to describe a lot but ...

Nature Photo Blog

32 nature photographers for 365 days a year. That’s the concept of the Nature Photo Blog and I’m most likely one of its biggest fans. It’s almost become a ritual by now: Every morning when I start my laptop or switch on my smartphone, the first thing I do is to take a look at ...

A night walk with the SIGMA 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM | Art

As some of you may already know, I belong to the persons who experience wanderlust like very ordinary emotional chaos. At almost every hour at day and at night I’d love to hop on the next plane and explore new worlds. The destination itself isn’t even important for me – the main thing is getting ...
