An espresso, sun and colorful houses

Easter, according to a recent newspaper report, is supposed to be the best season to visit Venice and its little nearby islands. “Venice… First time here?” somebody asked me. No. For another time. But this time only beautiful Venezia wasn’t enough – after the gray winter I was longing for as many colors as possible. ...

Easter in China

It was time for me again to leave home for exploring unknown, faraway places. As you already know me, my camera and me are used to simply hop on the next train, bus or plane in order to travel to other countries. This time, through mere coincidence than big considerations, we travelled to China. (I ...

Alex Bernasconi shows us the world of penguins

For most people Antarctica remains a mystery. Only few of us have been there already or could possibly imagine traveling there one day. Because rationally speaking Antarctica definitely isn’t a cozy place for human-beings. Barren, cold and inhospitable. It certainly wasn’t on Mother Nature’s mind to make human-beings settle on the South Pole and so ...

Marrakech

Hey guys, Today’s photo walk also takes us to the red city or the Pearl of the South – better known as Marrakech. I don’t get tired of repeating how spellbound I was by this city. I don’t know if you know this feeling but some places simply are different. They have their charm and ...

Jardin Majorelle – the Blue Garden

  Hey guys, today I’d like to show you some more impressions of my days in Marrakech. After the Djemaa al Fna, where you’re about to get 1000 different impressions ranging from snake charmers to mobile shops and unique odors, and the souqs, a showcase of interesting handcrafts, there’s of course a lot more to ...

“Photography is a strange phenomenon. In spite of the use of that technical instrument, the camera, no two photographers, even if they were at the same place at the same time, come back with the same pictures. The personal vision is usually there from the beginning; result of a special chemistry of background and feelings, ...

Marrakech with the SIGMA 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM | Art lens

This year I already felt like getting on the plane in January to escape the daily routine for a couple of days. I wanted to go to a city where I wouldn’t have to rush from sight to sight but where I can simply enjoy the atmosphere. I wanted to stroll through the narrow lanes ...

New Year’s Eve in Venice

New Year’s Eve… Almost every year it’s the same. You keep discussing which party or which dinner you may join with your friends. This year I didn’t want to take part in that game and went to Venice spontaneously with two friends. The prices of the Italian “copertos” were – typical of Venice – adjusted ...

Cats of Istanbul

For me, there has to be a city trip at least once in a year! This year it was time for Istanbul, but before I start to tell you what I liked the most about the city, how great the food tastes there, about all the great impressions and the amazing photo motifs I came ...

“Restlicht” by Bernd Nicolaisen

For most of us, the thought of spending time in a place, so extremely cold and inhospitable as an ice cave is not a very pleasant one. Nevertheless, there is no denying it, eternal ice and those parts of the world where you can find it, are incredible fascinating and stunning to look at. Photos ...
