Another weekend – another photo exhibition (have you read my post from the SteveMcCurry exhibition?). This time we were a bit more south. The Significant Other and I spent the weekend in (our former hometown) Genoa on the Ligurian coast to visit a dear friend. And, as things go, there was another exhibition in town – “L’Italia di Magnum”. Another opportunity to see great photography and do some street shooting inside the exhibition.Continue reading “Another weekend – another photo exhibition”
Back on the streets. Not only are The Significant Other and I on our way to Greece for the first proper vacation in almost two years. While spending an evening in Bologna in Italy on our way to catch the ferry in Ancona, this also was my return to street photography since the whole Covid thing started. And you know what? Not surprisingly I found out how much I had missed roaming the streets with a camera in hand and capture scenes of life as it happened around me…Continue reading “Back on the streets”
A few days ago, The Significant Other and I headed down to Genoa to spend a weekend in La Suberba, as the ancient Italian Marine Republic at the Ligurian coast is affectionately called. And a good opportunity for some candid street photography…Continue reading “A weekend in La Superba”
The novel coronavirus induced total lockdown has caused a standstill on the Streets of Nuremberg. While technically I could take my camera out on the streets (walks of single persons are still permitted), morally I’d feel kind of guilty. And on top of it, with the totally deserted streets, what’s the point of doing street photography? And with travel all but impossible in the days of closed borders and cancelled flights, this is a good point in time to revisit some older travel photographs, and allow us to travel the world virtually via our blogs. This first post takes you to the city of Bergamo in Northern Italy, today the epicenter of the horrific corona pandemic in Italy.Continue reading “Italy explored – Bergamo”
Rome Sweet Rome ! I haven’t been to this magic city in what seems like ages. Inspired by a movie that The Significant Other and I did watch last night, I decided to revisit some old photographs from our last visit back in 2013 and put the RAW files (that I always keep) through some modern day post-processing.Continue reading “Rome Sweet Rome”
The second day of Christmas. Downtime. All is calm, all is bright. In Pajamas all day. Watching TV documentaries. Couch sleeping (a lot). Playing with some photographs taken during the year, like this night shot from Boccadasse, Genoa. Just imagining, how the little port would look without light pollution.
If you think about picking up a camera yourself and are still looking for inspirations what to photography, check out my free Learning Center.
I hope your are all having a fantastic Christmas as well.
Besides my photography and my love for travel, I am a big opera aficionado. There is a perfect place to combine my three passions….Verona. A place where you sit on the warm stone steps of a two thousand years old roman amphitheater on a placid Italian summer night. Listening to the magic music of one of the world’s most popular operas. Aida under the Stars…Continue reading “Aida under the Stars”
This is how it looks when you photograph the Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta in the moment a wave washes over your camera and the lens is half submerged.Continue reading “Liquid Houses”
Feet up! Relaxation is the main theme of our vacation on the Ligurian coast. We head down to the beach almost daily. Great food and drinks, reading and swimming is the main program. And an occasional grip to the camera if a beach shot jumps into my view.Continue reading “Feet Up”
Sure enough we spend ample time at the beach, during our Ligurian vacation. And this is always a good opportunity to put my rugged Olympus TG-4 camera to action. Because who says you can shoot street photography only on terra firma? Street? Beach! Sea!Continue reading “Street? Beach!”
Yesterday we explored 24 kilometers (15miles) of the beautiful Ligurian Flower Riviera by bike, the cycling lane following the railway line of the former coastal railroad from Genoa to Ventimiglia.Continue reading “Liguria Explored – Coastal Cycling”
The first road trip of our Ligurian vacation went up Valle Argentina to the mountain village of Montalto Ligure, situated like a fortress on a hill at the eastern edge of the valley with interesting, winding, medieval alleys. Join me for a photographic tour of Montalto.Continue reading “Liguria Explored – Mountain Village”
