Rain On Leaves

These rain kissed leaves are in my back garden. The picture looks kind of fresh, doesn’t it? Two external flashes applied.

Ai Weiwei So Sorry

Ai Weiwei – creator of Tate Modern’s “sunflower seeds” installation – has been placed under house arrest because he planned a huge party to mark the demolition of his newly built Shanghai studio.

Near Los Angeles

Infinite Los Angeles California while I was visiting Yahoo head quarter back in 2005. We stopped at the highway to take this shot. Some minor tweaks in HDR.

PigeonParadise

Lots of people think there’s a pigeon problem. Getting rid of pigeons? That’s the way you do it. Unfortunately the pigeons spear themselves while trying to land – resulting in lots of only one-legged crippled pigeons. Not sure why the pigeons in london try to land on these friendly constructions? Can’t they spot the spikes? …

The Sunken

A true treasure sunken in Brighton. The West Pier.

Romanian Window Cleaners

This picture was taken in Barcelona, I had lots of furious comments in regards to their ethnic origin.

The Romani are widely dispersed, with their largest concentrated populations in Europe, especially the Roma of Central and Eastern Europe and Anatolia. Deported …

In Munich, winters are long, cold and full of snow.

Seems monarchism does not die out – the royal wedding was the best example. On the pic you see a somewhat mad monarchist and advocate of the principles of British monarchy. The British system is a constitutional monarchy (or limited monarchy) where Elizabeth II acts as head of state within the parameters of a constitution (they don’t have …
