london traffic problems

London Traffic is a nightmare. I wish more people would cycle – the problem is London is rather huge. Better sleep over it.

Tooting Life

I lived for some time in Tooting and had a good time there. This picture shows my house mate at that time. This is to say about Tooting London: Where is Tooting in London: it’s in the South-West on the Northern Line one stop after Balham (Tooting Bec and the Tooting Broadway) Postcode for Tooting: SW 16 …

A poor miller was offered wealth by the devil if the miller gave him what stood behind the …

The London Bridge Experience

Amongst the interesting places in London the London Bridge is good to watch commuters. Especially bankers – every morning there’s an army of suspicous people walking from London Bidge Station towards the city. A true spectacle – a sad rat race. It’s also a good starting point for places to visit near London. This photo …

Heat Indicator

I like my stylish heat indicator – its for the bbq temperature. Taken in the backyard of my house in London.

The tate modern museum is easily one of the best modern art museums in the world. The exciting turbine hall installations or the various tate modern exhibitions together with the fantastic location make me come there very often.

Watching The English

Fun fair at Clapham Common, London. I am British myself but don’t know much about English rules or English behaviour.

Tacita Dean Tate Modern

FILM is an 11-minute silent 35mm film projected onto a gigantic white monolith standing 13 metres tall at the end of a darkened Turbine Hall. It is the first work in The Unilever Series devoted to the moving image, and celebrates the masterful techniques of analogue film-making as opposed to digital.

Wind Tree

A tree torn and formed by the ever blowing at Seven Sisters in UK. Loving these wind blown trees.

Is Elephant And Castle Safe

If you’re looking for places to live in London Elephant & Castle should not be on your list. Or if you’re local you’d only say the elephant. Or you like the wired things then go to the elephant & castle pub. Anyway it seems like a “failed utopia” – council houses just never work for nobody. …

London Buskers

Busking London has a long traditon and is rather charming. And these guys are really good! Often seen at London tube stations this one was taken at Notting Hill.

The Cheapest Water For Miles Around

Showing the fountain in front of the Southbank Centre in London, UK. The fountain is called “Appearing Rooms” and is a work of Jeppe Hein. The idea is that jets of water shoot into the air, creating ‘rooms’ that disappear as quickly as they emerge, inviting visitors of all ages to try their luck at …

Travelling Young

Life was fun in my 20ies. Half a year studying at university and half a year travelling through the world. The picture was taken in 1993.


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 Game of Chess is not merely an idle amusement; several very valuable qualities of the mind, useful in the course of human life, are to be acquired and strengthened by it, so as to become habits ready on all occasions; for life is a kind of Chess, in which we have often points to …

St Pauls Cathedral London

St. Paul’s Cathedral London stood on its place since 604AD. However it was rebuild after its predecessor was destroyed in the Great Fire of London. Quite an iconic part of the London skyline it is an Anglican cathedral dedicated to Paul the Apostle. Important services held at St Paul’s include the funerals of Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington …

Where Is San Salvador

It might sound funny but you don’t want to know. San Salvador was considered the most dangerous city in the world in 1992 – I got rather violently mugged in El Salvador in 2003 which might makes me biased. However these are some tips from Wiki travel: Don’t walk on streets that look abandoned and …

Viva Mexico Cabrones

There’s no translation for viva mexico cabrones – so I better leave it. I love the Mexicans anyways – this one was taken in Oaxaca. There’s even a radish festival in Oaxaca I heard.

Ashes To Ashes

Another picture from the Magnificent Seven – the seven large cemeteries in London. Today the Nunhead Cemetery in East London Borough of Southwark. They say it’s the least famous and celebrated of them. They were all established in the 19th century to alleviate overcrowding in existing parish burial grounds and are now pretty much left to neglected management. Which …

The concept has been revived since the 1990s by chains such as Starbucks, Coffee Republic, Costa Coffee, Caffè Nero and Prêt as places for professional workers to meet and eat out or simply to buy beverages and snack foods on their way to …

The Year Of The Last Trumpet

With great sadness and heaviness of heart I have to announce that I can’t really play the trumpet – but I can blow into it and make funny noises.

Ok, this pic was taken by approx. 100 million people. So mine should not be missing here. Still it shows what London architecture is all about – old next to new.

Menu For Today

The Information Age Has Ended

Life in the information age was nice but it’s already over. But what comes after that? Connected Age? What about Creative Age? Or the Green Age? Let me know. The building in the background is the Battersea Power Station.

Ai Weiwei In The Tate Modern Turbine Hall

There are 100 million sunflower seeds laid out in the turbine hall in London’s Tate Modern Turbine Hall. It took two and a half year to make all of the porcelain sunflower seeds. There were 1,600 Chinese people working on it.

Desert landscaping between Munich and Starnberg. I love these simple snow landscapes (especially in surreal winter) Inspired by Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto (who did the U2 album cover ‘No Line on the Horizon‘).

Free Running

Free Running! These guys are extreme – they choose a parkour to do all their tricks and moves. This one is from London Southbank.

Uncle Ho

Ho Chi Minh died on the morning of 2 September 1969, at his home in Hanoi at age 79 from heart failure. In Vietnam today, he is regarded by the Communist government with god-like status in a nationwide personality cult, even though the government has abandoned most of his economic policies since the mid-1980s. He is still …

bombón + linda + confite + dulce + golosina = Chocolatina Colombiana!

Autumn London

The second of the London autumn pictures. More focus on the intensity of the fog and light this time.

Saatchi Gallery Kings Road

The Saatchi Gallery is a cool place, very modern art and very well kept. In 2010 it was announced that the gallery would be given to the British public, becoming the Museum of Contemporary Art for London. Saatchi’s goal is to show contemporary work that would otherwise not be seen in big London institutions such as Tate …

London in Autumn

Softly the trees begin to sing their farewell song on a nice foggy London night. This is London’s Tooting Common. A great Park / Common. The main difference seems to be Parks close at night while Commons don’t have fences or gates and are accessible 24/7. Tooting Bec Common includes a number of formal avenues of trees — the …

London Nightmare

A nightmare is a dream that can cause a strong negative emotional response from the sleeper, typically fear and/or horror. The dream may contain situations of danger, discomfort, psychological or physical terror. Sufferers usually awaken in a state of distress and may be unable to return to sleep for a prolonged period of time. The …

Fresh Colombian Breeze

This is my lovely girl-friend, a Colombian living in London. I was reading some stuff about her folks in London: The estimated number of people of Colombian ancestry is between 90,000 and 160,000. Colombians constitute the UK’s second largest Latin American group (after the Brazilians), and on a global scale the community ranks as the world’s fourth largest …

Tomb Raider London Underworld

I could not see what’s in there beforehand – this is a real tomb. I squeezed my camera and flash through a small crack and hit the release button. I was expecting some underworld things to see but nothing.

Royal Victoria Patriotic Building

Another gem of interesting buildings you can discover in London. Funded by Prince Albert’s Royal Patriotic Fund, the Royal Victoria Patriotic Building was intended for the ‘Education and Training of three hundred Orphan Daughters of Soldiers, Seamen and Marines who perished in the Russian War, and for those who hereafter may require like succour’. Today …

First Encounter of Canon 5d Mark II

Let’s face it – this camera is a beast.  And if you’ve never experienced the cold unforgiving eye staring at you, the reaction is comprehensible. Seems painful but it is character forming (if you want to become a super model). Lincolnshire 2010.

Arianna in Creta

Taken in one the magnificent seven London cemeteries: West Norwood Cemetery (one flash).

Classic Spiral Staircase

Shot was taken in the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. I studied there in the 90ies. The term “spiral” is used incorrectly for a staircase from a mathematical viewpoint, as a mathematical spiral lies in a single plane and moves towards or away from a central point. A spiral staircase by the mathematical definition therefore …

BMW Building Overcast

Great shape of the building and HDR for Sky and metal look. The Building is the BMW headquarters in Munich, Germany.

Pablo Escobar Dead

“Plata o Plomo” Escobar had a way of dealing with his enemies: he called it “plata o plomo”, literally, silver or lead. Usually, if a politician, judge or policeman got in his way, he would first attempt to bribe them, and if that didn’t work, he would order them killed, occasionally including their family in …

Attractions in Marrakesh

Went on a short holiday to Marrakesh and realised the best attraction was right in front of me in the cheap hotel room we were staying.

What an angelic wondrous moment when I saw this innocent angel coming down from heaven to earth at Trafalgar Square in London. I immediately heard loud angel music and simply felt love.

Balloon Girl Khao San Road Bangkok

Been there many time in my 20ties in the 90ties as a backpacker. This place changed quite a bit towards mass tourism and entertainment. E.g. you can find a Burger King there now etc.

Irish Landscapes

Ireland has some great landscape designs – seems it’s god’s walled garden. Taken near Dublin.

Tightrope Walker Falls

Tightrope walking normally means walking along a rope, sometimes also at a great height. Here there was no great height or the Niagara falls involved (no death neither just a little accident). Taken in Mexico City at the Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Mexican People: Man In Train

I met this Frijolero in Northern Mexico – remember he’s been really nice and it was a pleasure to hear him talking in his Mexican accent. I love Mexican people.

Ugly Building

I’ve seen many buildings and architecture around the world but this one tops them all in terms of ugliness. Is it a Nazi building? No, it’s in Mexico City.
