Hampton Court Picture

Hampton Court Palace is a royal palace in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, Greater London, it lies in a curve of the Thames. It was originally built for Cardinal Wolsey, a favourite of King Henry VIII, circa 1514. The place was built into a palace which was so beautiful that the king himself grew jealous. Of course, it’s dangerous to make the king […]

After The Battle Of Hastings

I took this picture – basically 945 years after the battle of Hastings. If you want to know what what happened in 1066 click here.

Brockwell Park London

The image shows Arianna V. in Brockwell Park, London. The sky is underexposed and Arianna is lit by a flash.

Ancient Ceremonial Mask

Ancient Ceremonial Mask

I bought this wooden mask in Peru 2001 – its rather ugly but it’s ancient. One can’t throw away these things, one would feel guilty.

Can Goldfish Live In A Bowl

This poor goldfish was found in Colombia in a shop where I used to cover my beer supply. Goldfish can live in a bowl but not long. In the best case, goldfish living in a bowl that is regularly cleaned will live for a couple of years.  The worst scenario is the fish will be […]

Stormbringer

The picture was taken at Playa Blanca, an isolated, near perfect cliche Caribbean beach which is at the Caribbean coast of Colombia, off Cartagena de Indias. There’s no electricity or decent accommodation (no hotel but hammocks basically) and the mosquito eat you alive. However the weather is just great and the temperature of the water is constantly 27C. Make sure to bring a good book.

Autumn London

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

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 […]

after the thunder

After The Thunder

Thunderstorms: Romans thought them to be battles waged by Jupiter, who hurled lightning bolts forged by Vulcan. Christian doctrine accepted the ideas of Aristotle’s original work, called Meteorologica, that winds were caused by exhalations from the Earth and that fierce storms were the work of God. Ok, but the scenery was really impressive the time the picture was taken at Lake Starnberg […]

Magic Mushrooms at Richmond Park

Where to find magic mushrooms? Ask the mushroom man! Found these magic mushrooms in Richmond Park, London – some tweaking was needed to make them glow. A real magic mushrooms picture looks like that:

victorain lamp posts london

Victorian Lamp Post London Tooting

These victorian lamp posts are actually quite decorative I find. Mostly made of cast iron they come in so many different shapes. To preserve these victorian lamp posts throughout the city must be quite an effort. The picture shows a lamp post close the Tooting Broadway tube station in Tooting, London. Processed in HDR.

Under A Rising Sun

Woke up at 5am in Italy and had a swim in the Mediterranean Sea. Then a nice Italian Espresso Maciato.

Braking the law

Making And Breaking The Law

Black model photo shot in East London. Title is misleading – no breaking (violation) of laws involved.

Albert Bridge Across The Thames

Connecting Chelsea to Battersea + 4,000 bulbs illuminate it at night. Except for Tower Bridge, Albert Bridge is the only Thames road bridge in central London never to have been replaced.

Moody Black Model

Studio shot taken in Shoreditch London. Like the lighting and the moody black model.

Dan Flavin Green Room

Dan Flavin Green Room

Dan Flavin – the art of fluorescent light! The artist uses limitation of his art moderne of materials to commercially available fluorescent tubing inserting it into the world of high art. The resulting body of work at once possesses a straightforward simplicity and a deep sophistication.
