A black forrest holiday must include always to have a chat with a black forrest girl. This one was taken in Munich. The Black Forest (German: Schwarzwald, pronounced [ˈʃvaʁt͡svald]) is a wooded mountain range in Baden-Württemberg, southwestern Germany. It is bordered by the Rhine valley to the west and south. The highest peak is the [...]

London Paddington, where you can take trains leaving London.
London marathon runners dress up in fancy dresses. This photo shows Bob, the smurf. This is the London marathon map.
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 [...]
Part of the borough of Wandsworth Tooting Broadway is full diversity and people you can take pictures ever and ever again. Am missing it! There are not fancy shops or pubs there, its more the real London – without being to much of East London.
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 [...]
The biggest carnival in Colombia takes place in Barranquilla and it’s supposed to be the second biggest of the world after Rio de Janeiro. This picture was taken in Taganga near Santa Marta.
London is full of love
Loneliness thoughts? In Munich.
Snapping away in the dead of the night.
There are not so many Bavarian beer houses in London - although German beer is available in most of the pubs. Checking a London restaurant guide you might find maybe 3-4 proper German restaurants in London (the rest is rubbish bratwurst fake, mind you there’s a new one in Soho where I had Bratwurst Nachos the other day). This picture [...]
The London Notting Hill Carnival is always a huge beauty show. Don’t miss it! Taken in 2010.
A day in the Imperial War Museum London in Southwark. By the way the most boring day in history was April 11, 1954.
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 [...]
A guy I came across in Mumbai, he did not become my friend however.
A young contender at the World Naked Bike Ride London 2011 (WNBR). Taken at Hyde Park.
Another picture of the World Naked Bike Ride 2011. Two men felt so well, free and alive (or other undisclosed reasons) being naked that they started dancing and shaking a ‘leg’
Clearly Tesco fans! Taken at the royal wedding festivities – William and Kate – London Hyde Park 2011.
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.
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 [...]
There are no welsh people physical characteristics but spiritual ones. They are really nice people – go to Wales and enjoy the culture! (never mind the language)
Stayed with this family in their hut + hammocks for some days in Brazil near Manaus. The guy was more or less drunk the whole time. His mother seems to haven given up on him? The reason of his alcoholism was boredom I guess but then again what do I know about people living in the tropical rain-forest [...]
These people come out of the mud volcano of Totumo. You can experience this mud bath photo near Cartagena, Colombia. Benefits of a mud bath are: soft skin and plenty of fun.
This is not the “my beautiful laundrette” but it’s full of people pondering about their lives (or sleeping it off)
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 [...]
Barber in Vietnam.
This one was taken at the Notting Hill Carnival 2010. I like the accidentally great lighting of this guy. I don’t know the causes of tunnel vision but I can see symptoms of tunnel vision at this guy. Or so…
A commercial photographer london not being famous and when he does event photography and is more a people photographer: – he looks like him.
The joker and the thief at the Djemaa el Fna in Marrakesh’s (Morocco) medina quarter (old city). At times as a tourist it can get a bit juicy there. Ideal if you need a new leather bag – don’t talk to the snake charmers.
Made from sugar cane on a rather small scale near San Gil, Colombia.
The naked meet up in London Hyde Park and cycle through London then. Basically the naked protesters mingle with the exhibitionists and perverts (not to confuse with photographers).
Is this guy alright? Is he looking for travel buddies? I caught him at London Bridge.
We all know how to lay around and waste time – but can we relax and enjoy the nothingness? Doing nothing can be even hard work sometimes. But I believe we all need to apply more methods to relax like these stress-reducing techniques shown on the picture. So? Do nothing!
An unforgettable night with this Indonesian band in Jakarta. They were the exact opposite to rock’n roll but good.
Cao Đài (道高台) is a syncretistic, monotheistic religion, officially established Vietnam, in 1926. Roughly 3 millions are following. Cao Dai says there are 36 levels of heaven and 72 planets harboring intelligent life, with number one being the closest to heaven and 72 nearest to Hell. Earth is number 68. It is said that even the lowest citizen on planet [...]
Amazingly poor work environment and working conditions in this sweatshop in India. I wonder what’s the average weekly pay? Accidentally came across workshop in New Dehli’s old city in 2006.
Taken in the depths of the Amazon region around Manaus.
Forgot where this was but it was nice there. I found the composition and colours of this photo together with the two two indigenous woman interesting. (north Mexico somewhere).
In the plane to the Angel Falls in Venezuela in 2003.
I think this street photograph shows a cimarron people. The Cimarrons or Cimarrones in Panama, were enslaved Africans who had escaped from their Spanish masters and lived together as outlaws. The term Cimarron means “runaway slave” in Spanish. But I am not sure – picture was taken in Panama City in 2003.
Some federal Mexican police officers dealing with tourists in Mexico D.F. in 2003. Quite polite as far I remember.
This one was taken at the fruit market in Manaus, Brazil
Was nice just to sit there with the locals.
