Black Forest Girl

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 Marathon Runners

London marathon runners dress up in fancy dresses. This photo shows Bob, the smurf. This is the London marathon map.

I Hate My Girlfriend

Obvoiusly I love my girl friend – just look at mi amor this wonderful chocolatina. But there are several other options: My parents hate my girlfriend I hate my ex girlfriend My friends hate my girlfriend My girlfriend hates my friends My girlfriend hates me My friend has a girlfriend and he hates that I …

British Summer Weather

British summer weather and temperatures can cause severe depressions, that much is clear. My advice here is to bring the weather with you, which I did in this picture (it worked). I tried also to adopt the latest Hipstamatic kind of picture style.

Through The Eyes Of Children

See the world through the eyes of a child. I wish I could. But then I think looking through the eyes of a child is probably not a twee, cosy or easy experience. It can be unsettling, uncomfortable, edgy…

Romanian Window Cleaners

This picture was taken in Barcelona, I had lots of furious comments in regards to their ethnic origin. They are Romani and are an ethnic group living mostly in Europe, who trace their origins to medieval India. The Romani are widely dispersed, with their largest concentrated populations in Europe, especially the Roma of Central and Eastern Europe and Anatolia. Deported …

The Mad Monarchist

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 …

The Queen’s Pub

After the royal wedding the queen went straight to the pub. For de-stressing purposes – god save her.

The Welsh People

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)

Kissing A Horse

This is a picture of a girl kissing a horse. I like that the kiss is making the horse smile. Taken in Martin’s Haven, Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK. [hr] There’s also this poem: Kissing a Horse [quote]Of the two spoiled, barn-sour geldings we owned that year, it was Red— skittish and prone to explode even at fourteen years—who’d …

The Gringo Trail

I was travelling the gringo trail in Central America in the 90ies a couple of times. It’s convenient since distances are short, it’s cheap and easy enough to travel (not always though). This picture was taken in Nicaragua. It basically starts in Mexico, then Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, El Salvador and Panama. Then it’s …

Pretty Cool Guy

I think he is a pretty cool guy, eh? Picture taken at an East London music festival.

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.

Brazilian Alcoholism

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 …

Clockwork Orange Meaning

A guy standing in front of the Trellick Tower in London Kensington looking like Alex: the movie’s anti-hero from Stanley Kubrick‘s Clockwork Orange. The title is a metaphor for “…an organic entity, full of juice and sweetness and agreeable odour, being turned into an automaton. It’s about exploring the relationship between ethics/morality and free will. A lack of free …

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.

Children Crazy

The children’s journey toward self-discovery and the awakening of the Divine within

Chocolatina

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

This is Rock Music

Taken in Victoria Park, London – very good and energetic band, good fun to watch. In London there are everyday 100 high-quality concerts. Amazing. Was just watching Jeff Beck – he was and still is playing rock music in a nicely distinct style, the bass player girl adds some good contrast too (makes me laugh though):

Slightly Damned At Speaker’s Corner

A mad preacher thinking and expressing we’re all more or less damned. Photo taken 2008 at London’s Speakers Corner in Hyde Park London. A Speakers’ Corner is an area where open-air public speaking, debate and discussion are allowed. The original and most noted is in the north-east corner of Hyde Park in London, England. Speakers there …

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 …

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).

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.

Something More Than Life

A black model shot in Hyde Park London. There are no lyrics or chords to describe that these lips are something more than life. Don’t fear them!

Nude Bike Ride

It is intimidating to face thousands of naked bike riders but it’s a good and strong reminder of the vulnerability cyclists face in car dominated London. And if you’re a streaker it’s a great opportunity to get your paler bits out in central London and not be arrested for it. For photographers obviously a great …

Mud Face

This photo was taken at the Volcán El Totumo near Cartagena, Colombia. Being enveloped by the thick, cool mud felt odd at first, yet strangely comforting. It was more difficult to move around than anticipated, and you don’t sink easily as the mud is very thick and being pushed up from out of the earth, so …

Get Insane

This guy drove us insane by following us in Delhi India for one hour. Talking to him did not really help – all we got was insane staring to an unbearable extent. We escaped by jumping into a taxi. Can you feel the crazy eyes?

London Dungeon Man

A terrifying man, however it’s only make-up. The London Dungeons are one of the London attractions.

Opening The Third Eye

This guy is clearly practicising third eye meditation in his car. He’s observing in that moment chakras and auras. It’s time for awakening you third eye now.

Muay Thai Boxing Bankok

Taken in Bangkok. To watch the fight is much fun – lots of shouting and betting. Muay Thai is referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs” or the “Science Of Eight Limbs” because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight “points of contact”, as opposed to “two points” …

Love Brazil

A Brazilian selling instant tattoos at Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro. We had a great time backpacking in Brazil, its one of the best countries for travelling. All you need to have is time because it’s huge… I love Brazil…

Naked Munich Pictures

We Germans love to be naked. We’ll strip off just about anywhere and any time. For most, though, it’s not exhibitionism. Sometimes it looks like a Christmas tree.

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.

Pre-Digital Camera

When I came home from 3 months in Brazil in 2003 with 40 film rolls I bought my first digital DSLr Camera. The Canon EOS 300D with at that time unbelievable 6.3 MP – and a significant milestone in digital cameras, as it was the first digital SLR offered under $1000. However non digital photos are also …

Itaipu Dam Picture

A nasty picture of myself diguised in Brazil’s largest hydroelectric power station – Itaipu Dam. Number two in terms of total capacity but number one when it comes to max annual electricity production  in the world. It’s gigantic.
