Berlin subway, upside down

The photos taken by the Leica minilux come out upside down when I scan them. But sometimes I like the results, like in these 2 cases.

Poznań Part I: The Food

By the end of April, I had the pleasure to visit Poznań in Poland. And the one thing that I remember best is the food. Really, Poznań has some crazily good food to offer.

Stadtrad Hamburg

I love these things. Everywhere around Hamburg you can just take one, ride it for up to 30 minutes and return it somewhere else, absolutely free. So that’s how I get to work during the warm days, while it’s not raining.

Barcelona: Night Shots

I had the duty to travel to Barcelona for business reasons. This meant working during the day, photography during the night. No wonder I came home with much more night than day shots.
