Venetian Morning
Venetian Morning
Italy
An early, cold morning, the city still fast asleep, the gondolas still moored from last night. These are the precious, tranquil moments, alone with the city and the cold light. 
The Green Sea
The Green Sea

Weather was shaky, rays of sunlight driven away by stormy rain clouds. A play on the big stage, at the warm Florida coast.

Cold City Morning
Cold City Morning

An early, cold February morning in New York. In for a day full of meetings, but not willing to trade the sunrise for an hour more sleep...
Schrammsteine
Schrammsteine
Germany

Five days of rain, mist and grey skies in an autumnal Swiss Saxony. A photographic nightmare. And then, one afternoon, the sun comes out, into a brief misty sunset. Now time is of essence.

A rural residence of a minor dynasty of noblemen, who tried to create a representative residence in a forgotten part of the realm. For centuries neglected by it's owners today it's a master example of pure pre-baroque design.

Pergamon-Museum
Pergamon-Museum
Germany - 22.01.2012
The Pergamon Museum is the star of Berlin's Museum Island. The Pergamon houses original-sized, reconstructed monumental buildings excavated in Babylon, Uruk, Assur, Miletus, Priene and Egypt by German archeologists in the late 19th century and transported to Berlin. The museum is named after the Great Altar of Pergamon, a massive stone podium about one hundred feet long and thirty-five feet high, that has been rebuilt in the main hall and can be entered by the visitors. Until September 2012 the museum also hosts the fantastic Asisi panorama of Pergamon, and the hall of statues has been (finally!) dramatically refurbished too - it's definitively worth a visit...

A very special, very dear place - Lego City, the place where all the little Legomen and women live and where the Lego bricks are manufactured. I'd wish I could live there :-)
