Sea of Yellow
Sea of Yellow
Germany
Just a field full of yellow canola flowers, soon to be scythed and fed to farm animals. But in this moment, in their bloom, they are beautiful. 
Blue City
Blue City
United States
The blue hour in the city that never sleeps. Not far away and so near, away from the hustle and bustle of it's busy streets. This is the place...
The Green Sea
The Green Sea
United States

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

Flow of Light
Flow of Light
United States
Underground, in the canyon washed out by millions of years. The sunlight paints patterns on the walls, and the rest of the world seems very far away.
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. 
Mondsee
Mondsee
Germany - 02.02.2012
Mondsee, Austria. A freezing early morning with minus 10 degrees, snapping with sharp teeth at all body parts not wrapped in layers of clothes.  
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...
Berlin
Berlin
Germany - 09.11.2008
A regular city gate, one out of 18 surrounding the city, turned into a main national symbol of Berlin and Germany. Somehow it was always in the center of events, saw revolutions, demonstrations, war, separation and reunion, it wore the red flag, saw presidents and parties.
Venice
Venice
Italy - 24.04.2009
Arriving in Venice from the train station was like entering a palace through the servants entrance and that one should always travel across the ocean to the most improbable of cities.
New York
New York
United States - 12.02.2008
New York, that is the rendezvous on the platform of the Empire State, the white chiffon dress over the underground grates, is the heat of the West Side and Central Park in winter.
Weikersheim
Weikersheim
Germany - 19.10.2010

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.
