Just a short post today with a photo I shot of the Munich underground for a story about public transport a while back:

happy new year!!!

Happy New Year everyone out there! To all my family, friends, near ones and dear ones: I wish you all the best for 2013 and that all your wishes, hopes and dreams come true. I hope you had a wonderful time last night and were able to celebrate with those you care about. Beth and I took it really easy and spent a quiet and relaxing evening at home. At 10:30 we went to the Friedensengel in Munich, where I had to shoot the fireworks and the New Years celebration for the Süddeutsche. At first we were the only ones there along with maybe 20 other people, but little by little the place filled up until there were several thousand people waiting for the bell to toll midnight. They unleashed the most incredible fireworks I have ever seen, and at times the scencery reminded me more of a war zone rather than downtown Munich. It was gigantic. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed making them!

christmas is in the air

Here’s another shot from a recent assignment. I had to get a feature of one of the Christmas markets that are all over Munich now. The paper ended up running a different picture, but I really love the moment here. There was this little Santa Claus on a bike that kept riding back and forth over a wire above people’s heads. When the little girls came, they were so amazed by it, they just stood there with their mouths open, holding each other’s hand, and watched it for what seemed to be an eternity. The moment kind of makes me jealous to be a child again, when something as simple as Santa on a bike can make your day…

elba, again

I realize that I still owe the pictures from Calin’s wedding, and so much more, and that I haven’t blogged in almost a month. It’s been a crazy summer and I barely had time to get the stuff done that I needed to do. My paperwork is piling up on my desk and my dirty laundry underneath it (my desk, I mean). The house is a mess, and I don’t even remember when I answered my last email. The good news is, we did have time last weekend for an amazing barbecue of slowly smoked ribs and tenderloin by the one and only Raymond J. Suda that blew my family and me away and once and for all redefined what we know as barbecue. Also, we managed to squeeze in a short trip to our beloved Island of Elba with Beth’s parents. Here are some shots from my cell phone:
