quick fall post

I haven’t been able to post much lately because my new jobs at the Süddeutsche Zeitung and at tm studios have been keeping me pretty busy. I’ll put up some of the stuff I’ve been shooting for the paper soon. But before September turns into October, I would like to put up a quick post with pictures from a hike we took three weeks ago. It was a quick 5-hour loop along the beautiful Mangfall river in upper Bavaria. We chanced upon it on our way to the mountains when we got stuck in traffic and decided to look for a hike nearby. It’s absolutely gorgeous and I can’t wait to go back there and explore the area some more.

romania, part two: calin’s wedding

I’ve promised these for a long time, finally here they are: The pictures of Calin’s and Domnita’s wedding. It’s a wide edit, but it was also an eventful day. Thanks again to both of you, Calin and Domnita! This was an amazing experience and I’m sure we’ll remember it for a looong time…

romania, part one

I realized that I still owe some pictures from our trip to Romania – I apologize for the delay, but my Lightroom catalog got corrupted with all the edits that I had done on my takes there, and I was simply too lazy over the past two weeks to redo it all.

I decided to split the Romania pictures up in two sets – one with general shots from our time there, especially with our friends. The second one, which I will post shortly, is going to be exclusively of Calin and Domnita’s wedding and the preparations.

It was a great experience to visit Romania, and it was not at all what I had expected. I was impressed with the beauty of the country and the rich German heritage in large parts of Transylvania, and I can’t wait to go back there. At this point, I’d like to express our gratitude again to Calin and his family for everything, and also to our dear friends Catalin Abagiu and Vivian Esparza for their companionship, as well as Catalin’s wonderful mom for her caring hospitality.

One of the things that really stuck with me is how colorful the houses are in Transylvania. Passing through a typical village on our drive from Medias to Sighisoara with Catalin and Vivian. Tuesday, July 10, 2012.

I really love the landscape in Transylvania. It reminds me of my home, only slighlty more hilly. Between Targu Mures and Sighisoara, Thursday, July 12, 2012.

Caius jumps on our way to the public pool in Targu Mures. It was our last evening in Romania. I can't wait to go back there and explore more of this intriguing country.

let the games begin

When we were in Verona, we went to watch the opera Carmen in the Arena di Verona. Built in the year 30 AD, the arena has hosted everything from gladiator fights to medieval executions and more civilized gigs such as operas in later times. It was an absolutely unreal feeling to sit on the very marble that 70 generations before us have polished with their butts.

Spectators leave the Arena di Verona during intermission of the premiere show of the opera Carmen during the 90th Arena di Verona Opera Festival, Saturday, June 30, 2012. If you look closely, you can find Rita and Beth in there, too...
