People change. PLACES AS WELL.

I’m sure everyone of you knows that feeling. Those places from our childhood we used to visit once or perhaps more often and of which we have a very clear picture in our minds. An image so clear as if it had been yesterday. Maybe there was that incredibly beautiful spot by the river one ...

Photo series: Riding an Old-timer through Havana

Havana, a city where time has stood still for the last 60 years and which has been left to itself.

Shortly before the storm

  When it’s hot outside, I can hardly resist the temptation of renouncing my camera, of escaping the bustling city and riding my bike to the riverside to go for a swim. Relaxing summer afternoons with friends are the best thing… So it’s even better to feel the cool air of an approaching storm after ...

A nice walk on mild summer evenings

  A summer we haven’t had for a long time. The perfect weather allows us to bathe longer in the sun and refresh ourselves by jumping into the cool water. With very hot temperatures outside in particular we also look forward to the cooler hours in the evening. Mild summer evenings let us go for ...
