I don’t encourage anyone to drink alcohol. If you do, fine. If you don’t, fine by me, too.
However, there are some evenings where a bottle of beer fits the mood. It might be the company of a fine young lady who is too shy for the camera, too. It might be both.
The thing I adore about fish-eye-lenses: You can get a bit closer, even towards bigger objects. This ferris wheel is about 47 metres high.

Hard to believe, Lamborghini is part of the Volkswagen car manufacturing group, isn’t it?
The third and – maybe – final image of the Holi series. Shot during the Holi festival of colours in Stuttgart, Germany
I used one of europe’s biggest parking garage placed above the Autobahn south of Stuttgart, Germany for this.
I had the pleasure to receive an invitation for a Fight event in Stuttgart. A couple of Martial art schools and agents were setting up a series of fight events called Defenders Fighting Championship. Each event is planned to be full of fights of different classes and technicques. Amongst them Thaiboxing, Grappling and the famous Mixed Martial Arts.
The first event was last night. The first fight event ever to shoot for me. Not quite easy with the ring and the speed of the fighters, but it was great fun for me. Tell me what you think!
p.s. And the best way to start a fight? Well, according to comedian Ryan Stiles: Hey guys, wanna fight?’ Not the best pun, I admit.

Didn’t have a post about my favourite metal band of Stuttgart for quite some time, right?
Well, not only I have been busy composing the Christmas Countdown. The band was spending their time composing and working on their songs, too. A few days after christmas we met at Der Soundmann record studio. For them to finish drum recording for their album. For me to record the process.
Two and a half days it took them to get the drum tracks for their ten songs right. Two and a half days for me to shoot both pictures and video. See some of the result yourself and tell me what you think!
When I started the Christmas countdown series, I had one post in mind pretty much immediately. The Weeping Angel. Only the image was not yet done. Not a big problem, though since the site is close to my home. During an afternoon walk through Stuttgart’s Pragfriedhof – the third largest cemetery of Stuttgart – the image was taken. Open for nearly 140 years, it contains the only crematorium in Stuttgart.
Not that I am a big fan of cemeteries, crypts and that kind, but it was fascinating to what lengths families went to honor their lost ones.
In memory of all those who will not celebrate Christmas with us.
In Erinnerung an Alle, ohne die wir Weihnachten feiern.
