Actually the photos of this post lay about 1 year behind. I took them in December 2015/January 2016. It was a nice start into 2016. I finally fullfilled a dream and bought a Leica M6.
On my first walk with my new camera in Düsseldorf. Actually the Leica feels more like a working tool than a usual camera. If you ever tried to drive a nail into a wall - with a stone, and then someone gave you a real good hammer, you know what i'm talking about.
Old fashioned Apollo Theater in Düsseldorf with old fashioned car. Hats never run out of fashion!
Family visit. International facial expression for "we're out of chocolate!"
Going to Madrid in December. Yes the sun still exists. Gotta take a photo to proof that.
A long long time ago
Spanish chatting men, i think years ago i took a very similar shot. Must be a common scene.
Undercover go walkies
I believe I can fly...
Finally meeting my lovely flatmates back in Alicante. I'm glad to see that really nothing has changend in 7 years (still laughing about me making faces)!
On our flight to Carcassone/France. 1 year before, I had to explain Antoine the correct chess rules. He made insane efforts. I think I lost that day. Must have been the flight radiation or something...
Finally at the castle of Carcassonne
Going to the toilet. The last time I saw this, I was about 10 years old. And I was in Syria.
Antoine looking for a good photo scene.
In the church
The street of our small and cosy house where we spent new years eve.
Kids playing around the corner: "Wait, where is little Timmy?" Oh...
In the house preparing the dinner aka The Butcher at work.
Lili getting ready...
...to have a good night.
At that day we were all fascinated by a 1€ piece of plastic.
Fabién checking the radio signal hopefully. Stop dreaming of Wifi.
Driving to the mountains
Finally flying back home, with Obi Wan.
First time travelling to Japan. Totally underrated as a travel destination. If you really want to feel like an alien in a different world, don't go to New York - go to Japan! I guess Sting hasn't been there before, when he wrote his song.
2 things they love in Japan: Bicyles and big letters on huge buildings.
Famous crossing in Shibuya/Tokyo, before and after lights turn green
Shibuya fashion girl thinking about....?
Security officer - a multi dimensional job
LEE LEE or Lily?
"What did you bring for lunch today my dear husband?" Fish - like every god damn day honey!
Planking for the purists
The enemy is not the lantern in front of you - it's the air around us.
Before going to Japan i thought people here in Europe are really addicted to smartphones - obviously we are true noobs in that discipline.
Don't waste your lifetime - read mangas on the stairs
Checking the internet when the traffic lights are going to switch to green
View from the "World trade center"
In the very very crowded tube of Tokyo.
...and that's not even in rush hour.
Poor Lady in the back, she forgot her smartphone at home.
1 day later, same time in Kyoto...
In a cat café (didn't make it to the owl café, the goat café, the snake café nor the hedgehog café).
Cat waiting for next costumers
Another shrine to find enlightment
At least kids in Japan are just the same as here
...except of school uniforms
People standing in lines. Everywhere.
Hey babe, wanna take a ride on my bike?
School boys hanging around - skipping school? No, propably not, we are in Japan dude.
I remember i was really jealous of their umbrellas on that day
Cool painter (former Navi-SEAL?)
It's not what you may think
The new sheriff in town
I don't know what scares me more, the A-Bomb dome in the back or ignorant tourists in the front of that "tourist attraction"
The gambler ("the tower must fall!")
The only homeless i've seen there so far, but that one was a pro
Club of the anonymus sushi addicts
Captain on the brige!
Yes, sometimes it rains in the rainy season...
Lili and her new colourful friends
I can only image what kind of costumer is inside that cabin
Found the last guy in Japan without a cell phone
Watching is exhausting
Upcoming working class
Ancient high heels
Top german export products: Beer and Bayern Munich
Finally taking the train to the airport back to Germany. Of course, standing in line.
