The Calendar Files … 2018 … Melbourne Murals

Well, just to recap … now we’ve reached 2018 and we are in Mel­bourne! This time I made two cal­en­dars. One is a col­lec­tion of mur­als from Mel­bourne shot by my daugh­ter. Mel­bourne, to me the most impress­ive city in Aus­tralia — besides Perth —  and a city world fam­ous for its cre­at­ive mood, its…… Con­tin­ue read­ing The Cal­en­dar Files … 2018 … Mel­bourne Murals

The Calendar Files … 2017 … Australia

Well, just to recap … we’ve now reached 2017 and we are in Aus­tralia this time! A once in a life­time trip around South-West­­ern Aus­tralia, Tas­mania and … finally Mel­bourne. We care­fully selec­ted our route to avoid the over­crowded east­ern part of this con­tin­ent. A full series of this trip can be seen on my…… Con­tin­ue read­ing The Cal­en­dar Files … 2017 … Australia

Inspiration is the motor for improvement

Did I ever tell the story, … why I love a spe­cial kind of city sky­line images? It was some time ago, when I was look­ing for some­thing wide, some­thing quite wide, some­thing quite large and some­thing … quite old. I found a Zeiss Ikon Ercona, a 6x9 tech­nic­al won­der from the early fifties -…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Inspir­a­tion is the motor for improvement

Australian Adventure — I’m done!

These were the last images I pos­ted in my Aus­trali­an Adven­ture series, star­ted long ago. They show two old clas­sic Volk­swa­gen in Fitzroy/Melbourne. It was our last day in Mel­bourne and Aus­tralia and so gives a good link to our next day flight back to Ger­many. The com­plete series can be found here on my…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Aus­trali­an Adven­ture — I’m done!

Australian Adventure — Murals

This time — and I prom­ise this trip is near­ing its end — we strolled through the streets of Mel­bourne, hunt­ing for the fam­ous mur­als. Mel­bourne is full of street art and in some areas you can­’t miss ‘em — like here around Hosier Lane. In case you’d like to com­ment, it’s appre­ci­ated … and…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Aus­trali­an Adven­ture — Murals

Australian Adventure — Melbourne Skyline

Our trip to the world’s end is near­ing it’s fin­ish­ing line. This time I have a couple of long time expos­ure night shots from Melbourne’s south­bank over the Yarra River which show the full beauty of this fant­ast­ic sky­line. As you know my dilemma, boths worlds look stun­ning — black&white and col­oured. # Enjoy 😉…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Aus­trali­an Adven­ture — Mel­bourne Skyline

Australian Adventure — Classic Cars

Nice inter­me­di­ate … in Mel­bourne, when vis­it­ing the Queen Vic­tor­ia Mar­ket, we found a Clas­sic Car Show with loads of beau­ti­ful cars. As men­tioned before, I find col­our and black&white very pleas­ing. This was a Cadillac Fleet­wood Series 75 Sedan (1960). Here the phant­ast­ic col­ours … … and here come the beau­ti­ful black&white. Enjoy 😉…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Aus­trali­an Adven­ture — Clas­sic Cars

Australian Adventure IV — Melbourne

Com­ing to the final part of our tip to tne world’s end, we now entered Mel­bourne, a fas­cin­at­ing big city — Australia’s second largest. with nearly 10 times the size of Ber­lin (10000 km²:1000 km²) it hast around the same num­ber of people liv­ing there — approx. 4.5 mio. This city is so col­our­ful and…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Aus­trali­an Adven­ture IV — Melbourne

Australian Adventure III

After com­plet­ing the second part of my Aus­trali­an Adven­ture, which more focused on the towns on our path, I’m now com­ing back to nature in the third part of the series. This time it’s about Tas­mania — a lovely island. As explained in one of the images, it reminds my on my home­land Bav­aria -…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Aus­trali­an Adven­ture III

Australian Adventure II

Hav­ing now nearly reached the middle of the photo review about my Aus­trali­an Adven­ture, I noticed that I have pos­ted a lot of cool views of West­ern Aus­tralia. How­ever what is miss­ing — at least IMHO — is a bit more about those small towns we passed by on our trip. I just men­tioned them…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Aus­trali­an Adven­ture II
