Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn. (Gore Vidal)
Introduction

I'm here for two reasons: to gather interesting ideas and connect to people with those and for sure for Photography. Photography is in general the only stuff I post to the public.

I'm a flexible guy interested in a lot of topics and themes and believe it is important to be open and flexible when listening to others. I still have some convictions I won't give up easily. 

"Allow yourself to yield, and
you can stay centered.
Allow yourself to bend, and
you will stay straight.
Allow yourself to be empty, and
you'll get filled up.
Allow yourself to be exhausted, and
you'll be renewed.

Having little, you can receive much.
Having much, you'll just become confused."
(Lao Tzu)

If you take offense by my art/pictures/opinions/comments I point to the  following line:

'And if perchance I have offended
think but this and all is mended
We'd as well be ten minutes back in time
For all the chance you'd change your mind.'
(Tim Minchin)

In Photography I'd love to one day create a work that fits the words below:

'Anybody can look at a pretty girl and see a pretty girl. An artist can look at a pretty girl and see the old woman she will become. A better artist can look at an old woman and see the pretty girl that she used to be. But a great artist — a master — can look at an old woman, portray her exactly as she is… and force the viewer to see the pretty girl she used to be….'
"Stranger In A Strange Land", Robert Heinlein

Pondering and reflecting
I caught these Ladies reflecting their work experiences during a break when shooting around the ADAC building in Munich. The contrasting colors of the windows made for a great reflective background here.

beauty and decay

a small hidden fotographers treasure spot I found during my last little walk .. I'm not totally happy how this shot turned out so maybe I have to visit this again. What do you say? Any ideas?

Light flowing down the river
While I was sitting at the river last Sunday morning the rising sun was lighting the stones and the water always changing. Even during an single shot it was not possible to predict the outcome as 50 seconds meant a lot of change in light. Still I was able to get some nice ones I will share with you these days. Have a great weekend folks!

Light on the river

I am still enjoying the light on the stones when working on my shots!

Enjoying the freshness of the flowing water.
Those horses obviously did - the horseman in the back was soaked after all that splashing.
I had a great morning with my local fellow photographers along the Mangfall river last weekend.
