One year with the Fuji X-E1

One year with the Fuji X-E1

It’s nearly a year ago I bougt the Fuji X-E1. I took about 11.000 pho­tos with it in the last year, so it’s time for a resumee how it is work­ing. Before I mostly took pho­tos with a Canon 50D with a couple of lenses, namely a Sigma 10–20, a Canon 17−55÷2.8, a 50/1.8 and […]

Os Indios da Meia Praia

Os Indios da Meia Praia

Aldeia da Meia-Praia Ali mesmo ao pé de Lagos Vou fazer-te uma can­tiga Da mel­hor que sei e faço Meia Praia, a beach in Por­tugal, next to Lagos, sur­roun­ded by Golf places, Lux­ury apart­ments and fancy beach res­taur­ants. That is one side. There is also another side. Dur­ing the 1950s Por­tugal was one of the poorest countries […]

Location Scouting...

Location Scouting…

I would like to do an out­door model shoot­ing some time in spring but I have no idea where nor do I have a model. To resolve the first I went around to do some loc­a­tion scout­ing. Maybe this site is some­thing…: the train depot of the museum rail­way in Behringersmühle where old wag­ons are […]

Frankenballon 2014

This week­end I had the pleas­ure to pho­to­graph a bal­loon race, the Franken­bal­lon Cup 2014 from the start­ing grounds and from inside a bal­loon (thanks to the Aero­nautic Team). It was a very nice sunday, the weather was pretty good and it’s always a nice sight to have 23 bal­loons drift­ing across the sky.

Golden Circle

Golden Circle

When you are in Ice­land the golden circle is one of the things you need to do. The golden circle is a one day round trip where you see the most fam­ous things in Ice­land, Thingv­el­lir (we skipped this as we were already there when diving in Sil­fra), Gey­sir, Gull­foss and some other water­falls. As […]

Snæffelsjokull
Snæffelsjokull

Finally some more Pho­tos from yes­teryears visit to Ice­land. We took a rental car and went around on the pen­in­sula where the fam­ous vul­cano Snæf­fels­jok­ull is loc­ated. This is the place, where the Jour­ney to the cen­ter of the earth from Jules Vernes star­ted. On the way over the high­lands we picked up two very […]

The Streets of Bordeaux
The Streets of Bordeaux

At the begin­ning of octo­ber I have been on a busi­ness trip to Bor­deaux. Even though I barely had the chance to see any­thing but work, I could see that Bor­deaux is a nice city and has some great res­taur­ants. We went to one — La Bras­serie Bor­delaise — , which had very good food […]

Lillachtal
LillachtalLillachtal

The Lil­lach is a small creek passing through Weißen­ohe in the Dis­trict of Forch­heim. Close to the source there are some sinter ter­races, ter­race like basins formed by cal­ci­fic­a­tions. These steps were cre­ated dur­ing the last ice age, some 10000 years ago and still grow each year by 1–3 mm. The val­ley is a nat­ural reserve and […]

A magazine style Table of Content with LaTeX
A magazine style Table of Content with LaTeX

The default LaTeX Style is a no-nonsense, sci­entific paper like style, which is not really appeal­ing for magazine like con­tent or for lit­er­at­ure type­set­ting. One thing I espe­cially find bor­ing is the table of con­tent, which nor­mally just lists the con­tent. If you want to have an abstract of what you will read or a […]
