I was outside with a friend to explore some more areas of my area where I live in. There was this great little spot with snow and plants (?? I don’t know the exact term of this, my bad!). I hope you like them and feel free to comment on it!
And yes, I like some weird photos, where you have to stand in something or you use a different composition 🙂
Last year in december I was at another place worth visiting in NRW or rather in the small area I lived in. There is the Magic Mountain with its‘ rollercoaster stairs and the Triangle in Bottrop and then there is this thing in Herten. I was rather underwhelmed by it, but nonetheless it was a nice walk in the park. 🙂
I hope you like the photos and don’t hesitate to like or comment!
Ich war ein paar Tage in Paris und da habe ich natürlich ein paar Fotos gemacht. Es gibt was vom Louvre bis hin zum Eiffelturm und allgemeine Fotos 🙂
Schwierig in diesen Reisefotografien ist stets eine Linse dabei zu haben, die auch für jede Situation passt. Meist benutze ich das 50mm Objektiv, da ich es auch schon in Thailand mitgenommen habe und auch immer so zurecht kam damit. Ich sehe mich jedoch stets in den Grenzen, wenn es dann doch platztechnisch nicht klappt…aber bei größeren Gebäuden und etwas Abstand klappt das bisher, wie man auf den Fotos sehen kann 🙂
Dieses Fotoshooting war eigentlich als normales Bewerbungsfoto-shooting gedacht. Das haben wir auch zunächst gemacht, aber dann sind wir zu den etwas anderen Fotos gelangt. Am Mediapark in Köln kann man schön herumwandern und ich habe dort schon ein paar Fotos gemacht. Mit gefällt die Ecke sehr 🙂
For about three years there is an exhibition I wanted to visit and in the last few days of its opening I finally went. It was a metal installation on the highest floor of the K21, a museum in Düsseldorf. There you can climb up and on it and feel how it is to float high above the ground. It was terrifying and exhilirating at the same time. It was worth it, I must say!
Other than that there were a lot of interesting exhibitions to look at. From spiderwebs to weird +16 (it should have been +18 years…) rooms to a room with just an egg in it. Modern art?
Here are my impressions of it! Feel free to comment and visit my other stuff on my homepage or facebook 🙂
This is a re-upload from my former portfolio-page. I hope you don’t mind…
Letztens war ich kurz in Paris und konnte wieder diese tollen Gebäude genießen. Einfach eine wunderschöne Stadt, die man wirklich öfters gesehen haben muss. Ich genieße es wirklich durch die belebten Straßen zu gehen. Dieses Mal war ich nicht so lange dort und konnte auch nicht allzu viele Fotos schießen, aber dafür ein paar. Ich hoffe euch gefallen sie.
Now I’ve posted almost everything I wanted to post about my month in Thailand. It was a blast, I must say! I really would like to go there again, travel to the nearby countries and discover a lot more. The question is: When? I really don’t know…I never was really outside of my comfort zone as much as in Thailand, being there on my own and trying to get by. Now I know I can handle it. To sum up the photography aspect of the journey: I think there is so much so discover still. I only saw small waterfalls unfortunately and I did not see too much of the non-touristy places. While being in these tourist populated cities, I still could capture a lot of great landscapes and street life. I am glad that I could combine a lot of fun (i.e. parties) and traditional activities (i.e. temples, discovering new corners of cities).
For now this is all about Thailand. Here are the the final photos of my trip back to Germany. I hope you like them as well! Plus, feel free to connect via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter 🙂
After the north part of Thailand I wanted to go to the south and enjoy some beaches on some islands. I had only one week left, so I could not go everywhere. First I had to get to the south by flying to Krabi (skipping Phuket) with the plan to go to Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta. I did go to the islands, but after this part I still had to go the same way back to Bangkok for my flight back. So firstly I show the Krabi part. The only beach I visited was the Railey Beach. Krabi on its own was a little too quiet, nothing much to see. The highlight would be the Tiger Temple on top a mountain. You had to take the stairs, 1237 steps to be exact. This was very exhausting, but worth it. Other than that there wasn’t much to see unfortunately.
Chiang Mai was awesome, I really liked it there. It had a good vibe, it was not too big, not too small, a nice town to stay for a couple of days. However, I wanted to see something else in my month in Thailand. So I decided to stay a little in Chiang Rai, way up north of Thailand. From friends I heard a lot of good things about it and I was really excited to go to some nice viewpoints. This, however, did not happen. I could not get to the best place to be: Phu Chi Fa. For getting there I needed to drive four hours on a dangerous road, which I could not handle. That’s what the people told me. Just google the place, it seemed like the best viewpoint in the whole of Thailand. Bummer.
Arriving at Chiang Rai was also not that great. It felt like a too small place with a bad vibe. I do not know why, but I immediately had a bad feeling about it.
This is why I did not do sooo much in Chiang Rai. I stayed there for two nights and that was it. In this time I still did a little: The White Temple, The Black House and the Long Neck Tribe. These are some impressions of it. I hope you like them! Feel free to connect via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram! 🙂
Soo…what I did: I imported everything from khitostrol.wordpress.com into my main blog. Why? Because it seemed that everything that I did while being on the other site got directed into my writing blog, where I really did not do much in the last months and won’t in the next.
I know, it is a rather sudden to change everything, but I think the three followers can handle it 😀
Let’s see if this works out. If not, I will change it again or stick to this forever.
