Former industry site in Saarbrücken-Burbach, Germany, 1989 On my way from Saar­brücken to Trier, I noticed several closed industry sites.  It was a strange feeling to walk on a ground that had once been busy, but now it was silent and nature was slow­ly winning the place back. Graffiti 'Birds' on Danube canal wall, Vienna, Austria, 2007 I was walking along a Danube canal near Vienna's center, when I noticed this beauti­ful graffiti which re­minded me of Flamingos. According to the artist's signature, it was created already 1996 but it was still fine.

Painted house in Moscow, Russia, 1990 During a visit to Moscow, I spent some time on my own.  I found the painting on the house truly re­markable: an apple in a tree within an apple. Sunflower in my garden, near Stuttgart, Germany, 2003 In the summer of 2003, the sun­flowers in my garden were just blooming. The sun­flower it­self is gone for a long time (it is in bloom only once and then dies), but a little part of its beauty lives on in the picture. Buoys ashore, Cochem, Germany, 1989 When I was in Cochem at the river Mosel, I went for a walk along the river­bank. At a place where the river buoys were stored, I found this inter­esting pair in contrasting colors.

Little flower among cobblestones in Reutlingen, Germany, 2007 When I went shopping, I noticed this little flower that had sprung up in an entrance among all the cobble­stones. Old Castle "Herzogskasten" in Ingolstadt, Germany, 2007 A friend took me on a tour through his native town Ingol­stadt in Bavaria, Germany. Among the numerous historical buildings, I found the Old Castle (also called "Herzogs­kasten", literally: "duke's barn") especially inter­esting be­cause of its white façade and its inter­esting gable wall. Moon behind lighthouse Faro de Rasca, Teneriffa, 2006 When I was about to combine the light­house's red-white color contrast with the dark blue sky for a photo­graph, I realized that the moon was in position that fitted in with the picture.
