Old house in Maulbronn, Germany, 1986 Driving home from a long ex­cursion, it was getting too late to continue driving, so I decided to sleep in the car. When I woke up from the first sun­rays, I realized that had parked in front of his old house. Opened Berlin Wall, Germany, December 1989 In October 1989, I decided to stay in Ber­lin for New Year's Eve 1989.  I had booked trans­portation and accomo­dation only days before the first news from the gap in the Wall reached me on November 9.  Now I was there in the middle of Ber­lin and ex­perienced world history first-hand and hands-on - I helped the wall peckers. Traffic light at house wall, Haigerloch, Germany, 1984 In Haige­loch, a village in a deep valley of the river Eyach, on certain spots, there is not much room for streets and traffic signs, so this traffic light was directly mounted to a house wall.

High-rise buildings in Berlin in the evening, with full moon, Germany, 1990 The dusk was just falling when I strolled around Ber­lin's central rail­way station, waiting for my train. The cloud's fading colors gave the rising moon an even paler look. Demolished gravel factory building in Malmsheim (Stuttgart area), Germany, September 1985 On a summer day, I loaded a black&white film to take pictures of an old gravel factory building in Malms­heim near Stutt­gart, that was just being demo­lished. During the week­end, I had enough time to find strange scenes in those places where people used to work for decades. Graffiti text: "the love, my darling, is infinitely deep. Learn to swim and I will hold you!", Marbach, Germany, 1989 When I travelled in the Stuttgart area, I came across this house with a graffiti sprayed on it.  The graffiti text was probably taken from the title of a German film.  The house was reno­vated around 2001, so the graffiti is probably gone by now.
