NYC – the Cab Town

For me a photo from New York City without a yellow taxi on it, is not a photo from New York City.

Of course a joke, but really, when I have been there in 1993 taking photos of the skyscrapers from the street or the Empire State Building, there was always at least one taxi on the image.

See here some of the photos I have found in my archive.

Mont-Saxonnex

Mont-Saxonnex lays above the Arve valley in the french alps. The village’s church is build on one of the most beautiful spots I have seen – beside Mont-St-Michel in the Bretagne. The view to the Arve valley is breathtaking.

Barcelona!

In December 2011 and last February I have been a couple of hours in Barcelona before heading north to the Pyrenees.

Beside the fantastic architecture to discover, this is a  paradise for street photography. Although in the economical crisis, this city is so dynamic and full of life. I drove from the airport to the Placa de Catalunya parking, passing one of the most terrible roundabouts in my life. Just by walking the streets around the Placa de Catalunya with  La Rambla, the cathedral, Mercado de San Jose and the Placa Reial gave me  great impressions – and photos.

Also the area around the El Prat Airport is wonderful to see. South of  Terminal 2 I found a nature reserve used by many citizens for walking, jogging and relaxing. Furthermore the community installed a platform for plane spotting (see  here all the places, I enjoyed staying at points 1,2,3).

Here some of my impressions from a 2 hours photowalk.
