Arnhem Station

On my way back home to Berlin I had the chance to spend an hour of Fuji photography with the fascinating architecture of Arnehm’s main train station. People were just rushing in and out but for me totally new, there was a lot to see for nice new black and white motifs. Also the sunny sky helped out to play with grey scales and shadows.

1 HOUR IN PARIS

As a busy working dad it is hard to find time to concentrate on regular sessions of photography… So I defined myself such “1 hour sessions” based on a simple committment: You have 60 minutes, make the best of it. Other follow the guidelines of 365, each day a photo or 52, each week a series but I am more than happy to have one hour here or there, especially when I am on business trips. The first session under these conditions I spent in Paris.

IN THE STREETS

During my business trips across Europe I try to have at least a small camera with my and ready to shot at any time. Some moments simply tell their own tales…
