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…
In the old town of Warszaw, 2009Canon EOS 350D, 17-40 L, F4, 1/10, ISO 400
Somewhere in Paris, 2011Canon EOS 7D, 70-200 L IS, F5,6, 1/45 Sek, ISO 200
On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of concentration camp Auschwitz in Poland, I upload some impressions of my 2008 trip. Can’t repeat often enough that any young German shall visit the two sites in Auschwitz and Birkenau to maybe get at least the spark of an idea what horror crimes had been commited here…

A wonderful paradise, also for black and white photography.

All analogue photography, Canon EOS 1n, EF 28-105 and EF 70-200 L, Agfa APX100 und Fuji Neopan films, scaned prints
This is the first post after I sold most of my DSLR equiment and joined Fuji’s photographer community with range finder X-pro1. You can tell me whatever you want, the sharpness of these pictures is extraordinary… I love it totally.
Dear all, in autumn 2001 I launched bilderzone.de to share some of black and white photos. Since then different forms of presentations have been used, hard coded HTML and flash, and now it is time to update to responsive design so that bilderzone.de is also visible on mobile devices as well as on desk top computers.
Of course, it is the idea to continue presenting black and white photography but not limited to that. From time to time some great views appear in colour, too. It always a question of each individual situation… During the next weeks some well-known motifs of mine will come back online to initiate a first exhibition. In addition, I will add results from my day-to-day photo strolls to make bilderzone.de my regular photo blog. Overall, pictures from more than 25 years of analogue and digital photography are available.
I hope you like what you see. Feedback is always warmly welcome. Thanks!
