La Gomera shotsJanuar 2nd, 2011
My trip to La Gomera was amazing though I did not see any good waves for surfing over there. The rugged island is lush and green as it can be with a very tropical feeling along the beaches and in the deep valleys. Going up the steep mountains you will find a mystic forest with clouds of fog randomly falling down – just like from a smoke machine in a night club! It’s a very quiet and laid-back place, not too much going on, so definitely a recommendation for those looking for some nature experiences. Only Valle Gran Rey, the sweet little tourist village we stayed at, was definitely a little too German for my taste… Find some shots from this trip below, the urban sceneries were captured in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, where we had a short stop-over. As frequent readers of this blog might recognize, the space ship architecture is by Santiago Calatrava.
Shore leave: AndalusiaSeptember 11th, 2010
My last shore leave lead me to the beautiful South of the Spanish mainland in late August / early September. Andalusia is a truely wonderful place with spectacular landscapes streching out beyond clear blue skies and lots of cosy, laid-back villages as well as some charming cities with beautiful faces to discover… But enough words, let the pictures speak for themselves!
Boom Festival 2010 picturesAugust 29th, 2010
Breath-taking constructions, installations and decorations, an outstanding diverse and kicking lineup, presented on sound systems that delivered a really physical music experience and between all of this a multicoloured mixture of some of the most beautiful and blissful people from all around this planet… My fourth Boom experience was an absolutely unique one and probably the best festival I have seen up to today. It was a huge honour to be part of this temporary autonomous zone for ten days, not only by playing an amazing DJ set together with Sam on the stage of the monumental Dance Temple but also by the simple fact of being present at the wonderful venue out there at Idanha-a-Nova. Find a fragmentary photographic documentation of this adventure below.
Urban Exploration: The tuberculosis sanatoriumMärz 13th, 2009
Its pretty funny to see that there are specialized scenes for quite every activity conceiveable: Dynamite fishing, collecting bogeys… what ever. Beside my passion for surfing the internet, the oceans and the couches of this planet I really enjoy taking pictures as you might already have realized. A passion not everybody understands in this respect is my enthusiasm for ghost towns, ruins and abandoned buildings. But as I now found, there is quite a huge scene for this activity called the Urbex scene which stands for Urban Exploration. At the moment I am staying in the Berlin area and some days back I made a very exciting expedition to an abandoned tuberculosis sanatorium. Though not really brilliant light conditions these days, the trip to this vast complex of buildings turned out to be one of my most amazing urban explorations so far and delivered quite some nice shots: Have a look at the gallery section!
