Yes, I know, it sounds like a cheap excuse… …but I need photos of nude women for a photo-painting-exhibition of me and my russian painter friend Alexeij.
Thanks to my female co-worker Aleksandra we started and finished the photo shoot very, very spontaneously. For both of us it was the first nude session… …and it was fun.. ..a lot.
Frankly spoken it was just a test how to work with lights… …but frankly spoken… …wow… …thanks, dear Aleksandra… ….you look great… …and yes, let’s do more! 🙂
Buchara / Uzbekistan

– these warmhearted people
– to be on the way
– the impressions
– the encounters
…everything so precious.
Oyster farming in Cancale / Brittany
From it’s small spat’s size to its harvest, a Cancale oyster needs minimum 3 years of work in the bay of Le Mont Saint Michel.
Many handelings are necessary to grow an oyster lapped by the fastest tides in Europe. At low tide part of the vast oyster beds can visited.
Cancale calls himself the “oyster capital” of Brittany. Oysters are bred here in the intertidal zone, namely the Pacific Oyster (5,000 t, as of: 2000) and the rarer European Oyster (1,000 t, as of: 2000). Both varieties enjoy a good reputation among connoisseurs.

cast away, stranded, out of use, forgotten… ..but we’ll back !!!
In 1979 the town of Stari Bar/Montenegro was destroyed by an earthquake. After that the old town of Bar (first mentioned in the 9th century) was abandoned and immediately rebuild at the mediterranean shore. After now 36 years you can see what nature has claimed back .
I love the way how russian care about their health. To emphasize that I just want to say one word: Russian Sauna!
If there is a place where I felt really grounded and down to earth.. ..than it is it the dacha of my mother in law. A place where I can really relax and get rid of my sorrows. Thank you dear Aida Stepanovna, this one is for you… …a place which makes you happy, as much as it does for me…
