Collage of 3 Images, all made in Munich in November 2021. 2 of these pictures are multiple-exposure shots, (in Camera effects (Nikon D810)) and the image of the little Dachshund was a single image, I took at the same location, same day. Edit was made in PS, I created a collage of these images, an imaginary cityscape with a little explorer in it.

I started photography in 1994,with a Nikon FG 20.I loved textures, lines and geometry.I also trained other skills like painting, silkprint,collage.In 2009 with my first Digital Camera and my little dog Molly,I started with Photography again,but I had to learn that it was difficult to bring a story into an image.Until today,I prefer the mood in images.Every good Photographer knows his gear very well and there is some technical perfection in every good shot.But what really hits me is the creativity,spirit and a certain mood of an image even if it is not perfect.That's what drives me until today.
