Here are some photographs from my second home Australia. I love to spend as much time as I can there and enjoy the cliché life of a surfers paradise. I love the vibrant life of Sydney and the beachside life of Forster, about 350 km north of Sydney, where my parents in law live. All photos in this post are from the series "The Classics"

Spring in Germany

Spring is in Germany and this is how it looks like. The trees are in full bloom and there is a row of about 40 of this beautiful white ones next to an old building. They look like little fake ones made for model railways, absolutely amazing.

Balloon Glow

On Good Friday we went to an event at the nearby castle where they set up their huge balloons and after sunset they brought them to glow with the rhythm of music by turning on the gas of the burners. It was an amazing and kind of surreal view to see these huge balloons in front of you and the castle in the background. Like in a cartoon where the dimensions somehow are out of order.

Thanks to Bruce for taking the photo

Daydreams or Mindmovies

This is the start of a new series, I always used to work with text in my non photographic work, so I used some works from many years ago and combined the text with my photographs of today and I think it works very well. The Text is like a cliché we have in mind when we find ourselves in situations we know very well from movies, novels or even we create them in our own imagination. That's why they are called daydreams or mindmovies.
