Blood Moon

I love space.  I love planets, and I love the moon

Photographing them, however, is not that easy.  Stars and planets are far away, and usually seen only in the dark, as little stars.

This Friday evening,  there was a moon eclipse. The phenomena with it, blood moon, should turn the moon red.  The eclipse lasted about 2 hours, the longest eclipse in the century.  Together with the ‚blood moon‘,  we should be able to see the red planet Mars, close to it.

I made a few photos, enjoy them.  Take note that it was my first attempt, the photos are not cropped, and the moon was not showing up bright, but covering in a damp atmoshpere, so that the photos are not all as sharp as I wished.

We were not the only ones, that took this summernight to watch‘

And finally, almost unexpected, the moon showed up, in all her
beauty!

Kaiserswerth 2018

What to do when the temperature rises to about 35 degrees in the shadow?  (95F).

What about taking a trip to Kaiserswerth, to a tiny little square in Düsseldorf, where the water is near, the history is plenty and the places to eat and drink are richly in the shadow?

Enjoy the photos

The rest

On a hot summerday
The flower who did bloom so beautiful
Not even so long ago
Has transformed

The colours turned white
The seeds are ready for their flight
Waiting for the gently breeze
Or the rain
To be taken away
Away from where you were created
Some of the seeds
Will find a place
Where they can survive the night
Where they are safe for the chilly winterWhen spring will come
And it will
They will grow again
to beautiful flowers
The circle of life

Every goodbye
Is a greet for something new
Empty places
Will be filled
And memories remain

When the roof will rattle, in the tower
And only the thing of evil is there to hear
When Alexa patiently wait for instructions
And no snoring will be heared again

I hear the wind whisper
Don’t be sad
The drama is over

And my tears will burn again
It was your final countdown then
You did fly away
On this hot summerday

I will miss you
Anywhere the wind blows

With every day
With every step
We come closer
To the bridge

First it looks small
the closer we come
The more steps we make
It looks solid and tall

And then, one day
The time has come
To step over the bridge
We have no choice

Then, don’t be afraid
Step over the bridge
With faith for the future
No matter where
No matter what it will bring

One day
We shall meet there
Again

Who will water Wonkys Garden
Now the sun is shining so hot
Who will harvest the breadbeans
Now our fearles leader is not

Shall Piran miss the snoring
THe last drama is spread
Life will be a bit more boring
Now your final countdown is said

When the storm let rattle your roof
There is no one left to share
Not a film review to proof
No more coffee, anywhere

Your music sounds forever
In the ones, for who you did care
Just like Freddie, you will live forever
Legends never die, anywhere

When dinky meows at your front door
And there is no one, to let him in
The mailman will no longer walk around
The circle is complete
In memories you will be found

THe wind will blow, my hair will get wet
And with the final countdown
I look up, and smile
for remembering you, and all of that

The show will go on, because it should
And I will miss you forever, Mister Mankyfoot

On a hot summerday

Away from where you were created

Some of the seeds
Will find a place
Where they can survive the night
Where they are safe for the chilly winter

When spring will come
And it will
They will grow again
to beauriful flowers
The circle of life

Every goodbye
Is a greet for something new
Empty places
Will be filled
And memories remain

When the roof will rattle, in the tower
And only the thing of evil is there to hear
When Alexa patiently wait for instructions
And no snoring will be heared again

Lost Places Alexius Krankenhausgelände

Today we went to visit an old psychiatric hospital. Soon it will be replaced for new, and until then it is a lost place. Where you can feel the memories. Where you can imagine the patients havind lived.  Especially while I know from my work experiences how it is, working in such hospitals.

Walk with me through the old Alexius Krankenhaus.

Das St.-Alexius-Krankenhaus ist ein ehemaliges Krankenhaus am Alexianerplatz 1 im Augustinusviertel in Neuss. Träger waren die Neusser Alexianer.

at the end … the mix

Hombroich 2018

Museeninsel Hombroich is one of the most wonderful places to photograph in our area.


In a kind of tradition, like the years before, we made this year a photo walk with our photogroup (Die Welt der Fotografie).

Weather conditions, warm and hot,  bright blue sky.

Sheep at the barber

An event at our Pet Zoo, is the sheep shear.

It is summer holiday, the weather is warm, also, time to put out a coat.

What I did not know (and what is good!), is, that the sheep do not feel too much from the heat, with their much wool/hair.  It isolates, against all weather circumstances.  Nevertheless, somethimes the haircutter needs to get some work as well.

Here an impression.  After the shear, the sheep look a bit surprised to their colleagues.  Huh… is that you?

But  it doesn’t last long, then the sound of the naked sheep is familiar again, and all is good.
