A pretty place for an original Christmas market. Unfortunately the chestnuts were aweful. The rest was beautiful, but judge by yourself.
In Cologne is always something to do.
Our visit lead us to the Triangle, the 8th highest building in Cologne, with a magnificant view from 100 meter high at the ‚altdstadt‘
The Hohenzollernbrücke is known about its many ‚love slots‘ that are chained at the bridge. The loving couples, in tradition, throw the keys in the Rhine. And what is left … is love.
Visiting Colgne in December makes a visit at the christmas markets (and the mulled wine) obligatory!
Cologne. Kölle. Simply a wonderful city.
Traveling through the sky
With so much blue to fly
Amazing paintings are passing by
Sometimes I wish to touch
Some days I wish too much
Time glides away, in a rush
Most of the time, I spent with dreams
About a better world
And it seems
The more this dreams come true
The longer I dream of you
The sunshine is rare
But it still is there
When the light reflects
And the last rose has only one leave left
I realize how little is used
To shine beautiful
Don’t be sad, when you no longer can hold
Drop gently, remembering the words untold
Your beauty is catched, lives in my heart
Soon you will flower again
New leaves, new life
New light. We shall survive
It is the most wonderful time of the year….
For many people it also is the most stressfull time of the year.
For photographers it is the time of the year, that nature gets asleep, and the lenses are focussed at the light. In Germany there are christmas markets at many places. Herewith a selection of places that I visited this year’s christmas season.
Christmas market Düsseldorf Köbogen/Shadowplatz
Christmas Market Neuss
Lorettostrasse Düsseldorf Lamps for christmas
Christmas market (s) in Cologne

In the 70s and 80s, a lot of cities were having the spot on un-used buildings, what were occupied by people who needed homes.
Some of those ‚occupations‘ ended successfully, other remarkable.
Remarkable successfull was the action to save a street in Düsseldorf.
The Kiefern Straße was saved from project developers, and became an open monument for (street) art and more.
We visited on a very cold day. Our cameras were getting wet a bit, but they survived.
Afterwards we were taking a little pre-taste of the upcoming christmas markets.
When photographers photograph …
Here you find the photos that I selected for the Teddy Bear Calendar 2019
The bears are hand made by Inge, and, as well as the calendar, on sale. Write a comment below, if you are intrested,
Or visit the wonderful Weihnachtsmarkt Holzbütchen , at December 8 and 9 2018.
I think left and walk to the right
Everyone laughs when I talk about serious stuff tonight
I peal potatoes and realize
That I was intending to cook some rice
I found no butter in the fridge
Again to the shop, I got finally this
I walk out after that I had paid
hello, your donout, the cashier said..
I want to let you read a thing
The wrong page again is showing
I admit I am confused
But my heart has its natural boost
One thing I did learn all through the time
The chaos thing is a part of mine
And if you doubt if you want to handle this, or can
I just feel sorry for you, man
