Hugos House of Photo Horror


Business trip to Seattle, visiting Microsoft. 8 hours difference and attending a conference do take a bit of a toll on my brain and time, so not many photographs and mostly touristy stuff.

Visiting Santorini

We longed for some sun after the long and chilly winter and spring. So we went to Santorin - what better place to enjoy the sun than a volcano in th emiddle of the greek mediteranean sea? And we enjoyed it. Yes, this is one of those boring holiday photo albums. Sorry!

To see all the photos, just click on the photo below and wait for the page to load.

We stayed in a little village at the edge of the island - Megalochori. That's "big village" translated, quite a mouthful for a vilage of 250 inhabitants. But it was lovely and a great place to start tours all over the island, wether it was for hitting the beach at Perissa, the ancient prehistoric city at Akrotiri or the capital Thira or the lovely villages Oya, Finikia, Pyrgos or Firostefani.


It's about the light, right?

Photography is all about the light. So cut out the color, and just leave the light - and that is the fascination of black and white. I have a collection of my black and white photography on my site, best way to visit them is to use the "monochrome" link in the top of the site, since it is an album that will be building up over time, newest show at the top.


Vienna Calling

Vienna called and we listened. Well, actually it called twice, but only the second time we were able to visit. And so we got to see all the treasures of Vienna - both in the streets and in the museums. And what museum it was - the Kunsthistorisches Museum reopened it's Kunstkammer just starting this month (so in the end we were lucky in having to skip the first vacation), packed with the treasures of the House of Habsburg.

The weather wasn't the best, but not the worst, either. But it leaves some of the photographs with a bit murky sky. At least we didn't drown and didn't freeze to death (although the latter was a close call with snow on our last day). But we had a lot of fun and a lot of culture (sadly the Mozart museum didn't allow photographs and so did the Musikverein where we went for a concert) and can share this with you. Have fun.
