Prittlbach - Outback

3

My Hometown. Here I grew up, ate sand, hurt my knees and so on. It's place nearby Munich, but far enough away to be on the countryside. I'm always coming back to my hometown for visiting my parents. I love it to go for a walk on the fields and watch the clouds and the trees. It's perfect for a sunny but also for a "snowy" day.

That’s my hometown. Here I grew up, here i fell down and here I stood up again. My knee knows the ground and I know the fields outside of this little town. Out there we’ve played in the summer and in the winter. It was perfect and it is still perfect in every time of the year.You can go for a walk or you can do some sports, with or without the bike.

Of course you can also only be satisfied by looking around you. Several times in the year I’m driving home to relax a bit at my parents house and then I go out for a walk to remind myself of all this days in my childhood. It isn’t long ago but it is still nice to remember this glory days without pressure and stress. High Five For My Hometown.

Take a timeout and take a look.

    Reviving An Old Polaroid 1000 Camera

    Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!

    The World According to Herr Willie: Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

    Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.

Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    A Salute to the Masters: Ice Skating (A Tribute to Monte Fresco)

    This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.
