Passau, The "3 Rivers Town"

3

Passau is a nice little city at the border between Bavaria (Germany) and Austria and is called the "3 rivers town": the main river is the Danube (or Donau), crossed by the Inn and the Ilz rivers

That location, on 3 rivers and on the country border gives this city all his character and interest. It’s a roman city foundation, and all along the past history, this city played an important role in many different situations. When you come into the city (by highway it’s the A3 from Regensburg to Linz), follow the signs to the old city and park there. Then (and that’s the great pleasure) just go into the narrow streets of the old city and discover it.

You can follow the signs to the Stephansdom (or St Stephen’s cathedral), beautiful “baroque” church built in 1688 which is really worth the visit! Then go north in direction of the majestic Danube river and walk along direction east. After a while, you’ll come to the intersection with the Inn river and you can walk way west along this other beautiful “riverscape”. If the sun is shining you have a lot of different colors in this city, and the light of the river is great too. A perfect place to walk and take pictures! :)

    A Salute to the Masters: The Mediterranean Sea (A Tribute to Édouard Boubat)

    This article is a tribute to an important street photographer, Edouard Boubat. His pictures are characterized by great poetic touch, strong social sensitivity, and utmost respect for people and places. Inspired by a book which contains Boubat's photos taken in the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, I pay homage by showcasing some of my photos taken within the same geographic area.

    A Salute to the Masters: R.I.P. (A Tribute to George Krause)

    This article is dedicated to the multifaceted American photographer George Krause and to his series depicting funeral monuments realized between 1962 and 1963. I was able to know about this series thanks to an important essay on photography written by former Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Director of Photography, John Szarkowski. For this tribute, I loaded my trusty Praktica camera with a roll of Ilford film and took a series of photos in the Monumental Cemetery in my city, Como. Take a look!

    Spinner 360: Pull the Cord and Let the Magic Happen!

    The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."

    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.
