I enjoy taking photos, looking at them and working with them:
creating cards, albums, galleries, books, and movies.
Living in California I see daily beautiful scenery - and it is
changing throughout the year. Just walking out
our doors we are within the Foothills, reaching up to 1800 feet,
grassy areas, Eucalyptus trees and old oaks with views to the San Francisco Bay, marshland with wide views,
adjacent to busy Silicon Valley but very peaceful. Close by
there is the Pacific with the gorgeous coastline: Halfmoon
Bay, Santa Cruz, Monterey, beautiful Big Sur, and San Francisco. It is just
3 hours drive to the High Sierra, to the Yosemite Park and Mono Lake
We enjoy little trips and hikes around this beautiful area -
and I am always eager for a new perfect shot
As our son and his
family have moved to Christchurch, New Zealand, we traveled
several times to New Zealand visiting them and enjoying the
magnificent scenery of New Zealand. During every visit we
found new lovely spots in New Zealand - new photo opportunities for
We were in Christchurch every year for several weeks for Christmas
and for the last years since 2010 we felt the earthquakes and

I lived in Hamburg
for the first 40 years - I still consider it my hometown. I
have been back quite a lot, always trying to capture my memories on
I love to see flowers
grow and birds fly - and I am happy if I can capture a wonderful
flower or a special bird.
One photo is worth
1000 words - how much is a combination of 2 words worth?
I do not only take the photos, I also manipulate them into something
new - my Fun Photos.
I like to play Golf.
There are a lot of Golf Courses around, my favorite ones are
Shoreline Golf Links and Santa Teresa, where I play regularly.
Very often, when the Sun is shining and the grass is bright and
green I am even more focused on the nice views around - taking
photos - than watching my golf ball. We still are members of
Saratoga Country Club, where I played a lot of tennis. I still
swim every day in the beautiful pool and sometimes I play golf up
there - always enjoying the views.
We like our trips
along Big Sur, to Point Reyes and across Sonora Pass to Bodie, Mono
Lake, and the Saddlebag Lake.
