Bo-Kaap. The oldest part of Cape Town. It has a very sad history. At this time I had a Canon 5D MK III and the wonderful 8-15mm Fisheye lens. Unfortunately I lost the original raw files … So this are the, mostly, unedited jpgs from 2013. I really wish that South Africa would be a safer place. The tour we did back then, it  would not be possible to do it today. 

Kalahari desert

In 2013 I had the chance to visit South Africa (more photos will follow) and our first stop was the Kalahari desert. We made a bio break and I was outside the car and suddenly out of nothing the spotted  hyena appears just 20m away from me. Even though it was an extremely dangerous encounter, I was quite relaxed and enjoyed the beauty of nature and this wild animal. The bite force is 920 kp, a Lion has 650 kp and a German Shepherd 230 kp. They live in packs up to 130 animals … Of course I was glad that she run away …


A short visit to Almada

A couple of days ago I had the chance to do a quick visit to Almada. Very interesting area also a bit scary, there wasn’t a single person on the street, but I definitely will go back there.


Off the beaten path in Porto …

Fortaleza do Guincho

The Praia do Guincho is a very beautiful part of the portuguese coast just a bit outside of Cascais. For the last three years we used to spend a couple of nights at the Fortaleza do Guincho which is a very nice Hotel at an amazing location.

Deep Porto

Walking through Porto in January with my M9M.
