Best of Istanbul, Edogan take a break! It makes me really sad to see “my Instanbul” and the people of Istanbul suffer. I had great moments there. Once on a backpacking trip to Turkey and by luck I ran intoFatih Akinand had a great time with him and his filmcrew while they filmed The Edge of Heaven in Istanbul. And once celebrating new year 2010/2011. How can you not fall in love with a city with such a great history, with so good food, so friendly people and so rich in culture? And it makes me angry seeing someone attacking it. My fullest support, at least a bit, to the people on the streets of Istanbul – sadly only digital but worth a try.
Ristorante Bologna Varese: Travelling to Italy, food is always one reason why we love this country. Just after the border of Switzerland there comes Varese, and Ristorante Bologna is the place to see and to eat, if you want it rustic and authentic italian. We enjoyed to stay there for two nights and were lucky to get at least one table to celebrate Maria´s birthday and sadly the reservation for the other Birthday guests the next day did not work out so well – anyway, Italy was great, as always.
Super Mamika Goldberger – Sascha Goldberger:
The nephew and successful French photographer Sascha Goldberger wanted to cheer his sad grandma (91 years old) up by taking some bizarre images of her. What started as a small project is now known worldwide and grandma aka. Super Mamika Goldberger is quite star.
An photographer/artist who seems to be a lot outdoors at night. His photos seem to me to be from another planet. The effect on his images is the extreme aperture of his camera to capture images at night. Even the first photo is shot by night at shows a “moonbow”. For more of his work have a look at his gallery.
