May Ambience

On days when there are no jobs to do, and it is not fun to sit at home on the computer because the sun is tempting, I like to follow the good-weather-imperative. This is the invitation of the beautiful weather to come outside and make use of it. I then regularly sit on the saddle of my mountain bike and follow my nose. Sure, the camera is always with me ?

The following pictures were taken almost all on 8 May 2018 on a short tour on the Swiss side of the Rhine from Constance over Stein am Rhein to Diessenhofen, and from there via Gailingen, Ramsen, Moos and Radolfzell back home.

The image fruits of this day show that different souls live in my breast. One of them loves the pure and clear to almost the kitsch, another prefers the same, but with a good pinch of the opposite. So I call Numero 1 May Ambience – Pure & Clean, the other May Ambience – Slightly Grungy ­čÖé

Kari & Katherina are dancing

Kari, a physiotherapist, and Katherina, a veterinarian, both from Switzerland, combines the love of dance and movement. In the near future they like to start a larger project together, using their own mobile clips and pictures, but also some staged photos. Creating the latter was my job. We started with the first dance positions at Burg Hohenklingen. The other photos we shot above Eschenz, with a beautiful view of Lake Constance and the setting sun.

1st Hafner civic forum

A very large piece of beautiful landscape on the outskirts of Constance-Wollmatingen (north of Hafner) is to be sacrificed to the housing construction. Housing units for 6,000 future residents are to be built here. The growth of Constance does not seem to stop.

In order to be accepted by the citizens, the city leaders not only try to keep their plans transparent for everyone, but they also invite all those interested to contribute ideas, wishes and suggestions. After all, that is a big step forward compared to previous decades.

For this purpose, the 1st Hafner civic forum took place in the upper Konzil hall in Constance.

Until today I haven’t known at all that there’s a zoo for children in Constance ­čśÇ

Spring fair on the D├Âbele

For over a hundred years, the spring fair has been performing on the D├Âbele in Constance at spring time. As always, the classic Ferris wheel, ghost train, carousel and bumper cars (in South German language: Boxk├Ąrrele) are on the list of alluring rides this year. It starts this weekend.

Presentation of new dishes in the Restaurant “5. Element”

The restaurant “5. Element” in Radolfzell, Germany, has made it a habit to invite every year to a very special event, in which small appetizers of new culinary creations are presented to the finest live music. This gives visitors the opportunity to receive an overview of the new menus for little money. If anyone wonders what the name 5. element is supposed to mean, I’ll tell you: it’s love – after water, fire, earth and air. The motto of the restaurant is, “what we are doing, we do with love!” The guests feel that and obviously appreciate it. Because of that all seats were sold out, already one week before the gourmet event!
