#BergamotStation #Art in #SantaMonica


So I saw like everything at the pier, no I did not, of course not, there’s still plenty to see and many people to talk to. But I got bored anyway and decided to go around the block to see some Art at @BergamotStation, maybe there would be something exciting right? Maybe even something cheap to decorate the apartment. Okay so there were pictures at Bergamot Station mainly, but I did not take photos of pictures, I think you do not do that, and even if you do it, I don’t see why I should take pictures of pictures. But when I walked around I found some sculptures I thought…

#SantaMonica #Brentwood #Rich and #Richer


when I saw everything at bergamot station I went for another ride with my bike and took pictures of stuff I felt should be shared with you. Whenever I come home from Vienna, there’s that sign „Steiermark das grüne Herz Österreichs“ or something like that. California seems to be green likewise, and they’ve also hills all around. Specially when you come to the rich peoples places. 😉 When I wrote this, there was the economic war started between USA and Europe, Americans love their German cars. I’ve not been into cars back in Austria, but I start to like some cars around here. I have no idea if @Brentwood is…

#SantaMonica #Beach #People #Birds


I’m starting to get a little bit bored… It feels like I’ve seen almost everything I could reach by bike or Skateboard. I should go on a road trip soon, meanwhile I’ve some pictures of Santa Monica for you. That time I were at the beach and there was bread all around, while doves and seagulls have had fights on who’s bread it is there was none left for the homeless. I could not explain to myself how so many bread comes to lie arround at the beach, of course americans do not produce good bread at all, but it’s not that bad, so hou don’t have to feed it…

#Back in #SantaMonica

And again back in Santa Monica… Let’s finish that film of mine. 36 pictures before I can get it developed. Let’s…. shoot them all on the way to @Rose Photo I then will have some pictures from arround the block… So next to the Appartment there’s @The Water Garden I do not have any idea what’s going on there. It’s a big phat building with some water and green in the center… Of course what else would you expect. So there’s one thing I do not understand here. Americans fear fire, as they have wildfires arround all the time but they have public gas fire to warm yourself up, also note, the…

#Visit from #Austria @Fremont

#startingtobelate When I started google was telling me I’ll arrive arround 7pm so I called my colleague told him I’ll be in @Fremont arround 7pm. I did not think about the need to stop from time to time or have a breek to smoke a cigarett, grab some water, fuel the car… And I did not know that California had so many faces. Here’s one of them. When I arrived it was almost 9 pm. I had to stop more often than expected, after arround 2 hours the service light of „my“ Toyota Yaris iA was lighting up in orange, and I did not have any idea what the car…

#SantaMonica #InternetOddysey


#InternetWithoutPLwouldbenice To get your internet working properly is kind a pain in the ass here. I’ve been told stories that it could be not that easy, but I expected it to be easier. First things first, when I came to the appartment Internet was already working, but not really working. Back then I’ve had like 30% of Packetloss to any destination. So it wasn’t only home to austria, it was anywhere. #Ticketcreation I created a Ticket with the ISP and they sent someone over the next day. We checked the cabling, attached the Laptop directly to the modem, usual stuff. Then he measured the line and there was something like…

#SantaMonica #PhotoSession


#AnalogPhotography Yes I still stick to analogue photograph techniques for several reasons, you don’t do hundrets of pictures of the same spot, so you will not have to delete like 9 out of 10 photos. I inherited an old Minolta i7000 from my grandpa, not the best SLR camera but for me she fits. So on a sunday I decided to pick her out of her box and see what she’s capable for at the other side of the world. #firstuptotheroof First steps first, so I went up to the roof and took some shots north, south, east and west. #letsgoforaride After the first look arround, from seventh floor I…

Santa Monica Pier

#workingabroad It’s been a while now since I entered the United States on April 17th. Yes I’ve been here before and I’ve seen some places before. But no I did not have an idea what to expect, what was going to come, what the next weeks and months will be like. Okay, I knew that there’s a Pier in Santa Monica, I knew that this Pier is well known arround the world and especially to the gaming community, they have seen this Pier in several games. Don’t care which ones GTA5 of course and others. #expectations But what else could I expect? Where would I live? It has been taken…

Urbania – Part II

Part I … Seine Augen schweiften langsam von dem kleinen Cafe mit den Stehtischen die als Gastgarten fungierten, von seiner Linken über die Auslagen eines kleinen mit Modekleidern gefüllten Ladens über die Frauen und Männer die sich über die gesamte Breite der Straße von ihm weg und ihm entgegen bewegten bis zum Friseurladen und der imbissbude rechts von ihm. Ein frisch frisierter junger Mann im Anzug verlies den Friseur in eben diesem Moment. Seine Haare waren dunkel, mittel lang, also nicht Schulterlang aber auch nicht kurz geschnitten. Er hatt einen dieser typischen Schönlings Haarschnitte, die immer fettig und ungewaschen wirken durch das Gel, das den Stirnhaaren die rundliche Form gibt….

Urbania – Part I

Langsam glitt sein Körper durch die verschnörkelten Gassen der Stadt. Sein Blick schweifte die Häuserfronten empor, sie verdunkelten die Gassen, selbst zur Mittagszeit. Eine dämmrige Stimmung, Mordgens bis Abends, als würde die Zeit still stehen, als wäre immer später Nachmittag oder früher Abend. Fürs Morgengrauen war es zu düster, zu träge und traurig. Der Morgen hat selbst bei widrigsten Bedingungen etwas positives in sich, das dürfte den Menschen hier zur Gänze unbekannt sein. Normalerweise mochte er den Klang seiner Schuhe, seiner Absätze, doch jetzt war es ihm unangenehm. Der Klang prallte von den kalten Mauern ab, kam zu ihm zurück. Echo verfolgte ihn, war ihm voraus, jagte und begleitete ihn…
