Bye. Bye. Bamberg.

Friday, August 28. 2009

Two more nights - that's all that's left. Right? today I had a kind of sad experience in leaving my flat in Bamberg - it was no longer a real flat, but more a big storage room. So finally I got to cope with the thought that Bamberg, which was my center of life for quite some time (like 10 years now) is no longer in fast reach..

Anyway. The new flat is great! Might post about it next.

P.S. To all my readers: If you are bored this Sunday afternoon, helping hands for loading the truck in Bamberg are appreciated!

Sandkerwa pictures – Part 2

Saturday, October 27. 2007

Guess, since I already titled a post about Sandkerwa picures as “Part 1” I should come up with the second part. In fact, those pictures are already online in my image gallery for quite some while, but I didn’t find the time to reflect on them. I want to use this post to show you life on the Sandkerwa besides the one you already could see in my previous post.

ThursdayThursday before I threw myself into the “big action” at the Haas Säle, I had the chance to meet my friend Michael and his fiancé Christina at the Stilbruch pub. Somehow I didn't manage to get a picture of Christina, though :-(.

FridayFriday I met DJ Funboy at his venue and afterwards had a nice stroll throughout the festical area. we had a great Netzwerk e.V. get together at the Sodabar, afterwards all of us were partying at the Haas Säle.

SaturdaySaturday I first chilled having a few bears sitting at a window at the Sodabar and later spent quite some time at the Katzenberg with my friends Thomas, Sabine and Fabian. Following Fabian's initiative I had a look at the new opened club "U" but later on ended up at the cm-club.

City Cafe BeachMy Sunday afternoon was spoiled by an endless presentation and I couldn't make it to the blogger meeting in time. But since Jan was playing his lounge music up into the evening I still had the chance to enjoy his music for a few hours at the Sodabar. After taking concert pictures of the Los Chicolores at the Haas Säle I met Katrin and Martin in the streets, and had some drinks outside. Our evening ended at the City cafe.

On Monday I planned to take it easy, but a few friends took me to the "U" club after I finished my picture session at the Haas Säle, and chatting with old friends I stayed there for quite a while.

Bloggermeeting and barbecue at Oda's place

Wednesday, October 3. 2007

Blogger MeetingYesterday I had the pleasure to attend a meeting of Bamberg's blogosphere. It took place in the garden of Oda's sweet little house, and we also had a barbecue there. Before the whole thing started, I've already to note a lesson learned: never try to buy groceries before a public holiday. I had volunteered to buy the beer and ended up waiting twenty minutes at the checkout lane of Real.- Attending for probably the last time was Jan, who leave us for Hamburg, soon. We had a lot of fun, discussed many many issues, event had a kind of stand up comedy, and even sang some old songs. If you want to get a better impression have a look at the pictures.

Workshop "The New Net"

Thursday, September 20. 2007

Starting tomorrow with a get-together at the Klosterbräu brewery, I will attend a Workshop about further developments of the internet in Bamberg. Since the workshop is about new movements in the web, of course current web technologies are used to support it. You can have a look at the workshop weblog or even use the workshop wiki. Using the conference tag "dnn2007" pictures taken can be found at Flickr, articles related to the workshop can be discovered via technorati, and also related links via

The program is very promising, and I’m looking forward to interesting discussions.

Sandkerwa pictures – Part 1

Wednesday, September 12. 2007

This year’s Sandkerwa I’ve been working for to get them images of their parties. It was just a matter of hard work. While everybody is partying like hell, get over 100 people willingly in front of your lens, take a picture that suits both you and them, and then at the great finale of the party sit in the office and get the pictures sorted and online immediately afterwards. I finally put together a little report about my duty.

ThursdayFor my part it didn’t start too well on Thursday. On Wednesday I had helped out DJing, and was disappointed, when almost no one showed up at the warm-up party. Then on Thursday the party didn’t start too busy, too… But having a lot of friends around helped though the evening, and to the end the crowd was partying well enough to get some nice shots.

Friday I had learned from Thursday, and checked in pretty late on Friday, after partying with friends at other venues. So I took my pictures in a little rush – not too much time to speak to my friends, who also showed up there to take pictures. Playing around with the Night-Portrait option I got a few pretty interesting pictures.

Saturday Saturday for sure is the best visited day at the Sandkerwa. Therefore finally the heat was on at the Haas-Säle. It wasn’t too hard to get good pictures. Seems like the more drunk people get the more pleasant they are in dealing with photographers.

Sunday Sunday is one of the weaker days at the Haas-Säle, therefore a concert is hosted at this day. The Los Chicolores just drew enough people to allow a few pictures that give the impression of a good party, but in my opinion… well just not very well visited. I took the approach to take pictures like I do it on other concerts and left after the Los Chicolores were done to come back later. But later there were only a few people having cocktails at the terrace. So I ended up having only a small picture gallery for that day.

MondayOn Monday I was really happy, that I would be done afterwards. I resisted in taking too much picture of the fireworks, and afterwards had just another walk through the crowd while asking whether the people would like to have a picture taken for the homepage. Although I was already quite pissed after four days doing the same job over and over, this day’s gallery might be the best of the five mentioned above.
