Snowy days

Snow in the mountains

In the last few days we've gotten a lot of snow here in Munich and its just stunning to see how it changes the light in our apartment (the light over all really) the sound on the streets and how particularly beautiful it is when the sun is shining and the snow starts to sparkle everywhere.

First Snow of the Season

First SnowFirst SnowFirst SnowFirst SnowFirst Snow
A few more pictures from our days with friends at a hut in the mountains. We had the first snow of the season there and it was interesting for me to see how Matilda handled it as she was experiencing the cold white stuff for the very first time. She kept on saying 'hot' and wasn't so sure what to think about it in the beginning, but after throwing some snow balls and building a snow man with our friends she got friendly with it :)

I loved how calm it was up there and also that it was just an hour away from our apartment in Munich - that thought actually blew me away a few times and just made me realize that its important to get out and about and collect such great experiences a lot more often.

The view from the living room of the hut out to the mountains seemed to be changing so many times during the day. We watched the sun rise in the morning behind the mountains and also the sun, snow and clouds doing their show during the day.

Hope you all had a great start into the new year.

A light leak

Light Leak
Light leaks are special to me and sometimes I think they make a photo even more perfect.

This time something went wrong with the film in my camera (the danger of shooting film I guess) and I had to already roll it up after only shooting half of it (which is annoying). However I am glad that at least a few photos made it and particularly those I took when I was at a little mountain hut with Matilda and friend and her daughter mid November.
It was snowy and just beautiful! This is where I took this photo.

Have a great start into the new year.

Lenbachhaus Museum Munich

Lenbachhaus Museum Munich

A quick snap for you of the Lenbachhaus which I took while I passed it with my bike later Summer, early Autumn.
Its a wonderful museum which I highly recommend seeing/visiting when you are in town. At the moment they have a great 'Blaue Reiter' exhibition on which we went to a few times already. But not only the art inside of the museum is worth a visit also the new look it got (by Norman Foster) a few years back looks really great.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone,

Autumn with Matilda

Autumn with Matilda
Autumn has been so beautiful here in Munich. There where the occasional wet and grey days which belong to me to the season like the colourful leaves on the trees but those sunny cold days are just magical. When the sun is standing low and throws the most wonderful shadows and when we go outside, wrapped up in our woolen clothes and wear the sun on our nose.

It was also nice as it was Matilda's first Autumn walking and she could explore all the leaves, chestnuts (oh chestnuts), stones at the river Isar and so much more. It is such a nice feeling when I think about that I show her some things for the very first time, like the feeling of a fresh chestnut in her hands and how soft it feels and how shiny it is or all the colourful leaves and how they fall off from the trees and how you can watch them dropping on a windy day.....It fascinates me all over again as well.
