As some of you may have noticed I'm a wedding photographer. And for my job (and my own pleasure) I visited Hamburg last weekend to attend a workshop by Steffen Böttcher, also known as Stilpirat. Steffen is a photographer whose pictures are among my top-favourites. I love the unusual perspectives, the silent melancholy and the curiosity that shines through his pictures. If you want to have a look, I can only recommend to visit his blog and delve into his wonderful pictures: www.stilpirat.de
So I spent last weekend in Hamburg. I have to say, the relationship I have with this city was not always easy. Let's say we had a rough start. But last weekend it did its magic and I left in friendship... I now understand what people love about Hamburg. It's a baulky beast, but with a big heart. And I'm not yet done taking pictures of it! :)

This month's wallpaper is for cat-lovers, like me! :) I met this cat in one of the famous "Traboules" of Lyon. Traboules are small passages between houses. Some of them are very dark and small, some are dirty, some are hidden, some are closed, some are secret, some are ostentatious. You can lose yourself for hours in them, a city within the city. If you ever happen to be in Lyon, I can only recommend to explore some of the 40 traboules, that are open for tourists. It's wonderful.
I wish you all a wonderful September, full of positive energy, adventures and explorations!

My picture for August was taken in Lyon, France. I had the pleasure to work in this city for a few weeks some years ago. Since then I have constantly returned to Lyon, because I love this city and it's vibes so much. This picture, with the streets still in the dark while the roofs of the old french houses shining already golden in the morning sun perfectly sums up, what Lyon looked like on my way to work.

Have a warm, golden and happy August ♥
