About me

i live in namibia since eight years, however, originally i m from frankfurt.
namibia is an enchanted land, wonderful but also relentless. sometimes i want to hide from the pitiless blue sky and flee back into green fields and forests and listen to rushing rivers. however the heat and dryness of this country appear strangely reassuring and calming in another way.
we have infinite spaces and deserted places. and if you really pay attention you will find the little wonders of life, like countless gecko species, amazing desertflowers and clowds of butterflies during the rainingseason.

through my photos i try to capture what is valuable to me.

    Oh yeah. I love this city. :)
    Although I go every vacation (so like 4-5 times per year) back home, to Estonia. When I came first here it suprised me totally how few Germans here are. For me Frankfurt isn't really Germany, but like 'Europe'. The people aren't Germans, they are Europeans. :)
    Which is quite nice if you consider what kind of 'cultural' knowledge you can get here.
    So...You like Aferica?
    Have You been after leaving Your hometown back here for vacations or smth?

    So, you're from Frankfurt/Main? :)

    It's on the Havasupai reservation in Arizona on the southwest of the Grand Canyon. Permits are required and it's around a 10 mile hike to the campsite but obviously well worth the trip!

    Hallo Menja, danke für Deine Anmerkung zu meinem Blackhouse-Bild. Schön, dass es Dir gefällt! Du wohnst ja in einem für Europäer zumindest sehr interessanten Land. Kathryn
