Old yellow car on Route 66 in Seligman, Arizona/USA

Hot wheels – When my NIKON goes nuts

Old cars are one of the coolest things. Don’t get me wrong, I do like and prefer to drive in a new, modern and comfortable car. But only for the fact that I know next to nothing about how to maintain an old-timer. And to own an old car like this, you better also own the Bank of America.
An old car has what a new car is missing: character. I’m not talking about a 7-year-old
American GM or Ford, not about a 10-year-old European BMW, Fiat, Peugeot, Saab,
Mercedes or Volkswagen and certainly not about a 15-year-old Asian “rice cooker”
like a Honda, Nissan or Toyota. I’m talking about the vintage cars, built between around
1919 and 1930, in the “Vintage era”. Or even those from the 50′, like the ’57 Chevrolet or
the “Thunderbird”, a Camaro, Mustang or Corvette from the ’60s or even a Dodge or
Porsche 911 from the ’70s. You can’t ignore these beautiful cars, 
especially not when you are a photographer. You don’t need to be a collector of old cars to
appreciate these beauties. If you stop and take a good look at them,
they will take you back to the time where they still were considered “hot wheels”. 
And they will tell you a few stories about the "good old times". The ones in showrooms are great of
course, always perfectly restored and maintained. And so are the ones still participating in these “Old-timer Rallyes”, driven by their owners once or twice a year. But the ones I love the most are those you can still find all over the country, in farmer’s sheds with inches of dust on it or
just “parked” for years somewhere along the road in a little village. When I see one of these
"hot wheels from yesterday" my Nikon spins out of control and goes nuts.

Mille Miglia – Most beautiful race in the world

Sansepolcro/Italy (2018) – Just as I was about to walk through an ancient arch of the fortified city walls into the historic old town of Sansepolcro in the southeast of Tuscany, bordering Umbria and Marche, the sound of loud howling engines suddenly grabbed my attention. I knew this sound, this had to be a Ferrari. Indeed there it was one of Enzo's treasures from Maranello, hovering down the alley in all its beauty, red, shiny and roaring. And there was another one coming and another one, followed by a Maserati and a Jaguar, an old Lancia, a Porsche, a vintage Mercedes, and an ancient MG.
