In munich you can find a really extraordinary building: the BMW Welt, created by Coop Himmelb(l)au. I visited it for the first time in 2008, which also was my first year in architectural photography. At the end of 2011 I had the opportunity for a short stopover at the BMW Welt and I used this chance to take some new pictures. I published one of these shots in January. Now I had the time to finish the whole series. Both times I visited the building, I had a very cloudy and foggy weather, which fits perfect to this building. Last week I was again in munich and I saw the building for the first time at sunshine. I also made some pictures, but I don't think that I will publish them. And now enjoy the foggy version:

The Business Tower is the highest building of the city nuremburg and home of the Nürnberger Versicherungsgruppe. I already photographed it about four years ago. Last year I had the feeling to shoot it again, because my attitude to architectural photography totally changed. I visited the building five times since this decision, but there are still missing some views and I will continue working on capturing this tower.
A city seen from above, I don't know which one. Somewhere between Dubai and Germany. Does somebody recognize the city?
Dubai International Airport (DXB) Before my flight back to germany I had a lot of time on the airport. I used it to play around with my Nikon Coolpix 7100.
Nightview on Dubai Marina and Jumeirah Lake Towers from the desert.
An older aerial shot from Frankfurt showing the sunset over the city. Part of my Frankfurt serial. I did not visit Frankfurt this year for some photos, but looking forward to do it!
Next aerial shot. Dubai rising out of the desert, like a Fata Morgana. Finally there will be around 20 aerial shots from Dubai.
