The Lister Meile is a pedestrian area in Hannover, Germany. It start at the back of the central station and goes on for roughly a kilometer in north-east direction (see here in Google Maps).

What makes it so special is the fact that a lot of it is for pedestrians only. You will find loads of little shops for all kind of things. Venues for coffee and food make it easy to spend a good part of the day there (and a good tasting one!). On Thursdays there is a market that gives you all kind of stuff from fruit and vegetable, over pasta and cheese stand up to flowers and presents. It’s really a nice view to see all the people on the colorful stands, buying stuff, chatting, having a good time.

With this twelve moments I picked one of the market day Thursdays and captured the Lister Meile in the direction from the Lister Platz to the end near the central station (basically from north to south). It was quite easy to get twelve frames on film and really hard to leave a lot of scenes out. I guess you could take hundreds of interesting pictures there.


Lost Campground is the first twelve moments collage. It was taken in Mardorf, Lower Saxony in August 2016. It was one of the hottest summer weekends with over 30 degrees and pure sunshine.

What amazed me most was that the campground was nearly without people. So I took my Seagull A4 6x6 loaded with Ilford Delta 100 and took a walk to picture the vanished caravans. Some of them were simply lonely. But others were really abandoned. It was interesting to see so many empty spaces.
