Griffith Observatory – Travel Photography

The Observatory must be one of my favourite places on the planet. If I had one wish to choose a place to live, this might be it. Overlooking the vast expanse of Los Angeles, the wonderful Architecture and Griffith Park surrounding it. So here are two older and one new photo from my most recent trip to LA. The two old ones I reedited, as I really did not like the the old editing anymore. Also, as you might have seen, you only see LA and not the Observatory, but it was shot from there. So ok, a couple of…

Mercedes-Benz Instagram Shootout NYC / LA

MBShootout NYC / LA The Mercedes-Benz Instagram Shootout in New York and Los Angeles was a fantastic experience, it was the longest of all the Shootouts so far and took place in two cities. New York City and Los Angeles. Our New York Team consisted of Mario-Roman Lambrecht, Joseph Linaschke, our local Andrew Link and me. In LA it was Mario, Joseph and me again plus our locals Royce Rumsey, Richard Thompson and Zach Benge. I cannot say it often enough how honored and thankful I am to have worked with this extremely talented and kind group of people. What…

#mbrt13 – Instax invasion

Here a very candid collection of all the Fuji Instax shots of our trip. Still my favorite camera system at the moment!!! Hope you’ll enjoy these as much as I do. Oh and the order might be a bit off 🙂

#mbrt13 – the end is nigh

It’s nigh, but not here yet. We finish our digital stills journey today with a huge post. 52 photos. There is still a bit more to come though. We have a whole bunch of wonderful Fuji Instax scans coming up, as the Video I am still editing! After that though I promise at least one non-car photo post. And a glorious one for sure. I hope you will enjoy this post as you did the ones before and in case you missed them follow this link the previous posts. Cheerio and have a great weekend, Teymur.

#mbrt13 – wherever I may roam

What is it that pulls people like us out on the street and actually lets us enjoy a trip like this?! Why do I love being on the road? Sitting in the car for hours, devouring asphalt like a maniac. To be honest… NO IDEA! The thing I know is that I enjoy it. Listening to music, local news, meet people along the way, be it a travelling antiques dealer or a pissed of hillbilly trucker at a taco bell. Changing scenery, when you pull to the side of the road for photo, coffee or even a snack. I am…

#mbrt13 – the eagle has landed

#mbrt13, a hashtag for an idea that sprung from one mans head and developed into a project for twelve. In a very short period of time the plans for a fantastic road trip were made and what felt like an blink of an eye we had our plane tickets, roadmap and itinerary. An international crew going from Los Angeles (or actually Carlsbad) all the way to Detroit. I know, it doesn’t sound too hardcore, but if you have to make it in a bit less then 5 days it becomes a challenge. With our internal title “Guarding the E-Class” we…

#mbrt13 – rollin rollin rollin

It is our third day and we are on the Interstate 40 towards Amarillo as I am writing this post. I wanted to post way before this post, but we have been quite busy and get less sleep than anticipated, so the time that I am awake after driving the legs of our road trip I mostly use for importing and backing up all the footage. If you want to stay completely up to date you should check my Twitter, Flickr and YouTube channel as I post to those daily and from the road. Our connectivity is not always given,…

Bjoern, Heike, Jan and Jens. If you out…
