This weekend I went on a trip to Heidelberg. Besides a bit of sightseeing, tons of good food, lots of beer and wine I had the exceptional pleasure to visit this magnificent “young lady” (soon to be 94!) in her apartment for 60 years on saturday and sunday.

Arno Fischer is one of the greatest photographers of his generation from the former East Berlin. Visit his >>website<<.

One of the highlights of our trip was the helicopter flight all over Macedonia. Having some of the world best pilots on board, it was a scary but fun high-ride like a never-ending rollercoaster. Enjoy the views from above. All photos: Carolin Weinkopf
