some time ago, we visited oldenburg to visit some friends who build a house. after quite some time of bad weather, we all were quite happy to have a sunny weekend. we first explored the city by bike, visiting the place where i used to live as well as both campuses of the university, before returning downtown and doing some shopping. here are some impressions:
posts about oldenburg.
a happy new year to all of you!
for new year’s eve, we traveled to oldenburg. on the way back and forth, we saw some interesting things in osnabrück. finally, on the way to dresden, we saw a historic train of the deutsche reichsbahn in leipzig. here are some impressions.

almost three weeks ago, while being in oldenburg, i visited the schlossgarten. a second time; the last time being around six months before. this time, several flowers started to flourish, turning the park into a colorful place, even though the part of the garden featuring the flowers i photographed last years was still deserted. enjoy some impressions.
well, i took these photos already in september, but i didn’t had time to upload them until now. so, here you’ll find some photos of the schlossgarten in oldenburg.
on monday, before barbecuing, my friend and mine went out another time to fly with his quadcopter. this time, i brought my not so new anymore toy. here’s a small excerpt out of the tons of pictures i took:
its fascinating to see the quality of the pictures, compared to the ones from last time: almost no blurring (mainly because of faster shutter speed), way less noise (which, if happening, is not as disturbing as the resolution is way higher), better zoom, and so on…
today’s weather was beautiful again, as it was yesterday, but today i wasn’t busy mowing the lawn, so i took the chance to cruise around a little with my bike. here are some of the photos i took.
i also drove by by a swimming lake nearby, which i’ve never managed to go to in the last few years.
not that it is time for bathing, at least not for me, i prefer little warmer water :-)
anyway. next time i should make a tour somewhere else, not always the same area.
yesterday i was visiting a friend who built a quadcopter, and we went to a nearby meadow to let it fly. well, i didn’t had a chance to let it fly, i would have probably wrecked it anyway, but my friend spend some time flying with it and could do it pretty good. the quadcopter is equipped with gps and an altimeter and, if in the right mode, tries to keep it’s position, despite the wind. quite cool. it also has a compass to ensure that it’s orientation won’t change unintentionally if you tilt it or fly forwards. anyway, it produces a lot of wind and can fly upwards pretty fast.
maybe i need another new toy… :)
today, i took some photos of the cats. i could stay outside for hours, or whole days, playing with them…
red & white.
they’re not always this nice to each other :)
the red one.
the white one.
sometimes, complaining helps: this morning, it was finally snowing here. after nearly half a year of waiting, i finally got my snow. here are some impressions. the first one is the same place as usual:
some less and more snowy impressions:
this is how the world is supposed to look today:
well, some (usual) tree pictures:
