This was the second time I had seen Hans Zimmer in concert and this time it was in Frankfurt. His friend Lisa Gerrard came in to do her bit for one of the famous Gladiator songs. Man, she can really belt it out. The stage production for these shows is really incredible.

Lee in a Museum

Daily Photo – Lee in a Museum

I was with my friend Lee in some museum in Dusseldorf. I can’t quite remember the name of it, but a lot of it was interactive. Well, interactive is maybe too strong of a word. And maybe so is art. Anyway, this was apparently some kind of display where you can sit down in the chair. I thought it looked very Lee-like, so I asked him to sit down for a quick photo.

Street Party in Berlin

Funny Japanese Video

I love how crazy the Japanese can be! 🙂

A brilliant show from Japan from funny

Daily Photo – Street Party in Berlin

Wow, Germans really know how to party! This party went on all day and into the night. I have no idea what drugs everybody was on, but they certainly seemed to be having an amazing time. It’s great to see so many happy people out and about, enjoying the day. They must have been good drugs because everyone was super happy and I didn’t see any arguments or fights or anything!

Relaxing in Wolfsburg

Speaking of Cars

I saw this crazy car on Reddit. I read through the comments and apparently it’s street legal!

Daily Photo – Relaxing in Wolfsburg

You wouldn’t think that staring out at a huge industrial plant would make for an interesting view, but you would be wrong. You’d especially be wrong if you were a car enthusiast. This is a famous plant for Volkswagen and a ton of people make a pilgrimage here every year to bask in all that is Volkswagen.

Street Party in Germany

College Behind Bars

There is a new great documentary that you can stream live from PBS called College Behind Bars. I first heard about it on a Sam Harris podcast.

Daily Photo – Street Party in Germany

There is a semi-regular street party in Berlin with all sorts of awesome people. They dress up in many different outfits and costumes, so it’s quite the panacea for photographers. People are also extremely extroverted there, a lot like Burning Man, so nobody really complains when you take their photo. Besides all that, there’s lots of dancing, performances, music, and pretty much anything you can think of!

Hans Zimmer in Concert

Here’s something you may not have expected

I’ve been working on some fractal math… I suppose many of my followers know that my major was in computer science and math, so I’ve been working on some intense stuff lately now that I understand more about the fabric of reality. I’ll post this to r/DMT as well.

Music is by Shpongle – “Brain in a Fish Tank”

The compression on YouTube is not that great… now generating a 4K version now for Vimeo.

Daily Photo – Hans Zimmer in Concert

While in Frankfurt, we went to go see Hans Zimmer in concert. It was a rather special concert because it was for his birthday, and, even more, this is where Hans was born! People were going absolute apeshit when he came out on stage. Here he is with his old friend Trevor Horn. They got their start together decades ago as The Buggles.

The Bar at the Ritz-Carlton Berlin

Berlin

Here is a little video we put together from my last visit to Berlin.

Daily Photo – The Bar at the Ritz-Carlton Berlin

Here’s a shot of the rather amazing bar on the ground level of the Ritz-Carlton in Berlin. It’s based on different fragrances, and this is the scene you see as you walk in. My little tip for shooting places like these are to get in there about half an hour before they open so you can get all the photos you want… I try not to take pictures of guests, as that can be kind of a touchy subject.

Inside the Cologne Cathedral

Hilarious video with terrible voice acting

Look at these “highlights” – haha I could not stop laughing.

Daily Photo – Inside the Cologne Cathedral

I was so surprised to walk into this cathedral at night and see this! They were showing images from deep space and playing all this crazy minimalist music… something like Phillip Glass. I sat in here for about half an hour just kind of staring at this giant movie screen. It’s definitely one of my best church experiences! 🙂

Tina Guo on Stage

Who is Tina Guo

She’s a kick-ass cellist and an awesome person, as you can see in this video:

Daily Photo – Tina Guo on Stage

Haha… I usually don’t take photos like this… it’s quite hyper-sexualized, if you didn’t notice. I’m actually friends with her and I took photos of her and Hans Zimmer and the rest of the band at two of their concerts. I wasn’t so sure about sharing THIS particular photo. I liked it a lot… but, well you know how people can be super-judgy. I didn’t care about them – mostly Tina. Well, it turned out that she LOVED it and re-shared it on her account. So, that made me feel a lot better and a bit silly about having so much self-doubt!

Watch Hans on Netflix!

I’ll go ahead and assume you have a Netflix account. Anyway, go do a search for Hans Zimmer Live and get ready for an amazing show! Best watched Super Loud and with a beverage of your choice!

Daily Photo – Hans Zimmer in Concert!

I was lucky enough to see my friend Hans perform twice in Europe. Once was in Hungary and the other time was in Germany. Both concerts had a lot of similarities, but I was surprised how much Hans ad-libbed a lot of the stuff he was saying between each song. He was especially popular in his hometown of Frankfurt where the fans went absolutely nuts.

I ended up with about 50 (or so) good photos of the two concerts and made a special book just for him and his crew.
