My Story

resuimages Photography
I have been photographing art and architecture, people and landscapes for many years. In the meantime, I have a large image database with thousands of images. You can find a small selection here. 
My friend, the Swabian photographer, always says to my pictures: "You only take beautiful pictures!"
Yes, that's true, and I love taking nice pictures.

A R T  &  A R C H I T E C TU R E
In many places you will find art and sights. Attractions are now part of a great worldwide tourism culture. Almost everyone knows the sights like the Eiffel Tower, the Statue of Liberty, the Chinese Wall, the Taj Mahal or the Berlin Wall. But do you know the Angel of the North, or the Bazaar Street in Hampi or the White Temple of Wat Rong Khun? In our photos we do not differentiate between known or unknown sights, near and far.

Can we read faces? Does a face allow us to look inside a person? For us, a portrait shows the diversity of people. Every face is unique. Every person is unique. People differ on the basis of their personality traits, their culture, their tradition and other characteristics. For us, there is no difference between people in Europe, Asia, America or Australia. Our interpersonal relationships always have something to do with ourselves. Therefore it is appropriate for us to always treat people with appreciation and respect. They thank us with kindness and with a portrait, which are the most interesting motive for the photographer. If we succeed in expressing the essence and personality of a person in a portrait, we are more than satisfied.

What is the difference between landscapes in Europe, Asia or America? Do mountains, coastal landscapes, valleys or river landscapes make the difference? If you go through the world with open eyes, you will find a landscape in every place that inspires you and is worth being photographed, with the camera or even with the inner eye. Landscapes show us the beauty and also the vulnerability of nature. If you allow landscapes to take their effect on you and then capture them with your camera, you learn to experience the beauty and fascination. Landscapes in very different regions and countries are my attempt to capture the beauty of the respective natures, as a lasting memory.

The art of photography is your feeling

Experience the world through photography.
We were in Canada with our children years ago. One year later we went hiking in the Bavarian foothills of the Alps. The children then asked us why we went to Canada, because it is just as nice here in Germany.
Beautiful foothills of the Alps at Walchen See, near Kochel am See.
See. Feel. Understand.


Lady Sheep

My model Rosalinde

Rosalinde was born 2011 as a happy sheep in the southwest of Germany. After a happy childhood she became interested in the modeling profession at an early age. On April 8th 2012 she had her first shooting and was immediately thrilled. Since that time she has been available to us as the best sheep model in the world.


Art & Architecture



The Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi is one of the most beautiful mosques in the world.

Dazzlingly white, almost like a mirage, rises the mighty Sheikh Zayed Mosque at the eastern end of the island in the Persian Gulf, which forms the centre of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The mosque, with a total area of more than 72,000 square meters, can hold up to 40,000 people.
The mosque, named after Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nayhan, the former ruler of Abu Dhabi and founder of the United Arab Emirates, is a building of superlatives.

It is the largest mosque in the Emirates, the third largest in the world. It has the largest dome of a mosque and the largest hand-woven carpet in the world. The mosque is also adorned with seven chandeliers made of gilded brass and stainless steel and decorated with thousands of different coloured Swarovski crystals in a flower shape.
The Qibla, the prayer wall with the gilded mihrab niche, is directed towards Mecca. It represents the religious heart of the mosque and bears the 99 names of Allah as marble inlays.
The columned halls are covered with marble. The lighting around the central domed hall gives the muslims a visual comfort and a magical effect.

The mosque is an example of the timelessness of certain Arab and Islamic architectural forms and bridges the gap between traditional and contemporary structures.


Land’s End

Land's End  is the most south-western point of Great Britain and one of the most famous landmarks in the world.

Land's End is located eight miles west of Penzance at the end of the A30, in the village and parish of Sennen.
Since 1066 Land's End has been a private property that the public may use for tourism.
Land's End has enchanted visitors since ancient Greece, when it was called Belerion - the shining land or place of the sun
Land's End has been given many names over the centuries. The oldest known name from 997 seems to be Penwith Steort. Penwith is Cornish for extreme end and Steort is Old English for tail or end. The Middle English name Londeseynde appeared in 1337, and Penn an Wlas, Cornish for end of the country, was first mentioned in 1500.



The wall that separates England from Scotland.

In the first century AD, Rome became a world empire held together by its emperors for almost 500 years. One of its many emperors was Hadrian.
Emperor Hadrian had many famous colossal buildings erected during his reign. In the years 122-130 AD he had a wall of stones built in England against the wild Scots in the north. It served as the northern defence line of the Roman Empire against the Celtic Picts. Emperor Hadrian was of the opinion that if you cannot conquer the Scots, you should at least keep them in check.
The structure still marks the border between England and Scotland. Hadrian's Wall stretched 113 kilometres from today's Newcastle to the Solway Firth.



Idyllic landscape in the Black Forest, surrounded by meadows and forests at almost 1,000 meters above sea level.

The Black Forest lies in the southwest of Germany and is a popular and beautiful holiday area. Lenzkirch is located in the Upper Black Forest, between the well-known attractions of Titisee, Feldberg, Schluchsee and the Wutach Gorge. Lenzkirch is also located on the German Clock Road. Lenzkirch and its suburbs are situated on a slightly undulating, largely open plateau, which offers great views over the Upper Black Forest. A wonderful view of the Titisee can be enjoyed from the observation tower on the high ridge.



People from different countries and cities show their personality.



Flocks of sheep are led from one pasture to the next in the Himalayas, over mountain passes up to 5,000 m above sea level.

Being a shepherd in the Himalayas is no picnic. Wearing simple clothing and often with flip-flops, the shepherds withstand wind, rain and snow. They lead their sheep and goats over very steep terrain from one valley to the next. Again and again their animals fall to death in the extremely inhospitable terrain.
The shepherd from the district of Lahaul and Spiti in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh covers hundreds of kilometres to feed his animals.

Situated in North India, Himachal Pradesh is a mountainous state. Agriculture is one of the most significant industries contributing over 45% of the net state domestic product. Textiles and the burgeoning hydroelectric power export industry are the other sources of income for the state.

Corona Times

Construction workers in Bangkok protect themselves with mouth and nose masks against corona.

In Thailand and many other countries worldwide, people must protect themselves against the corona virus. These workers are helping to build the new Orange Line.
The Bangkok metropolitan region has 16 million inhabitants, of which more than 8 million live in the immediate urban area. The Thai capital is one of the most populous cities in the world. In order to permanently relieve road traffic and create a public transport system for the growing population, the Bangkok Metro (MRT) was opened in 2004 under the supervision of the Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand (MRTA), as the underground system of the Thai capital. The existing metro lines, which are marked with the colours blue (Blue Line) and purple (Purple Line), cover 35 stops on approx. 45 km of track. In addition to the current expansion of the existing lines, another line is now under construction: the MRT Orange Line. In future, this line will supplement the existing MRT network and provide a connection between the eastern suburbs of Bangkok and the city centre of the metropolis.


October Festival

Cannstatter Wasen and the Oktoberfest in Munich are the most famous beer festivals worldwide.

Everyone knows the German Oktoberfest. German folk festivals have a long tradition. The two largest, most beautiful and most famous folk festivals in the world are the Munich Oktoberfest (d'Wiesen) and the Stuttgart Cannstatter Wasen (Wasn).
The Cannstatter Wasen was founded in 1818. More than four million visitors flock to the Cannstatter Wasen every year. The Cannstatter Wasen, a 37-hectare festival site along the Neckar, becomes an intercultural meeting place.
The Oktoberfest in Munich was founded in 1810 and is the oldest folk festival in the world. More than six million visitors from all over the world come to the Munich Oktoberfest every year on the 31-hectare site.
People of different nationalities and generations laugh, sing and celebrate together in a relaxed atmosphere until late in the evening.
The majority of foreign visitors come from the USA 12 %, Switzerland 12 %, Italy 12 %, UK 10%, Austria 8%, Australia 7%, France 4%, Brazil 3%, Canada 2% and the Netherlands 2%.
Both beer festivals are folk festivals of superlatives.
In 2019, for example, the Oktoberfest had a turnover of 1.1 billion euros; 7.3 million litres of beer were drunk; 122,000 sausages, 436,000 roast chickens and 130 oxen were eaten.



Landscapes are also called the total character of a region of the earth (Alexander von Humboldt). We consider the culturally shaped, subjective perception of a landscape as an aesthetic whole. We enjoy any kind of landscape. We hope you do too.


Rohtang Pass

The Rohtang Pass is the oldest and most frequented pass in the Lahaul and Spiti region.

The Rohtang Pass is a mountain pass in northern India, in the interior of the Himalayas on the route of the Manali Leh Highway. It is located in the state of Himachal Pradesh and connects the Beas river valley in the south (Kullu Valley) with that of the Chandra, a headwaters of the Chenab, in the north. The pass reaches a height of 3,978 m above sea level and is located about 50 km northeast of the city of Manali. It is crossed by a road connection, National Highway 21, which is only passable in the summer months and connects Punjab with Ladakh. The pass is both a weather and cultural boundary, separating the rather humid, monsoon-influenced Hindu regions of the Hill and Central Plateau from the Buddhist dominated desert-like high mountain regions of the Himalayas.



Manioc or cassava plays an important role in the economy of Laos. Manioc, also known as "Man Ton" in Laos, is a crucial food crop for smallholder farmers in remote regions due to increasing global demand and supportive government policies.

In 2020, cassava cultivation in Laos covered more than 112,000 hectares and produced about 3,684,744 tonnes of raw cassava.

The leading provinces in cassava production are Xayabury, Salavan, Champasack, Borikhamxay, Xekong, Vientiane, Attapea and Savannakhet.

Despite the importance of manioc to the Lao economy, there are significant challenges, particularly in relation to diseases and pests such as Cassava Witches Broom Disease and whiteflies.
To address these challenges, initiatives such as the Alliance of Biodiversity International and CIAT's Cassava Stem Propagation Centre have been established.

It is also important to know that cassava plantations in Laos cover more than 100,000 hectares and are growing steadily, earning smallholdABOUT ME

Plain of Jars

In northeastern Laos, in Xieng Khouang province, near Phonsavan, there is a vast plain with over 2,100 widely scattered stone jars.
Not much is known about their creators or how the jars were used.
The tubular megalithic stone jars, probably used for burial practices in the Iron Age, give the plain its name. A total of 1,325 large carved stone jars, stone disks (probably used as lids for the jars), gravestones, grave goods, quarries, and production sites are located on slopes and hills around the central plateau. The jars are not only up to three meters high, but they also testify to good craftsmanship. Not only their production, but also their transportation required technical skill to move them from the production sites to the burial grounds.
The stone jars and their associated elements are among the best known cultural evidence of Iron Age people, but little is known about them. The site was created and used in the period between 500 B.C. to 500 A.D. (probably even until 800 A.D.).
On the Plain of Stone Jars, 4 out of 89 fields are currently open to tourists due to the bomb fields that have not yet been cleared.

LAOS BOMBING 1964 to 1973

The Secret War

From 1964 to 1973, the US secret service CIA bombed large parts of Laos, almost unnoticed by world public opinion.
To lay waste to an entire region in a distant neutral country, bypassing the US Parliament, in such a way as to make it the most bombed region in the world, is extraordinarily brazen and unscrupulous.

The American CIA's secret war in Laos is well known to experts. The general public, on the other hand, has at best only heard the country name Laos, a small state beyond the world political headlines in Southeast Asia.
But the war there, denied by Washington for years, is probably unknown to most even more than 50 years after its end.

The CIA's largest military operation involved the creation of an anti-communist militia in conjunction with the warlord Vang Pao, of the Hmong people of Laos. The CIA airline Air America, disguised as a commercial airline, supplied them with weapons, but also transported drugs.
For the fight against Laotian rebels and the Viet Cong's supply route (Ho Chi Minh Trail) running through Laos from the neighbouring Vietnam War, a logistical hub called Long Cheng was built on the Laotian Plain of Jars. The settlement quickly became the second largest city in Laos with an airport: Long Cheng had the most take-offs and landings in all of Indochina, but could not be found on any map.

To this day, Hmong, the descendants of the troops of that time, live hidden in the jungle and have not yet found peace. They were abandoned by the CIA just like the whole country, which is still suffering from the consequences of the area bombardments.

From 1964 to 1973, the USA flew almost 600,000 air strikes; on average, one every eight minutes. A total of 2.1 million tons of bombs and about 270 million bombies (tennis ball-sized cluster munitions with 680 pieces per bomb) were used. Experts assume that about 30% did not explode (UXO = Unexploded Ordnance).

According to the MAG (Mines Advisory Group), the current clearance teams will need about 1,800 years to remove all the ordnance in Laos.



Monsoon Valley was founded in 2001 by wine enthusiast and entrepreneur Chalerm Yoovidhya. His vision was to create a Thai wine culture.

In Baan Khork Chang, a pristine valley 35 km from the sunny beach of Hua Hin, Chalerm Yoovidhya found the ideal place to grow wine in Thailand.

The winery was built on a former elephant enclosure, a sublime place where wild Asian elephants were once domesticated.

Today's flagship winery, Monsoon Valley Vineyard, grows world-renowned grape varieties such as Colombard, Chenin Blanc, Sangiovese, Rondo, Shiraz, Muscat, Dornfelder, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc, which thrive magnificently.

The proximity to the sea gives the vineyards in Hua Hin the advantage of cooler nights and fresh breezes from the hills, while the sandy and clayey soil is enriched with shells and fossils, giving the wines minerality and freshness. The total area under cultivation in Hua Hin is 700 RAI (110 hectares).

The rest of the land is home to many indigenous plants and animals, which Khun Chalerm tries to nurture, as he believes that the balance of nature is the key to making great and unique wines.


River Kwai Bridge

The Bridge over the River Kwai is a world famous epic war movie by David Lean, filmed in 1957.

The Japanese Empire occupied Thailand in World War II in 1942. The Thai government cooperated with the Japanese occupiers and entered the war on the Japanese side. In preparation for the attack on British India, the Japanese generals ordered the construction of a railway from Thailand to Burma.

During the 17-month construction period, from June 1942 to October 1943, a total of 180,000 Asian forced laborers and 60,000 prisoners of war were used to build the bridge.


Wonder of Nature

The honey bee - hardworking bees harvest the nectar on the northern edge of the Black Forest.

It is hard to imagine what a performance the small animals achieve. For 500 g of honey the bees have to make 40,000 flights. They have to travel up to 120,000 km.
During the nectar harvest the bees pollinate countless flowers "on the way". Bees are thus more than honey producers, they are among the most important pollinators for wild and cultivated plants.

Through successful pollination they form the basis for rich harvests in the cultivation of rape, fruit, vegetables and other flowering crops.

Not only agriculture, but also nature, depends on a functioning pollination system. 80% of the plants native to Germany need the honey bee as pollinator. In order to guarantee this, a sufficient number of bee colonies must be available in our cultural landscape.


St. Michael's Mount Causeway

Many legends are associated with St. Michael's Mount, such as those of King Arthur and Joseph of Arimathea, uncle of Jesus.

Like an island from the fairy realm, St. Michael's Mount rises up off the coast of Cornwall, often covered by wafts of mist rising from the sea. At low tide, the beach glitters between the offshore island and the mainland, and where it gets hazy, you think you are crossing the border to another world. At high tide, the island seems inaccessible, although it is only a few hundred metres off the coast of the small town of Marazion and can be easily reached via a raised causeway, as soon as the water has receded in tidal rhythm.

St. Michael's Mount is said to have been the scene of a great battle that King Arthur is said to have fought against a giant.
St. Michael's Mount is said to be the last remnant of the legendary land of Lyonesse, which is said to have extended as far as the Isles of Scilly. Around the mountain, there is said to have been a forest, the remains of which could be found in underwater excavations. This is probably where the old Cornish name for St. Michael's Mount comes from, which means "old rock in the forest".

Joseph of Arimathea, the uncle of Jesus, is said to have landed at St. Michael's Mount when he came to Britain to trade in tin. It is also said that he landed here when he brought the Holy Grail with him.

St. Michael's Mount is the landmark of Cornwall - and yet somehow an insider tip. All too often it is confused with Mont Saint-Michel in France, which is much better known. 


The Killing Fields

The military leader of the Khmer Rouge, Pol Pot, was responsible for the killing of 21% of the Cambodian people.

The genocide in Cambodia was the result of a Khmer Rouge socio-political project based on Mao's communism to create a classless agrarian society.

The Khmer Rouge ruled Cambodia from 17 April 1975 to 7 January 1979, during which time they murdered between 1.6 and 3 million people (21% of the approximately 7.8 million population). Cambodian civilians died through starvation, torture, executions, medical experiments, untreated diseases, forced marches, forced labour and other forms of violence.

The Khmer Rouge ruled a totalitarian state in which citizens had virtually no rights. They abolished civil and political rights, private property, money, religious practices, minority languages and foreign clothing.

The government set up huge prisons where people were imprisoned, tortured and executed. The most notorious of these prisons was S-21 in the capital Phnom Penh, where traitors and their families were kidnapped, photographed, tortured and killed.
Of the approximately 17,000 men, women and children taken to S-21, only about a dozen survived. There were mass graves all over the country, which became known as Killing Fields.

By November 1978, when Vietnam invaded and put an end to Khmer Rouge excesses, millions of Cambodians had died at the hands of the Khmer Rouge.

The Khmer Rouge justified their policies by claiming that the citizens of Cambodia had been corrupted by outside influences, particularly Vietnam and the capitalist West.

The Khmer Rouge referred to people who supported their vision as pure people and persecuted anyone they considered impure.

Within days of taking power, the regime killed thousands of military personnel and forcibly expelled millions of people from the cities, killing anyone who refused or was too slow. They forced citizens into so-called re-education schools, which were essentially places of state propaganda.
The regime forced families to live with other people in order to destroy the family structure.

The Khmer Rouge targeted ethnic minorities, especially Chinese, Vietnamese and Muslim Cham, of whom an estimated 80% were killed. In addition, anyone who was considered an intellectual was killed: Doctors, lawyers, teachers, even people who wore glasses and spoke foreign languages were targeted. 


Death Railway

One of many bridges built by Rōmusha (Japanese for workers) and prisoners of war.

The Siam-Burma Railway, also known as the Death Railway, is a 415 km long railway line between Ban Pong, Thailand, and Thanbyuzayat, Burma. It was built by the Empire of Japan from 1940-1944 to provide troops and weapons for the Burma War of World War II. The railway line completed the rail link between Bangkok, Thailand, and Rangoon, Burma. The construction of the railway line was very difficult.

There were hardly any transport facilities, the workers could not be supplied with basic materials. They received almost no medicine or food. They had no working tools, except basic things like spades and hammers. They worked in the jungle with its heat and humidity under extremely difficult conditions. Bridges and slope protection were built with the help of bamboo and wood.



The Kasbek, third highest mountain in Georgia and place of myths and legends.

The Kasbek or also called Mqinwarzweri (Ice Peak) is the eight highest mountain of the Great Caucasus. The state border between Georgia and Russia runs across its summit. It is located in the middle between the Caspian and Black Seas and is 5,047 m above sea level. At the eastern foot of the Kasbek lies the village of Stepanzminda.

Already in Greek mythology the holy mountain Kasbek was of importance and was mentioned by the ancient tragedians. Since Aeschylus the Kasbek is known as Prometheus mountain. Prometheus, who is called Amiran in Georgian mythology, is said to have been bound to the Kasbek because he stole fire from the gods and passed the light on to the people.

However, this is not the only legendary mention of the Georgian summit. Throughout the centuries, the Kazbek has found its way into the literature of various countries.



Background stories on interesting topics.


Most Europeans never eat manioc. This means that Europeans are missing out. Because it's not just the tuber, but also the leaves that are packed with carbohydrates and protein. Manioc is an important staple food for people around the world. Its starchy tuber is a healthy and nutritious food whose importance is increasing in times of climate change, as the edible plant can withstand both heat and drought. Manioc is the world's eighth largest food crop.

The Killing Fields are places in Cambodia where many people were killed during the rule of the Khmer Rouge, led by Pol Pot. The victims were mainly intellectuals, monks, members of the middle class and political opponents. The death victims were buried in mass graves that can still be seen today. The exact number of victims is unknown, but it is estimated that about 21% of the Cambodian population was killed between 1974 and 1979.

The Isle of Wight is the second most popular island in England and is located near the coast of Hampshire, just a short ferry ride from Portsmouth on the south coast of England. It is known for its quiet, unspoilt villages with quaint English thatched cottages, small towns with small shops and plenty of cafés and restaurants.
Queen Victoria and Prince Albert built their summer residence Osborne House here. Between the island and the English mainland lies the Solent. The Solent is the venue of the Cowes Week sailing regatta, which has been held since 1826. The Cowes Week is held annually in August in Cowes on the Isle of Wight. 



Rajasthan is considered the fascinating land of kings. Impressive, colourful palaces, sand-coloured fortresses and fascinating temples shape the image of the Indian state.
The largest state of India lies in the northwest. It is the contrasts and contrariness that captivate visitors. Rajasthan presents itself on the one hand with rather barren landscapes and wide plains in brown pastel shades, on the other hand with colourful palaces and colourful saris. In addition, the cheerfulness of the people, which spreads everywhere.



Newcastle is located in the north-east of England just before the Scottish border north of the River Tyne, close to the North Sea.
Newcastle upon Tyne has about 282,000 inhabitants and offers something for every taste. Great, impressive bridges, interesting museums and lots of culture.
On the site of today's Newcastle, the Roman fortress Pons Aelii used to stand along Hadrian's Wall. After the 12th century the region developed into an important cultural and economic centre. Coal and woolen materials were already exported from Newcastle in the 13th century, after the 16th century coal became the main export. The later coined phrase "Carry Coals to Newcastle means about as much as the German expression Eulen nach Athen tragen. Until the beginning of the 20th century, shipbuilding was also an important industry. The first factory for the construction of steam locomotives ever, founded by Robert Stephenson, was located in Newcastle.



The south-western corner of England can boast many advantages. Grippingly beautiful coasts, picturesque villages with narrow streets, beautiful gardens, magnificent mansions and unique museums. Germans are familiar with Cornwall through the books and television films of Rosamunde Pilcher. The writer, who was awarded the Officer of the Order of the British Empire, has sold more than 60 million books.
The German TV channel ZDF has made about 120 television films about the author's love stories, on location in Cornwall.
Nobel Prize winner Guglielmo Marconi, pioneer of transatlantic radio telegraphy, succeeded in 1903 in establishing the first public transatlantic communication between the Marconi Wireless Station in Cape Cod, Massachusetts and Poldhu, Cornwall. US President Theodore Roosevelt and the English King Edward VII exchanged friendly greetings. 
North of Bude is one of the world's largest spy listening posts of the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) which intercepts and monitors communications via satellite and submarine cable.
