One of the most glorious churches in Munich has got to be the Asamkirche (Asam church) built in 1733 – 1746 by the brothers Egid Quirin Asam and Cosmas Damian Asam as their private church. Nestled in between other houses and on a busy shopping street, one could almost walk past. But if you are lucky enough to open the big heavy doors, a Baroque heaven awaits you inside.

On Tuesday I went to the Private View of the “Monsters of Fashion” exhibition at La Gaîté Lyrique, as my friend Niek Pulles was taken part with his amazing Yellow Foamboy. Other designers exhibiting there are Bernhard Wilhem, Walter van Beirendonck, Martin Margiela and Bart Hess among others. Do go and have a look, when you are in Paris next.
Yesterday I came accross this new street art piece by Pedro Delgado. I love the fairytail and childish feel, the light heartedness and mixtures of styles, while being full of colour. Really did like his quote “Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you, if you’re young at heart” and feel this reflects a good and positive start into the new year!
Happy New Year full of exciting opportunities, adventures and open and loving eyes for the unexpected. Time to play with an empty, new and fresh canvas!
Last night I had the pleasure of being invited to Andrew Logan’s Christmas party and sale at his Glasshouse Studio. Artist, Eccentric and best friend of Zandra Rhodes opened his studio, a treasure trove of his quirky, humorous and extravagant sculptures and jewellery full of flair and fantasy. What a treat!

This is my visual ode to Florence, which really has got to be one of the most beautiful cities. Where ever you wander around in this amazing Renaissance city is some little or bigger detail to discover. I had a lovely and inspiring day just getting drifted always with my camera at hand. Hope I could capture some of Florence beauty for you!
