Hi, my name is Hans. I am based in Munich, Bavaria. In my professional life, I am a product manager for IT conferences, publications, and e‑learnings.

My site is a collection of some favorite snaps I took during weekend outings and while traveling. Its name is inspired by the paparazzo-like pursuits that some tourists venture on when visiting Kyoto’s geisha quarters.

Another passion of mine is restoring and riding vintage bicycles. I use them for my daily commute and a couple more short-haul routes. These oldies remind me of the days when cycling was my primary way of getting around. Fortunately, my better half Birgit shares most of my interests. Well, her bike collection is not up to outshine mine yet…


If you have any suggestions, questions or other feedback, I would love to hear from you by e-mail.
