About Travel Photography,
Colors of the World.
Manfred is creator of ThisFabTrek.com, travel photography, a travel blog and a photography blog (a journey since 2004). 'I set out to see the colors of the world, always I try to capture the colors'.
Seeing, is understanding, so I report and photograph, but formost enjoy and live those different conceptions of life (all that TV [and the web] cannot give). I reject jealousy, animosity, bigotry. Be free!
The mind, when pondering at night and always asked those questions. What am I doing in corporate wonderland of bank, university, office or church? Who is the other animal asleep deep inside, the thinker, punk, creative, or Indian, vagabond and healer, maybe artist, writer, photographer, traveler, globetrotter? Oh God, dare you to think. When I saw the lies, gambles and manipulations I follow the old dream and set out for the journey of life lived, the journey to see the colors of the world.
During years on the road I have taken the turns as they came along, and realized one thing: Only such a small part of the planet can be explored and such a vast land and sea mass will always remain unknown, to me; many swamps, jungles, deserts and oceans will never be traveled. But then I am father of twin boys, Daniel and David, my most important, and I show them some of the wonders and colors out there. ThisFabTrek, is ongoing. Photography and Journey, Stories from the Road and Life around the World, in Love and Peace.

The Landy in the dunes.
Travelling land inwards from the Atlantik coast. We were looking for
a passage to a piste further south that we had envisioned taking. But
fields of high dunes everywhere and our piste constantly 20km away.
We had the choice to drive back some 100km or bite the bullet and risk
crossing the dunes.
We have done some 20km of dune-crossing that way. The first 2km took
us some 3 hours.
