We had many funny moments, like during the shooting of this picture in Zurich at the @b2_boutique_hotel . And the presence of Virginia always pushes me to take better pictures. I’m already looking forward for new discoveries in 2020. . A big thank goes to my patient friends @goerss .de for showing and driving me around during my stay in Berlin and @chollewa for his guidance in Hannover and other places in the north of Germany. Many thanks as well to @germanytourism , it was amazing to visit Germany for the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus movement. .

Only with this support I’m able to show a very important side of our daily life: the beauty of architecture. . 2019 wasn’t (always ) an easy year for me and I think this counts for most of us.
