My movies and moving pictures: Take a look at some of the best movies of all time ;) These are some of my first practice runs, from Super8 cameras to modern camcorders. These cinematic impressions are from when I got married to my wife Sabine, the birth of our children Thomas and Susanne, and up to our vacation on the Maldives and mountain hikes in the Alps.
