It all started out with a photo job I did a couple of years ago because this building had a bowling alley, or a "Kegelbahn" how a similar sport is called in Germany. Kegeln is pretty close to bowling but with only nine pins, smaller balls, and shorter lanes. It used to be a big thing in Germany in the 60's, 70's and 80's. These days this sport is not en vogue anymore and it seems that mostly older people go these "Kegelbahnen".

Me and my family and friends used to go "Kegeln" back when I was a kid. So that job was kind of a throw back for me and hit me straight in the heart because it was linked to so many great memories.

That's why I started to create another photo series that goes pretty well along with my other work - I'm a big fan of the central perspective, of lines, and, patterns.

It's been a couple of years now that I've been trying to find the most exciting bowling alleys and "Kegelbahnen" in Southern Germany. I usually just call the places, and if they agree that I take some shots I simply grab my equipment, jump on the motorbike and go for it.

I hope you like it.

It's in the basement of a restaurant. I don't know why they put this stuff there but no one ever sat there.
