trees are made out of wood
from the lido di venezia. i like that the picture was pinned to a pine. the most photogenic tree there is.
from duisburg’s inner harbour.
the title of this post is probably a slightly more poetic rendering than the literal translation of this vintage german verboten-sign.
or trying to avoid it…
this is a vertical panning shot at 1/2 second exposure time. and this is of course san giorgio maggiore in venice.
i’ve published this shot in monochrome already on http://nientedavendere.tumblr.com last week. just in case it looks familiar, that’s why ;-)
until further notice this picture will be called ‘yellow’, too.
from oberhausen, april 2015.
found last weekend in friedrichshain, berlin. the boxers had left already.
on the area of the zollverein coal mine industrial complex (or a bit more concise ‘zeche zollverein’ in german) in essen, ruhr. it’s an impressive area with lots of stuff to photograph, not at least this bauhaus inspired building – the former boiler house of shaft 12. originally built in the 1930s it had its interior converted to a museum in 1997 by norman foster.
and then quite some more of berlin
in the lower left corner the tower of the ‘rotes rathaus‘ (red city hall), on the right a small (but very substantial) part of the fernsehturm at alexanderplatz. in the back left the heizkraftwerk lichterfelde with its three giant chimneys. smack in the middle the postbank tower in kreuzberg. on its right the gasometer in schöneberg and between the gasometer and the tv tower in the far back the ‘steglitzer kreisel‘.
what? oh yes – fisher island: that’s the part with the white high-risers in the middle.
that was fun, maybe we should do this again some time :)
the interior of a chrysler classic car through its windshield. from berlin, friedrichshain.
thanks to the brilliant donald barnat for introducing me to the word ‘sumptuous’.
this is for ashley and richard, makers of the fine blog between scarlett and guest who
seem to definitely share my fascination for manikins and the uncanny valley they are able to lead us into.
ok, this time it’s just about pigeons i promise.
this is again from duisburg and it was of course a lucky shot. i actually wanted to get the lamps pigeonholed into the window frames when the real pigeons suddenly turned up.
the pigeon-hole principle does have a wikipedia article in case you’re interested. this picture though might bear a stronger relation to the application of this principle’s idea in social contexts. so more closer to the definition of pigeonhole2 in the merriam webster.
or was it rusty moss? this is from the landschaftspark nord in duisburg.
a fresh paste-up from berlin moabit.
shortly after the film in the rio filmpalast in munich.
the very graphical stairs of a (defunct) blast furnace in duisburg am rhein. in german a ‘blast furnace’ is called ‘hochofen‘ and it really is quite ‘hoch’.
from a playground in kreuzberg. i liked the reoccurrence of the yellow. and then i got lucky with the dynamics of the lonely player.
a classic subject in street photography: the carrying man.
some excellent street photography (and of course other carrying people) can be found just one click away at https://125tel.wordpress.com/
this was shot in düsseldorf some weeks ago.
(part of) the berlin reichstag in the mirror of a motorcycle made in the gdr. the ‘schwalbe‘.
this time from essen, ruhr.
