a house in cologne ehrenfeld. unfortunately i haven’t found any information on the artist. so if you can help out please do it in the comment section below :)

UPDATE: the mystery is solved! a big thank you to sheffield and the fantastic Mr C – the mural was done by british artist Lucy McLauchlan in 2011.

spiderweb

spiderweb

yes, it’s an actual spiderweb and not something metaphorical this time :)

from the tomás saraceno exhibition in the k21 ständehaus in düsseldorf.
these spiderwebs are actually not the main attraction but a giant steel wire net in three levels about 25 meters above the ground that you can climb into if you don’t have a problem with getting a bit of vertigo… i found it to be a lot of fun.

picture in picture

picture in picturefrom the lido di venezia. i like that the picture was pinned to a pine. the most photogenic tree there is.

art is hard

art is harda 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.

escalation

escalationthis is a detail of the sculpture tiger&turtle – magic mountain by heike mutter and ulrich genth in duisburg. i liked the backdrop a lot.

demotic

or at least not really hieroglyphs… found at waterlooplein station, amsterdam. this is an artwork by dutch artist martijn engelbregt.

night watch

night watchrembrandt’s De compagnie van kapitein Frans Banninck Cocq en luitenant Willem van Ruytenburgh maakt zich gereed om uit te marcheren in the rijksmuseum, amsterdam.

this picture is quite unusual for me because it has people in it. lots of people, even painted people. it won’t happen again soon.

parking lot

parking lot in the skythe anwohnerpark (local residents park) by the office for subversive architecture osa in cologne.

be careful at the edge!

the landschaps-zonneproject by piet slegers, 1979

i pushed the lights a bit so the metal triangle in the foreground gets completely white and looks a bit like been cut-out of the picture.

what a great piece! don’t you think so?  found in naunynstrasse, berlin kreuzberg. i like the weathered look a lot and the palette of this scene made my day.

nature study

naturstudiewhat a great idea! between a lot of (interesting!) ancient roman and greek sculptures suddenly this piece (nature study, 1984) by the great louise bourgeois struck us! hats off to the ny carlsberg glyptotek in copenhagen. we are absolutely thrilled.

and why do i always have to think of henry mancini when i look at this photo? ;)

photography playground (part 2)

some more pictures from my first visit at the om-d photography playground. this time i included some of the exhibits as well as the location. i think all of the pictures have been taken with the om-d and the kit lens (12-50mm). please have a look at the gramophone needle. this was taken at iso6400. i think the quality is quite amazing.

the playground was closed last friday by the way. i hope there will be some similar projects coming.

handbags

handbagsafter (very) little research i found out that this sculpture by berlin-based artist joachim schmettau had been away for restoration (and if you have a look at the wikipedia page linked above you can see why this was good idea) and those were the days when it was put back into its place at altonaer strasse, berlin tiergarten. it’s descriptively adequately called hand mit uhr and was made in 1975.

kugeln

kugeln

this is a detail of a sculpture in berlin tiergarten. it was part of the internationale bauaustellung 1957 and has no name. the artist on the other hand does have a name: hans uhlmann

this was shot with my pentacon six on kodak 400 tmax at most probably f4 with the carl zeiss jena biometar 80mm lens.

kugeln is balls in english.

the tongue

a light installation under a bridge at the end of kaskelstrasse, berlin lichtenberg. i always thought of it as a giant tongue but a passerby planted another interpretation into my head by asking what i thought it was – a tongue or a red blood cell. what do you think? i’m still going with tongue…

(shot with both the m.zuiko 45mm and the panaleica 25mm (and a tripod))
