yes, i’ve been to düsseldorf! this is the central building of frank gehry’s neuer zollhof.
some palm trees from düsseldorf, 2018
detail of a train door, düsseldorf, 2017
it’s carnival season and ‘helau!’ is the narrenruf in one of the capitals of carnival in germany – düsseldorf (as opposed to ‘alaaf’ in the even bigger capital of carnival – cologne). this is a window of the haus des karnevals in düsseldorf’s old town. i found it surprisingly austere.
you typically don’t get to notice anything carnivalistic over here in berlin. that’s actually quite okay, though :)
another one from düsseldorf, 2015
from an ice cream parlour in düsseldorf.
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.
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.
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.
if i hadn’t taken this photograph i would never had guessed that this is from düsseldorf again…
if you like lines (i do) this is for you!
this is a as close to an easter egg as it might get here…
