Monochrome Madness 3-04

Here we are again with a themed monochrome madness organized by Leanne Cole. The theme is “city”.

We all live in cities. Some in huge cities, others in smaller ones and some in tiny villages. Despite this, the term “city” is not the same for everyone. One might thing of the huge skylines of cities like New York, San Fransisco, Frankfurt, Tokyo, Singapur or Honkong. The next might think of a glass fronts of modern business buildings.

What does city mean for me?  City means lots of people, crowded streets, air pollution, businesses, shopping and many more.

For this challenge I picked an image taken in Frankfurt about 2 years ago. You can see the bank sky scrapers as well, as the old  main police station (from 1729-1930) and the tower of the protestant St. Katherine church (build 1678-1681).

  1. I really like how you composed this shot, especially the diversity of the age of the buildings. I have never been to Frankfort and am surprised at all the skyscrapers. I suppose it must have been heavily bombed during WW2.

    1. Thanks, Carolyn. I’m not native to Frankfort. So, I don’t know about the amount of demolition caused by the bombs during WW2. But, Frankfort city government decided to have a skyline filled with skyscrapers. Frankfort is the only city here, with so many and so large skyscrapers.
      And, you’re right, I also liked to set the skyscrapers of the bank quarter in relation to the tiny people as well as the older buildings.

What do you think?
