Come In

Monochromia

Guess what’s behind this portal.

This is the main entrance to the machinery hall of a mining company. The mine was operated from 1899 to 1955. Now, it’s a mining museum and keeps the memory to the operation years alive. They display machines, typical clothing, tools, security and heath facilities as well as habits around mining in the Ruhr area.

More of my images can be seen at my own blog.

Monochrome Madness 4-22

 

First week of a month means, we have a theme for Monochrome Madness: “doors”

I stood in front of this rich decorated old door in October 2012 in Andechs in Bavaria. I also have an image of the closed portal, but I like the open one a bit more. In the post, I mentioned above, you can find a gallery containing both images and much more of the magnificent church.

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at here site on Thursday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.

I’d also encourage you to participate. The conditions are  published in each of her Monochrome Madness posts.

Take care!

Walking through Bavarian villages

600_1264-e_wThis is the last post on Bavaria for now.

In this post I want to show you some impressions from different villages.

You can find rich decorated houses in each village. Not only the craftsmen (i.e. butcher, bakery and so on) paint their houses. Also the village major and the government buildings (i.e. post office, fire brigade) are decorated as well as hotels and common houses. I love it.

As a general rule you can say, the smaller the village, the more decorated house you can see. In bigger cities you can also find some, but less than in smaller villages (as a percentage of  ‘all’ houses). Houses are less uniform in smaller villages.

Maybe you want to take some time to review the past posts until my next post will be online. You can do it easily by clicking on the tag Bavaria in the right sidebar.
