This time I picked a photo from my archive, taken a few months ago during our photographers roundtable. I was held in our state capitol. I already sent in another photo taken during that trip for mmc. You can have a look here.
14mm (full frame), f8, ISO 200, shutter speed 1/50s and converted to bw by using MacPhun Tonality Pro.
It’s my contribution to Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness Challenge.

Monochrome Madness 2-02
Todays photo for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness is taken from my visit in Dusseldorf, participating in our monthly photographers roundtable.
I really like these unusual buildings, designed by Frank Gehry. You can find other buildings, designed by him, in many other places all over the world.
Yesterday we have had our monthly photographers roundtable. We met in our state capitol, Düsseldorf and visited the Media Harbour, a former trade and custom harbor. A few years ago, this area was renewed and the premises were then used by media agencies, film companies and advertising agencies. That’s the reason for the name “Media Harbour”. Many new buildings with steel and glass fronts were set up, but some of the old buildings are still in place. You can also find here the Dancing Houses, three buildings made by the famous architect Frank Gehry.
We were gifted by fantastic pre-spring weather. Thus, many people were in the streets enjoying the sun and the warmth.
