a photographer's view to the world – a traveler's blog
This image is from January 2011. It’s taken on Helgoland. While you’re reading this, I’m on Helgoland again. It’s mid winter here and I’m here with a few friends. Helgoland isn’t faced with snow very often.
Once, these booths were used by fishermen during the lobster season for their seasonal workers to sleep here. Nowadays, you find a bar, an information center, shops and so on.
This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at her 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.
