Throwback Thursday: One night in Frankfurt

Don’t wonder about the high ISO: Because of extreme strong wind that night, I wasn’t able to mount my camera on the tripod. So, I needed to use the guard railing for the camera and hold it tight.



APS-C, 10mm, ISO 3200, f7.1, 1/30 sec

mm13-600_4273-eb_wToday, I’m taking you out to another visit in Cuba. Here we have the skyline of Havana right over the bahia at sunset. I think of my visit quite often. It was a very pleasant time. I’ve had many posts on that trip here in my blog. You can find them by using the tag cuba.

While writing this post, we have had a hot day (+27°C). That reminded me to that wonderful trip to Cuba. Although, it’s less hot here than on Cuba, it’s more uncomfortable here because of the high moisture. During the last weeks we have had so much rain. Many houses and streets got over-flooded. Strawberries are rotting in the fields. June was a complete fail when speaking about this summer until now. May was fine, but June was too wet. We often have had more liters of rain during a single rainstorm than usually during a complete average month! We even have a temperatures around 12-15°C. (we often have these temperatures during winter).
I hope, summer will finally come one day – hopefully very soon!

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at here site, to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers.

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).
