Inside the Cologne Triangle

Inside the Cologne Triangle 1

Another one from the Cologne Triangle which I showed you from outside a few months ago.
These pictures were taken from the lounge in the reception area.
I did not know at that time that this building is actually used for some parts of the German TV show Deutschland sucht den Superstar (which is called “Pop Idol” in the UK). They do the casting in one of the top floors.

Here you can see the view you have from its roof.

Rheinauhafen Cologne

Rheinauhafen 1

And yet another one (actually two) from my trip to Cologne. There is a lot to see there as you probably can imagine right now.
This is the Rheinauhafen, an urban regeneration project along the river Rhine.
This used to be a commercial harbour developed during the 1880s.

These are HDR pictures, hope you like them. You should definitely see them in a larger format (just click on them).

Cologne Triangle


Finally time for an HDR capture.
I have been on a short trip to Cologne and while on the first day the weather was atrocious, I was lucky on the second one. Sun with nice clouds, Cologne abounds in interesting subjects anyway.
The building here is called the Triangle. It has a modern, but very nice architecture (which I might show you soon in the next weeks).
I am going to post a black and white version of this one on my flickr page this week. You can check out my photo stream there for alternative shots I post once in a while.

Another thing: I have finally rebuilt my portfolio page!
You can check it out here. (<- Clicky!)

Hope you like it…




Post-processing probably not everybody’s taste, but here you go…


WTC 1995

WTC 1995

I took this picture of the World Trade Center in July (or August) 1995.
Seeing it now and remembering the experience is very strange, even a bit eerie, I must admit.
Don’t forget those who have lost their lives in the tragic event in 2001.

Of course I used a compact camera (Konika BM-201) with film (Kodacolor VR Plus 200) back then.
I decided to leave it as is, i.e. no post-processing of colors or anything like that.

I’ve been away from the blogosphere for quite some time, so to all my friends here – sorry I couldn’t stay in contact or visit your blogs during the last month.
