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.

Quite a classic subject, so I wanted to show it in another way.
Best viewed large (click on picture and press L when you see it in flickr).
