Water Tower

It’s been a while…
I wish I could say it has been a creative break, but the reason was simply life. 😉
Today I have a black and white HDR picture for you. It looks gloomy, but that’s what weather and life have been like recently. However, no use in complaining as it is simply the impermanence of life as we all know it.
Anyways, things will go uphill again (and down and up and so on). 😉
Or as the sage once inscribed on that ring: “This too shall pass.”
The important thing is to have some fun on the way.

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).

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…
