Chamber of Crafts of Hamburg — Staircase

Chamber of Crafts of Hamburg — Staircase

After I was already in March 2017 in the Chamber of Crafts for a photo session, this time I went with a new lens into the staircases of this office building. The cover picture was taken with 33mm focal length and can be seen in the normal range. Nevertheless, I like the two different color tones in this condensed representation of the two upper floors, the reddish light from the upper floor and the cold light, almost a little thorough light from the floors below. The picture also shows the special features of the pretty railing and the unusual staircase.

At the underground station Elbbrücken

Finally I got the chance to take pictures in the newly opened underground station »Elbbrücken«. Of course for me there is always a central perspective, which I made in this case from the passage to the Skywalk. The Skywalk will connect the two underground and suburban train stations Elbbrücken in the coming years. The suburban train station is currently under construction.

At the northern end of the subway station is the staircase to the Sykwalk with stairs on both sides and a central escalator. The lighting of the sidewalks on the stairs and passages is interesting. The lamps are installed in the handrails and therefore do not dazzle. In addition, the architecture remains quite clear.

Underground Station Elbbrücken

I was able to take this picture at the beautiful blue hour 10 days before the opening of the new underground station in Hamburg. At these days this lighting mood is unfortunately very rare to see, so I was even happier to have been in Hamburg that evening.

The subway station Elbbrücken was designed by the architects von Gerkan, Marg und Partner and is a gem at the end of the growing Hafencity — or at the beginning, when you cross the River Elbe bridges into the Hafencity. That evening I could see the warm light of the lighting reflected in the glass dome of the station. Awesome! I’m looking forward to more pictures that I can take there after the station opened on 12/6/2018.

The hands of the cartwright at work. In the museum of the old cartwright’s workshop in Langenrehm there are also a few trained cartwrights among the many volunteers. All of them have already reached retirement age, but not only the museum visitors but also the other participants learn the tricks of the craftmanship. In addition they can assign the many found tools mostly to the different machines. read more and write a comment …

Old laundry room

The museum cartwright lures with Café Peters with coffee and cake. But I was amazed when I came from the backyard into the building to find a fully functional laundry room! Here the museum laundry is even cleaned with a washing bobbin. In the corner there is an oven for cooking laundry and a washboard. That even here the tools are still complete is wonderful. The colors of the tiles and the wall paint do the rest. read more and write a comment …

Cartwright’s Tools

The open‐air museum on the Kiekeberg has a large number of outposts around it. Besides the museum farm Wennerstorf and the mill museum Moisburg also an old cartwright from the 30’s in Langenrehm belongs to the »inventory«. The cartwrights were responsible for the production of wooden wagon wheels and of course they also produced many other wooden tools. read more and write a comment …
