Munich — Olympic Park from 1972

| 3 IMAGES IN THE BLOGPOST | No Comments

The Olympic Swimming Pool of 1972. The daring architecture fascinates me again and again. The oblique standing post, on which the whole roof construction is suspended. In this infrared photograph, he stands out from the trees, the hall is a little hidden in the white foliage. In front of it lies the Great Olympian Lake, on which pedal boats make their way.

Amtsgericht Varel (II)

Varel — Lower Saxony

| 1 IMAGE IN THE BLOGPOST | No Comments

When I travel for work, I come to many a small town in Lower Saxony. Today, Varel surprised me as a real gem. At the Schloßplatz (!) there is also this beautiful brick building, which appeared to be the district court when I got closer. The hedges and the tree in front of the right wing give a nice contrast to the architecture.

This year (2014), the Schlossplatz is being completely redesigned to become the center of the city again. So unfortunately I could only see the beautiful castle church to the right of where I took the picture from up close and couldn’t do any infrared photography. So I’ll have to go there again later…

Alte Harburger Elbbrücke (XIII)

Old bridge over the river Elbe in Harburg (XIII)

I shot the first infrared photographs of the old bridge in Harburg in 2005 with my former Canon Powershot G3. At that time I havn’t removed the high cut filter, so I had to expose with about 2 seconds.All the trees were slightly blurred by the wind.

Today I was there again, but due to the early hour on the north side of the bridge. There is still a longer section of the bridge ramp, so that a longer headstone path leads straight to the bridge. To my luck, even trees line this section.

An interesting detail I have found in 2014, when I discovered the Hackerbrücke in Munich as a motif. Both bridges were built in the nineties of the 19th century by the Machine Factory Augsburg-Nuremberg (MAN) and are quite similar in the field of metal framework construction. In contrast to the Hackerbrücke, the Harburg Elbbrücke also has the impressive bridge portals.
