Since 1999 I have been to Korbach a total of eight times with our drama group to the annual Theaterwoche Korbach (I wrote about it once before). Over the years, this town has grown on me and it saddens me that I’ll probably never go there again.
So I made some time during this last trip, to walk around the town and take in the old-timey buildings around the center of town. Unfortunately, I didn’t have room in my luggage for my camera so these pictures taken with my phone will have to do.
And this one I took just for #VintageTypography-loving M:
Until now, the photographs on this blog have been mostly about documenting my travels. With this post I want to take it into a different direction: photographing with purpose. The theme of this first set of pictures is simply Lines.
I have a few more ideas. We’ll see how this goes.
Last week I got to go on a business trip to London. Naturally, I didn’t get to see much of the city, but there was some time for a walk around Canary Wharf and a boat ride up the Thames to the London Eye.
Departure from Düsseldorf
More from the London Eye tour in parts 2 and 3.
I have recently become fascinated with industrial architecture and complex machinery. A few weeks ago I posted a picture of an old silo in the Düsseldorf Medienhafen on Twitter which I think might become the first in a series of posts. To that end, I spent a little while walking around the industrial part of Düsseldorf-Flingern in the hope of finding similar sights.
The haul from this first trip isn’t quite what I had in mind. Due to inclement weather, I didn’t get to any of the old/abandoned factories in Flingern, which probably would’ve been more interesting. Next time.
When I cam back from Vancouver in February, I was a bit disappointed with the pictures I had brought back from that trip. However, when I went through them again today, I found a few that with some touch-up weren’t half bad.
Here they are; two pieces of classic Vancouver architecture: the Fairmont Hotel…
…and the entrance to the Marine Building. It bothers me that the latter is partially obscured by a tree branch. I should have gotten a better angle.
