Have you ever noticed, how when one walks through the streets one barely looks up buildings, but mostly notices what’s on the ground floor and maybe one floor up?
So for this new series I decided to keep pointing my camera up and look what it might spot in places I might normally overlook.
Even at street level it’s an impressive looking structure, symbolizing the power of the steel industry when it was built.
But only when you stop to look up, do you see the most intricate decorations at its top-floor and atop its roof.
Actually, these pictures were taken from a house across the street, because the colorful roof is almost invisible from the street. This is also the reason I couldn’t line up the center of the building itself and the tower in the shot properly. There just wasn’t a window there.
Here’s the ship at the top of the Stahlhof tower right next to two other sailboats in the center of Düsseldorf.
