A photo challenge sparks an interest, you go looking for something that might correspond with your idea, abd then the whole thing gathers momentum. Looking for examples of nature’s abundance, I simply could not stop after a while…

Here’s a contribution for Paleica’s Magic Mottos. This month, it is Blüten und Blätter (blossoms and leaves), and I felt like trying to come up with as many interpretations as I could. I began with focusing on nature’s abundance. Then I realized that many of the resulting pictures resembled patterns … or floral decorations that seem to be ubiquitous.

This series is a fragmentary representation of the U3 line (the only circle line in Hamburg). While I had a chance to visit the western stops repeatedly, I never got around to riding the full circle more than once; needing my time to ‘develop an eye’, I did not even photograph every stop. But I am quite sure there will be some more visits.

Hamburg: I always had in mind to get on the Hochbahn, ride one station, get out, photograph, hop on the next train, ride to the next station, make some more pictures…

I never got going until recently. It was interesting to realize how a theme, an interest, a subject evolved: After running up and down a couple of stairs I began to understand what to pay attention to.

Stairs, escalators, handrails cannot be avoided when riding the Hochbahn. They set the mood, define the character…

This series is a rather fragmentary representation of the U3 line – but it might be completed during one of my next visits.
