This month, Paleica at episoden.film challenges us to photograph windows and façades. Here’s a picture that shows both. I always wanted to photograph this storefront fading into the sky…
Architecture is about defining space. Meaning: Giving form to space, giving it human scale, turning it into something you might call a place, maybe even your place… | This is my contribution for Paleica’s Magic Motto in September: Architecture & Design.
Looking up in Düsseldorf (Germany) for the Weekly Photo Challenge.
My entry for Thursday’s Special: Mirroring at Lost in Translation by Paula.
“Unten” (“below”) is the subject of Paleica’s latest photo challenge, and since I am a person who can’t even resist looking down while at a museum, here we go.
Since I experiment with low light conditions, I think that a note on the first picture may be in order: There are two very dark hues in this picture, with a rectangular shape to the right of the light strip: this part is minimally brighter than the rest of the picture (and it seems to become visible if you look at it long enough and/or in a dark room). I had been thinking about increasing the contrast, but then I was fascinated by this kind of minimalism and did not touch it.
The first two pictures show Städel Museum in Frankfurt; the last parts of art installations at Museum Wiesbaden, a small museum valiantly and successfully maintaining its own profile in the face of all the well-known museum in nearby cities like Frankfurt, Darmstadt, and Mainz. I recommend visiting.
“Up there it’s just as nice.” These pictures evolved from the 2/3 series; I now wanted to go for horizontal rhythms rather than vertical. Since we keep looking upwards (nach oben), we get a view of the buildings we usually overlook during our daily business, and this is a contribution for Paleica’s Magic Letters: O.
