Château La Coste (Part 2)

Continuing last week’s walk, here is art / architecture by Tadao Ando (pictures 1, 2, and 5), Andy Galsworthy (picture 3), Lee Ufan (picture 4), and Renzo Piano.


Unten im Museum





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.
