These pictures were taken in the mornings of April 8th till 10th – on my way to work again – except for the last one which shows the chair in front of an ice cream parlor in the late afternoon sun. I supposed that in comparison to the last Changing Seasons post the light would not have changed much since we went back do daylight saving time in the end of March. The weather was much nicer though, and with it, the light possibly a little warmer.

This is a contribution for Cardinal Guzman’s ongoing Changing Seasons project, which you should check out if you have the time. It will take you all around the world.

It is so sunny and nice outside that I just could not resist this title. Sorry for that.

So here’s my contribution to Cardinal Guzman’s monthly photo challenge. The pictures were made on March 9, 11 and 12 between 08.15 and 08.45 a.m. Same as in January and February, they show things I find on my way to work, mainly around the parliament of the federal state of Hesse in the heart of the city: My way to work en miniature, some older buildings around the state parliament building, the state parliament itself and two close-ups of a café that used to be a hair salon and still maintains that flavour of the seventies.

A contribution for Cardinal Guzman’s Monthly Photo Challenge: “Find a location near your home, take somewhere between 5-20 photos and post them in a gallery in your blog. Continue to do this every month. For my project I’ve chosen the general area ‘downtown Oslo’, but if you like to, you can choose a more specific area like a park or a building. It doesn’t even have to be a city. If you live on the countryside, there’s probably plenty of locations to choose from nearby: a field with some trees, a beach, a mountain, or just a simple dirt road? It can be whatever. Just keep the project going throughout the year. Try to shoot every month, so that in the end of the year, you’ll have a nice and diverse set of photos in your portfolio. The idea is to capture all the changes: the seasons, the weather, different times of the day, some night photography perhaps?”

The pictures were made earlier this week; after I showed the general setting of one of my favourite places in the corresponding January post, I decided this time to get closer to what fascinates me.

These pictures were taken on my way to work, roughly between 8.15 and 8.30 a.m., on January 12, 13, and 15. They show two of my favourite places: One is just behind the parliament of the federal state of Hesse, with a contemporary facade on one side and some very old structures on the other (I liked the modernist building better these mornings). The other one sports beautiful rows of plane trees and two war memorials, a frumpy obelisk and a wonderfully corroded horse.

I am amazed at how different the light was due to the weather conditions. I also realize that these days, I was lucky to walk to (and from) work during the Magic Hour; I now know why it’s also called Blue Hour. Last, ot least: The red shine on the church towers was gone within seconds!
