City Views #67: Kaiserstrasse III


An admittedly not very exciting view up Mülheim’s Kaiserstrasse – there’s not anything particularly remarkable in this photo, except maybe that the street looks terribly patched up at this point. And again I seem to have unconsciously waited for traffic to clear the road, because it looks unusually quiet!

City Views #66: Kaiserstrasse II


Looking down Mülheim’s Kaiserstrasse – or up, depending on how you see it. The street actually starts in the north at the Kaiserplatz and then goes about 900 meters southwest until it becomes the Werdener Weg. But since the street actually goes somewhat steeply uphill to the southwest, we always say that we go “up there”. From this location you can still see the cluster of large trees at the catholic hospital and thanks to the tele lens even some of the buildings way down at the Kaiserplatz. I took this photo at the end of July of this year – there was just a lull in traffic at that moment, this street is usually extremely busy.

This photo perfectly sums today’s weather up. What else should you expect on a Monday? :-)

City Views #2: The Mousetrap II


The other side of the Mousetrap – you can clearly see how the tunnel got its name!

Old pianos never die…


When I saw the sad, battered piano standing on the sidewalk I couldn’t go by without taking a photo.

Monorose IV


The fourth monochrome rose experiment. The rose looked a little worse for wear in the colour version, so I tried to give it the black-and-white treatment again – and it turned out nice with some slight adjustments.

I might have overdone it a bit with the black-and-white processing here…:-)

Since the weather is already terrible anyway, I might as well try an occasional monochrome experiment…
