For quite some time I had no idea what to shoot for the monotony theme. There is just too much that is interesting, and taking a picture of a white wall does not really work for me. But then, during a group photowalk, I took all three pictures seen below in less than 4 minutes. Creativity is a weird little thing….
Tough topic, I like so many things. Actually there are only few things I actively dislike, the worst is usually simple ignorance (for both, people and things). So to come to a decision I narrowed it down to
„Things in Frankfurt I love to take photos of again and again and again“
This finally seemed like something I can work with. And really, I came up with some photos:
I love Bokeh…
I love our Skyline…
and I absolutely love Sunsets.
Just a small step for a man….
No, I did not travel to the moon, my PABUCA photos still come from Frankfurt. I randomly chose 3 steps to be showcased this week.
Very small and dangerous when wet! To be found near the Friedensbruecke, directly at the banks of the River Main.
Curved like a model. She guides you the way up to the Floesserbruecke.
100 years old and currently lost in the middle of a construction site, this one still lets you get up to the Deutschherrnbruecke. The Tower on the right is the new European Central Bank.
Autumn is also coming to PABUCA, so I have three pictures for you, without further comment. All taken one Monday evening under the illuminated trees at the riverside.
After a week off the PABUCA project, it feels good to be back. It helped a lot, though, that I was able to find all pictures in my archive. But I will also go out and find new picture for the following weeks, I promise.
WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE
THE GLASS HOUSE
It is still summer out there and time to show some PABUCA summer feelings. One of the favourite places in summer is the river Main, the banks are always crowded with people seeking relaxation.
Of course it is also a perfect spot for working out. Rollerbladers, runners and cyclists are as well frequently seen there.
But the best you can do there is still having a party at one of the big fests and take a ride in the ferris wheel.
Some might have noticed that there is not too much going on here recently. Reason being is that I have destroyed my external hard disk that contained all of my images. I do have a backup but until now I am still struggling with stitching that together and make it work. Lightroom isn’t too supportive there though.
Given that I have improvised a bit for this weeks PABUCA and am showing pictures I just shot monday night, at the Mainfest in Frankfurt. Different techniques lead to diffenent forms and styles. And overall it was a very impressive show.
Just like so often I had planned something else for this PABUCA. I actually wanted to show three diffenent zodiac signs. But when I was looking through the pictures on the memory card, I found these three pictures that were screaming my own zodiac sign. So what else could I do…
Two love padlocks on the bridge Eiserner Steg
Two young swans on the river Main
And the Frankfurt Twin Towers, home of the Deutsche Bank
Not too much interpretation this week. We have more than enough bridges in Frankfurt to fill this PABUCA post:
This time we are starting very close…
… getting a bit more distance…
… and end up far away.
