The pictures have been taken at the end of May, during a photo night-walk near the Bayerische Staatsoper. On the left side you can see a building called by some people „Alte Post“. Indeed, many many years ago the building have been used by the Deutsche Post itself. The atmosphere was strange, because of the less people on the street … maybe because of Corona pandemic.
It was one of the first really sunny days short before spring, when I was in the Pre-Bavarian Alps. It was a heavy tour with approx. 1.400 meter up. When I arrived the top of the plateau of the mountain, I saw a small mountain hut. It was not farmed, because of the SAR-COV-2 (Corona) virus. But the wreath at the door was mostly fresh. Sometimes the details are quit nice.
As I mentioned in one of my previous article, I was in Munich on that day. It was on my way from the Residenz to the „Englischer Garten“, along the Marstall theatre. It seems, it is one of the backdoors to the Marstall theatre. Hopefully the fire-brigade will find this door in the night, when it is dark and when they are in a hurry …
After really hard weeks in my job, I decided on Sunday spontaneously, to go to Munich down-town and go for a walk from the Marienplatz to the „Englischer Garten“.
It was a wonderful day, and crowds where in down-town to enjoy the sun. Well, temperatures like in spring, a blue sky and it was so lovely warm. Just to remember: it was the day before the horrible storm „Sabine“.
Near the „Residenz“, I saw the roofed connection way and I was impressed by the geometry of the frames. But, with the walking couple, that walked hand in hand, it is not only a picture with a nice geometry view, it is a photo with emotions.
Snow felled down overnight and thin layers of snow formed several areas in the cooler places in Munich. Especially at the river Isar it looked very winterly. Before I walked towards the old heating plant, I took a picture of one of the buildings of the Deutsches Museum.
This picture has been in Munich in Winter 2020 – well, it wasn’t a real winter. It was more than in autum: rain and sunshine, but colder than in summer. I thought, the the shutter time was short enough, that the rain is not visible on the picture – well I was wrong.
Aim was, to take a picture of the three windows and the 2 doors. Unfortunatelly, the small lorry – the transporter for the beer – was in in front of the building. It was clear, that the small lorry is about to leave … soon. Well, after 10 minutes, the man in the lorry spent his time to do some conversation over the smartphone. Additional 10 minutes later, the same situation. After 30 Minutes, the lady by my side got a nervous. So, I took the picture – and finally I think it is the better composing.
An interesting house. It is very nicely tiled and the tiles are also in a very good condition, although they have fallen off here and there. However, the shutter is then unfortunately already broken. Nevertheless an interesting house.
An old house at the port in Lisbon, where I saw this strange window shutter. It looks like it’s broken. However, it appears the shutter is supposed to be.
Even the street signs in Portugal, here a house in Lisbon, are wonderfully designed.
