The BMW four-cylinder

Day 97 of my 365 Photo Challenge.

Today I continued my Photo Challenge with architectural photography. As motives, I took the BMW four-cylinder, also called the BMW tower.

It is the main administration building and landmark of the car manufacturer BMW in Munich. The building is 101 m high and has a diameter of 52.30 meters.

The BMW Tower is one of the most remarkable examples of modern architecture in Munich. It consists of four vertical cylinders arranged next to each other in the shape of a cross, each cylinder being divided horizontally again by retracting the façade above the centre. I was lucky because there were plenty of fast-moving clouds which added this unique atmosphere to the building.

To blur the clouds, I employed a polariser and a 10 Stop ND Filter.

Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

Day 95 of my 365 Photo Challenge.

Day three of my photo trip to Berlin.

Today I visited the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe.

After the news about increased crimes in connection with anti-Semitism in Germany is growing, it was a particular concern of mine to present this Memorial in a unique photo to draw attention to the terrible events in Germany’s past.

Although most protagonists from that time have already died, the past teaches us that History repeats itself, again and again.

That is why it is essential to remember them and to take countermeasures early on.

Because one thing is unforgivable: Making the same mistakes twice!

Staircases of Munich

Day 71 of my 365 Photo Challenge.

Today’s picture was taken in the middle of Munich and portrays the beauty of the staircases here in Munich.

It will probably be one of my next projects when I finish the underground stations in Munich.

I took the picture freehand with a 14-24mm lens. It was not easy to find the right shooting angle. The staircase is frequented by many people since there is a cafe on the top floor of the building.

Most people do not take the beauty of this staircase at all. They use the elevators to visit the cafe, and on the way down they just want to get back to the hustle and bustle of Munich.

Of course, I hope that you can see this beauty!

Deep inside of me, I know that I am a King!

Day 38 of my 365 Photo Challenge.

After the weather was persistently bad, I continued to concentrate on motifs for the exhibition „Proportion“.

For quite some time now, I had a composition of a chess piece and a shadow cast in mind.

Here I also wanted to emphasize the difference in size between the pawns and the king’s shadow.

It was not easy to make the shot. Mainly to work out the outline of the shadow costs me a lot of headaches. But in the end, it was worth it not to give up and finish the shot.

Let me know if you want to know how I created the shot!

Have fun guessing!
