Köln in December

In Cologne is always something to do.

Our visit lead us to the Triangle, the 8th highest building in Cologne, with a magnificant view from 100 meter high  at the ‚altdstadt‘

The Hohenzollernbrücke is known about its many ‚love slots‘ that are chained at the bridge. The loving couples, in tradition, throw the keys in the Rhine.  And what is left … is love.

Visiting Colgne in December makes a visit at the christmas markets (and the mulled wine) obligatory!

Cologne.  Kölle.  Simply a wonderful city.

Die Flora – Köln

In the middle of Cologne, a beautiful park is resided, die Flora.  A botanic garden and park.  After our visit in the japanese garden in Leverkusen, we went to Cologne.

And did not regret it, enjoy the photos.

Very much flowers,

and many flower seemed to have its own visitors


And … the rest


Street photography -and more- in Cologne

Who reads my (b)logs regurarily knows my special intrest for Street Photography

And what is the best way to photograph people, situations and scenes ‚from the street‘?
Indeed, the big city.


Together with my photofriends Hilde and Wännä we had an afternoon photo shooting in Cologne.

And of course, next to the street photography, a visit to the Dom is a MUST,, also there are some pictures taken as well.

Dom 0475

On this tour I tried out a new camera lense, the Tamron 18- 270. A travel lense, it is called. The big advantage is that I not need(ed) to change lenses between a nearby photo and a zoom/remote picture.

I think that I can become good friends with my new baby,  you will see more photos made with it in the (near) future.

Enjoy the pictures!
