Historic District In The Evening
I thought I share a photo with you because lately I was a bit more silent. I played a lot more guitar than doing anything for my blog. Apart from that, real life kept me busy as well. But if you know me, that’s how I always dealt with my blog. Sometimes I am quiet, and other times I am annoying you with tons of posts per days (laugh). So, I went through my photo library and found the picture above. I shot the photo in November 2016 in the evening. I remember that I did pack my camera into the bag with the goal to practice night photography.
I shot the photo in the historic district of Lübeck near the St. Jakobi church. I found it a bit difficult to take the photo, but not because it was already dark. It was difficult to frame the shot, and to get the angle right. This scene was strange because the street goes upwards, and the houses on the side don’t have straight walls either, you see that if you pay attention to the transitions (lines) from house to house.
Even during editing it confused me, because you can’t use the straighten the image in the vertical if every line in the image is different than the other, if everything is basically crooked. I eventually gave up and uploaded the image without straightening, because hey, old alleys and gothic brick architecture just look crooked and that’s fine.
