Lübeck Cathedral


I’ve been in the old district yesterday as I visited a store to test guitars. And when I am in or near the old district, I often see things that I like to photograph. Yesterday, it was the millpond as we call it in German (Mühlenteich). In the background on the left, you can see the Lübeck Cathedral. In the middle, you see some beautiful villas and on the right, you can see the tower of the St. Aegidien Church. I always like the view you see in the picture but yesterday it looked special because of all the algae … Continue reading Lübeck Cathedral

Church and Moon


Above is a photo that I shot some time ago. I saw the moon beside the St. Petri Church in Lübeck and liked the scene. What I noticed or learned is that sometimes the moon will appear much bigger if there is an object in the foreground. I think same counts if the moon is near the horizon and if I am not wrong it’s called Moon Illusion. I believe lens compression helps too if you shoot with a Tele lens. I shot the photo with my Tamron 70-300mm lens. I have an old post from 2013 where you can … Continue reading Church and Moon

Weekly Photo Challenge: Look Up


Usually when I post photos of churches, it’s not because I am religious, I am actually not, it’s because I find churches interesting from an architectural standpoint. I saw the Look Up Photo Challenge on friday and thought it would be an interesting topic, but I couldn’t participate as a friend from Berlin did visit me over the weekend, and we took some drinks and had a lot of fun. Now it’s sunday and I am alone again, with headache of course, and I thought I do participate a bit delayed. My entry is a photo of the St. Mary’s … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Look Up

St. Jakobi Church in Lübeck


As I mentioned often, we have quite a lot of churches in Lübeck, and other old architecture. As I mentioned too, I am not very religious, but I am still interested in architecture, especially old structures including churches. The church in the photo is called St. Jakobi church and was built in the year 1334. The church has the title “church of the seafarers” since the medieval. Many churches of Lübeck were totally destroyed during the second world war, and most of them had to be reconstructed or repaired afterward, but the St. Jakobi church was not damaged during the … Continue reading St. Jakobi Church in Lübeck

Refurbishment of the Churches


This photo post is inspired by a sentence that a fellow blogger used in one of her posts. I have read a photo post of Taswegian where she said that she saw lots of construction going on in one of the streets she walked through. I commented there that we have a lot of construction in our city Lübeck right now too. Then I remembered that I might even have a photo and found one in my photo folders. You see the photo in this post. On the left side of the photo you see the St. Petri Church and … Continue reading Refurbishment of the Churches

Weekly Photo Challenge: Intricate


The recent Weekly Photo Challenge motto is called Intricate. This will probably make people post some crazy cool photos. It took me some time to find out what I could post, but then I reminded that I visited the St. Mary’s Church in Lübeck a week ago. Some of you know that I am not very religious, but I am very interested in the architecture of churches and I knew that I would find some interesting stuff if I would visit one of our churches in Lübeck. I also wanted to know how well my camera does take pictures handhold … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Intricate
