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

Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument


For the Monument Photo Challenge, I thought there would be no better subject in Lübeck than the Holstentor which is called Holsten Gate in english. I uploaded already a photo of the Holstentor some time ago for the photo challenge with the motto grand. But the gate fits yet again to the new challenge. I could now write a huge story about the Holstentor that is a very old architecture but the article on Wikipedia is very nice and explains it all, in case you are interested in history of Lübeck or history of the Holsten Gate. It was quite … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand


This image is my entry to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand. The gate on the left side of the image is called Holstentor (in english: Holsten Gate) and it is the landmark of the town Lübeck where I live. People who are interested about this beautiful and old architecture, might want to check out the article about the Holsten Gate on Wikipedia. While I know a lot about our landmark, I am actually little bit too lazy to prepare a complex and huge article. But I might hit that topic in the future too as I still have a lot … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand

Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern


The photo above is my contribution to the “Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern“. I took the photo in the St. Marien Church in Lübeck when my me and my mother walked through the Historic Downtown of Lübeck. The church is like most churches in Lübeck pretty huge. I am not so religious but anyway interested in culture and I count the churches of Lübeck to culture and that is why I still like to take photos of them. Because they show what kind of great brick gothic architecture, you can find in my city. Here are two more photos… Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern

Architecture in Lübeck near the Market and Town Hall


That is a photo I made in my hometown, the historic city of Lübeck. You can see typical german brick architecture in the photo. It´s near the town hall and market of Lübeck. There is often plenty of life and not only because it is the market but also because there are many shopping streets around the market. Also you can see behind the architecture on my taken photo that there is a pedestrian zone which is often busy. On the architecture you can see the emblems of the city Lübeck. What you see in the photo is the architectural … Continue reading Architecture in Lübeck near the Market and Town Hall
