Black and White Kiel.

This Friday, I went to work and took a little detour through the city to take some photos. The weather was kind of grey so I was is a grey mood, too.

This is a passage that's being renovated. I like how the street as well as the construction rigs reflect in the windows on the left, so it looks more like a bridge.

This is the entrance to the auditorium of the Department of Microbiology of the University of Kiel. The building is rather old, so it looks kind of rotten and falling apart, even more so in black and white. The weathered look combined with the spikes on the gate and the barred windows also add a kind of eerie atmosphere.

This sculpture stands in the garden of the Kiel Museum for Classical Art. I took the photo through the Olloclip Fisheye addition using the Hipstamatic app.

Since I used to serve in the German Navy aboard a submarine, I have a great affection to all things maritime. This sculpture stands near the Cruise Ship Terminal. I think it was set up for the Olympic Games in 1972.

This Lighthouse stands in the parking lot of the Kiel Maritime Museum.To me, lighthouses have a special atmosphere of loneliness and a special connection to the sea. I want to go on vacation in a lighthouse someday :)


  1. Tolle Fotos! Manchmal ist schwarz-weiƟ genau die richtige Wahl!

  2. What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
    The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
