After a long time away from blogging I participate in Sky Watch Friday

I spent my time on some photo platforms: a bit flickr, instagram on the go, very little G+.

Stuck in the social media

Pile or stack?

After posting this on flickr and instagram and  G+ I'm back here participating in the 52 Photos Project.
Often I just play around on this social media platforms. Just figgering out what I would like to share here. I still love my blog and it is quite some time from the start in January 2010.

Something interesting to read from Emma Davies Photo:
"Blogging is getting more social by the day. Bloggers are turning off comments and moving their engagement over to social media. They are posting micro updates on social platforms where previously they would have put up a blog post.
Why? It’s quick, it’s personal and it’s so much easier than actual blogging. In the word of 2015 – it’s frictionless. Readers on mobiles can engage instantly with you, without having to log in and navigate through comment boxes. You can carry conversations on as easily as sending a text. The world is moving to app-based interaction, away from websites."
What do you think?

Dortmund, Germany

In the city from Dortmund

Our World Tuesday

Some fresh shots from my new walkaround camera, a little Sony DSC-RX-100. I hope it's a good compromise between the Canon DSLR EOS 550D and the smartphone. Right now I'm happy and I plan to take it on our next outdoor trip.

Morning reflections

Dortmund main station, my train is a great projection surface 

Dortmunder U, more posts from the U
The Dortmunder U-Tower is an impressiv building with this big video installation. In Dortmund nothing really is unique, exapt the U.

From Wikipedia: The Dortmund U-Tower is a brewery building in the city of Dortmund, Germany. It was the first skyscraper of Dortmund, built in 1926-1927. The high-rise Union Brewery used this building for the fermentation and storage of their products. In 1994 the brewery and all its surrounding buildings were closed and demolished, only the Dortmund U-Tower was spared due to having landmark status. In January 2008 the Dortmund U-Tower was decided to be redeveloped as a flagship project for the "Ruhr 2010 - Cultural Capital of Europe".
