Fotoeins Friday um Ulm herum: Einsteinbrunnen

In Ulm, um Ulm, und um Ulm herum

It’s a well-known “Zungenbrecher” (literally, “tongue breaker” or tongue-twister) which translates as “In (the city of) Ulm, around Ulm, and round about Ulm”. Located in southern Germany in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg, Ulm is where Albert Einstein was born on 14 March 1879.

Next to the Amtsgericht (Magistrates’ Court) is the Einsteinbrunnen or Einstein fountain, a bronze sculpture made by Jürgen Goertz in 1984. The sculpture consists of three parts: a rocket body representing technological advancement hurtling into space with the threat of annihilation by atomic weapons; a snail shell representing nature and wisdom regarding the judgement and control of technology; and Einstein’s head with a mischievous cheeky expression with big eyes and tongue stuck out.

I made the photo above on 24 September 2017 with a Canon 6D mark1, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/320-sec, f/8, ISO2000, and 24mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-dBg.
