Fotoeins Friday: making tracks, Hackerbrücke to Hbf (Munich)

From Munich’s Hackerbrücke station looking into the early morning sun, this east-facing view towards the city’s main train station (Hauptbahnhof) reveals a network of overhead power wires and a lattice of intersecting track. The twin towers of the Frauenkirche are a landmark and provide a central anchor for the scene. The Hauptbahnhof is not only symbolic where the city’s past and present clash, but the station is where visitors and residents converge on their way in and out of the city.

I made the above photo on 23 February 2017 with the Canon 6D, 70-300 glass, and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/10, ISO400, and 190-mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie on fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-9T4.

Fotoeins Friday: Red banner, good capital (Berlin)

At Berlin central station, banners hang in the entrance hall to advertise products and services with the promise of the highest quality. The red and the “S” represent the colour and symbol for the Sparkasse brand of savings banks in Germany. I waited until a person dressed in a similar red ascended the escalator to walk underneath the banner (in projection).

I made the above photograph on 8 May 2015 with the Canon EOS6D, 24-105 zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/125-sec, f/8, ISO1000, and 47mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-7PD.

Fotoeins Friday: Track 14B, Berlin Hauptbahnhof

“Mmmmmm, interference fringes …”

Even at 7pm, it’s unusual to see a lack of people in Berlin’s central train station, even at the very northwest corner of the second floor (above ground; 2. OG). The two remaining tracks to the left are 15 and 16, used solely by east-west S-Bahn trains on the city’s “Stadtbahn.”

I made the photo above on 2 May 2015 with the Canon EOS6D, 24-105 L zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/160s, f/11, ISO500, 24mm focal-length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-8Af.

Fotoeins Friday: happy holidays from Berlin

Happy holidays 2015 from Berlin, and the best wishes for 2016!

I made the photo above at the south entrance to Berlin Hauptbahnhof at Washingtonplatz on 27 November 2014 with the Canon EOS6D camera, EF 24-105 L zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/40s, f/4, ISO4000, and 24mm focal length.

My Berlin: intentions and (e)motions

I’ve always loved train stations, and Berlin Hauptbahnhof (main train station) is no exception as these Instagram shots show.

When I’m in Berlin, I go out of the way to spend extra time at the train station to watch people, to observe the flow of people in and out of trains and in and out of the train station. Trains enter and leave, passengers do the same in perpendicular fashion. Individual moments of people on their way are combined with sweeping motions to provide a novel form of urban landscape that’s common to all urban train stations, but with indicators unique to the German capital city.
