Fotoeins Friday um Ulm herum: Fischerviertel and the Blau

In Ulm, um Ulm, und um Ulm herum

That’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”.

Ulm is located in southern Germany in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg. Towards the southwest corner of Ulm’s Old Town is the Fishermen’s Quarter with historic buildings including the Schiefes Haus (Leaning House) which is the building in partial shadow at lower-centre. From this vantage on the Blaubrücke (Blau bridge), the Blau river flows through the Fischerviertel on its way to converge with the Danube a mere 130 metres to the southeast; I’ll show the source of the Blau in the fourth and final installment of Ulm photos next week.

I made the photo above on 25 September 2017 with a Canon 6D mark1, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/640-sec, f/16, ISO1000, and 24mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-dBK.

Fotoeins Friday um Ulm herum: medieval Münster & Mauer

In Ulm, um Ulm, und um Ulm herum

That’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”.

Ulm is located in southern Germany in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg. On the other side of the Danube (Donau) river is Neu-Ulm in the state of Bavaria. After a quick ride on the bus and short walk to the river shore on Jahnufer, there’s this great view of Ulm with the central spire of the Münster (cathedral, 1377-1890 AD/CE) at left and the Metzgerturm (butcher’s tower, c. 1350 AD/CE) at right and subsequently incorporated with the Mauer (city wall, c. 1480 AD/CE).

I made the photo above on 25 September 2017 with a Canon 6D mark1, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/16, ISO800, and 45mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-dBs.

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.
