University of Wroclaw by Night

Did you ever try to take a night shot without a tripod? First thing you try is to put the camera on something stable to keep it steady. In this case, unfortunately there was nothing stable around. So best thing I could do is to put the cam on the ground and keep it steady with my hand. Obviously that took me a lot of shots to be somewhat pleased with the result. Luckily things changed now that I have my tripod.

On the photo you see the main building of the University of Wroclaw (Uniwersytet Wrocławski). Established in 1702 the University of Wroclaw is one of the oldest higher education institutions in Central Europe.

Tumski Bridge, Wroclaw

Tumski Bridge, Wroclaw

The Tumski Bridge (Most Tumski) in Wroclaw, also called Lovers Bridge or Cathedral Bridge, leads to the Cathedral Area of Wroclaw. The name Lovers Bridge it got from the countless locks on it with which lovers are symboling their love. And the reason for the name Cathedral Bridge you can see in the background of the photo, the two towers of the Wroclaw Cathedral.

Sunset behind the Concert Hall – Frankfurt (Oder)

Sunset behind the Concert Hall - Frankfurt (Oder)The sun going down behind the Concert Hall of Frankfurt (Oder). A building that I’ve never visited but yet seen almost every day when I lived in Słubice and studied in Frankfurt. As you can guess, the shot is taken from the bridge which is connecting Germany and Poland, a bridge I had to use quite often.

Sunset in Frankfurt (Oder)

Sunset in Frankfurt (Oder)It took a while, but here we go, the first real photo from Frankfurt (Oder) on the blog. It’s the town where I studied for my Bachelor Degree. Actually I’m still studying there, but finishing soon so I only have to go there once a month or even less. The photo is taken from the bridge that connects Frankfurt (Oder) and Słubice. Frankfurt (Oder) is right on the way from Berlin to Warsaw, so a lot of cars are passing it. But I never noticed before that evening how many planes are passing the region as well.
