I wanted to come up with a small series of pictures done differently. During a recent afternoon photo walk along Hamburg harbour I took my small Manfrotto table tripod (Pixi Mini) with me. It is only 20 cm high and gives a stable, but very low perspective. Every image below is done from this tripod slightly above street level and shoot with the Canon EF 16-35 mm wide angle. I really like this different approach of an area that I shot many times before. Since we had the typical December weather (not too cold but cloudy and wet) I decided to go black and white. My walk took me from St. Pauli Landungsbrücken all the way to the architectural landmark of Docklands. This is by far my favorite photo walk in Hamburg harbour. Feel free to comment on this series. I am very interested in your feedback. Enjoy my view of Hamburg from below!
