low flying pigeons

As always, if you have questions, objections, worries or praise, and especially if you found your picture and want it removed, feel free to contact me. I will get back to you as soon as possible. You can also read my full disclaimer, if you are interested.

 

This is going to be a long post. Normally I would make two posts out of this one, but if I do that I’ll never get to some more recent pictures. These pictures were taken on the same day as the pictures from Neuss yesterday. I was on my way to Cologne when I missed the train and had half an hour to kill in Neuss. The result was yesterday’s post. Later that day in Cologne I walked through the city centre for a bit and as you can see I shot a ton of pictures there as well.

All pictures taken with: Olympus Pen E-PL3 and Panasonic Lumix 20mm f/1.7 ASPH.

The shopping area of Cologne is a dangerous place … low flying pigeons all around!

As I said, low flying. Sometimes you need to pay attention where you tread.

They look happy as well. Not.

I wasn’t sure why the guy had this stick …

… until he started poking around in the rubbish with it. One of the many German bottle collectors. Mr Cow is not impressed that there are people in Germany who have to poke around in the rubbish to make a living. Me neither.

As you can see, kids care for homeless people. Adults usually don’t.

In case you didn’t know: I have long legs. Especially when the sun is low.

And now for something completely different …

I walked through a park in Cologne West after seeing a wonderful August Sander exhibition. I love his work and I even got to see the cameras he was using. Massive wooden large format cameras. And I complain that my Zorki is heavy …!
