Escher House, Wetzlar Germany

This house is sunk in between two arched gates on an alley at the upper edge of Old Town Wetzlar. The third figure from the left is an actual window. I have photographed it several times, but on this day, the gentleman leaning out smoking added the necessary element.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide (31mm equivalent). F2.8 @ 1/60th @ ISO 100. Programmed auto.

Minimal processing in Lightroom (added Clarity and Vibrance, Sharpen Landscape preset). Cropped a bit to place the gentleman in a better spot compositionally.

From Germany 2009.

Wall Art: Wetzlar Germany

Downtown Wetzlar has corners where wall art (aka graffiti) is evidently not only tolerated but encouraged…and, by the evidence, some very talented artists. I am never sure about this kind of image: essentially a photograph of someone else’s art…but I think it works here in the grand sweep of the wall.

Sony DSC H50 at 31mm equivalent. F4.5 @ 1/250th @ ISO 100. Programmed auto.

Basic added Vibrance and Clarity, with the Sharpen Landscape preset in Lightroom.
