Love the picture, Fons. You took it through a Windows obviously which reduces the optical high fidelity of the wonderful lens as if a fog kind of filter was applied. The effect suits the subject wonderfully. Thank you for opening the February thread!

February 1/28

.Poetry vs. Bureocrats 0:1.

01 02 02017

The beautiful poetic German word "Kindergarten" has found its place in many non German languages. Yet, German bureocrats started to replace this lovely designation by the more technical "Kindertagesstätte". Gosh. Why?

Have not found time and juice to post Monday and Tuesday, sorry for that.

Technical: In this situation terrible purple color fringing appeared on the printed word "Kindertagesstätte". I had to use all defringing NX-D has to offer. Is that the standard of the Neo-Noct? Am I spoiled by the 105?

Beautiful Cows, Fons ;)

Very grey and cold weather. The promised 'warm' weather didn't come...

In four weeks Carnaval will start again....

February 2





Extraordinary mild day almost spring-like in the sun.

Nature responds without hesitation, an Eranthis hyemalis or winteraconite.

Fons. On my daily walk I found fresh buds too. Signs of spring also in the soundscape. Lots of birds singing in the morning

.Phi.

02 02 02017

This is the entrance of the BImA, the Federal Institution for Real Estate management of the German Government. The German Government has a lot of Real Estate, so there is a lot of management to do.

The fence belongs to the building's former use as a historic train station for a local train connecting the agricultural area between Cologne and Bonn with both cities.

Frankly I do not know why the fence is crooked and why it contains the greek symbol Phi so often.

.abandoned bus station.

03 02 02017

Since I was a kid my town is in permanent reconstruction ALL THE TIME!

The bus station has been relocated from the city center to the South of Bonn. I do not think that makes much sense if you want to encourage using the Bus instead of the car and they may after more reconstruction shift the station back to where it is needed most. Currently the city center is one huge construction site. I hope it will be for the better this time!
