Some images of the crane-buildings, constructed along the bank of the Rhine in Köln. The huge 17 story buildings are intended to recall the designs of the old harbour cranes that were here before the port area was redeveloped. The buildings are a mix of offices and residential space which, along with the gorgeous river settings, helps ensure that the area is always lively and interesting to explore.
A short set of images taken along the River Thames, mainly following the Thames Path. These were taken to test out a newly acquired 90mm Elmarit-M lens, which despite being more than 20 years old seems to be working amazingly well. The lens is extremely sharp, but lower-contrast than most modern lenses – although this is easily corrected when processing the images.
