Industriekultur – Industrial Heritage, Germany

In October 2010 I did a part of the Industrial Heritage Trail in Germany. I hope you will enjoy the photos.

 Blastfurnaces, gasometers and pithead towers continue to give the Ruhrgebiet its own unique features. They are important witnesses to 750 years of industrial history in the region, and also to the process of structural transformation which has been taking place here for several decades. The disused factory sites – many of which are under a preservation order- are not sites of nostalgia and regret. They have long been transformed into lively industrial venues and attractive centres for cultural and events.

There might  be even a form of sensuality in these pictures. You agree?

steel and autumn leaves
you can see the leaves, chained
to her iron will

    These photos are gorgeous. I enjoy seeing the ‘not usual’ ones. New angles and perspectives always make for more interesting pictures. Your ideas give me hints to try. Thanks
