Esch – European Capital of Culture

Yesterday, I went to Esch-sur-Alzette, a city of 36.000 inhabitants in Luxembourg, that along with Kaunas and Novi Sad is one of the three Capitals of European Culture 2022. Sadly, it was a very gray and dull day. On the other hand, in a way it fit pretty well with this industrial steel and mining town that underwent a severe structural change in the past decades.

The images shown here were taken on Fuji Instax film with a Lomo camera.

Of course, I took lots of other images with my usual Sony equipment, too.

Walberla

What may look like a very remotely located beer festival on a gray day actually is a very remotely located beer festival on a gray day on Walberla mountain about halfway between Bamberg and Nuremberg in Franconia, Bavaria, May 03. The ‘Walberlafest’ can be traced┬áback to 9th century May celebrations on this site with its stunning view (and its strange name)┬áthat was already populated in the Bronze Age.
