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.

While some German christmas markets have been called off last-minute due to the the spiralling Covid-19 infection rate, Frankfurt’s traditional christmas market was opened Nov.22, 2021. Hot alcoholic beverages such as mulled wine and hot apple wine (a Frankfurt specialty), baked marzipan mixes like Brenten and Bethmännchen and Quetschemännchen (figures made out of prunes and nuts) are sold among lots of other things. The event’s history has been traced back to the 14th century.
