From a distance – wasn’t there this song by Bette Middler? It’s the core theme of these days, with countries slowly returning to the “new normal” and people trying to find the right balance between staying safe and the necessity of somehow have to carry on with their daily lives.

This photograph of a mother and her child was also taken from a distance. I was standing on the balustrade above the “Liebesinsel” (Island of Love), a small island in the River Pegnitz in Nuremberg’s Old Town.

Blue Hour on the Pegnitz

Blue Hour
Blue Hour  | Nuremberg | 2008

One from the archives – Blue Hour on the Pegnitz River. Visible in the Background is the Hallertorbrücke, the Western exit of the Pegnitz from Nuremberg’s Old Town. The bridge house made out of sand stone was built in 1697 in place of the original wooden bridge constructed 1564.

The photo was taken with 1/3 sec at f/4 and ISO 800. Camera was on a tripod. I forgot to dial the ISO down (what is the sense of having the cam on a tripod and not shooting on lowest native ISO). But somehow I like the noise in the image, so I kept it. It is so much fun to shoot during the blue hour, you should try it!.

Tomorrow is once more a travel day, I’m heading to Detroit for a day and a half of meetings, will be back in Nuremberg Saturday.

Have a nice day!
