Urban Tales from Hamburg
A Short story with terracotta in black and white
Hamburg, the city of ports. Never seen such a city in my taste, everywhere surrounded with water. Buildings from the age of industrial revolution. Factories, coffee shops, offices, exhibition halls and complex bridge combinations in the city. Although this is a cold city in both meanings the details makes you feel warmer inside. The brick structures and black iron balustrates combines in a way that I can only explain with the word romantic.
It is a beautiful city. The architecture screams to you that it belongs to another era. Strange touches of hipster shops and coffee houses in the corners. Small lights flying aroung in the evening. A magical surrounding. It is almost like an industrial fairytale. The city has a certain character. So close yet not like one of those northern cities where everything is perfect and in order. Here you can read the chaos, confusion, lonely people, immigrants, edgy neighbourhoods, fancy fish diners near the port, the most expensive opera house in the world and tiny hotel rooms.
Hope to come back soon.
