Antenna mast

Again and as so often, the interesting aspect of this picture is not the actual motive. This time I liked the reflection of reflections of sunlight in this piece of tech equipment and the facade of another department store. Near Weisser Turm.

Better than nothing

At least they have balconies in their apartments :)

House Art V

Before I started posting my house art pictures on this blog I wasn't aware how many houses are decorated in some way or other. This one is interesting for two reasons: the colourful mosaic, and the old-fashioned typography below it.

Too early for Bratwurst

Nuernberg is also famous for its Bratwürste, roast sausages, and they are typically sold from stalls like this one, but they only open later in the day.

Shadows on the wall of St. Elisabeth, near Weisser Turm.

Composition by accident

Has it not found a nice frame, this late September flower?

Nuernberg, of course, does not have any embassies, but it is large enough for a few consulates. If you're British, you may need this one day, and it's only a few minutes away from the main train station. You will need a map to find it, though. (Badstrasse.)

Speak, friend - and maybe I let you in

Sure, air pollution and the weather have not been kind to this guy, but I don't think he - it? - ever looked inviting. Part of a door frame in Badstrasse, just south of Wöhrder Wiese.

Artsy shot

I just thought this might look good. Part of the Georg Simon Ohm University of Applied Science (yes, that Ohm).

Just in case

Preparations for a bicycle race through the city.

(I'll be on vacation for a while now, so everything you see here in the next two weeks is pre-blogged and auto-published by blogger. I hope you enjoy it nonetheless.)

Run for your life!

Of course this was not planned. ;-)

I don't know who was more surprised, the squirrel or me, but it was sitting there, looking at me for a few seconds - and then remembered that flight has always been the safer choice.

Hand - door bell - ring, please!

A special kind of advertisement for a small, one-garage car repair shop, somewhere north of Wöhrder Wiese (I was a bit lost and forgot to look for street names).

Timber frame

Timber frame buildings are quite common in the countryside, but a rarity in the city - especially if only a part of the house is built that way. The backyard where this one is located looked actually quite lovely. I like this kind of city houses.

Late summer

The bright sunlight is misleading, the days are considerably cooler already, so nobody is sitting in the shadow, and the benches have the view over the pond all to themselves.

I don't know what this curch is called - it is right next to Stadtpark, a small park in the northern part of Nuernberg. I liked the blues and the light.

Living in the city III

In the middle of the city, in between much larger blocks of houses, someone has created a small, almost mediterranean paradise. Möhrlgasse, near Stadtpark.

House Art IV

This one is a more modern piece of art, just around the corner from where I live, near Stadtpark.

House Art III

As you see, we also have dirty houses in Nuremberg, and this is not even far away from the shinier parts of the city.

I think that it belongs to the parish of (a wild guess!) St. Jakob and houses offices or the parish hall or probably both. Near Unschlittplatz / Mohrengasse.

Somewhere between Wöhrder Wiese and Cinecitta, a few weeks ago in charming sunlight.

Not just another job

Yes, this shows what you think it does, an axe separating a hand from whatever it was attached to...

The house where the city's executioner used to live is a museum now. I doubt that this sign is historical, though.

New and old

The do not always go that well together, the many new and the few older houses in the city.
