Öresund bridge is connecting the capital of Denmark Copenhagen and Malmö – the Swedish city. Øresund is the longest combined rail and road bridge of Europe, but this is only one of the interesting facts about it.
Lisbon delicacies always test the health of our bodies – in particular, our liver. With so many quality bottles of wine and cheese, it’s very difficult to survive just even a day, without trying one of these or better yet – the duo combination…
Have you ever wondered what MAAT is and what it stands for? This is an abbreviation of the Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology. The purpose of this modern building is to be a space for international dialogue, critical thinking and debate. Located on the coast of Lisbon in Belem, it is easy to reach and is a must-see!
The stone part of Krämerbrücke was built in 1325 but the houses located there have continuously been inhabited during the past 500 years – longer than any other bridge in Europe! If not for the modern outfits of passers-by, you could actually feel a little like you are still living in traditional medieval German city.
The Helix Bridge in Singapore; a design inspired by human DNA. This was something very difficult for me to imagine, even before I had actually seen it. This connection of science and architecture stunned me, and I felt that I would not be able to return to Berlin without capturing this rare composition.
The 25 de Abril Bridge connects the city of Lisbon with the municipalities of Almada. It is the 32nd largest suspended bridge in the world. During the day, you will see that it appears as a dark red colour and it reminded me so much of the Golden Bridge in San Francisco. Just behind 25 de Abril Bridge in the municipality of Almada stands a statue of Jesus Christ – as its name emphasises – “Sanctuary of Christ The King”.
The Ponte Vecchio “The Old Bridge” replaced the Roman Stone Bridge of Florence in 1345. Today it is impossible to be in Florence and not pass by it on foot, enjoying the marvellous jewellery shops that have situated on Ponte Vecchio for centuries. It is also one of the most interesting bridges that I have ever seen because of its construction and the history it carries.
There is always a place like this for everyone in different parts of the world… I realised that the ‘place’ for Daria and I is Venice, particularly when I stood with my tripod trying to capture the sunset over Rialto Bridge.
Exhausted, but still in the best of moods after photographing London, we sat on a bench on the bank of the Thames and enjoyed the moment. There weren’t any pedestrians yet, so everything seemed so peaceful… For a moment, I realised that this would be a great composition, to capture The Shard under the Millennium Bridge. Unbeknownst to us, we were following the famous “Quins walk” in a big part of our route, to capture the greatest London landmarks.
Papiermolensluis is a stone bridge over one of the canals. It is probably one of the most photographed landmarks, due to the composition of the houses as you can see in the background and the canal in the foreground are perfectly depicting the “atmosphere” and the architecture of Amsterdam. Back in time, on the corner house of Brouwergracht, was a hanging sign “De Papiermolen” – paper handler. The bridge was called Papiermolensluis because you can see this sign of the shop from the bridge.
