Photographer's Note

The picture similar to Craig's photo of today and the note will be also similar :).
Before going to Frankfurt (and other towns as well) I checked where to go and I planned my route. I wanted to see and capture beautiful blue hour view of Mainhattan, taken from the bridge or other side of Main. Something like here. I went to the right spot but what to do? The weather was bad, no blue hour, no panorama was seen. But I am not as obsessed like some our friends, who must have blue hour and must take the photo similar (but better) to hundreds shown already before. No panorama? Never mind, I was happy anyway and saw many interesting places less known.
This is the view from the Schirn Kunsthalle. Unexpected is sometimes the best.

The Schirn Kunsthalle is an exhibition hall in Frankfurt, Germany, located in the old city between the Rmer and the Frankfurt Cathedral. The Schirn exhibits both modern and contemporary art. It is the main venue for temporary art exhibitions in Frankfurt. Exhibitions in recent years included retrospectives of Wassily Kandinsky, Marc Chagall, Frida Kahlo, Alberto Giacometti, Bill Viola, and Yves Klein. The Kunsthalle opened in 1986 and is financially supported by the city and the state. Historically, the German term "Schirn" denotes an open-air stall for the sale of goods, and such stalls were located here until the 19th century. The area was destroyed in 1944 during the Second World War and was not redeveloped until the building of the Kunsthalle. As an exhibition venue, the Schirn enjoys national and international renown, which it has attained through independent productions, publications, and exhibition collaborations with museums such as the Centre Pompidou, the Tate Gallery, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Hermitage Museum, or the Museum of Modern Art.

I will upload two more pictures as Workshops.
