The Hohenzollen Bridge over the River Rhine in Cologne W/Germany .The structure erected from 1907-1911 originally consisted of 2 railway bridges and a road bridge. After 1945 it was rebuilt for the 2 railway bridges which was later supplemented by a 3rd , As a replacement for the missing road bridge pedestrian and cycle paths were attached to the outer rail bridges. It is adjacent to the railway station one of the most important nodes in the German and European rail network. Love locks adorn the safety mesh engraved with couples initials or names . They are locked onto the mesh and then the key is thrown into the Rhine as a token of their love they will keep forever. Lumix DMC-TZ18

progressed from holiday snaps to being serious about it just 3 years ago.I keep a compact camera in my handbag at all times .It is more convenient, an SLR is to heavy and complicated for me. I just like to point and shoot. I do enhance my images slightly with pseudo HDR on a single image. Now I have a hobby and a passion.

  • I don’t suppose it has changed much. Except there are so many beggars now around the Dom.
