These are some impressions from a day in Bologna, a history-packed city and home of the oldest university in the world.
On the second day of my photography workshop we started another team approach, named the „Pink Umbrella Challenge“. The main subject was – you name it – a pink umbrella. We swarmed out to the city in teams of two or three, each group equipped with an umbrella, some cameras and a lot of creativity.
As last year the first expedition of my VHS workshop on urban photography led us to the Bonn city hall, a block of concrete and glas build in the late 70s. It dominates the Bonn skyline in a rather bulky way and is usually referred to as „hässlich“ (which simply translates into ugly). Anyway it was a perfect start for the weekend and the variety of images the participants of the workshop delivered still amazes me. So here is a first collection. Thanks to all who made this weekend a creative explosion!
The workshop in September is some weeks ago and the next one is already in planning (May 9 & 10). One of the challenges on the second day was to look for artwork in the city and find unusual perspectives. Here are some of the great results.
On Sunday the weather was … dreary, to say it politely. But we made the best out of it and highlighted on the most suitable accessoire for a day like that: umbrellas.
We had a great time on the first day of our photography workshop at the VHS-Bonn. As a first task we went to the Stadthaus, a rather ugly 70s building that is much disputed in local politics. However, we found a number of interesting perspectives. Some of the pics I like most are listed below, with photo credits on the right. I’m looking forward to tomorrow.
