Capital of the week: BONN (TOP5) / BOCHUM (TOP5)

PABUCA Capital of the week is…

BONN

the TOP5 is choosen by Markus (Bochum)

 

Bonn – CULTURE:   Grazil, ästhetisch, modern und zeitlos. Ein wunderbarer Focus auf eine verschwiegene, emotionale Wahrnehung von Kunst.

Bonn – GREY BUILDING?:   Das Bild hat mir die Tür geöffnet zu einem Empfinden von Leichtigkeit, ausgedrückt durch die technische Umsetzung eines Bildes. Obwohl ich ja mehr ein Kind der starken Kontraste bin, regt mich dieses Foto an und motiviert mich auch ‘sowas’ zu machen.

Bonn –  …UNFINISHED:  Traumhaufter Aufbau von Linien und Quadern…   …und dann mittendrin diese perfekte Unordnung ! (Sehr schön die Latten arangiert, Christian! 🙂 )

Bonn –  ON THE RHINE: Die Technik in diesem Bild hat mir gezeigt wie man Räume schafft. Sehr schön wie sich die Richtung auflösst und man als Berachter so ein Teil des Vordergrundes und des Schiffes wird.

Bonn –  RESISTANCE:  ‘Less is more’ kling oft so abgedroschen. Issesabergarnich! Hier haben alle Linien einen Charakter, eine Indivialität. Sie erzählen in aller Stärke und Intensität ihre ganz eigene Geschichte.

PABUCA Capital of the week is…

BOCHUM

the TOP5 is choosen by Christian (Bonn)

Eine schwierige Wahl, denn ich habe bemerkt, wie gut Markus Geschichten erzählen konnte mit seinen Bildern, die ich jetzt jäh auseinander reißen musste. Dennoch hier meine Favoriten.

Bochum – APART: Ein Bild wie ein Gemälde. Dunkle Tönungen verbunden durch Licht. Das Auto wie arrangiert in einer unwirklichen Szenerie. Die Dramaturgie packt mich.

Bochum – DANCE: Gelte ich doch (unberechtigterweise) als unbeirrbarer Verfechter der Schärfe, breche ich gern eine Lanze für den gekonnten Einsatz von Unschärfe. Hier wie ein flüchtiger Moment eingefangen, verstärkt durch den rechtslastigen Bildaufbau. Auch wenn ich weiß, dass der Junge gar nicht tanzt, sprüht das Bild vor Lebendigkeit in Kombination mit einer gewissen Distanz.

Bochum – NEW PROGRAMM: So sieht Minimalismus aus, der nicht kühl und auch in der Aussage puristisch daherkommt, sondern wo jedes Detail von Objekt, Farbe, Schatten und Licht jeweils Kapitel einer kompletten Geschichte ist, der man wie gebannt ohne ein störendes Geräusch lauscht.

Bochum – LONELY: Ein Stillleben was in seiner Einfachheit die Athmosphäre dieses Imbisses projeziert und Kurt gibt ihm den melancholischen Geist.

Bochum – MINE HEAD TOWER: Es ist nicht die Art der Fotografie (Ungedrehte Spiegelung), die mich so fasziniert, sondern wie die Form und Struktur das Leben in den Förderturm haucht. Die Härte der Entwicklung macht es so authentisch. Ein roter Faden an Bochumer Kultur, den Markus durch PABUCA getragen hat und auch sonst gut vermitteln konnte.

Bonn, Bochum, World: WATER

WATER / WASSER

This is our last theme in PABUCA and we would like to thank all participants for their passion for this project with great entries and discussions, all supporters for their likes, links and comments and all silent readers for their interest. PABUCA takes a break for a uncertain time. But don’t delete it from your reader. First it’s time to make something different and we would be proud, when you still go along with us. (Here our reasons in german).

Capital of the week: LOVE

PABUCA Capital of the week is…

Brussels

It seems like the amazing scenery of Brussels is watching a sensitive moment in the public life. City and persons well connected and captured!

Important notice: PABUCA is no contest. PABUCA is a platform for sharing impressions of towns and an incentive to look for it. So “The capital of the week” is no winner of the theme or necessarily the “best shot”. We wouldn’t presume to declare something like that. But it’s an example, which in our subjective opinion unterlines the idea of PABUCA: To illustrate the soul of the city.

Something special in Bonn? Thoughts about Bochum? Some words:

Christian, Bonn:

Dawn: A man told me, that Meike’s sleeping room is on the other side.

Noon: A lazy family sunday on the roof of the “Bundeskunsthalle”.

Dusk: Deadly accident with a taxi of  an eighteen year old boy after the megaevent “Rhein in Flammen” in the Rheinauen.

Markus, Bochum:

PURCHASABLE LOVE     Prostitution and Sex Shops… …I guess in the same amount like in other cities.

HIDDEN LOVE     There are surprisingly many shops which offers kitsch in this area. Anybody deny to like kitsch. No one would ever bought something like this. Strange. But how this shops survive? 🙂

TRUE LOVE     True love led her to Bochum. She needed in deed some time to cope with Bochum…   …but now she developed her own love for this city. 🙂

Indeed, 7:30 is not the time for photographs like many meant, but perhaps it’s time to look around during the daily routine at this time. LOG did it, while he drives his 17-minutes way to work.

Capital of the week: ENTRANCE / EXIT

PABUCA Capital of the week is…

Vienna

by Eleni

 

https://thesunflowerunderthewillowtree.wordpress.com/2015/02/03/pabuca-entranceexit/

Is this an exit or entrance? Or the twilight zone, the so called extrance? Eleni plays funny games with the theme in Vienna, but guides us through interesting aspects of exits and entrances too.

Numbers so well enclosed in Hannover’s daily life. Katharina told us her nice story of baker men, vintage coach travels and a (now and justifiably so) fired and unemployed advertising agent. 😉

“3”   Bermuda Triangle / Bermudadreieck

“8”

“1848”   Not only the 5 3 (my bday btw) in the upper left corner was important for Bochum. As well the 1848, as the year where the VfL Bochum was founded, got a symbolic meaning for the natives here. You can found this number as well on many license plate at cars.

In a very symbolic and poetic way, kiki described the features of walls like overcoming, leaking and reminds us on the ‘walls in our heads’.
