Rolf's Sixth Post

Where we live

Today we will have a little walk around the area where my family and myself are living. 

You will see few random shots taken with Nikon F5 and Nikki with FUJI Provia 100F and scanned with Nikon Coolscan 5000 ED and Vuescan. So at first a analog part and then digitalized.

The original slides look much much better and it is really great to view the slides with a projector. So a lot of IQ was lost during the process whereas subjects nearby look better than landscape images.

Our area is the middle part of the so named „Ruhr valley“.  The Ruhr region is one of the largest industrial areas in Germany and many famous companies like Krupp, Thyssen etc . were incorporated here sometimes 100 or 200 years ago.

In the last 30 years the industry changed from steel, coal mining  and  machine-building etc. Today we have more software companies, insurance companies and servicing business.

The environment protection has a significant status. Our local area for example is a part of the water supply for several million people.

Last week I had a little walk with Nikon F5 and Nikki (the weather was surprisingly very good that afternoon) along some grain fields to an old river lock. This lock was built in 1774 during the first industrial progress. Today it is a historical building and of course out of order.

Below the lock and few images  from the local  place around.

Beside the lock you will find few exhibits which will use for the water processing.

This will be my next to last post with Nikki. Tomorrow Nikki will move to Mihai and I’m pretty sure that we will see then a lot of great images from Romania.

Today I have taken few flower images with Nikki which I will (hopefully) PP this evening or night so that I can publish these pics tomorrow.
