Photographer's Note

The marzipan capital of the world, Lubeck, is also known as the town of seven spires. Seven pointy towers well visible from a distance seem at first quite similar but to get an orientation in the old town I learned fast the subtle differences. My favourite spire was that of St Jakobi church (consecrated 1334). It has a characteristic four balls in four corners at the base of the spire. This POV includes in the foreground a monument of German poet and playwright, Emanuel von Geibel (1815-1884) who was born in Lubeck.

I considered correcting the perspective here but a slight tilt enhances a bit the feeling that we are all together with the statue looking up at the tower. As you see I am reaching again into my archives. I have uploaded in the past several pictures from Lubeck (CLICK HERE) all of them at the blue hour.
