Photographer's Note

Hamburg, Speicherstadt, by the waterfront. Here is a very small part of the huge area filled with similar looking brick warehouses, surrounded by canals, and today used for a number of different modern purposes, including theater, restaurants, the largest maritime museum in the world and much more.
It is a place with a distinct beauty.

From Wikipedia: The Speicherstadt (lit. city of warehouses, meaning warehouse district) in Hamburg, Germany is the largest timber-pile founded warehouse district in the world. It is located in the port of Hamburg—within the HafenCity quarter—and was built from 1883 to 1927.
The district was built as a free zone to transfer goods without paying customs. As of 2009 the district and the surrounding area is under redevelopment.
