Stolberg 🇩🇪

Stolberg is a town in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It has a long history as an industrial town and belongs to the district Aachen and the lower district court of Eschweiler.

I went to Stolberg on a beautiful sunny day, riding my electric scooter, eager to see some tanks and Burg Stolberg. Unfortunately, the tanks were in muddy, swampy terrain, so I only ended up exploring Burg Stolberg and visiting the Zinkhütter Hof museum. Despite that, it turned out to be a successful and enjoyable day!

Mönchengladbach 🇩🇪

Mönchengladbach is a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is located west of the Rhine, halfway between Düsseldorf and the Dutch border.

Today wasn’t really a photo trip but rather a test run of my new electric scooter, which will make my future trips through big cities even more efficient! The hilly Mönchengladbach, with its cobblestone streets, was perfect for a test ride. The final result: starting with an almost fully charged battery and ending with 20% remaining, I covered nearly 20 kilometers / 13 miles. A decent score!

Koninklijke Burgers' Zoo 🇳🇱

Royal Burgers' Zoo is a zoo in Arnhem, Netherlands, and is one of the biggest zoos in the country. Arnhem is a city that lies within the Veluwe, a nature park in the east of the Netherlands. The zoo is popular with both Dutch and German people, and receives about 1 million visitors annually. It was founded by Johan Burgers in 1913.

A trip to the zoo: dusted off the old kit zoom lens and, defying all conventions, shot everything in black and white! We’re not going for colorful pictures here, but for the classic, high-contrast black and white look so that the wildlife really pops.
