Comparing towers

Andre, Black And White Photography, Photography

I took this image on a rainy day during my second trip to Paris.

Here we have a modern tower representing the modern capital of France: office buildings made of concrete, glass and steel.

In the background you can see the Eiffel tower, built from 1887-1889 for the World Exhibition as a memorial landmark for the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution.

At that time, it was the highest building on earth. 324m of pure iron. Really a world wonder. Until, in 1930 the Chrysler Building in New York took over the label “highest building of the world”.

Welcome to Metropolis

Andre, Black And White Photography, Photography

Guess, what’s behind this wonderful door.

It’s the entrance of a machine hall in a coal mine!

About a year ago I posted some color images from there.

When I was walking through that machine hall, it felt like visiting Metropolis, the dystopian city created by Fritz Lang in 1927 for this fantastic movie with the same name.
