ART Modern

Stirred, shaken, centered, focused, united, divided, subtracted, adapted, arranged or just the view from a different perspective. Not only a photo, – it is “Modern Art”

Grandview Ave

7. August 2019 0 comments

Wikivoyage writes about Pittsburgh: “Pittsburgh has some of the top sights … and, according to many Americans, the most spectacular city panorama in the United States.”

For my part, I totally agree with that. Even the “journey” is special. The ‘Monongahela Incline’, which was commissioned in 1870, is considered to be the oldest continuously operated mountain railway in the world. It leads up to Mount Washington, the district on the other side of the Monongahela River.

No wonder that the street up there is appropriately named Grandview Avenue. Here you have a wonderful view of downtown Pittsburgh with its impressive skyscrapers and numerous bridges.

Anyone who has seen this view with their own eyes, recognizes the city again and again. Even if, as in this picture, not all structures and buildings are clearly visible.

It is very impressive how our brains works, isn´t it? You immediately recognize and assign the motif, even with such unclear images.

The picture was taken on July, 21th, 2019.

Which invitation for celebrating the summer could be more colorful and meaningful than this one?

A happy invitation to enjoy and celebrate the summer in all its facets.

I found this poster at the beach in Camps Bay, South Africa, in November 2018.

The Red Stairs

25. September 2016 0 comments

Who does not know the red stairs on the Times Square in New York?

Everybody who visit New York has certainly taken a rest on the red stairs above the TKTS ticket office to watch the hustle and bustle at the Times Sqaure. Here, time never stands still, here you feel the pulse and the heartbeat of New York.

And, of course,  you can feel that New York has rightfully earned its nickname: “The city that never sleeps!”.

This photo was taken on my visit in September, the 11th in 2016.

Roasted Salmon in Riga

23. January 2016 0 comments

“Cepta laša fileja ar avokado salsu, krāsainiem rīsiem un kaperu mērci ar sarkanajiem siļķu ikriem.”

What a beautiful name for a savory dish in Riga. And also perfect for the category “Worlds Food”, but just posting the regular food picture only is not what my blog is for. Therefore here the photo transformed in “Modern Art Style”.

Roasted salmon fillet with avocado salsa, rainbow rice and caper sauce with red herring caviar.

I took this picture in Riga, August, 08,2015, shortly before eating the meal on the beautiful Place Līvu Laukums.

And for all of you who are interested in the original image: This is how my meal looks before I transformed it for the “Modern Art Photo”.Lachs aus Riga original

Desert Dunes

Endless desert, red sand and a infinite blue sky from which the sun burns. The earth flickers. Is it a Fata Morgana or an oasis in the desert, the cloudless sky reflects in the deep blue water? This is the original site of the United Arab Emirates.

Apple Picking

18. September 2015 0 comments

South Tyrol in Italy is well known for its apples. Right now is also the time for the picking. I remember very well how aromatic the apple fields smell and how delicious a fresh picked apple taste. … As a teenager, I visited very often with my parents the area around Sterzing, Meran and Dorf Tirol. The picture was taken at the Expo 2015 in Milan in July at the Pavilion of South Tyrol / Alto Adige.

On what do you remember when you see the picture?

Industrial products mimic nature, and help to protect and preserve them with new technologies. Nature meets technology – Future Energy. The original photo was taken at the German Pavilion at EXPO in Milan in June 2015th.
