This year in summer I had the opportunity to spend a couple of days in Frankfurt. Considered Germany’s financial centre and paired with the largest hub-airport of mainland Europe this city should be an interesting place to explore, I assumed.
So I prepared and packed my equipment intending to take some longtime exposures there. I did a bit of research in advance on when and where to find patterns of human motion that would best fit my purpose.
One of them should be to find crowds of employees during rush hour in and around Frankfurt’s financial district with the central station being the city’s largest public transport hub.
In the end I was lucky I happened to be in the city at the right time for the Ironman European Championship 2013. This, of course, was a great opportunity to merge the aspect of human motion with the cityscape subject again.
Speaking of scale I was impressed that distances in Frankfurt are rather short. The reknown skyline along the river Main seems to indicate a large urban core, but surprisingly the historical centre and the financial district are pretty walkable.
These are a couple of the best results I got.
