Mirror of the
 Golden Past

Ulm. City in southern Germany. Famous for being the home of the
world's tallest cathedral (161.5m, 768 steps). Since you can find
it on thousands of web pages, please forgive me that I don't add
another shot of it here.

I had the privilege of spending three days on business in Ulm and
took the opportunity to make a couple of more 'experimental'
photos, like this one, the public library mirroring the old town
hall building. The composition came out unexpectedly well, with the
white vertical lines in the upper half contrasting the dark ones,
and the obvious contradiction between the antiquated devoured
ornaments of the town hall windows and the strict geometry of the
new library's glass facade.
