Löwenburg, Schlosspark Wilhelmshöhe (June 2012)

The Löwenburg (“Lions Castle”) in Schlosspark Wilhelmshöhe, ostensibly a mediaeval castle, was actually built between 1793 and 1801 on behalf of William IX, Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel, as a hideout for his mistress(es) and himself. (Camera: Fuji X10)

Kassel: documenta 12 (August 2007)

Every five years for 100 days, Kassel becomes what earned it the byname “documenta-Stadt” – the venue of one of the most important exhibitions of contemporary art. My visit during documenta 12 did last only three days, documented with a Fuji FinePix F50fd that I was reviewing at the time.
