Underneath This Lamp

Last weekend a friend ask me which kind of lighting do I use when I photograph something at home. Well I don't use any special light or anything, I have almost no photography gear. just a camera, with its 18-55mm lens and a mini tripod of 25cms. So This is usually the lamp that gives me the light for them. With it I have been doing some experimentations on learning about the colour temperature.

Stuttgart 21 Underneath

For those who are not familiar with this controversial project, I will try to explain it briefly.
Stuttgart 21 is an urban development transport project. It consists of the replacement of the tracks and platforms of the city's main railway station, with new infrastructure mainly located underneath.

As I see it, a lot of old and unused tracks will be removed and the new space will be re-utilized. A big proportion will be added to the park surrounding the train station, and some other part will be sold for new developments. The new park will be much bigger and will hold much more trees and green areas, than the couple of trees that need to be removed. I have been in places, where unfortunately its government does not invest in new infrastructure and has been leading to a lot of problems that now are hardly to repair.  I am glad to see that a city is investing in its own urban development which will bring progress in the future to the complete region.
(New infrastructure -> development  -> progress -> Future)  = Evolution


Unfortunately, not everyone thinks like that, and its development has been highly controversial. I think that this topic will steer the next elections, and maybe then we will know if the people against it are really not the minority(as they claim to be). 
I have seen many people protesting against it, however there are a lot of people who are in favour. The difference I think is that for example me. I do have better things to do instead of going to manifestations, generating un-necesary trafic jams, camping on the park and outside the train station, tyeing my selft to trees and filling the city with stickers pasted everywhere.(Like those on the picture). In my personal opinion, this kind of behaviour is not only not helping their cause, but it is even disturbing every one else.

And the thing with the stickers... well. wouldn't it be some kind of vandalism? two out of three signs has at least one sticker on it.  If you are trying to make the government save some bucks, why don't trying to avoid this conduct? .. how much would it cost to remove all of them? who is going to pay for it? or even replace the damaged ones? I have even seen them everywhere. At least Graffiti is always different and sometimes it can be Art... but the same sticker over and over again... it is just not right!

By the way.... Did you like the picture?

Above or Below

Today I was thinking what to photograph as "underneath" and I was thinking.... "how low I need to go to find something that lies underneath" and then I realize that everything is relative. Depending on the point of view. ( I think a famous scientist made a Theory about it long time ago).
So.. I noticed that instead of going lower... I can start looking what lies above me... and. I will be underneath it right?...
Well... While I was driving I found this Tower. and decided that I will start looking up more often... I will try to post things that I see every day on my way to work. from a different angle.

I drive everyday underneath this tower of power cables. Sometimes we are not Aware of what we have above us. Sometimes it is just matter of looking up.
