Details

This was so much fun last year for atmosphere-rich photos! So, we will once again explore Poppelsdorf Cemetery in Bonn (thanks for Dörthe for the suggestion!). Here are some photos from last time: https://www.meetup.com/photoreskcologne/events/246069563/

The theme for this MeetUp is composition and mood. Design the photos you are taking, to fit a mood you want to create in the viewer.

Some links to whet your appetite:

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poppelsdorfer_Friedhof, We could walk around and up the hill at the cemetery, and there’s a nice view up there towards Cologne (well… the refineries in Wesseling, but with luck we might also see the Cologne cathedral) and there’s also the Kreuzberg church (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kreuzbergkirche_(Bonn)) up there. We are meeting in the morning (but not too early!) in the hope it might be misty or damp and add to the atmosphere. Consider wearing walking shoes, so we can explore a bit further. The MeetUp will take place even if it is raining - just bring some covers to protect your camera!

As always, at the end of the MeetUP, we will gather for a coffee or lunch and look at our pictures and chat. (Locals tell me that around Poppelsdorfer Platz and Clemens-August-Str. there are some nice restaurants.) Location: https://goo.gl/maps/M7Yze2bGK6P2 - probably best to meet at the lower entrance at the crossing of Servitenweg and Wallfahrtsweg. Should be quite easy to get to, either by public transport (bus to Poppelsdorfer Platz, or a 20 min walk from Bonn central station) or by car, or by bicycle. The cemetery is accessible all the time.
