The Silent Halls by Thinking-Silence The Silent Halls by Thinking-Silence
I had the pleasure to be allowed to walk into this area...

Well, I met one of the builders outside the fence and spoke ironically: "I am sure, I am allowed to come inside this construction site, right?"

I expected some smiling "NO."

- But for my great surprise the builder just said: "No problem, but we have to talk with my boss first."

So we walked along the fence, me still on the outside and the builder on the other side...
We came to a container, we went inside and then the worker told his boss that I wanted to take some photos here.

His boss got it wrong and asked me:

"So, what newspaper are you working for?"

And here appeared some funny irony as I was working for a newspaper as a freelance photographer at this time.

So I told him: "Well, I'm working for the `Westfälische Rundschau` newspaper."

He answered with some surprise:

"Oh some of your newspaper workmades already took some photos this morning, but it's ok."

I had to wear a helmet he gave me and then I was allowed to discover this incredible looking place...

Well for this shot I broke a rule :D
He told me not to enter the inside of the building, but hey who cares; I do everything for a good photo :D

Hope you enjoy this result :)

Thanks for reading the story behind this photograph, I hope you like it.

Greetings
Jan

Haha, I like your situation ;)

I love the tones of blue in this, it's like icing in the winter :love: There's also a nice contrast between the yellow truck; very cool.

Super Geschichte hinter diesem Bild ;) Das Bild gefällt mir sehr, vor allem wie der gelbe Bagger (wenn das einer ist ich habe davon keine Ahnung :p ) aus der recht düsteren Atmosphäre heraussticht ist super gelungen!
