Hamburg was the first German city that I have visited when I first traveled to Germany as a kid in the year 1994. My father was working there before he moved to Bochum.The last year I have visited Hamburg three times, but only in December 2017, I had one free day to explore the city.
The temperature was probably around +1 degree Celcius - cold, gray and snowy. The strong wind moves the clouds in Hamburg fast. As opposed to the North Rhine-Westphalia, where the clouds mostly don't have visible structure, the sky in Hamburg appears as dynamic and dramatic.
On that trip I took only one lens with me: Sony Zeiss 24mm 1.8 (SEL-24F18Z), that equals the 35mm lens. There were moments where I wished I could have a telelens with me, but sometimes gear limitations make the game more fun. A friend of mine, German travel photographer Patrick Wendt, who travels the world over the last two years, at the beginning of his journey used the Fuji X100 with the fixed 35mm 2.0. Due to that limitation Patrick, in my opinion, developed a recognizable style.
