Regardless of whether it is a high-rise building, a church or even a terrace – people always want to build higher, bigger and further. Some motifs of our Pictures of the Week are very good examples of this striving:
“The Shard” in London is a modern skyscraper made of glass and steel, which some might even find a bit menacing. Photographer Joachim Kiner succeeds in capturing the cool and forbidding aura of the skyscraper in an exciting way. The almost gloomy lighting mood is characteristic of this, Kiner photographed at nightfall.

In contrast to this is the Maria Gern pilgrimage church in the Berchtesgadener Land. The church, with its wooden shingles, pink pilasters and window frames on a white background, blends in very well with the Upper Bavarian panorama. Photographer Cyril Gosselin skilfully photographed this calm, idyllic atmosphere.
The Terrazza Mascagni in Livorno is a terrace overlooking the Ligurian Sea. Originally built in 1925, it still seems to breathe the spirit of its time. Gallery photographer Klaus-Peter Kubik has artfully staged the strict lines of the black and white checkerboard pattern with his long exposure, giving the viewer the impression of being in an Italian film noir.
The other pictures of the day of the 22nd calendar week come up with other interesting motifs. Our photo series shows them in summary.

Photographer Joachim Kiner captured one of the tallest skyscrapers in Europe in a very exciting way in London. He writes: “The Shard is an attractive subject for photographers – especially when the top of the tower begins to shine in the glow of the lights as night falls. For my shot I have a Sony Alpha 6300 and a Sony travel zoom SEL 18-135mm was used. The elevated shooting location from the roof terrace of my hotel made the job a lot easier. In the narrow streets and alleys of London, however, the closely packed houses rarely offer a view of the tower.” (Image: Joachim Kiner
