Before I went to the Kultfabrik, I walked around these high rise office blocks. There are some interesting shots to be made here.

The Kultfabrik revealed two fine specimens of the family, “Lost Shoe”. This time I´m also including an in situ shot to give you an idea as to how this shoe was laying and what also surrounded it.

I think the effect is one of a random still life, or maybe random still decay.

The Kultfabrik is an “Edgeland” at the centre of Munich, parts of it seem to be decaying back into a feral state, right there amongst the night life and the infrastructure that services it.

A fascinating and stimulating place

By primetime, I mean I´ve just bought the 50mm Nikkor prime lens, it´s not so obvious as the big “oooh missis what a whopper!” zoom lenses. To try it out I had a wander around the Kultfabrik near the east main station in Munich. It occupies what used to be the Pfanni ready made food factory – they make things with spuds – the jury is out on that one!

The Kultfabrik is the home to a load of clubs, bars and a 30m high climbing gym. What really attracts me to the place is that I feel at home there, it could be in Liverpool or Manchester and has a great mix of dirt, colour and life! In fact it´s not really much like the usual impression one gets of squeaky clean Munich. These boxing machines and the wall behind really give one a visual upper cut to the jaw – great stuff!. I spent a couple of hours walking around the place and found – YES – two lost shoes, which I will be posting soon, maybe even tomorrow. So watch this space. Actually on the lost shoe front it´s been a bumper day, because I found one this morning too! I´m going to do more work here, coming back when the place is open and the clubers are out and about.

And my opinion about the prime lens? It´s fab!
