Very good photography as usual Kampflamm.

About the long exposure shots. Do you travel with a tripod, or? How compact is it? Also the daylight long exposure shot, do you have some sort of filter for that?

Beautiful cities too.

Yeah I sometimes use a tripod...although I hate carrying it around so many long exposure shots were just taken with the camera being put up against a wall.

For the long daylight shots I just closed the aperture to f22. I suppose you could also get one of those ND filters for that but then you'd have to change filters all the time.

TURIN



Right here I just placed the camera up against my shoe...



And here I put it up against one of the columns:





MILAN

Nope, a flight from Düsseldorf to Turin (almost as busy as Luxembourg Airport)...and yes, this was my first crossing of the Alps.

More from Turin:

very nice shots Kampflamm

i'm curious, since you have visited 2 cities whick "dislike" each other , which one did you prefer?

about the turin airport: unfortunately it is not worthy of the economic (and recently also tourist) importance of my city.

p.s.: the true capital of nutella is the town of Alba, 60 km far from turin, mainly famous for truffles.
however turin is recognized also as an important gastronomic centre, especially after the ouverture of Eataly (the biggeest high quality wine and food market in the world) beside the Lingotto.

Lulz @ "capital of Nutella v capital of fashion". I was expecting a flame war of some sort about that.

Great shots BTW!

Difficult to say...Milan almost looked "Viennese" to me (at least some of the buildings had that k.u.k.-19th century grandeur). Overall I preferred Turin though. Great location (the riverside, the hills, the architecture) and not as much post-war architecture, which I can always "admire" here in Germany.

More shots from Turin:

Let's just say they're both far better than most if not all German cities.

Newteller wins over fashionism hands down - no issue.

Neat stream Kampflamm, btw, keep on posting.
