A small trip to Cologne
This my mate Daniel and me mad a small trip to Cologne in order to shoot a picture we've always wanted to shoot. The well-known Cologne skyline.

After a 30 minute long ride from Bonn to the Cologne main train station we had to cross the old train bridge to reach the place from where we wanted to take "the shot".
There is one really nice thing about this bridge tho. Not that it's like really huge or beautiful, but the people living in cologne invented a really nice tradition. Once a couple is in love, they use to hang up a lock at the bridge, mostly with their names engraved. So nowadays you can see a quite respectable amount of locks hanging at the bridge, some newer ones, some old ones :) I find it awesome.

While waiting for the sun to go down, we spent the time doing some Lightpainting and shooting some portraits of me.

Took like two hours for the sun to go down and we finally could start. After spending like another 60 minutes we finally got it! Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Think this tradition is from Russia. In Estonia russians always put a lock on a bridge and throw the key into water.
