Wetzlar is a small, pittoreske town, about 65 Kilometers from Frankfurt am Main, in Germany. Actually we were visiting Hans, a friend of ours, who lives in Frankfurt. And when he told us about this town, immediately all alarm bells rang in my head. Because here in this beautiful little town, two worldfamous brands in photography have their residency! First of all, Carl Zeiss, the lens manufacturor, who, amongst others, makes lenses for the best camera in the world: Hasselblad (yes, I do have one...:P). Another very famous brand is located in this town: Leica, a company which makes great camera's. So...of course I had to come and visit this little town. It was a strange day for weather, extremely bright lights, and dark clouds, difficult photography weather. However, I managed to make a few nice shots. Enjoy, folks !

Hi Rick,

Really good stuff with your super wide angle. I really enjoy watching your building shots, full of charms and the distorsion gives to them a really nice rendering.
cheers

So, I was born in Wetzlar, Germany and moved away before I was 3 years old. I have never really looked up anything about Wetzlar until now and...it is beautiful. With every picture my resolution to go back some day is strengthened. Thank you so much for the pictures!
