Q is for Quedlinburg

In the early ’90s, soon after the fall of the Wall, we travelled to the former communist East Germany, now part of a unified democratic Germany. In only just over a week, we covered quite a lot of ground, and one of the places we swiftly travelled through late in the day was the medieval town of Quedlinburg:

I took a few monochrome images (good old Ilford FP4), and am impressed with the detail. We vowed to return one day, and nearly a decade later, we did. Here are a few images from that time, as a gallery (click on any image for slideshow)

  1. Beautiful old timbers, Sue 🙂 🙂

  2. Good old FP4 indeed, one of my favourite films. I still have some (very old) stock somewhere. I also used a lot of XP2, as it could be processed cheaper on a colour machine. No substitute for detail of course. That’s why I still miss film.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      Well, d’you know, Pete, I’m inclined to agree….Looking at that monochrome image after a number of years, I was struck by the quality of the. Film capture…..

  3. “Q” could’ve been a tricky one – but not for you! I love the streetscape and the spires poking up out of such luxuriance of green.

    they are like postcards from another era – what an interesting travel time you took Sue. Good old days of ilford film

    I have to confess to preferring the newer view of the street, in colour. The Ilford one from the early days made the place look so depressing (which is probably was) but the shot of colour more than cheered it up.

  6. oh these are fabulous Sue, so glad I got to visit this post

  7. Lovely old buildings looking quite cheerful. 😍
