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.

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