Our Hamburg shoot provided a little time to explore the city centre and capture some street images.
Set on the river Elbe, connecting eastern Europe and Bohemia with the North Sea, Hamburg is the third largest port in Europe.
During WW2 Hamburgs importance identified it as a military target and like may strategic locations across Europe, the city centre sustained heavy damage during a ferocious campaign of Allied bombings.
Today this is evident from the ever adjusting mix of old and new architecture that evolves as the city is still being redeveloped and repurposed.
Despite the levels of destruction, the Iconic old docks of the Speicherstadt miraculously remained mostly intact and are now protected to retain their external identity and international attraction.
