Stuttgart are foreigners and a foreign language is spoken in nearly every second household. The international businesses here such as Daimler, Porsche, HP, IBM and Bosch make use of the advanced stage of integration here to conduct business all over the world. Our namesake in America is not quite as outward-looking.
But here I was wanting to talk about the autumn sunlight and not about business in Stuttgart!
The train station is one of my favorite topics, but you already knew that!
Wherever the sun shines brightly and the shadows are long, I can stand and stare forever.
positions when making photographs is, in fact, staring right into the sun. Doing so helps you concentrate on the shapes of objects in front of you and the strength of the light rather than the colors or gestures. Of course it is intense and not easy on the eye (or the camera's sensor), so you have to protect yourself and your equipment by taking frequent breaks. However, when the sun is this low, you have only about 15 more minutes before it has totally disappeared. In the autumn and winter the blue hour is not as glorious as in the summer so take advantage of every minute!

With our without color, the inner courtyard of the massive LBBW-Bank near the train station is worth a few shots.
