photoblog image Stuttgart - Schlossplatz  3/4

Stuttgart - Schlossplatz 3/4

The Schlossplatz covers a large area and was last fully renovated in 1977 to mark the staging of the Bundesgartenschau (State Garden Show) in Stuttgart. The lawns and flowerbeds were renewed in 2006 following the staging of the 2006 World Cup Finals. There are many of these fine lamp posts round the square, and I think this image shows that even all those years ago I found such things quite photogenic.  Taken on colour slide in the 1970's and scanned.

Much to like about this fine shot, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray. I enjoyed riding about on the trams you can see in the background.
It does look very lovely!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, I do remember that parts of the city were very attractive, and it has a great zoo, and trams, wowee!!
Nicely framed Brian... that is a very ornate light standard....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. I like taking photos of attractive lamps.

They were determined to get as many lamp heads on that stalk as they could!
Brian Walbey: Indeed they were Chris, or as had has called it, lampage.

Yes, the lantarns/lamp posts in Germany's towns are often especially beautiful and so various. This is a fine ensemble!
Brian Walbey: Indeed they are very fine Philine. I especially like taking pictures of fine lamps and lamp standards.
I like the yellow trams.
Brian Walbey: So do I Richard, and I enjoyed riding about on them.
They've mounted the lamp on a pedestal just like they would for a fine sculpture, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes they have Beverly, but the lamp itself is almost a work of art in design isn't it.
Note the absence of signs in this, I wonder if that is still so?
Brian Walbey: If the EU have had their way then no doubt there might be plenty of signs in this lovely square by now John.
It looks great Brian. The lamp is gorgeous.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Pauline, I like seeing lamps like this about the place.

I like the lamp posts. They obviously didn't have columns long enough hence the plinth. I expect that the gardens need renovation after hordes of footballing fans have run across them.
Brian Walbey: I like lamps and lampposts Alan if they have character like this one. I doubt the German police would let football fans roam wild in such a lovely square as this one, we're not talking England here.

It all looks so clean and tidy! Amazing to think that slide is nearly the same age as me!
Brian Walbey: Sad to say I was already coming up to 30 when I took these slides, but then of course if I hadn't have been I wouldn't have taken the slides would I, if you get my logic smile
Very nicely framed Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
Interesting bit of history!
Brian Walbey: Indeed Tom, thanks for your comment.
