Chinese Anemones (Anemone hupehensis) at the Botanical Garden in Bielefeld. Actually, I just wanted to take a few test photos with the new Zeiss Batis Apo-Sonnar f/2.8 135 mm. Certainly flowers are not the main field of application for this lens. It still worked quite well!

The lake Obersee is a reservoir in a recreation area in the Bielefeld district of Schildesche. It was build in the late 1970s and is the largest lake in the town of Bielefeld. The following photos were taken on a Sunday morning at about seven o'clock.

The Bielefeld University (Universität Bielefeld) was founded in the late 1960s. The main building represents with its functional concrete structure the typical architectural style of that period. The university is by far the largest building in Bielefeld. Even if from today's point of view only a minority may call it beautiful, it is without doubt one of the city's most prominent landmarks.

The Rudolf-Oetker-Halle is a concert hall in Bielefeld. It was built between 1929 and 1930 and opened in 1931. The construction of the hall was made possible by the entrepreneur family Oekter. The name recalls Rudolf Oetker, who was killed in World War One. The Oetkerhalle is known for its very good acoustics. Among various other events, the Bielefeld Philharmonic Orchestra (Bielefelder Philharmoniker) use the hall for their concerts.
