The Telespargel


Being greeted by the Telespargel against a blue sky is a wonderful sight when climbing out of the U-Bahn. I tried many different angles, but I liked this one the best. There are ruins of an actual cloister at Klosterstrasse. I should get back there one of these days to get some shots of it. Until then, you'll find more signs at Signs, Signs.

ETA: The real name of the structure is simply the TV Tower. However, due to its shape, many people call it the Telespargel (Tele-asparagus).

    1. I'm not sure it was tricky, but in my other shots you couldn't see the "ball" as well. ;-)
