Fifteen photographers had shown up on this particular cloudy day from Frankfurt and Karlsruhe's Flickr groups. Our meet and greet had started off in the dining area of the ever so cool 'The Cooking Ape.' Feeling cozy and well fed, it had taken us two and half hours to head off on our photo walk. We trekked along the river main into Frankfurt city by daylight, then for a new perspective with the city's early evening lights.
This was my first walk through Frankfurt city, as on a couple of occasions I had only managed to visit the city's annual International book fair and trips to its international airport. The city was buzzing at 6 on this Saturday evening and it was as though the residents and the city's international visitors had congregated just to shop. The combination of the old town area and the gleam of the modern skyline buildings had caught my interest in this shiny alpha city!
