Stuttgart Skywatch #5: TV Tower

Ein wenig enttäuschend war die Berührung schon, von Beton kann man aber auch nichts Besonderes erwarten. Umso beeindruckender war der Blick nach oben ...
The direct contact with the TV tower was a little bit disappointing. It's just ordinary concrete, it's nothing fancy. But the view upwards was amazing ...

It might be ordinary concrete, but it's functional and does the job.

Die Aufnahme vom Turm ist wirklich gelungen! Habe mir erstmal überlegt, wo denn dieser Tunnel steht ;-)

Super!

I like that pot of flowers in front of the building. Sort of odd, but nice!
