... Perkins Park on the Killesberg. Perkins Park is a well-established club. The building was built in 1939 and was used as an event location for the Reichsgartenschau (horticultural show of the Reich).

From this side you can read "wer ein paar schritte wagt geht ..." (who dares some steps goes ...)
The continuation on the other could read as follows: "... weit. wer sich verirrt kommt verloren." (... far. who gets lost goes astray.) I haven't the vaguest notion of the letters which were left over.

This panorama picture was made from 4 images. On the left there is the overhead hopper on the Pragsattel. Almost in the middle of the picture you see the Bülow tower. The white buildings right from the tower are part of the well-known residential area named Weißenhofsiedlung (I'll report about it later).
Please click the picture to enlarge it.
You see the development area at the top of the photo? In former times there were the exhibition halls on the Killesberg. Now an apartment and business complex is under construction there. A local resident told to me that she is happy about the new buildings because of the shopping and medical facilities. By the way. The new exhibition halls are situated next to the airport.

... to present you some selected impressions from yesterday's carnival parade on Shrove Tuesday. I've made more than 160 photos. I didn't make the decision easily.
There were mysterious figures on the way.
Young girls have proven their capabilities. I assume that they have kept working hard for this day.
Music way played by several bands.
Some of the figures had a soft spot for the children.

The 'Killesberg' area in the North of Stuttgart is a famous local recreation area. There are many walkways, trees, small allotments and refreshment places like this 'Biergarten'. It looks more welcoming than yesterday's beer garden. I promise I'll visit both places.

I made this photo in Feuerbach at a busy street. What do you think about this 'Biergarten'? Isn't it welcoming? Would you like to drink a beer there? OK, it's winter and not the right time for visiting a 'Biergarten'. Just as well it could be a refreshing place in spring or summer.

This compact tower is situated at the bus terminal in Feuerbach. The winter has taken a break in the moment. Greyness has got the upper hand. It's really not the best weather for a photographer.
PS: David, an attentive follwer, has informed me that the tower at the bus terminal in Feuerbach is a bomb shelter like the Bosch tower at Pragsattel. Thank you David.

The overhead hopper at the Pragsattel is artwork and information board. But the building was also modernized and upgraded for protecting the civil population in case of a catastrophe. Free of any catastrophe you can drink a beer in a tavern at the foot of the hopper. Cheers!

This building at Heilbronner Straße should be your first destination before you'll be in finance negotiations with the Mercedes-Benz Bank. If these cars are exorbitant you also could go to car dealerships which offer solid French or Japanese cars.

Das "Penthouse" ist nicht nur eine bekannte Diskothek in S-Feuerbach, sondern auch Restaurant und Lounge. Am Tage sieht sie recht unattraktiv aus. Ich werde wohl mal tüchtig vorschlafen und mal einen netten Abend hier verbringen.
The "Penthouse" is situated in Feuerbach. It's not only a well-established discotheque but also restaurant and lounge. The building isn't a vision of delight in the daytime. Therefore I've to sleep in advance to spend an enjoyable evening there.

Dieses Panorama-Bild ist aus 4 Photos entstanden, die ich aus einem Fahrstuhl heraus gemacht habe. Unten ist die vielbefahrene Heilbronner Straße, dahinter Feuerbach.
This panorama picture was made from 4 photos which I've made from an elevator. The busy street named Heilbronner Straße is at my feet. There is the Feuerbach district behind the street.
Die Außenfahrstühle des NORDTOR PLAZAs haben es mir angetan.
The external lifts of the NORDTOR PLAZA building have taken a shine to me.

Der 1. Juni 2011 stand unter dem Motto "Im Bau". Da zeigte ich ein Bild aus der Lautenschlager Straße in S-Mitte. Vor ein paar Tagen sah es schon so aus.
The motto was "Under Construction" last year on June 1st. I've published a photo of a building lot from the Lautenschlager Straße in the centre. The today's photo shows the situation some days before.
