Wonky Town

Lübeck, the town where nothing is straight. The Holsten Tor is surprisingly wonky in real life and looks like it wants to sink into the ground. The Salzspeicher – Nosferatu’s old apartment – is simultaneously leaning in all directions (but at least it didn’t get worse since the 1922 film). And the towers of the Cathedral also look like they’re about to fall down. Kinda charming.

Nosferatu wasn’t home when I visited

Town Hall – this one actually has some straight lines in it. And also holes, for some reason.

All through a 1932 Rolleiflex “Old Standard”, on Ilford HP5+.
