On my recent trip to Cologne (or Köln as it is originally meant to be) I shot a number of photos of the famous cathedral (Kölner Dom) in the city. The weather was very cloudy and it kind of felt right to have them in black and white. Well, the sky and the architecture shades certainly predisposed me to see the images in an applied Moriyama effect.
Both Ljubljana in Slovenia and Zagreb in Croatia have been on my list for years. I have heard so many good words from people I have met. And they were all right. These two cities are simply amazing.
This was a Prague trip of lights… in many different ways. Indeed, the photographic opportunities were amazing. The light conditions were just perfect. And somehow I couldn’t resist but to see a few shots through my Moriyama filter. So you will not see below a presentation that features the same tonality or vision. Just like the city itself – on one side the great sights and on the other the touristy flashy and quite not interesting (to me at least) shops.
Würzburg is a city of wine… Or so people say here in Bavaria. The truth is that I had couple of amazing classes of Rose and Riesling at a kiosk on Alte Meinbrücke (the old bridge on the Mein river). This is a must-do for anyone travelling to the city. Especially when walking around the castle on the hill and looking at all the vineyards surround it…
But here is the punch in the whole story – User Experience. This is not a notion that applies only to your website or application. It concerns every trip the user takes in order to complete a task set upfront, reach a goal or simply enjoy the ride. Great user experience is achieved through supplying all the means in terms of information architecture, content, clarity and staying out-of-the-way(which means no messing up with my mind). And believe me, doing all that needs careful consideration based on research, common sense and ability to walk in someone else’s shoes.
