Not a true photography post today...but some assorted photographs on the A. Lange & Sohne premises in Glashutte, and an unusual panorama of Dresden.
I have been welcomed at the Lange premises many, many times over the last 16 or so years. This place is more or less a second home...here are some snapshots one rather chilly December morning
The Lange 2 building, which houses the main reception, and showroom
View of the side of the building...when I first started coming to Glashutte, this was one of the main factory buildings...the original Lange 1 building is just across the courtyard and still houses the manufacturing facilities.
Inside the reception area, a short walk up the stairs to the showroom
That's the lovely Kirsten Meusinger from the PR department, standing over the portrait of F.A. Lange made up of thousands of little photographs of events over the years...I am in a few of them too...
And the main showroom...with silhouttes of some colleagues
And a view of Dresden, some 30km away...the nearest major city...a view of the Neustadt. The Dresden skyline is made famous by Canaletto. But this is the view of the new city...actually not so new...it was roughly 1732 when it was founded...
