Becky ( my wife ) plays in the Reading Symphony Orchestra and on the 19th September we made the trip out to Dusseldorf so she could take part in an exchange visit to play a Concert in the TonHalle. In my thinly glazed disguise as official tour photographer I got access to take some photos inside the Tonhalle. The building is amazing with one of the most spectacular ceilings I have ever seen in a concert venue. WOW isÂ definitelyÂ the word I used when I walked in the room.Â
Dusseldorf is also interesting for it’s contrast between old and new parts of the city. I had a few hours spare on Saturday morning to walk around and take some photos. Definitely not enough time but I got a few great shots.
Also a big thanks has to go to Etka for ferrying us around for the three days, and her parents for letting us stay in their “Guest flat” rather than us booking a hotel.
