Today was one of those last and rare warm days, wich give you a last feeling of summer before hitting you in the face with winter days. I thought I'd use it to ride my bike and take some pictures along the "Rheinischer Esel" (Rhenish donkey).
"Rheinischer Esel" is the name of an old industrial railway track in the area of the Ruhrpott (Ruhr valley). After the closing of most of this area's industrial facilities (such as steelworks, coal mines, etc.) it was and is still being turned into a bycicle and pedestrian trail.
This staircase is the way to the cellar, where we can keep our bycicles. It's somewhat annoying and dirty, but I thought'd make an interesting background for outfit pictures.
