Entry and Exit…Heidelberg edition

Posted on

I visited Heidelberg, Germany yesterday and took more photos than I ever imagined.  It is a beautiful and energizing city.  I pulled together a few of the photos with the theme of Entry and Exit.

When You Wish Upon A Star……

Today I visited the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany.  It is a magical place (with a slightly strange history).  I can see why Disney modeled their castle after this one.  I saw a beautiful opportunity to play with light and shadow in the same photo subjects.  I can’t decide which effect I like better….

The Doors of Rothenburg ob der Tauber

I took a short trip to the medieval town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber today.  Lots of interesting things to explore and photos to take.  Here is a collection of the many doors of Rothenburg.

Snapshots from Nuremberg

I arrived in Nuremberg, Germany after traveling 15+ hours from Portland. I granted myself a nap in the late morning and decided to rally in the afternoon to explore. I discovered some beautiful details around town and thought I’d share them here.
