Strassbourg canals

The canals that flow through Strassbourg's old city make photographing here a treat.

Technology Museum

As we entered the Technology Museum in Speyer, I decided to try capture a few black and white shots.  However, when I got home, I liked the look of some of them with a little bit of colour, some needed full colour and some were best in black and white.

Speyer in Black and White

In Speyer Cathedral, I decided to try a few black and white shots.  It isn't something I often do, but it's fun to "see" this way occasionally.

Window Shutters

I don't recall ever seeing many shutters on windows in North American cities.  If there are, they are usually decorative and serve no useful purpose.  Shutters, and their hardware, are details that jump out at me in European cities.  These were shot in Speyer, Germany.

Speyer statues

These statues of Emperors are among those that stand outside Speyer Cathedral.

Look up ... look way up:  Ceiling details from Cochem Castle.

Just cruisin' down the river

Dawn on the river

When I'm on holidays, in a new location, I like to rise early and see what images the dawn offers up.  In Europe, I was rarely disappointed.  The expectations that came with being on the river made me excited for each morning.

Daffodils are a symbol of rebirth.  I've saved the daffodil images for today.

Happy Easter
