History and Art

Close to the Medienhafen,

in a wonderful area at the Rhine.  Lots of things to see and photograph!

A wonderful morning with a great photographer and friend as company.  Not bad for a Saturday!

Amsterdam (2018, March

A day to Amsterdam, with Hilde and Markus

If anyone asks me, what for me is the best city in the world, I not need to think long.

CLICK

For me, it is Amsterdam.  Not to live, but worth a visit, every day that you wish.

I don’t try to convice you.

Just watch the photos (nd click to enlarge them)

Boat trip through the canals

 

Follow your dreams
They bubble before your eyes
Grab them

Let the bubble reach your hands
Let it poof
Free the air that is hidden
Let the water splash at your nose

What is holding you back?

Choose your life
Not all bubbles need to be catched
And if one explodes
Before it is time

Then think
That, maybe
Maybe this bubble
Was not meant to be

Find a bubble
They are everywhere

Xanten

Another city with a lot of history is Xanten

With the Xantener Dom

the inner square

And with Markus  🙂

And with the rest, what is often the best

« 1 von 2 »

and with the crystal bowl, because we all need some sphere now and then

We even conquered the mill, who was in full function. A  challenge 🙂
