Street Theme continued

I seem to be occupied with streets of late; little pretty streets. This one is in my hometown of Hannover, Germany at the Ballhofplatz, which is a plaza in the heart of Hannover’s old town.

The staircase

It is no secret to those of you that have followed me for a while that I love the New Town Hall in my hometown of Hannover in Germany. The building, inside and out, is just majestic. One of the great features are the spiral staircases, which are actually elliptical in shape. I love to photograph them whenever I am back there.

Remembering the golden colours of Autumn

Winter has arrived, well somewhat, we had a skiff of snow overnight with a little more during today. Instead of feeling sorry about the inevitable, I thought I would remind myself of the golden colours of Autumn we were lucky to experience in Germany at the end of Ocotober.

Impatient

I am impatient; for once I want this weekend to be over so that I can fast forward to Friday when I will be off to see my family in Germany! Patience is not my strong point!

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Locks and Clocks

Having missed Tuesday’s Fun Foto Challenge (what with 18th birthdays, concerts and planning), I wasn’t going to miss another challenge this week!

It’s locks and clocks today.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Fountains

Fountains originally were used to for drinking and washing in, and in a lot of countries that is still the case. However, the majority of us think of fountains in a decorative, architectural way.

Here then are my examples, all of the decorative/architectural kind.

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Steps

I was going to post this as usual on Thursday night, but never got around to it as I was a) working late and b) getting things ready for a daytrip out on Friday; so here are this week’s photos for the B&W Challenge; Steps!
