Going Wide: Lens Artist Challenge # 165

This week Patti at P.A. Moed has set the challenge of “Going Wide”. Thank you Patti for this wonderful topic !

Like many other photographers I frequently use the wide angle lens of my camera for landscapes but as well for city pictures. Photos taken from vantage points are my favorite but I also like city scapes with a beautiful foreground, such as a river or a lake.

Lens-Artists Challenge #164 – Looking Up/Down

For translation please use the Google Translate Button on my site.

This week I thank Sofia Alves for leading this challenging weekly theme.

I found a few photos in my archives although not as many as I thought. But Sofia Alves gave me an inspiration for future photography.

St. Paul’s Cathedral, London:

Tour de Montparnasse, Paris:

Fortress Luxembourg:

After those images from European Capital cities I will close with a personal photo of my old trekking shoes. Wherever I traveled in the last years I took them with me. They were very comfortable, especially during long city walks. Before throwing them out I took many photos as a souvenir. After this I could not discard them and put them back in shoe cabinet.

Always looking forward to your feedback.

Warten/ The Wait …

… ist das spannende Thema von Royuschs neuer Fotochallenge, bei der ich gerne mitmache.

Das Photo habe ich in den spanischen Pyrenäen aufgenommen. Auf dem Rückweg von einer Wanderung wurden wir von einer Rinderherde ausgebremst. Ein altes Ehepaar trieb die Tiere über die Straße. Sie trotteten ganz gemütlich und friedlich an unserem Mietwagen vorbei. Das Rind im Vordergrund schaute mich, die Fotografin, sehr neugierig an. Wir hatten keine Eile und fanden die Begegnung sehr liebenswert, also störte uns das Warten nicht.

Über euer Feedback freue ich mich immer sehr.

Where Luther translated the bible: Wartburg

For translation please use the Google Translate Button on my site.

Exactly 500 years ago (1521/1522) Luther translated the Bible from Latin and Greek into German while hiding in this castle at Eisenach, Germany. In those times no uniform German language existed only many dialects. With Luther’s translation the Holy Script became not only accesible to a wider public but he also laid the grounds for standard German.

This is for Debbie’s Six Word Saturday. Thank you Debbie for hosting.

Always looking forward to your feedback
