Travel Tuesday: I’m back …

.. from a short trip to Norddeich. 

We arrived at a beautiful summerly day and were welcomed with a blue sky, mild wind and nice 22°C.
Unfortunately, the temperatures dropped to 1 – 8°C for the next days and we were bid a farewell with a gray sky, heavy wind and even some snow and hail between the rain.
But, I won’t complain about the weather at the day we left. I’m happy about the nice days during our stay. Although, the temperatures were cold, the weather was nice and we were outside a lot: walking around, sitting in the beach chair, photographing birds.
This image was developed with the open source raw development tool Darktable. Although it’s installed on my computer for a very long time, I used it only seldom. The user interface is kind of weird. You have to invest some time to understand it. But, it’s worth the effort, as you can see.

Take care!

Travel Tuesday: time is flowing …

.. like a river.
Time, beckoning me
Who knows when we shall meet again
If ever
But time
Keeps flowing like a river
To the sea
Goodbye my love,
Maybe for forever

Throwback Thursday: the smallest street I ever walked along

When I was in Praha back in 2010, I came along these traffic lights.

The traffic lights are for pedestrians. Right next to the lights, there is a button at the wall for people to change the lights from red to green. This is necessary, because the street is so narrow, that no two persons are able to pass each other when in the street. Even kids are unable to do so. So, the traffic lights are really a necessity.

Take care!
