Heidelberg, Germany

Posted on 22nd October 2012 in architecture, Street Photography, wandering

If you’ve been reading, or you know me, you know that I’ve just been gone to Europe for about five months. If you haven’t seen any of the photographs from other segments of this trip, you may also be interested in seeing Köln, Darmstadt, Frankfurt, Schleswig-Holstein, London, or Berlin. Yes, there will be much more to still come, but that should catch you up to here.

I went to Heidelberg mainly to photograph the dazzling Krystena who clearly outshined the historical Heidelberg, none-the-less I had a few minutes before meeting up with Krystena where I was walking around the town, so I figured I should press the trigger. Why not?!

One thing I’ve noticed as I get more experience is that if I’ve set out in the morning to photograph a model, I’m so excited to shoot the model that it’s usually hard for me to put my mind into a different frame to also photograph… let’s say architecture. Call it nerves, call it excitement, call it distraction. It is what it is.

The city is unique because during the war the USA didn’t bomb it very heavily, or at all. The rumor is that they had decided it would be where they would install their military base, and wanted a place that would be still intact. Most of the rest of Germany was very heavily bombed and a lot of the ancient and beautiful architecture was destroyed, though there is still lots that remain.

 

 

I didn’t get the sign in on this photograph, but it said: “FREE HUGS.” Of course I got one!
