Frankfurt, Germany

Posted on 25th August 2012 in Street Photography, wandering

The closest airport to me when I was in Darmstadt was Frankfurt Hahn. Naturally, I had to then visit Frankfurt a few times to get from here to there. Each time, I would try and capture it a little bit more, but this specific time was fairly magical as I had an hour to wander and found such magic as I roamed.

The one punk that I captured saw me shooting at him, and then kept moving to the side to avoid spoiling my photograph!

Also, the girl with her totally rad haircut, she stood next to me just outside the Frankfurt HBF as we waited for a trolly to pass by. I was just standing there ready and it happened. I don’t think she even noticed, headphones and all.

Also, nearly all big-ish (HBF = main) train stations in Germany look like the Frankfurt HBF shown below.

German Wind & Flour Mills

Posted on 28th July 2012 in adventure, architecture, explored

During my time I spent up in Schleswig-Holstein, in the Northern part of Germany, I was lucky enough to be there during the one day of the year when the local farmers who have a windmill or a flourmill open them up to visitors, kind of like a field day.

I was also lucky enough to be with some extraordinary people who were interested in showing me them, and touring me around. We managed to get to three, and afterwards we went to an old heritage village, and when I say heritage it’s not like North America heritage, it’s European heritage, which means about 500 years old.

I explored the windmills.

Schleswig-Holstein, Germany

Posted on 28th July 2012 in adventure, architecture, wandering

The Schleswig-Holstein region of Germany is in the North. It’s North of Hamburg, and stretches all the way to the Danish border. It’s a place with some of the most beautiful European history, with castles (schloƟ) everywhere, viking museums (Hedeby), and many many other such historical things.

I had a great time there, as I was with family who toured me around to everything they could think to send me at. I enjoyed this, as it was also a time for me to connect with some family history I had hoped to gather.

I wandered.
