Merry Christmas


I wish you all a Merry Christmas. I hope you had a good time together with your loved ones. As advised, we’ve come together in a very small family circle this year.

Some of the things have been stressful, but then … Continue reading Merry Christmas

The reason why I shot the photo was that I liked the arch of the bridge from my point of view. Together with the housing in the background and the stairs, it just made me want to … Continue reading Footbridge in Bad Oldesloe
