Footbridge in Bad Oldesloe


Here is a photo I took in Bad Oldesloe. While the colors of the original looked great, I didn’t like the heavy lens flare.

But now there is a little more time and I upload some of the stuff to my blog. In the past, I have shot an interesting photo of … Continue reading Artsy Alley
