coffee from my favourite Cup – I even love the Sound it makes when putting the Cup on the saucer (nerd? yes) – then two of my yummiest coffee pads, the Hema regular coffee pads and then my vanilla flavoured ones (best enjoyed with chocomel in it ^^ again: nerd? oh well)

 

So this what I would call proper catching up. The first ten days of The August Break which is just as much fun and fulfillment – at minimum – as it was last year. What makes it so Special this year is that I know myself accompanied by wonderful friends from Germany, France, England, Australia, Canada who are doing this year’s August Break, too.

Sherry Galey, I wouldn’t want to miss for the world having met you through photo Blogging just one year ago…thought it seems so much longer!

Up from tomorrow, it’ll be less overwhelming for you guys, as I’ll shift to a day to day posting Habit 🙂 –

 

Happy Sunday everyone – and happy August Break !!

Looking at my hometown with fresh eyes

It is by far not the first time for me to do a photowalk in downtown Aachen, and this morning I didn’t even change much of my usual paths but yet there were new impressions to be caught with the camera or different angles …

Some looked best in sepia and some in colour. Let me take you on a visual walk through the city which is only a few minutes from two other countries, namely the Netherlands and Belgium.

This redbrick building is a theatre, it offers mostly alternative plays, or at least very alternative Adaption for the 20-30somethings

Looking up does pay off from time to time

Don't those angels get dizzy? Actually I have never paid Attention to those sculptures...might have been distracted by the magnolia tree

This is not part of a camera filled with tea. It's a thermo cup camera-style. And today it made a grown man bump into a lamp post because he couldn't believe I was having one camera around the neck and drinking out of an objectif?? I really am sorry for him....

Those photogenic furry roommates of mine – always ready to put their nose towards the camera

Yes. I am happy to have two very charming senior-rabbits (at least aged 7 or even older, and very much not telling they’re that age at the moment ^^) – who are the most curious creatures I have ever seen. Put a cardboard box on the floor: First thing to do is to go inspect the looks, the taste, the stability and whether or not it’s an appropriate extra home (besides the 4 boxes which have proved to be…something like us humans would call vacation homes ^^)

Same thing happens when they see me approaching with the camera. Most of the time. As you can see yourself:

He heard the sounds of the camera. And he often is to lazy to move both ears. Must be his age ; )

Collecting all the hay leaves she threw down. She'd better... because she likes to turn their Little house upside down. "bathroom"-corner included..
