Never Forget

without comments

I took this photo back in 2011 while visiting Berlin.  I love the composition, but the lighting always seemed  a little off, so I never processed it and forgot about it. That’s the beauty of never deleting a photo and rediscovering it. It was as if I had just took the photo for the first time and I can still remember the gentleman waiting on the bench for his wife to come out of the store that was behind me. The moral of the story is never delete a photo, you may not like it today but you may tomorrow.

This photo was take somewhere between Frankfurt and Berlin Germany.  The windmills where striking juxtaposed against the blue sky.

Dachau

without comments

Few things in life have made my spine tingle in fear as when I visited the concentration camp in Dachau Germany; knowing that men are capable of treating each other so horribly.

Happy Thanksgiving!

without comments

Hey folks, it’s Thanksgiving week and I am thankful for all that God has done for me this year. The growth that I have experienced and the new friends I have gained as I establish roots here in PA.  I’m taking a vacation this week so no new photos… except this one. This photo was taken at the Dachau Concentration Camp just outside Munich Germany.  Each gravel rectangular shaped area held a barracks. Over its twelve years as a concentration camp, the Dachau administration recorded the intake of 206,206 prisoners and 31,951 deaths. This was a very sobering experience for me.  I  cannot understand how people can willfully attempt to exterminate one another.  For this I am thankful, that we have come far as species, but have farther to go.

Berlin

without comments

The Nikolai Quarter located in the Mitte district of Berlin is the recreated heart of the city.  Also known as the Nikolaiviertel, it is the oldest residential area of Berlin. With its medieval lanes and numerous restaurants and bars, it is one of the favorite destinations for visitors to Berlin.  I took this photo while waiting for my wife jewelry shopping.  The gentleman in the photo seemed to be doing the same as I was, so I thought it only fitting to take a picture of the future me.
