havnt got much time, so Ill keep this short.

1) chapel
this is a little chapel in the Park Belvedere, south of Weimar. A lovely place to find and enjoy the peace outside the city. The ones who follow the Own Art thread and the collage of Weimar thread, will recognize this photo. Used a digi cam I lend from my dad he had at work for a day. But I cant remember the company & type.



2) reflection
a pic of my favourite city Madrid. The place is in the heart of Madrid, Puerta del Sol. I went as far back as I could to take a pic of the whole building of the city hall when I discovered the reflection in that window and it turnt out more interesting than the direct view. Took it in Nov. 2006 with my Canon Powershot A530.



3) Walk in the Park
one of my favourite Weimar shots. This is right down the hill where I live on. The place is in Goethe Park in the the middle of the town. When you walk along this way youll reach Goethes Garden House in about the hight where the people are. Those who follow the Collage of Weimar thread, will know it as well. Took it in January 2007 with my Canon Powershot A530.

Sunset

That's what i can see from my balcony most days of the summer, i enjoy the view every time.


The Thing

This is a monument that was built to celebrate 1300 years of bulgarian history in 1981. It's designed to include the great people of our nation etc. Shame nobody noticed the bad design, and to add to that, because of a short deadline the construction was rushed and the monument started falling apart soon after the completion. They cant decide what to do with it, so it just stands there, surrounded by a fence so nobody gets hurt by a falling plate. Crap as it may be, it's got it's charm and looks postapocalyptic which is pretty damn cool


Serenity

Well i couldn't omit a pic from Vitosha which is definitely my favourite place. Gets me charged with energy every time.
