Random Europe Downloads, Day Three

As you read this, or sometime before or after - today, anyway - we return to Dallas. We fly through London Heathrow during the G20 summit - great choice on my part - and then to Dallas. This is the last of the "random downloads". I'll get myself organized to comment and post appropriately at least by the end of the week. I know you will not hold your breath.

While we're flying across the Atlantic and you are reading this, if you haven't become a follower of this blog or the others you read, feel free to do so! We love company here at Ate Up Amateur! Over there to the left is a box where you too can be featured as a follower of this blog. What's more, if you sign up to read all your favorite blogs, when you sign in, all the updates are there for you in one place - simplicity. Give it a try!

Once again, wonky spacing. Sorry!

And, I do have a new April header, but it'll have to wait until I'm stateside. So April Fool's on you. It isn't really still March for most of the world. But, here at Ate Up Amateur we'll lengthen it for one more day. OK, on with the show.

A very overexposed photo of S in Amsterdam.
This is the period of time when the camera was on the wrong setting.
This sculpture is in front of the Rijksmuseum.

This is out our hotel window in Bielefeld.
It was snowing. That was the point of the photo.
Not very effective.
The city, however, I can report, does exist.

We lit a candle in reverence at the Cologne Cathedral.
There WILL be other posts about this place.

The newest stained glass at the Cologne Cathedral.
Designed by Gerhard Richter in 2007.

The Brandenberg Gate from the old East Berlin side.

Some lovely blooms we passed as we walked between the
Brandenberg Gate and the Reichstag, Berlin.
We did not go in the Reichtag, sadly.
The line was days long.

A tribute to Mozart in Vienna.
Don't you think a treble clef of pansies would look nice in my yard?

A cool gate, and a cool building through the cool gate.
On an overcast day.
I chose to leave the tree in the shot.
Now I'm not so sure that was a good decision.

OK, so that's it for now. Until I'm back on American soil...
