Looking Forward, Looking Back...

This "promenade" along the river is a lot more popular in the summer!
(Right now, it's pure ice...)

Back in the 19th century, the place was used differently:

Mural painting in the Town Hall.

... Hm, I thought this was exactly the same bend in the river as on my photos above, but it turns out I was wrong about that! My aunt (born and raised in this town, and attentive follower of this blog!) telephoned me and pointed out that you don't see the church tower from that place, and moreover she had found photographic evidence in a book! My humblest apologies ;) even though I suspect it does not really matter all that much to my American and British friends... (It is still the same river, and the same town.) There were other paintings in the Town Hall that seemed to take liberties with the perspective of the church tower; and nearly all the old low wooden houses have been replaced with higher stone buildings since then.

Old black-and-white photo of the same place as that mural painting
(scanned from a book, and emailed to me by my aunt!)

How lovely it all is, and you have it from different seasons! My favorite picture is the second, with the flowers and the little palm and the georgous reflection. Wish I could be there this summer to stroll around it.

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
