Weekly Photo Challenge: Converge

Here’s a photo from a very old town called Luebeck, which is in Northern Germany and was founded in the 8th century. I thought this would fit with the weekly photo challenge.DSC05721

      • Yes thank you dear Mitza, I am fine. And it is such a wonderful sunny day here in West Cork, so great to be alive! Have a nice day too.

      • I’m happy to hear that you are happy to be alive and have such a wonderful sunny day in West Cork. Unfortunately it’s ugly, grey and quite cold here. Many greetings to Ireland which is still on my list to visit once. Regards Mitza

      • Das ist ja interessant. Ich war noch nie in Essen. Kannst ja vielleicht mal Fotos machen? Wir haben hier in Hamburg auch ein paar schöne alte Straßen. Hamburg ist sowieso die schönste Stadt der Welt für mich. Liebe Grüße Mitza

      • Hamburg finde ich toll. Würde ich gerne mal hin. Vielleicht klappt es nächstes Jahr.
        Na ja, Essen muss man jetzt nicht unbedingt gesehen haben. Gibt ein paar interessante Dinge, aber schön ist was anderes. 🙂

    • Hallo Jule, das ist ja schade. War leider noch nie in Kiel, aber Lübeck und Lüneburg eignen sich gut für Foto-Ausflüge. Wünsche Dir einen schönen Tag noch. Hier ist es recht kalt. Liebe Grüße Mitza

    • Yes, you are right. The marzipan from Luebeck is the most delicious sweet you can find on this earth. You couldn’t imagine how many different kinds of marzipan they offer. I would like to be locked into this shop for a night. The next day I would weigh at least 20 kg more, hehe. Thanks for your comment and have a nice day, regards Mitza

    • Oh, that’s nice to get some Gruesse from New Mexico, Cecilia. Have you been in Luebeck before or were you born there? It’s really a wonderful and charming little town and has the best marzipan of the world. Regards Mitza

      • Leider war ich noch nie in Lübeck, ich würde es gerne einmal sehen. Ich komme aus der Schweiz, lebe aber schon seit Jahren in New Mexico. Liebe Grüsse, Mitza.

      • In New Mexico zu leben ist ja auch eine tolle Sache. Das Wetter ist dort sicher wärmer als hier, aber Kultur gibt es natürlich mehr in Europa. Vielleicht ergibt sich ja mal die Gelegenheit, nach Deutschland zu kommen. Viele Grüße Mitza

    • yes, you are right. These towns have a lot in common. They belonged once to a certain grouping of towns at the Baltic Sea. I have been in Riga once, a beautiful similar town, too. Thanks a lot for your comment and have a wonderful day, regards Mitza

  1. Mitza, I finally found your post on Lübeck. Sorry for being so slow and thank you for providing the link! Looking at the picture created nostalgic feelings about images of Germany we rarely get to see out here in Western Canada. A beautiful image of Old Lübeck! Kind regards, Peter.

    • thanks a lot, Peter. It doesn’t matter. Getting old is not a shame, hehe. When I was in Vancouver and surroundings I thought the same like you. Being used to thousands of years of culture makes it sometimes a bit difficult to live in some countries that don’t have such a long history. Lübeck, Lüneburg and Hamburg and other towns really have wonderful old parts which I like a lot for photographing. Kind regards to Canada, hope you have better weather than we have (only rainy and grey outside, damp, terrible) Mitza

    • Thank you so much, dear Fabio for sending me such nice Shabbat greetings so often from San Sebastian. I’m sure we have nearly Florida weather here, too, 26 degrees C, sunny, nearly too hot. 🙂 Mitza

    • Thank you very much. We got quite a few wonderful very old little towns in Northern Germany which are nearly all looking similar. Even Riga in Latvia looks a bit similar and has a lot of very beautiful art nouveau houses. Thanks for visiting and liking. Have a nice day, regards Mitza

    • thanks a lot for all your thoughts about my photo. It was made with a rather cheap camera, but still is nice. You just have to bee there where the beauty is and have a sense for composition. Have a nice day, regards Mitza

  2. It’s a great shot, Mitza. How did you get rid of all the cars? –
    Always when I see perspectives like that I’m in a need for a crane truck 🙂 🙂
    Regards, Hanna

    • Thank you so much for your very kind words. Somehow this photo got most of the likes ever. I‘m happy that my photos could inspire you. I love poetry, too. Have a nice day, regards Mitza
