And you give us a beautiful path to walk along and a rather special place to arrive at too :o)
Nice shot Martina.

That tower looks like it would be a very interesting destination for a walk...

A splendid photograph...the approach to the church.
Are you enjoying the book? I've not read Toni Morrison.

Not usual in your work, I like it, it's well composed!

@all, sometimes one has to make something out of her own comfort zone (yes, your are absolutely right, Serge) - for me that means taking photos of landscapes etc. Nothing I do very often. In fact this one is funny - a bicyclist passed by and I turned around, fumbled with the camera and finally managed to get a glimpse of him before vanishing .... he is right there, you see him? ;-)

kobico, one of the small villages that nowadays form Mainz' boroughs - nice, full of old limestone houses and narrow streets. You just have to close your eyes to the development areas.

Tash, Toni Morrison's novels are always wonderful to read - I really lack the English skills to describe this - and even wonderful is the wrong word. Sentences to dwell in, descriptions that last for days in my mind ...

Thanks to all for the comments, :-)

Pleasant, typically German landscape.

Your comment was the last impulse I needed to order the "Song of Solomon"...
But the fine landscape was what drew my eye in.

Martina said...

Markus, one minute ago I quoted the last sentence of the novel. You know this feeling of sadness and loss when a novel is read, no more pages to turn, you have to go to the next book? And I am looking forward to hearing from you when you have read it :-)

Now this is a place I would like to walk. Look at the blossom.
