People, Years, Life in photo. Travel impressions. Daily life.


Bielefeld StreetEaster Monday in Bielefeld, Germany, was sunny and warm. Why Bielefeld? My daughter and her family with three kids live there. It is a little bit too far to see each other really often this is why Easter was good reason to go there. It was not the first visit of that city. There are many familiar things there but every single visit still a lot of hidden places and undiscovered objects. Green Door The most popular and loved place is Old Town in the center. All of it is a huge pedestrian area. Tourists and local people just walking around, smiling, laughing, talking, siting in cafe and restaurants with friends and families, and celebrate the Life. Watch that difficult to imaging why somewhere in the world so many unhappy people and trouble, sorrow and grief. Life is too short to make it miserable. Markt Platz Spring is in full power in Bielefeld. There are a lot of flowers; all the trees and bushes are dressed with young and tender leaves. Breeze stirs the air. Sun is playing on the shivering leaves and sending its rays in the eyes. People squint but do not hide from the sun. They enjoy warm and gentle spring light. Pond and Fountain Peace and Love reign in the city.

Because I'm happy

    • Thank you. All of us have different eyes this is why we see the same things differently. I think that is good.

    • Thank you, Amy, for visiting my blog.I am glad you like my pictures. The secret is simple – the faster shatter speed the more chances to capture moving object with no blur.

      • LOL I meant how you framed the little girl in the opening of the fountain. I understand shutter speed. I am a photographer. This is why I am laughing. Not at you. Just being silly right now. I was admiring your composition of the photo. I should have been more specific. [GRIN] xx Amy

      • Sorry Amy! I did not try to teach you with basic. It was hunting. To capture this little girl I made about ten shots. I like your sense of humor.

  6. Love the angles. That fountain shot is just brilliant. And great description of European lifestyle. It’s true. Over here in America, every movement seems to revolve around money.

    • Thank you, Rommel. European people can enjoy their life. It is true. They have big vacation, a lot of holidays and celebrations.
