I seem to have developed a habit of photographing shop windows. I’ve only recently become aware of this, and have been thinking about it quite a lot. I think it’s because I love the interplay of items placed and framed deliberately — often with great care and at great expense — against the totally random nature of the world reflected in the glass.

Is it street photography? Abstraction? Or in the case below, self-portrait?

3. My “boys” with Francesco; street performer in Munich
4. The boys again. On the road up to Schloss Neuschwanstein, Bavaria
5 & 6. Views from the train; Munich to Fussen
7. Resedenz Garten, Munich
8. A perfect plate; macarons in a shop window, Munich

Not exactly wordless, but this last week pictures definitely speak louder than words.
We’ve been in Bavaria for the last couple of days, and yesterday went to the famous Schloss Neuschwanstein. It’s winter here and there has been quite a lot of snow. Coming from a Kiwi summer, this change of weather has accentuated the feeling of difference — best exemplified by the very different architecture of this part of the world.
Schloss Neuschwanstein: a fairy tale castle built high in the mountains.
Icicles hang from the roof of this house, in the village below the castle.
The inn just below the Schloss Neuschwanstein, perfect place to warm up.

With less than a week until we go on holiday, the boys are busy making lists of things to do and visit. The Big T is keen on the BMW museum in Munich, while the boy-child is looking forward to skating in Bordeaux.
I had such fun photographing our little toy BMW Isetta the other day (DP Photo Challenge – not quite to scale), that I decided to take a few more shots, and then of course I needed a skateboard.
Checking out the skate scene in Bordeaux is high on the boy-child’s list of things to do on holiday. Photo: Su Leslie, 2015. Shot with iPhone4, edited with Pixlr Express.
Not sure how I can represent my wish-list for our holiday. As long as I can find coffee, book shops and art galleries, I’ll be happy.
