Week 50 #40 Rusty


Back in Germany for this weeks post. We spent one of our days from our River Cruise exploring Regensburg on the banks of the Danube. Regensburg’s rich history dates back to the 2nd century. The city is unique in the fact it has never suffered serious destruction throughout its lifetime.  There are at least 1300 buildings listed of historic interest. Finding your way through out the older part of the city you encounter narrow paths and lanes leading you between the old buildings.  On one of the pathways I found a large rusty chain, padlock included, hanging on a stone wall. Obviously unused for sometime, it had collected quite a bit of rust.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.
