Hildesheim Glass




Since this week's Tuesdays Photos is a "Glass" theme, I thought I'd give you an appetizer of what I've been working on since Saturday's little jaunt to Hildesheim, Germany--a stone's throw by train from Hannover. It's coming, I promise.

This particular photo is of one of the Rathaus (Town Hall) cellar windows. At first I was gonna PhotoShop off the black smudge on the left side and decided to leave it there to show it's proximity to the stairs. Guess you can't have one without the other! Kinda like Life!

  7. Tracie: I'll just have to add your link to my sidebar after that :) Thanks.

    MP: Hey, congrats to YOU for your Lamp prize! Way to go!! A celebrity amongst us :) We'll see about that JF guy. Donica liked his, too.

    JK: For now, this Tuesdays Photos is it. But I must say it's been fun :) Your entry is quite something. I didn't even know they had 3 winners till today!

  10. A camera is next on my list! I love all these amazing pictures. Those buildings(Wiki) in Hildesheim are magnificent. Getting to see parts of it in detail is indeed wonderful. Looking forward to the pics.

  11. I'm not sure at all that JK will win this one! No, no, no! The competition is getting harder! (Though I have to admit that JK's pic is outrageously good!)
    I love your pic Ginnie!
    Anyway, isn't it participating that's important?
    ........
    Anyway, I just hope I'll win the minimalist contest... :O)

  12. Ruth: HA. But it would have made a nice door anyway!

    Expat: Hmm. Those are the details (add-ons) that I always like reading about. I liked the colors and the collage of leaded panes.

    DW: You'll love having a camera! You'll go crazy with it (since you're a Gemini :). I think I'll have the rest of my Hildesheim photos ready today. At least that's the plan!

    Clo: You're right--it's been fun just to enter and see what everyone else has submitted. I didn't even know they had winners till yesterday and would probably die of shock if I ever even got 3rd place. HA.

  13. Stunning. That's one thing that always strikes me about being here - the artful detail lended to the mundane.

  14. Couldn't have said it better, Lisa!

  15. Oh my, I meant to post this in the post above. Oh well, guess I'm human. ;)

  16. Yes, Tim, you're human. Thank God :) I moved the original comment to the correct Hildesheim post. Nice we can do that, right!

  17. It looks very art deco, but after reading your post above, i'm sure it's much older than that era.
    Such a beautiful window to be at knee level.

  18. Yes, Madretz--come to think of it, it DOES look art deco. But you're right, it's probably hundreds of years older than that :)
