Winter Wonderland

Here we are, at the tail end of oh-ten, and it’s mightily cold back home in Germany. Makes for scenic views, though – both in the countryside...

...and in the city. Here’s Hamburg’s harbor on a particularly beautiful winter day. Sunshine in the middle of December – all too rare in this part of the world.

Flare Is Art.

Lots of ice floating in the harbor by the Baumwall subway station...

...and downtown on the Alster.
