Pictures from Strasbourg (France).
I am still fascinated by doors and windows... especially old ones. Can you tell. What lies behind them? Who's lived there over the centuries...? Who lives there now?
We were in the Old Town part of Kaiserswerth in Germany (sorry no pics, as I didn't take my camera), and we walked through a little alley... they had a monastery there, an old church... and then, behind a big oak, you could see into the courtyard of an old brick house from a time gone past... and there, in the middle of it, were two little children with their tricycles, chasing their dad, and the mom was sitting a little ways off on a wooden chair, smiling and watching the scene. Such sacred happiness! And it is all safely guarded by the houses we call home.
