Old Germany

Captured near the rebuilt center of bombed-out Dresden.  This is part of a new textures tutorial I have going up  later this week!

Old Germany

Rushing Past German History

This reminds me of my best friend and partner who majored in 19th Century German History. I am sure he knows who all those people on this famous Dresden wall are. And what good does it do in our friendship and business? None.

The Bridge of Death

The bridge where they moved the excommunicated to execution…

I was there towards the late afternoon and there was an eerie red light in the sky over the blackened bridge.

The Gates of Saint Peter

This was shot in Dresden, Germany. Again, I was not supposed to be anywhere close to this area with a camera, but I gave serious nods to the right people and before they could get their bearing, I got enough shots to show everyone how awesome this place is!

Central Dresden

A perfectly clear day in Germany… although, truth be told – I prefer a bunch of crazy-lookin’ clouds!

Oh this old thing?

Triangles in Germany

This is from one of the city squares, which I guess is really a triangle, in Dresden.

Restaurant Row in Dresden

This is a narrow street full of restaurants near the big church in Dresden.

The Free State of Saxony

This is the Zwinger Palace in Dresden.

It was built when Augustus the Strong returned from Versailles outside of Paris after visiting Louis XIV. The Neoclassical architecture here is different than the baroque style through the rest of Dresden.

To the right you can see the art museum called the “Old Masters Picture Gallery” where I spent the afternoon. They had many Raphaels, Rubens, Canalettos, and even a Rembrandt there along with an array of work from other northern Italians.

Dresden Frauenkirche

This church was completely destroyed during the firebombing and was just rebuilt and completed late last year. I was very lucky to capture it without anyone standing in the middle of the shot!
