german november/december

Writing from Virginia Beach, where I haven’t yet taken a single photo with my big camera. Here are a few shots from Frankfurt and Nuremberg from late November/early December. Happy holidays!

barcelona I

My mom came to visit me last week, and after the first day in Frankfurt we jetted over to Barcelona to see about catching some sunshine. We got poured one for two of our three days there, but the first afternoon was pretty stellar.Read more
