Last Saturday Karen needed to go into Munich to collect and ship books for a client. For the collecting, carrying and packing she needed some help, so I took the opportunity to practice with the Fuji X100. I only had moments within the two hours we were there, but that was enough for some benefit.
Expecting sun, we ended up with rain. Having planned on visiting a new area of Chiemsee, we gave up and returned to where we have been before. Managed to get some street photography shots in the rain.
I have gathered together information that I think will help photographers visiting Munich. The main aim being to make your visit more enjoyable, productive, safer and cheaper.
Munich West Park is a former Garden show grounds that has been turned into a park for the local residents. Remnants of the garden show event are still there. A Japanese garden, various pagodas from Thailand, China and Nepal and many of the flower beds and rose garden can still be seen.
The Deutsche Museum Verkehrszentrum (Transport) is a part of the Munich science museum.
I have done a previous video on a walk of the north shore of Chiemsee. However this is a video having taken one of the boats that goes from Prien.
I'm not religious by any stretch of the imagination, however the art and architecture of churches is something special. Here are a few samples of local churches in our area.
Sometimes interesting photographic opportunities are just outside our front door. This album is a combination of two local walks in winter and gives some idea of the landscape to visitors.
Bad Reichenhall is a town that has produced salt since the beginning of time. Nestled in-between imposing mountains, the town is an unusual mixture of industrial and elegant architecture. - In this video I show the town, the salt works, a little street photography and the hotel lake area.
Similar to the collection of old farm buildings at Amerang, this is a smaller but different collection. It is a bit more open and less full of buildings. Nonetheless the collection is impressive and the opportunities are interesting. For the other video on Amerang, a similar farmhouse museum see: Flickr Album: https://www.flickr.com/gp/alex_jackson-smith/506290 Enjoy. Alex.,
