From Different Angles

I have always admired how people present their photographs of sometimes the most mundane everyday ordinary images with such fresh and unique perspectives.  In this week’s DP Photo Challenge, Cheri asks us to show an unusual point of view (POV).  Here’s my take on this:

We were traveling through Germany last July. One of the towns we visited was Regensburg, along the Danube River.  Late in the afternoon, we were told about a small restaurant that sold the best Regensburg sausages with their homemade sweet mustard. The establishment has been there for several centuries, they said, as early as the 14th century.  We just had to check the place out!

It turned out the sausage place was right at the base of the famous Stone Bridge (Steinerne Brucke), that connected the old part of town to Stadtamhof since the 12th century.

Here’s a couple of photos of the bridge from different vantage points, on the bridge, below the bridge, looking out from the bridge on both sides…..

    Great pictures, Mary-Ann, of the bridge from different perspectives. Really amazing how old this bridge is. It is said that the large medieval centre of the city of Regensburg is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. So apparently it is a very old city. There are many places in Germany that I’ve never seen and for sure would be worth a visit. From one of the related articles I copied the following:
    “Regensburg, Germany
    This town experienced little destruction from WWII, leaving the medieval city preserved. Regensburg is a UNESCO World Heritage site, the home of Oskar Schindler (“Schindler’s List), and the former home of Pope Benedict XVI. BMW and the University are the largest employers. It was here that the Roman’s built the first bridge across the Danube.”
    On one of your photos it says that the pillar was blown up on 25.4.1945 and rebuilding took place in 1967. Germany capitulated on 8.5.1945. This means the bridge was damaged just a few days before the end of WW II.
    Thanks for sharing your lovely pictures, Mary-Ann. I guess you liked the Regensburg sausages. 🙂
