Spring walk downtown

On a spring Sunday afternoon, everyone is out for a walk in our hometown. People sit in cafés, a blanket wrapped around their hips and legs, because it is not really warm yet! It is warm in the sunshine, but an icy cold wind lingers and kept us from sitting outdoors, we walked to stay warm.
Lovely photo light! I hurried to take the picture with the evening sun on the baroque facade. It changed within seconds.

We took an elevator up to the eighth floor of a design house. There are furniture and kitchen shops on every floor, and in some parts you can see that it is an old store building.
We had a nice view over the city from the roof -- I took the photo behind tinted glass which explains the green sky.

Sunny but not very warm here too!

...but there's always a surprise...

...like a beautiful pheasant strutting around on my patio this morning :-)

Never had one of THOSE here before!

What a lovely way to spend the day. Cool or not, the sun is a welcome sight.

Lovely photos! I can imagine how nice it must be to walk there. It's cold here, too.

I enjoyed your photos very much Eva!
Feels like I was walking with you! The play of light and shadow is wonderful and you sure have an eye to find beauty everywhere! Your love for color is always evident - those red and turquoise brick walls are a marvel!
