heidelberg on film

As I mentioned in my last post, Geoff was recently in Heidelberg, Germany for some work-related meetings at the university. It is clearly such a beautiful town, and I hope that I will be lucky enough to see it for myself one day. He brought me back a mug that is my favourite coffee mug now, with the university’s medieval emblem on it.

He took these shots with the Olympus Stylus Epic, which has become my favourite camera for quick snaps that don’t look like quick snaps, at least not to me. The LC-A+ that I once used so often, which produced similar photos, has been collecting dust for months... 





Look closely! Meow.








Lunch at a vegetarian restaurant called Red. The bag in the background contains a package of coffee we have been enjoying over the past couple of weeks.





There are many more pictures on his Flickr. Also, a private shout out to A & G (and baby G too)! You guys are awesome.

  8. Germany looks beautiful... I'm wondering if it's difficult to get around if you don't know German? (does Geoff know German?)

    1. Geoff knows a few words here and there and luckily was with some German speakers, but I don't think it was too hard for him. He studied it in high school but wasn't nearly fluent even then.

  24. I spent my sophomore year in college living and studying in Heidelberg. It's such a special place. Every night we would walk to the castle ruins and drink far too much beer.

    I just purchased one of your Endless Bummer totes from your Etsy shop. I'm excited to receive it! Thanks for the kind free shipping discount :)
