(This is the view from my first castle. Real castle! The next few photos are from there.)
(There happened to be an equestrian tournament in town while we were there, in the park on the grounds of a palace. Sweet!)
(This castle just happens to be chillin' in the middle of the park.)
(These next few pictures are from the monastery where The Name of the Rose was filmed. Awesome!)
(Germania says: "Come at me, bro!")
(We spent a weekend in a castle hotel as a wedding gift from the family. Best thing ever! The castle ruins were amazing and overrun by nature.)
(These last pictures are from the cathedral in Mainz.)
It was an amazing trip, and this is only a tiny few of the photos we took. But they're a decent sampling of settings and patterns that got my creative mind going, so maybe they'll do the same for you. Bis später! (See you later!)
Enjoyed looking at all of the sights and textures you found. You say you "hadn't done much art" since you got back, but I know you've been exploring those wonderful Michelle Ward Gothic stencils.
It's clear from your Deutschland photos that the traceries and patterns of Germany are still very much in mind, so go with it!
The pictures are great! I love the flower growing out of the stones.
What a wonderful collection of photos - so inspiring. I love the painted decoration around the arch and on the ceiling - I've never been to Germany but in Austria I loved the way they painted similar designs to those on the outside of their houses. Looking forward to seeing your German inspired work!
Wow what wonderful pictures and fun trip.
