We’re back from a beautiful and relaxing vacation at the Baltic Sea. We stayed three days simply at the coast, then two nights in Rostock and four in Stralsund. Two of the most amazing architectural cities, I’ve ever seen. When I walked the streets of Rostock for the first time, I instantly fell in love with the hanseatic architecture. Since the fall of the wall 25 years ago, so much has changed in these cities. A lot of money was paid, so the buildings could be renovated. Almost every house is painted now in bright colors and looks like having build just two years ago, although most of them are over 60 years old. I was especially amazed by the little details and ornaments. Just look at the faces and little flowers or the sun with clouds door handle.

photo walk: windows | Berlin | momentstolivefor.com

It’s been a long time, since I did my last photo walk. Mostly because the weather wasn’t that photogenic and because I had other things on my mind. But today was perfect. We found the time to walk around the block in the golden hour. The light was magical and the shadows of the trees, made the photos particular interesting. At Prenzlauer Berg, a district of Berlin, most of the houses are very old and have therefore beautiful ornaments at the front. And everyone of them is a little bit different, some older, some younger. Love these differences side by side. It’s always worth to take a walk around the neighborhood.

round & round #6 in Prague

round & round #6 in Prague - The Prague astronomical clock | momentstolivefor

Such a beautiful city. So much gold everywhere. It’s surely the golden city: Prague, capital of the Czech Republic. We went there on our vacation, after visiting Vienna (Austria) and Munich (Germany). When we walked around the city and finally hit the Old Town Square, we were fascinated by the beautiful architecture and the golden and detailed ornaments everywhere around. No question, this was the perfect place for a round & round photoshoot.

“The Prague astronomical clock is a medieval astronomical clock located in Prague and was first installed in 1410, making it the third-oldest astronomical clock in the world and the oldest one still working.” (via Wikimedia). It’s an amazing clock with many little details to discover, like the figure of the Death on the side of the clock. We stood there over half an hour just looking for those beautiful little things, before we walked away, curious what this wonderful city would show us next.

round & round #5 in Vienna

round & round #5 in Vienna, Austria at the Stephansplatz | momentstolivefor

The Stephansplatz – the place to be in Vienna, Austria. You can visit the cathedral and go upstairs to have an amazing view via Vienna. Or you can ride on horse-drawn carriages around town or eat the famous Sacher torte in one of the coffeehouses. On our vacation we went within three days almost five times there, not always on purpose, but somehow we ended up there eating lunch or crossing it on our way to the tram.

While I waited at the Stephansplatz for my boyfriend on our last day in Vienna, who had a short business meeting, I decided to do the round & round photoshoot there. I found it extremely interessting, how the different styles of architecture stand side by side. Historical buildings like the dome or the old coffeehouse next to modern buildings with a steel front from the 90th or even younger. Nevertheless do I love old magnificent buildings more, with all their little details and figures and it was fun to search for these beauties.
