Shadow



I'm really not a big fan of that thing that has been build in front of the Kaiserthermen, so don't expect to find many photos of it here.

However, I did like this shadow cast on the west end of the building. Maybe it's the contrast between the beautiful, natural shadow of the tree to the, well, ugly-ass brick wall. (I really don't like that thing!)

Konstantin kommt!



Constantine is coming!

From June 2nd until November 4th 2007 there will be an exhibition on Constantine the Great in Trier, and there are no expenses spared when it comes to advertising this event. Aside from giant replicas of the Emperor's foot placed in strategic places all throughout the city (of which I will show you more of in the coming weeks), this countdown clock was installed near the Porta Nigra, showing how many days, hours, minutes and seconds are left til the opening of the exhibition.

And now which one of you math geeks can tell me when exactly I took this photo? ;)

Römerbrücke



Germany's oldest bridge is experiencing one of its hottest Aprils right now, which is not bad, given that it has been around for some two millenia.

And would you look at all that blue? There's not a single cloud in the sky!

Hot Stuff



I don't know where exactly this sign gets its data - I'm assuming some place that the sun has been heating up all day - but 33°C (that's 91°F) at the end of April? That's hot!

The Wait is Over!



Have you, like this dog, been sitting at your window every day for months, waiting for word on the return of Trier Daily Photo?

No? Well, looking at the photo again, the little fella does sport more of a "Yeah, I could go outside for a walk... but it's nice in here, too!"-attitude. Or maybe he spotted another one of his kind down on the street and wonders just where he's seen him before.

Dogs can be hard to read sometimes. After all, they're only human. What do you think he's thinking?
