A Snowy Night In Downtown Denver


A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of returning home from Germany for about a week and a half.  Like most of my trips home, it was a brief little sojourn, but I did get the chance to do something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now: give Denver, Colorado the treatment I’ve given to Amsterdam, Bergheim, Cologne, the Rocky Mountains, Prague, Paris, Native American ruins in the New Mexico desert, and most recently, Bruges.

In other words, spend several hours drinking beers and taking pictures, and then spending several more hours sifting through the thousands of pictures and making a little movie out of them…

Fortunately enough,there was a steady snow falling on the evening I picked for my little photo shoot, and that turned Denver into a multitude of postcards.  So take a few minutes and have a look around my hometown, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed…

So that’s my little Denver video….  I hope you enjoyed it.

A little clerical note.  Hardocre followers of my blog know that I generally select a nice header image for each post, and further, that I didn’t do that this time.  Well, that’s because my generic header, the beautiful shot you see above, was taken about 2 years ago in downtown Denver.  Also, the background sunset you see is Denver.  I suppose it’s kind of telling that even after setting foot on 4 continents both permanent images up in here are from Denver, Colorado.  The more you know…

Anywho, come back soon for more Denver, Bruges, and witticisms.

Don’t be a stranger.

A Night in Bruges


Alright.  It’s time.  It’s time for some pretty sweet pictures of Bruges, Belgium.  In case you missed it, I recently headed from my little German host-town up to this place to you know, see it.  And I was blown away.  Now it’s not the most amazing, vibrant city ever, and it’s certainly not a city in Europe that gets a whole lot of attention.  But, it was breathtaking.  Have a look if you don’t believe me…

And this here’s the tower from the movie In Bruges….

Love this shot. All the little alleys and streets were gorgeous.

Pretty cool. This little stretch of the canal was actually on a lot of the Bruges postcards we saw.

I guess this is a decent place to take a picture. A big photography class walked in and set up shop. You can see them in the corner there.

All the canals were unbelievable. Especially on a still night.

I’ll leave you with this. One of my favorites.

This city is like an amateur photographers dream come true.  Especially with all the canals and the way they light up the entire old town area of the city.  Beautiful place, if you ever find yourself in Northern Europe, do yourself a favor and stop and have a look.

Come back soon for a little walking tour of Bruges, and a few long-overdue posts about my home town, Denver, Colorado.

Don’t be a stranger.
