My wife and I toured Europe in 1993, visiting Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The Europeans in this part of the continent have a nice custom of placing flowerboxes in or about their windowsills. I tried to shoot those that I happened upon. This particular one intrigued me because of the simple flowerbox and the beautiful storm shutter.
On a trip to Europe, in 1993, we stayed in Interlaken, Switzerland. Our first day there was rainy, with the clouds obscuring any view of the Alps. The owner of the little hotel we were staying at assured us that the next day would be cloudless. He was right. We went for a hike just outside of the town of Grindelwald. The colors are quite vivid for two reasons: 1) the film was Velvia and, 2) it really was that colorful there. (digital confession: can you see where I added a few sunflowers?)
