Welcome to another edition of Photo Friday.

Coincidentally, today is also WORLD PHOTO DAY
See my entry HERE


The objective is to post your own images,
based on a prompt provided by the
Photo Friday staff.



These photos with shadows were taken Sept. 2013 in Soest, Germany, where I was born. The town has an ancient wall around it and dates back to Roman times. It was my first trip back in 41 years. Click HERE to view a video presentation.

  1. That looks a beautiful place! The shadows add to the photos. I enjoy taking photos in early morning and late evening just for fun, as the shadows are longer.

    1. Thanks, Clowie. Soest is beautiful, but I’m biased. 🙂 I was thrilled to see it hadn’t changed much in all those years. Shadows do make interesting photos. Have a good weekend.

    1. Soest is beautiful, but of course, I’m biased. 🙂 Europe is full of such architecture. That’s why I love it so much. Thanks for dropping in. Have a good weekend!

  2. Great photos and love your photo slide on YouTube! Some great pics of the old towers and these homes and streets….oh how I want to go there because every town shows something. In the early 1950’s my mom lived in Dortmund and the surrounding area.

    1. Thanks, Birgit. That video was fun to put together. Dortmund is ~45 minutes away from Soest by car and en route to my grandparents’ former home in Bochum. I know it well! 🙂 Have a good weekend.

  3. In the village where I live, there is also Roman steps and also part of a theater that is still standing. It is amazing how skilled the Romans were.
    Excellent pics.

  4. Hi, Debbie the Doglady!

    I looked at your World Photo Day picture taken during your trip to the Greek Islands and watched your video/slide show with images of your birthplace, Soest, Germany. It looks like a beautiful, clean town, one that is rich in history. It must have been a thrill for you to return to Soest after 41 years and find it looking much the same as you remembered it. That doesn’t happen very often. I don’t think I ever told you, but you and I share a link to Germany. I once traced my family tree and found ancestors that lived on Sylt, the northernmost island of Germany. That practically makes us brother and sister! 🙂

    Have a wonderful weekend, dear friend Debbie!

    1. Hi, Shady; Thanks for viewing my various creative endeavours. Going back to Soest was number two on the travel bucket list and visiting Greece was number one, so this was the trip of a lifetime. 🙂 Everyone loves their hometown and I’m no different. It really is beautiful and historic. Clean is the norm in Germany and all over Europe, there’s a great zeal to preserve history, so buildings are refurbished rather than demolished, in most cases. I was impressed how good my old apartment building looked – even better than I remember it from the ’60s. Interesting about your ancestors! I’ve never been to Sylt, but it’s known to be a playground for the wealthy. You have a good weekend, too.
