Organ

I’ve always wanted a picture of an organ. Many churches throughout Europe ban photographs, and running around a church with a tripod is not the most covert way to sneak a shot. Unfortunately, using a tripod is about the only way to get a sharp picture because churches are always so dimly lit inside. Fortunately, I was able to sneak this shot when almost nobody was there.

Schloss Pillnitz

I just returned from Europe last Saturday. I’ll try to post highlights of my trip as I go through all my pictures. Here’s the picture of the day:

The castle Pillnitz is outside the east German town of Dresden. There are actually several beautiful buildings in the castle park, and at least to me, they don’t seem like castles in the same sense as a fortress. At several points throughout history, the river Elbe flooded and parts of these grounds were under a few feet of water.
