Thursday Doors – Türen am Donnerstag

This is this week’s contribution to Norm Frampton’s photo challenge Thursday Doors.

Please click to enlarge.

Ägyptisches Haus

Unfortunately Chapel Street was (and probably still is) too narrow for me to capture the whole house, very much to the displeasure of the eagle on top.

So I decided to shoot an extra photo of the upper part of the building. For who would admire just half a pyramid?

Egyptian House, upper part

For those who want to know more about the history I recommend visiting or resort to Google’s street view of Chapel Street.

Sunday Trees 236 – Alle Wetter! Good Golly!

This is my contribution to Rebecca Givens’s photo challenge Sunday Trees.

Please point to the first image to open the gallery and make the caption for each one visible. An alternative title to this blog entry could be „All Kinds of Weather“. In fact, that’s also an old-fashioned German idiomatic exclamation to express surprise: Alle Wetter!

P. S.: As bikerchick asked for details of the grey and white portal (third from top), it serves as Erfurt’s city museum (Stadtmuseum) now. It was built in 1607 and is called Haus zum Stockfisch (i. e. Salt Cod House). You can see the fish (still unsalted😉 ) on the sign above the portal, but here’s another photo:

Help Wanted: Sunday Trees 235 – What’s This?

January on the beach of Torre del Mar in Andalusia, Spain. Obviously these are palmtrees, even I know that, although I very seldom visit sunny lands.

But what is this fruit hanging from the tree in the street round the corner? I hope someone will be able to tell me. Thank you very much in advance!

What is this

And this is the bark…
