The world turned upside down – Weimar, July 2010

Some travellers like to experience a new city by rushing around and ticking off all the most famous tourist destinations one by one.  Me – I prefer to get a feel for a place by sitting at a pavement cafe with a glass of wine, enjoying the view and contemplating the rest of the world rushing by.

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister – all previously featured  photographs can be viewed on the Saturday Snapshots archive pages.  All photos featured in Saturday Snapshots are available to buy as high-quality greeting cards or prints in my RedBubble store. They make gifts, for friends or for yourself!

Love this shot. So original. Rushing around too much in a new city might make one miss what gives a place its own identity: the pace .

Very creative, well executed and it takes the wear and tear off one’s tootsies.

Neat shot – its one that someone has to examine rather than just glancing at. Good job!

@Meeta – absolutely! Wouldn’t be the same without the good girlfriend… And did you spot the hidden a-ha lyric?? ;-)
@valentina – I agree. My husband is all about rushing about whereas I think you hae to sit still to detect the essence of a place.
@Joan – thanks Joan! It certainly does (although the liver probably works harder ;-))
@fotographiafoodie – glad you liked it!

…laying on a quiet beach, with a good book, in the town directly beside the one the tourists flock to…
