etherealmommy + chu_hi = Reunion in Munchen! [Jan. 22nd, 2006|04:33 am]

This was cool. Not only did I get to spend 24 hours in Munich, but I got to spend it with a good friend who has actually lived in Germany for almost a year, and understands better than me what the place is all about. On top of that, the weather was sunny and calm. (It was -2, but that's January for you.) We couldn't have hoped for a nicer day.

Look who it is! It's Laura!

Laura took the exact same picture, only better. :)

The St. Kajetan Theatine Church is ornamented with a Garden of Eden theme.

It's almost completely white inside.

The cupola above the pulpit.

As seen in etherealmommy's entry.

This little cherubim was actually freaking me out a little.

The St. Kajetan church had a spiraling shape motif, which could make one go insane.

We also wandered around a really cool pop-art gallery.

There's just nothing like an old friend.

Fujifilm FinePix F10

Fujifilm FinePix F10. And it is awesome! Very short startup and very short lag time; 6.3 megapixels; 1600 ISO!! (Also small w/large LCD screen, reasonably priced...)

My man, who selected the camera and knows more about the technical aspects, has written it up at .

I know! Something about arches - they get me every time. "Oh, Alexander, I see you beneath the archways of aerodynamics."

I forgot you were there, too! We'll meet up one day soon, for dirty big pints of stout.

That is one awesome camera! I just bought a SONY DSC-V3. I kinda wish now that I'd held off and bought that Fuji model! I saw your pictures too late!

I didn't realize I never replied to this post! hehe. Good pictures! I had to steal the one of you and I. I think you can see the detail a bit clearer from your camera.
Anyhow, I love how you put the birdies at the end...made me smile *alot*.
