    Right, I've decided to share a few of my favourite pictures that I've taken, starting on November last year.
    Some pictures are not here, but in the "Mobile Phone Pictures" thread, so make sure to check those out too.

    I'll be posting one theme every time I visit, with the last theme being those that don't fit into a theme.

    This is the Autumn Path theme (photos taken in Berlin and France in November 2012):

    It was actually our group. I think it's nicer seeing them than the cars behind though, which would clash with the living autumn feel.

    Berlin is a very large city and it has some very dirty and ugly areas. That is a street just off a huge green that had some palaces on, etc.

    Today's theme is cold (snow and frost):
    The last remaining weeping willow at our school (we have loads of other trees):

    This is why the other 3 or 4 were cut down:

    And this is one of my favourite photos: a frosty rose, the second time we had frost last winter.

    I live somewhere near the coast but not on it, Druid. That's why I tend to go a bit gaga over seaside photography. :D

    I think that nobody in Belgium can be more than 3 hours from the coast, which is only 60km long (at least we have one).

    Today's theme is the continuation of memorials (I love [war] memorials, I have so many pictures of them but decided to only share recent pictures):

    The Jewish Holocaust memorial in Berlin. Amazing place with stones going from ground height to almost 3 meters high, the ground dips and rises randomly.

    The Catacombs in Pierrefonds castle (where they filmed the BBC series "Merlin").

    That might just be the reason why I like the photos so much.

    The crypts were huge: three large halls full of statues like that, all in the dark.

    Sometimes we see cars like those going down the road. Somebody around here actually bought "the batmobile" from one of the old batman films believe it or not. Sometimes we see the batmobile out on the road occasionally too...lol.
