We just returned from a visit to Germany for our daughter's wedding. Of course, that was the highlight of the trip, but we did have some time for sight seeing as well. A very impressive and beautiful country to visit!

Greg,

Dieses sind schöne Bilder! These are beautiful pictures!

I've been to Bavaria twice. Unfortunately the beer is so good there I don't remember very much!

(Hmmm...maybe it was three times!)

I was at Neuschwanstein back in 2002. On that trip I shot 6 rolls of Kodachrome with one of my Minolta XL-401s. I was standing in one of those three triple windows flat in the wall and I decided to shoot the scenery outside. (-which was perfect for Kodachrome!)

There was a fellow standing next to me, and when he heard the mechanical grind coming out of my "camcorder" and realized what I was actually doing this look of shock came across his face.

I don't know if he spoke English or not, but at that moment the poor guy was completely speechless!

Steve,
You are right on, the click of the film camera shutter is now an anomaly. Today, with cell phones and digital cameras there is no distinctive sound to tell when/if the picture was even taken! It is something that continually bugs me...maybe there is an app for a "fake shutter sound" for cellphone pics that would help relics like myself.... [Wink]

Hi Greg,

There's a story on the 'net that the shutter sound on the I-Phone was recorded from a Canon AE-1. I thought it was familiar! (My Dad had one.)

I don't like the ergonomics of using a cell phone as a camera: it's like taking pictures with a bar of soap!

-but I can't complain about having a camera with me basically full time.

When you were in Munich, did you go to the Hofbräuhaus? We have a local one in Manhattan, but it's a pretty pale shadow of the real thing!

Don't digital SLRs still have the sound of the viewfinder mirror moving when you press the shutter?

Hi Steve,

Yes, we were able to go to the Hofbrau Haus in Munich for lunch/beer/giant pretzels--another very neat historical place dating back to the late 1500's. Everywhere you go in Germany there are old buildings which are still in use today and we found this quite a contrast from what we are used to here in the Midwest.

Brian,
I think you are correct on the digital SLR's. My wife did not bring her big camera on the trip....just the pocket one and the "bars of soap"... [Smile]

Our very first day there, and as a matter of fact the first moment either of us ever stepped on European soil, my wife and I flew over from New York on the Red-Eye. We were bone-tired and jet-legged, so we did the sensible thing and picked up a rental car and drove a hundred miles per hour in a place we'd never seen before!

We got to my Aunt and Uncle's house and said our hellos: they sized us up and sent us to bed for a couple of hours.

That night they took us out for drinks and we walked downstairs into what was once a wine cellar. My Uncle told us the building was well over a thousand years old.

For somebody from the New World, this was pretty impressive!

I like traveling this way: we live with a real family (actually our own) and see what real life is like there. Sure: we saw plenty of museums, castles and bier halls, but we also went to the "Supermarkt" and heard how everybody's day was around the dinner table. (Sie sprechen Englisch!)
