Finally starting the theme I had intended to post, but bumped it to show solidarity for Paris. Over the next few posts, I will feature Berlin in Black and White.
These pictures were taken from a trip this summer. It was a fun weekend. Berlin is always fun. The weather was cool for July and rainy, which made for excellent B&W pictures.

I am very thankful that smart phone cameras are good enough to take daily good shots. I was on a business trip to a conference being held by Deutsche Post in their headquarters tower in Bonn, Germany. The building is glass and is the tallest in Bonn.

Since then I have always wanted to go and see the town. I recently had the opportunity to visit Annapolis with my parents. The town did not disappoint. It is historic, quaint, and friendly. I particularly liked the old brick architecture. I am glad I was able to make my own fond memories in this town.

I thought it would be appropriate to wrap up the New York City theme with this skyline picture. This is also one of my top 5 favorite pictures, as it was the first time this type of picture turned out the way I wanted it to. The Manhattan skyline is breathtaking and the blue, the building lights, and the reflection on the water make for an awesome postcard-like picture.
