Wedding Decorations

This is a photo of the shop display of a downtown decoration store. Since it's the wedding season, they have all kinds of wedding couples to put on the big cake here. On first sight they all look kind of the same but if you look closer they are quite different. There are even some for gay couples.

Happy Wednesday

Just a photo of a facade with the flower pots outside and some very durable flowers as decoration :). Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Theater by night

The Hessische Staatstheater (theater and opera house) is quite an impressive building. This photo has been taken from its back from the park side. Currently, they have a special event going on called "New Plays from Europe" presenting theatre productions from all over Europe.

Floor Tiles

I know this is more of an abstract shot but I couldn't help it. Taking photos for this photo blog just makes me pay more attention to details like this one :). Some of the older houses in Wiesbaden still have the original floor tiling like this one, which I think are quite interesting.

Street Artist

The pedestrian area is usually a place where you can watch all kinds of street artists, especially during the weekends. Painters like this one are not seen very often so I was happy to take a photo right away. He was taking a rest when I stopped by (you can see his feet in the photo though ;) ), which was a pitty since I love watching painters doing their artistic work. But I guess it was well deserved since he was doing good progress :).

Like going to the pool...

This is the interior decoration of a bar downtown. Everytime I go there, I feel like at a swimming pool (because of the tiles, I think) which is a desired effect since the bar's name is "Aqua". :)

Sculpture next to Congress Center

When I took the photo of the fountain in front of the Congress Center, I noticed this sculpture next to it, a bit hidden behind bushes though. Unfortunately, I cannot provide any background information since I couldn't find any so far. But I thought it looks a bit ghostly, being hidden like that with the green patina and the dark eyes... Don't you agree?

Doors No. 6

Thought this yellow facade with the brown door make a great color combination and contrast. Also look at the details of the fence!

Also check out my previous door posts: No. 1, No. 2, No. 3, No. 4, and No. 5.

Flower Greeting from Wiesbaden

Today, I'm sending you this flower greeting from Wiesbaden. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to post daily the past few days due to a full schedule and a lot of work but I'm trying to catch up now. Thank you so much for visiting my blog!

Summer night at the Kurpark

This shot is taken from the back of the Kurhaus, from the Kurpark. There were quite a few people out there in the Biergarten, trying to cool down from the summer heat.

Walking in the shade

Remember the trees I showed you in April, that were cut back and looked like hands pointing up to the sky? This how they look like when they're green and have leaves. They make enough shade on this pedestrian walkway so people can cool down a bit from the summer heat.

Photoshoot with Goleo

This giant Goleo maskot was standing downtown waiting to be photographed with everyone who was willing to pay for it. I sneeked into one of the photosessions ;). Unfortunately, mum was so excited that she got all blurry in my photo, but I'm sure the little lady turned out very well. :)

Cheering for Germany

Today was the last chance for us to cheer for Germany. It's been a exciting game - Portugal did great! Congratulations to the German team for winning the "small final" as people called it here!

Patio Decoration

On my way home the other night I noticed this cool patio decoration. Made a U-turn with my car right away, went back, took the photo and then went home. I think it was worth it :).

Wiesbaden Hauptbahnhof and Reisinger Anlagen

There is a nice park in front of Wiesbaden's main train station (Hauptbahnhof) called Reisinger Anlagen. From time to time, there's a circus stationed on the meadow or it's used for other events. In the meantime, the park is occupied with sunbathers (at least in the summer months), although it's so hot at the moment that even they are looking for shade...

Cooling down

Since it's quite hot over here right now, I'm showing you a photo of the fountain next to the Wiesbaden Congress Center. It's not really sophisticated but just sitting next to it was already totally refreshing.

Dedicated Soccer Fan

This dedicated soccer fan passed by me in the pedestrian area. I just have a feeling that he couldn't really decide what team he's cheering for - England hat, Italian flag around waist, and did you notice his socks in the colors of the German flag!?! I think he's really enjoying the whole World Cup!!

Flags for cars

Flags for cars are very popular over here right now, like on this car parked in front of the hessian ministery of science and art. Especially the German flags :). I read in the newspaper that somewhere in Germany the police had pulled over a car that had a 3 meter high (!) flagpole coming out of the roof... Can you imagine that??

Picnic surrounded by birds

This family wanted to have their Sunday picnic in the park, but I think their mistake was to start feeding the birds. All of a sudden they were surrounded by geese, ducks and all kinds of other birds.

Tegut - Bio-Supermarket

Today's City Daily Photo Blogger theme is "Supermarkets". Since my friend Maya is always interested in "green" developments, I decided to post a photo of a Bio-Supermarket for her. Tegut is nearly like a "regular" supermarket - only with bio products though. They have a very good fresh vegetable and fruit section and I especially like their meat and fish section! By now they've opened 310 supermarkets, last year they made 1.03 billion Euros revenue and continue with their success. :) I didn't have time to take photos inside, but next time I go, I'll show you some photos, promised.
