Heidelberg castle by ChemicalAlia Heidelberg castle by ChemicalAlia
Oh, hah. Germany. I took like two steps and tripped over some castles.

Like, two years ago.

Oh man, Germany? It's a dream to go there one day. Hell, to travel all over the world. *_*

This is such a lovely photograph. Very admirable shot and angle; really shows off everything from a single perspective. :3

Oh really, anywhere in particular in Germany? Castle Heidelberg is interesting to photograph, since parts of it are ruined (blame the French), and whole walls are missing, which gives it a really flat look.

It doesn't matter where in Germany. I would like to see Castle Heideberg and the Berlin Wall, however. Maybe in the future when (hopefully) I'm a singer, I'll have a concert or two there. :)

Ooh, good luck. Do you speak any German?

No, but I've sang a couple of German songs before in past choirs. It's a difficult but fun language to sing. ^_^

That's pretty neat. I can't sing in any language! More of an INSTRUMENTS person.

I use to play piano when I was younger, but procrastination kept me from fulfilling great playing. Singing is my calling, with writing right behind it. :)

I took piano from 6 years old, violin from 9, and the pipe organ in high school, though I like to overlook my time spent in the marching band with mallet percussion because it was ewwww. I also majored in music composition for like, two minutes once. Hopefully you can do something with both, then.

Lucky you, I've never been out of the Northeastern United States. XP

I turn 20 next year, and I can count on one hand the amount of family vacations we took when I was a child. All to neighboring states.

Ah, sounds a lot like my boyfriend. He lived in California until he was 4 or 5 before coming back to New Jersey, but spent the rest of his life since then hardly leaving the tri-state area. Hopefully you'll get the chance to travel around some day.

Heh heh, I'd hope so. One of the careers I'm looking into involves moving to Japan. XP

But, I feel it's kinda like that movie The Truman Show, the guy was never able to leave the island because of some unexpected accident or something, but the creator didn't want him to leave at all.

I feel it's the same with me, every planned trip that's made by my family or a school that takes place more than 4 or 5 state boundaries away always falls through.

I've been planned to go to St. Louis, Cleveland, band trips that were cancelled due to unexpected events at the last minute.

Ever since my siblings and I were quite young, my father always said we'd go to Disney World one day. We're aged 22, 19 and 17 now, and that trip has never happened.

We were also planning to go on a cruise to Bermuda. It was later learned we actually didn't have the money by the time we started booking for it.

I actually also planned on interning in Florida for 5 months, and that had to get shafted, as I lost my financial aid for college, and I'm forced to take this semester off.

So, yeah, things get talked about, and when they start to get off the ground, they stall and crash back to earth. Because it's happened so much in my life, it gets frustrating enough to get all emo about it. =/

Very nice shot. The angle is great. I love how the bush looks in contrast to the building there.

I went to school there a couple years ago, and before that with my sister to visit friends. Of course Heidelberg is wonderful, but so expensive!

Thanks! That's what I liked about this photo, tool. I was just going through files on my computer, and realized that I never got around to posting some of my old photos. I may have had the world's crappiest camera at the time, but I really liked some of them.

Old buildings usually have a lot of character. Even places that didn't originally look interesting, usually look really cool by the time they're run down and old.
