France and Germany Photos from Dan Madio

July 28, 2010 at 11:51 am 1 comment

It’s always fun to look at the photos that other passengers took from the same trip you were on—you find that they discovered stuff that you didn’t see, or that they saw the same thing you did, but in a different way.

I just finished looking at some Paris/Bavaria/Oberammergau photos that Penn State traveler Dan Madio posted to Snapfish. (Dan is the same guy who captured a video of the Eiffel Tower light show with his iPhone 4.) With his permission, I picked about 30 of my favorites and have put them into a slide show for you—see below.

Dan and his wife, Jane, went to some places I didn’t get to, including Paris’ Sacré-Cœur Basilica, where he got some gorgeous shots, and the Musée de l’Orangerie, where he took some photos of Monet’s water lilies. Dan also did a great job of capturing the narrow streets and old-world feel of places like Kaysersberg, Riquewihr, and Bamberg, and he visited a cemetery I didn’t get to see: St. John’s Cemetery in Nuremberg. He even has a nice portrait of our bus driver, Horst Ehrlein.

Dan has a nice eye—and a better Nikon than I do. Not that I’m jealous or anything. :-)

Thanks to Dan for letting me share these with you.
