2-5549 Hotel Facade

Bamberg, Germany, March 25, 2012.   There was a time when getting on an airplane to travel somewhere was exciting and a thrill.  I got that out of my system over 30 years ago.  Today, my idea of travel is throwing my camera gear in the truck, then driving somewhere in the great American southwest. …
