This week’s photo challenge is about photographic dialogue; about photos that in someway talk to each other. What I like about these two photos is the light. The lens flares look nearly like speech bubbles. Related posts: Weekly Photo Challenges Crossing the Untersberg in the Berchtesgadener Alps
Surprisingly enough this seriously frayed horse carriage was lying in the middle of a Swiss village. I came across it during my trek through the Valais. You can find more fray on the Daily Post. Related posts: Weekly Photo Challenges First impressions from an impromptu trek in the Swiss Valais
I captured several silhouettes of the Berchtesgadener Alps while I was photographing the sunset at the Stöhrhaus in June. This one though is my favourite. You will find more silhouettes on the Daily Post.
