The story behind the image

Alsace has several beautiful historic towns, and one of these is Colmar. We visited the old town with its narrow streets and old buildings late morning on a day in September.

Aas it had rained earlier, there were just very few tourists on the streets, and I found this building – the restaurant Le Fer Rouge – very attractive. It seems to be still the original building. Back in 2001, plants surrounded the patio. The plants have gone, but the restaurant is still in operation (just as the Chez Hansi opposite.)

I had brought just my tiny Kodak DC 4800 Zoom Digital, so the high resolution image size is not really “high” by any means. But the image quality is pretty good as it was still early days for digital photography.
