It was a slight cold rainy day of February when we visited Heidelberg, Traveling Germany. This is a famous college town in Baden-Württemberg (South-West of Germany). It is considered with good reason one of the most beautiful towns in this country. A great place in the world to be even in a rainy day 🙂
The weather was not perfect for walking in the street and taking pictures, but I still snapped some photos in the central plaza. I really hope to come back some day and see more.
These pigeons were trying to stay dry and warm. I noticed them from our hotel window in the central plaza of this historic German city. In Europe pigeons are part of the urban life. It is so common to see them sitting on the old medieval walls, arches or statues and I always like to watch them.
Hiding under the arches of the building across the street, they were making a nice contrast with the antique red color of the stone wall. They were just begging for a picture, so I couldn’t resist and took it 🙂
The pictures are available as art prints in my Fine Art America Germany collection, on various media, and sizes for wall and home decor, accessories and gifts. They can look like this:
