This feels like a wheel in the middle of a wheel.

Its a very fine vault, Ginnie...surprising that it is not cluttered with a wine bar spilled out on to the cobbles...
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ray, and you do have a point. I think the Rothenburg residents are very proud of this pass-through! It's one of their photo-ops. smile
Isn't that beautiful! Lovely compo Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Elizabeth.

This is full of charm & mystery too Ginnie with those curved roofs, doors & cobbles too
Ginnie Hart: It's a place of pride and joy for the Rothenburgers, Chris. And you can see why! smile

Yes, these are look- and pass- throughs the photographer might love - a wonderful photo with all the 'Laternen'!
Ginnie Hart: The Rothenburgers are very proud of this spot, Philine, and rightfully so! Hartstikke bedankt.

Fabulous picture of the pass-through, I love all the lanterns and that one window on the left. (the one in a angle)
Great colours and light.
Ginnie Hart: And it was so well lit by the natural light of the day! What a place. Bedankt, MLMA.

Wow, and some pass-through Ginnie, you could drive a coach and horses through there but you might have to knock that pillar down. What a wonderful wide arch.
Ginnie Hart: I can just picture it down through the ages, Chad, and possibly with many a coach with horses! Thanks for that thought. smile

Well there is light at the end of the tunnel
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Adrian. Well said.
This is a fine picture Ginnie. I love the handrails by those steps
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

Thats a nice pass through, wonder if it's well lit at night otherwise I would be reluctant to pass through.
Ginnie Hart: Good question, Aussie. Hmmm. I wonder.
I like that white light at the end of the tunnel.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mary. I do, too. Very symbolic.

A beautiful, ancient cityscape. I'd love to sit on that stoop and contemplate something (like the alley).
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Ruth. Ancient of days...and myriads of witnesses to the soul of the place! smile

Wonderful wault!
Have a nice weeksmile
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Helys!
Your perspective is perfect, Ginnie. You couldn't ask for a more charming pass through. I would be inclined to slow my pace and linger awhile.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Beverly. We did exactly that! smile
A lovely picture Ginnie, the old architecture is a treat! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Martin. I eat this stuff up! smile
Presumably this was "ob der Tauber"?
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Tom. I just found out earlier that there is a difference, so I will add that to my test.
It's all there, fine arches, cobbles, steps with unusual handrails, and that lovely lamp above the door. You were spoilt with this lot Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Brian. I was definitely spoilt! smile

You sent Astrid to chase all people? smile From the point as a building it is great and a definite photo-op. I can't help but miss people and gem├╝tlichkeit.
Ginnie Hart: Don't ask me why, Louis, but there were no people there when I took this. It was a weekend morning and I have a feeling everyone was at work or school. It would have made a difference, though, to have seen people for the shot, you're right.

Fascinating to see; such beautiful architecture. The column looks to be very much older then the surrounding buildings.
Ginnie Hart: It all totally fascinates me, Alan, since I'm not used to stuff this old in America!!! You'd think I'd be ho-hum about it after 3-1/2 years in the Netherlands, but. NO, I'm not!

Lovely stonework.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Cherry. I thought so, too.
A fine old street, Ginnie. It looks pretty ancient.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Graeme. Ancient of days, I'm sure. smile
Very nicely composed. What a cool place. You are so lucky.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Michael. And yes, we feel incredibly lucky!
A beautiful pass-through and quite old i guess.
In warmer climes these places are often nice and cool.
Ginnie Hart: Older than dirt, I'm sure, Wim, and surely a nice haven from the heat of the day. Bedankt.

Gorgeous series of arches. Love the sense of passing you have when looking through.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marcie. The Rothenburgers are very proud of this spot in their city, I'm sure. smile
excellent view point. i like cobblestones. what are those things on the wall, at regular intervals?
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ayush. I wonder if those thingies are holders for flagpoles??? I have no clue!

So...geometric! And, in such a pleasing manner. Nice one, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, dear Sue.
I wonder where it leads?
Ginnie Hart: From one street to another, Jacquelyn. smile
A pass-through from the weekend into the new week. Love that Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Friend.
