Heidelberger Schloss





Sitting with my back against the wall, Mitch and I gathered determination for a midnight hike from inside a glowing yellow bar in the center of Heidelberg. Looking down the establishment and through the giant front windowns I could see the castle glow hit the clouds. We climbed up the path to the castle gardens, walking through soaking orange patches of streetlight mixed with night. I saw the steps into the garden and the dark shadow where my dad hid and scared me over fifteen years earlier. So good to be back.

Man, Mikey... these pics make me so nostalgic for home. Cannot believe I haven't been there in 12 years - sometimes seems like yesterday - sometimes like it was all a dream. What a place to do some awesome growing up... completely amazing all the time :) Look forward to the day I get to make my first trip back.

Mike,

you create fantastic images. They truly tell a story at every post. I went to Heidelberg a few years ago, I have some friends that teach school there at the army base. Anyways, this castle is awesome. It makes me excited to go back in a few months. Great work as always.
