Photos around Bad Homburg tonight

Sunday late afternoon I stepped outside the hotel, for the first time in a week without a heavy backpack, and felt light as a feather. Got my mo-bility workin, was able to move along smartly in the 2-mile walk into the town center, and shot photos. If I haven’t mentioned it before (probably have), the Canon Powershot S95 little pocket camera is in a class by itself. I have it with me almost all the time.

A pretty spiffy live-aboard van (Not a VW, couldn’t see any indication of maker.)

  1. The van does look like a VW transporter (maybe a model from 5 to 10 years ago). They normally do have a VW badge in the center of the radiator but I have seen a few with replacement non-badged grills. It is obviously some ones pride & joy given the skirts and expensive wheels together with the live-in fit out!

  2. Very pretty VW T4 Transporter… it's a must. The van of my dreams. When my partner worked as driver-delivery man in a trucking firm, he drove a T4 which had covered 800 000 kilometers (500 000 miles) and the van was as good as new. On the road, travelling people used to ask him if it was for sale. VW Transporters have a reputation for being tireless. In Germany, they are less expensive than in France, that's why some people make the trip to this country to buy one.

  3. I'm on the lookout for an S95 too. I've got a Canon G10 at the moment, Which is also an awesome camera IMO.But the S95 still has manual controls. Although the G10 (now 11 and 12) is much more portable than my DSLR. I still don't have it on me at all times. The S95 is tiny – literally pocket sized. I hope to get one as and "every day carry" to keep snapping.
    Thanks Lloyd -your an inspiration as allways.
