Sundown in Aachen

Looking west down Jakobstrasse, Aachen. The Christmas lights hanging outside are coming on. And behind me is the Christmas market.

Jolie perspective. Les décorations de Noël sont déjà  mises.
Ayush Basu: This is a scene from last year when I was there in Aachen, Martine. But it was the light that appealed me to take this shot.
A very nice shot, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Gracias, amigo!

This place oozes charm Ayush
Ayush Basu: Somewhat quiet and soothing, Chris.
Looks lovely in the evening light Ayush
Ayush Basu: It was the light that appealed me to take this shot, Bill.
I love this picture Ayush, great colours and perspective.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Chad. I am pleased you like it.
This is a lovely streetscape.
Ayush Basu: I am delighted with your response, Mary.
We are so getting ready for the Christmas markets, Ayush. This year we'll be in Brussels at the beginning of December!
Ayush Basu: That is great, Ginnie. I was there in 2008 and it was my second market (after Aachen) and these markets have always impressed me. I am sure you two will have a memorable time in Brussels.

It looks very neat and tidy - if this were England there would be litter
Ayush Basu: I think this is a problem seen all over the world though in varying degrees, Lisl. Even in Singapore (where heavy penalties are imposed), one would be surprised to see that littering has not completely disappeared.
I spent 4 days (3 nights) in Aachen back in 1976, I recall there is a magnificent cathedral there.
Ayush Basu: You are right, Brian. The Aachen Dom is over a thousand years old and is a designated UNESCO site.

I can't bear to think of Christmas until around 23 December! The build up seems to start earlier and earlier each year.
Ayush Basu: I am with you in that sense, Alan. But in this case the natural light is more the reason of taking this shot.

I like this scene very much withs he reflected light on the pathway.
Ayush Basu: This stretch of the cobbled lane is a beauty. I have another shot of this place in fall with fiery tones on the trees (which you now see bare), Alan.
wonderful framing with the back lighting Ayush... i love the sheen on the cobble stones....petersmile
Ayush Basu: I am delighted with your comment, Peter. I have another shot of this place in fall with fiery tones on the trees (which you now see bare).
This looks an interesting street
Ayush Basu: I spent about a year in Aachen, not too far from this lane, Martin. A thoroughly pleasant spot to pass by, every time.
Lovely light, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Precisely, Tom. Good time of the evening.

Great choice to shoot towards the sun, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I am pleased I did not bungle it, Ray.
a magical time of day...
Ayush Basu: A pleasure to have been here and be able to capture this, Larry.
This is very nice, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Absolutely, Elizabeth. I was fortunate to have spent close to a year around here.
