Neither the pic nor that building is particulary pretty, but me and the orbs celebrate today that the freedom of panorama in the less weirdly restrictive european countries is not in accute danger any more! :) / Weder das Gebaeude noch das Bild sind von besonderer Schoenheit, aber die Orbs freuen sich heute zusammen mit mir das Panoramafreiheit in jenen europaischen Laendern, die nicht die Hose mit der Kneifzange zumachen, wieder sicher ist! :)

I really like the enigmatic feeling of this photograph: where, when, why, and who are those people?

Nearly frontal sun, barely hidden behind a rocky ridge, and parts of some really huge touristic facilities on a busy famous mountain overlook... that's hardly an enigma, under regular circumstances it would be not even amusing, just an architectural snapshot at an unfavorable time of the day... :D

I like this shot a lot, Sonja. The light is amazing!

Julia Reda did a good job there, didn't she? I signed a petition against the proposed EU plans a month or so ago. Glad it's off the table. It was an unholy plan.

I am not really convinced allerting all those greedy economy oriented politicians to the fact there are as many different laws here as nations was such a great idea. It turned out okay with for now everything staying as it was, but only because of those of us who learned of it in time, wrote to reps and signed petitions. It is true, with luck we can get an unified law now and end that weird circumstance that france, begium and itally are criminalizing in theory millions of harmless tourists, even if the crime caused only by bad senseless language goes unenforced and most tourists are not even aware they commit it, still putting modern landmarks into their blogs and on photo sites for innocent non-comercial fun. However, now that it is all rolled out a second time around, we in the the easier going countries still are in danger to loose freedoms at home, even if we might win freedoms and security of rights during travel inside the EU. :(

Oh don't talk to me about the EU, Sonja. You really don't want to do that. I can rant about it until I'm blue in the face... But at least this bit of legislation was turned around and hopefully those three countries will come around too. It's ridiculous.

Okay, getting a blue face from ranting does not help with recovery, I guess -- so no EU! The situation wont stop to suck from us discussing how exactly it sucks anyway. :D
