Tippy’s Famous Pizza, Hampton Road, Fremantle
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

A bit of a local iconic (well I am sure it has been here at least 17 years) and whilst it has changed hands over time it does seem to have a bit of a following in a world dominated by Dominos and Pizza Hut.

Only tried their pizza once, didn’t go back but really should go and see what the new owners are cooking up.

When I was in Rothenburg, the light was not as nice as you experienced. I didn’t have the schedule freedom to try for better light either earlier or later. I could maybe spark it up a bit with processing.

Yes we were lucky to get a sunny morning when I took the photos back in 2006. Here's another with the local urban transport...

Last Sunday I made an excursion to Wetzlar in the state of Hessen, Germany. Here in Wetzlar was the birthplace of Leica cameras.

During the Second World War, the city was the target of heavy bombing raids, which destroyed large parts of the railroad station district and other urban districts. Fortunately, the historic old town was largely spared from the attacks, except for the cathedral.

At the square "Eisenmarkt" one of the first pictures was taken with the first 35mm camera, which can be seen here on the plaque. So you can still see the past and the present.

The old town has many picturesque places and is truly worth a visit.

The cameras of the brand Minox, once the classic camera for spies, were also produced in Wetzlar. An oversized model is a reminder of this.

In the background you can still see the old Leica production and administration building, today the headquarters of Leica Microsystems.

Today production and service are located in the Leitz-Park in Wetzlar, with museum and gallery. This will be my goal for another excursion in autumn 2020.

Ruined foundations of the former PricewaterhouseCoopers building, demolished after the Christchurch earthquakes. It's turned into a bit of an urban seagull colony since... it's been ten years - hopefully they sort it out soon.

Had a very quick walk through my home town with the intention of doing my first bit of street photography since March... ended up with mostly urban shots as there was no one about!

Aah, the joys of Burnley. ;)
Nice to see you've still got some cobbled streets Chris.
And.....stay safe out there. :thumbup:

Cobbled streets in a town centre is quite unusual, I've not seen many in other towns and cities... I just try and avoid it in the car!

You sound like you have prior experience... have you been to Burnley?
