Guest Post by It's Simple Love

Friday, August 27, 2010


Hello all and Happy Weekend to you.  I am Rachael from It's Simple Love and I have the lovely honor of guest posting for Bridget today.  Bridget and I share the love of travel.  So for this reason, I decided to share with you some photos of Koblenz, Germany.  Though this isn't the typical side shown.  The photos above are a series of artistic portraits grouped together called Passers-by photographed by the talented Ivo Mayr's.

Ivo Mayr wanted to capture the city's character by photographing individuals, which he approached on the street.  He picked people who drew his attention by their clothes, vibrancy, and posture.  How fascinating is that?  If you were walking in your city and approached by a photographer would you let him take your picture? He used historical places and placed the people like "lost and found items".

I hope this helps you get to know the city of Koblenz, Germany a little more.  What can you infer from these photos about the city?

  2. I love these images! Maybe I am very boring but I think if I were approached on the street I probably wouldn't go for it...depends how it was spun to me I think. Cool to see you guest posting here!

  8. First of all- What an Awesome Blog!!!! This is my first visit.
    From the pics I would say the city is Very OLD from the Architecture- to the Narrow, cobblestone streets.

    And that GRAVITY doesn't play fair there!!! LOL.

    Great stuff. Do you mind if I follow along?
