Day 75 - Schifferstadt Architectural Museum

Schifferstadt Museum
Day 75 is in the books!  Some would call this a major accomplishment, but when you think that there are still 290 days to go in my challenge of photo walking everyday for a year, I still have a long way to go.  But nevertheless, I am proud of myself, and to tell you the truth, it has been relatively easy.  I have not encountered any insurmountable obstacles, my health has been great, and I live in a beautiful state with lots of great places to inspire me.

Today I chose to walk at the Schifferstadt Architectural Museum on Rosemont Avenue in Frederick.  Schifferstadt, Germany, is Frederick's sister city.

I love to find these on the
sidewalk.  I crunch every one
I find, and there have
been plenty of leaves this fall!
The museum was not open today.  Apparently they give tours on the weekends.  I want to go back when it is open to photograph the inside.  They will be selling art there this weekend, so there will be quite a few people there, I am sure.


I walked the paths that ran behind the museum, and soon I found myself at Baker Park downtown.  I had no idea that was connected.

Knowing that there was a fabulous ginko tree farther along Rosemont Avenue, I also went to find it.  What a display of autumn splendor!

I love taking these photo walks and learning more and more about the great area where I live.

  1. As an art student researching the work of the Impressionists, I have big help from this site called wahooart.com. It's like a good art library, where, convenient for me, works of artists are divided into art movements in history. Some of the works I had never seen before.
    As the canvas prints are affordable, I ordered online a little size canvas print of my favorite,
