The 2012 Travel Project: January 2012, Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

We're off to an auspicious beginning here on the 2012 Travel Project with the 1st entry for January 2012 (yes I am very late...did you even read the last article...I know)...Luxembourg City, Luxembourg.  I must admit, I am relying on people being a little kind on this one...I am cheating a little here in that Luxembourg is technically a grand duchy, not a country...but hey, it has all the criteria (royal family, flag, government..etc), so lay off!

Anyhoo...this being my photo blog and all, I am not going to spend to much time talking about the place and instead just focus on the pics.  If you want more info on our trip and what I thought, go to my other blog and check out "Eric's Uninformed Travel Tips: Luxembourg Edition" ( So let's see some pics...

This first one is of one of the more picturesque bridges in Luxembourg City.  I always like to try and experiment with the layout of my shots and honestly, the more I look at this one, the less I like it...but oh well, here it is...enjoy :) Taken with a Tokina 11-16 F2.8.
Diagonal lines...Still not my friend
 I really do love this shot, especially the reflection of the building in the background and the mossy stairs heading into the calm water...tres cool...Again, I feel like I could have done it more justice by lining the angle of the bank paralell with the right side of the frame but, you live you learn.  Taken with 'ol faithful (our film zoom lens).
I am a sucker for a good reflection
 Finally, I love this one more for the subject than anything else.  This church was carved into the side of one of the many cliffs in Luxembourg City (see my other blog for more details on this).  I really like how the roof just disappears into the rocks. Also taken with 'ol faithful.
If I was a hobbit, I'd live here
And there you have it...That was our only trip in January, so next up February...I wont reveal it yet but the locale is famous for beer, chocolate and cartoon reporters.
