bursts into color,
during Palm Sunday full moon.
all over the city,
while city squares erupt in color!
Strasbourg itself is full of color,
both in the buildings and the rivers.
Jim adds to the colorful variety,
while Strasbourgians bring the color indoors!
Cheers to you from the stunning old city of Strasbourg~

Thank you. It is an incredible city~
Merci beaucoup mon ami~
Oh Cindy, we do love Strasbourg. We had an amazing meal in one of their lovely restaurants that we’ll never forget. Such a charming part of the world.
Yes, it is a gorgeous city with incredible food, so I well understand why you love it!
I love these old cathedrals! Wonderful pictures, thank you so much.
Thank you more for the lovely comment!
Beautiful photos Cindy!
Thank you Brad & cheeers to you my friend!
the thriving wisteria.. wow.. xxo
I know and it is all over the city. It was extremely hard for me to limit the post to 10 photos because the city is so gorgeous and full of blooms!
Very good photos of this beautiful city. Thank you and have a nice evening, Cindy 🙂 Greeting Alexander
Greetings and thank you Alexander!
Great photos, Cindy 🙂
Hugs to you Irene and be well my friend~
Cheers to you Bette and thank you!
Patterns and beautiful designs, Simply beautiful…! 😍😍
It is just sensory overload. It is such a beautifully designed old city. I have too many photos because it is too beautiful.
I too would be capturing it all if I was there ☺️
I would love to see your photos and videos!
It truly is. Thank you~
Amazing photos. All of them colorful, without equal. You leave that feeling of looking at a work of art because your eyes know how to capture beauty.
This kind and lovely comment touched my heart. Thank you very much. <3
I like feeling Europe’s texture so much.
I do too. It is so very different from home~
The Wisteria took my breath away Mom’s place has a beautiful one someone else will now own 🙁
How bittersweet for you. Hopefully they will love it and care for it like she did. Hugs to you Eunice~
Great images. I can feel like I’m visiting these places with you through the post.
Some of the most amazing travel we ever do is in our minds! I am so happy you are mentally traveling! It is good for your soul & psyche~
Beautiful captures, particularly that Wisteria – how absolutely glorious!
I love wisteria too and this city obviously agrees with us!
Bring it on! Thank you Strasbourg~
Wow! So beautiful!
A visually mesmerizing city!
I nearly leapt into that image with the Wisteria blooms!
My husband says it is psychotherapy office which is hard to believe as it is in the middle of a river. If it is, I would consider going back to work! 😉
So nice of you to share such beautiful sites I will, no doubt, never get to visit. Magical!!
Visa versa 2UX2 Gary & cheers too!
So vibrantly colourful… !
Yes, it lifts your spirits!
One of my favorite cities, Cindy. Beautiful photos!
I can fully appreciate why it is one of your favorites!
I can’t imagine seeing that in person. Your photos take my breath away! Magnificent! 🙂
I wish I could beam you over right now! <3
Maybe if we concentrate together real hard! LOL! <3
Stunning imagery. The Alsace-Lorraine region was my brother’s favorite part of Europe.
He must have enjoyed excellent food and gorgeous old towns! <3
Wow!! Just amazing. I’m telling my to pack her suitcase. ☺
Wonderful! Hope she does!
Spring is the best time to travel! Fresh beginnings!🤗🤗🤗
Indeed, and today is the first day the European heat wave seems to be ending~
Absolutely spectacular, both the human-made and the nature-made!! <3 You always brighten my day, Cindy!
Awww, your comment so brightened my day! <3
Wow, these are gorgeous pictures of the place!
It would be hard to take a bad photo of the old city, it is so gorgeous! Hugs to you and Bear~
No, you did the wonderful works on this.
It’s hard to believe that this is a real place, it’s so gorgeous. The house with the flowers, the one with water on both sides is like something out of a fairy tale. Such wonderful photographs.
That is what Strasbourg is, a fairy tale come to life! ,3
Breathtaking! I am terribly envious. 🙂
Awww, thank you! A couple days ago we were sitting at a brasserie, when the woman next to us started to chat with us. My husband is die hard opera fan and he didn’t recognize her. I did though, and asked her. It was Joyce Di Nato, one of the premier mezzo-sopranos in the world. My husband’s awe still has not faded. He nearly cried! She was as nice as can be and grew up in the midwest near my husband’s home town.
Its a small, synchronistic world, and so fun to hop around. I hope you come to Strasbourg soon my friend~
Magnificent richness of viewing! 🙂
It is extremely hard to winnow down photos of Strabourg, like Canada, it is an unfair advantage to a photographer!
I’m terrible with photos….seems to me every single one of them has a reason to be, and deserves to be included! Of course this is impossible in most cases but it is a great headache!!
I understnd. It is very hard to leave out photos you like~
What a beautiful city.
Imagine living with water either side of your home in that 4th image. That wisteria(?) covered arbor is stunning.
I know, it would be awesome, like your own personal moat! A private island in the middle of the city~
Wonderful photos – – – as always Cindy. It was just a 2 hour drive from our home in the early 1980’s; Hildrezhausen, West Germany (before it was re-united into one Germany. We always treated our visitors from the USA to Strasbourg, France.
It is such a gorgeous part of the world. This is our third time visiting the area and there is still so much more to see. The biggest challenge is resisting the food to keep fit!
Absolutely glorious. I wanna pack my bags and go see that cathedral right now!
Come on over! We’ll have an amazing time!
Wow, so rich in clear color. LOVE that wisteria shot!
There is wisteria everywhere in bloom and it looks so lovely. Maybe in a hundred years or so, mine will grow like this! 😉
Oh, I want to go! How did I miss going there? It’s glorious.
Don’t feel bad, we missed it until now too and thought exactly the same thing!
Your images are always wonderful. For me (this time), you excelled in your title and the choice of the opening image. It’s the combination of those two swept me away, as well as setting the stage for the rest. Well done.
So appreciated. You touched my <3 . Be well my friend~
Lovely. lovely, … I’m always amazed not just by the beauty of these European cities, but also that so many of them survived so many wars – thank goodness… the cathedral is staggeringly beautiful, and to think it was built so long ago with no cranes , diggers or any other helpful equipment… and how refreshing all the trees and flowers and that amazing wisteria must be…wonderful pictures, as ever, Cindy
Building a cathedral of this height and artistic detail so long ago is just mind boggling isn’t it! It looms up in front of you like some ancient version of the empire state building. Thanks so much for noticing the gorgeous wistera too Natalie. I bet it is quite old too!
Wow! What an amazing tour that was – thank you so very much Cindy 🙂
Thank you much more for your kind appreciation!
I loved Strasbourg and your photos of it are excellent! 🙂 <3
Merci beaucoup mon ami Natalie!
Wow! Beautiful. Are the storks nesting?
The cathedral stained glass is quite impressive too, as well as the large clock with the death skeleton.
Yes! The interior is remarkable, as well as the sculptures all over the exterior.
They must be. I haven’t seen them yet, though quite a lot of nesting swans which is a treat, and falcons hunting pigeons!
The storks nest in the tops of cut-back trees along some of the boulevards.
Time to visit Europe again!!! Just to photograph ancient architecture. Miss that here in South Africa. Thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures!!!
Thank you more for appreciating them. South Africa is one of my most favorite places in the world, as soon as I leave it, I want to return!
You’re welcome anytime!!!
Hi Cindy!! Wow! You’re traveling at a beautiful time of year!! Loved the richness evident in your cathedral photos! But my favorite was he bridge reflected in the water– so clear and precise! Fun to follow along on your amazing travels! thanks! xo
You are very kind ! Love you as a travel companion Rhonda & hope all is well with you. <3
Gorgeous as usual Cindy!! Wondering where you’ve gotten to by now! Take care and have a blessed Easter, wherever you are! xo
We are in Germany now. Happiest Easter to you and your family Rhonda!
That’s a lot of wisteria! And a bit of other color, too 😉 Lovely – thanks for the view – Susan
Thank you for noticing and commenting!
Reblogged this on Voices and Visions.
So appreciate your thoughtfulness Sharon. Thank you & cheers to you from France~
What a beautiful town! Thank you
Thank you for your lovely comment~
Strasbourg Cathedral might be the most ornate cathedral I’ve seen! So many colors and hues on the outside exterior that it’s a bit like looking at a drip candle (remember how popular those were in the 80’s?), only with more subdued colors. And I read it took more than 500 years to build! Love the wisteria and the warm glow inside that shop!
It is incredibly tall! It looms up instantly like some ancient skyscraper which makes the exterior the most impressive I have seen. Seeing the cathedral in a full moon, just after sunset and before it gets truly dark is amazing. When I came home and looked at the photos I was shocked at the way the colors leapt out. They orignally intended the cathedral to have two spires, but never made the second one. I guess they didn’t want to work another 500 years!!! Hugs to you Lynn~
Beautiful photos as usual, Cindy. I would be fascinated to read a post from you at some point about which camera you use, your shooting methods, whether you do much post-production on your images etc. It is always good to be able to learn from the experts! cheers! 🙂
I would love to do that, but would be concerned about boring people.The Strasbourg photos were taken with a Sony Rx10. I also use the Sony HX400 for super zoom as it zooms to 1200mm equivalent. I use the 400 for birds, animals and flowers, anything really distant or full macro. I used both Sony’s Play Memories Home and Windows photos software to edit photos. I use windows for straightening only and Play Memories for everything else. I sharpen all photos, usually enhance saturation conservatively, and always crop my photos, sometimes a lot. Sometimes I change contrast and light also, but always conservatively. I am not striving for hyper-realisitc or art photos, not interested in featheres waterfalls for example, but just slightly enhanced, bacisally natural photos. I just realized while typing, this is exactly how I wear make-up! A little enhancement, but not a fake appearance! Laughing……
Thank you for your interest Liz & cheers to you~
Well, this is certainly not boring for me!! Thanks so much for taking the trouble to set out all this fascinating info. And lol re the make-up – completely agree! 🙂 x
These photos take my breath away, Cindy. 🙂
Ahhh, your comment in so kind! Merci beaucoup mon ami~
C’est un plaisir, Cindy! 🙂

Magnificent photos from Cindy.
Your thoughtfulness is much appreciated Patricia!Cheers to you from France~
These are wonderful photos Cindy. 🙂
You are a wonderful friend! <3
I would love to travel with you. You see things in a way no one else does. The photos are so stunning, especially the wisteria. I always think of Germany when I hear the name Strasbourg, but most of it is in France. 🙂 Guess that’s why I didn’t get to visit. Hope you are continuing to have wonderful travels.
Ah, you are very kind and your comment touches my heart. <3 I would love to travel with you too, and am glad we are doing so virtually. I constantly mix up Strasbourg with Germany, it was German at various times in history, so the confusion is understandable. I am enjoying all the Easter celebrations in France right now, but will be in Germany for Easter.
That is where I began. Up north by Dillenburg in the area of Cologne. Grandparents are at rest south in Friedrichshafen, on Lake Constance. I hope you have a wonderfilled Easter!!
Gorgeous photos! I hope to make it to Strasbourg some day.
I hope you do too. It took me this long to do so, but it is nice to see the world always has more beauty to astound us with~
What a feast for the senses!! Gorgeous shots once again, Cindy. I do love traveling and seeing the world through your lenses!!
I love traveling with you Debbie. We always agree on what to see! 😉 Seriously, it makes the experience richer when sharing it with wonderful friends like you!
So picturesque! The cathedral is stunning, Cindy. The city looks like a great place to wander with a camera!
It is like photo-op overload and presents a clear unfair visual advantage for photographers!
Beautiful place, thanks for sharing.
Very pleased you enjoyed!
Wow, this looks like a wonderful place to visit.
I highly recommend it! You will be amazed.
Oh so beautiful!! Such a long time since I’ve been- this post makes me want to go back!!
I can fully relate to your feeling!
Awesome impressions from Strasbourg, Cindy. The wisteria looks fabulous!
Wisteria is everywhere in France right now and I can’t get enough of it!
There is even a giant Sequoia growing in Riquewhir, planted in the the 1800’s and thriving. They only grow in California. I did a double take when I saw it!
Such incredible beauty, these photographs are stunning Cindy!
I am honored that you like them and thank you! <3
Your photography is second to none…a beauty journey each time I visit. <3
Love & gratitude to you~
Vielen Dank und Jubel für Sie!
Beautiful, Cindy. Makes me want to jump on an airplane and go there. Right now. –Curt
Well, you probably shouldn’t United…… ;(
Yeah, I think I’ll skip United. A boycott might be in order! –Curt
Of course Trump wants to further deregulate the airlines…….
Sorry for my late reply and like, I have been under the weather.
What a beautiful city, I have never been there. I love the first two pictures, they colors are almost surreal. I bet you guys were smiling all the time while walking through the city.
Sorry to hear you haven’t been feeling well and I hope you are recovering! The city is amazing, we are now traveling through the Alsace region and will be in Germany by Easter. Hugs to you my friend & hope you feel better! <3
Ich kenne Strassbourg gut, lebe ich doch nur 2 Autostunden von Strassbourg entfernt im Aargau Schweiz. Frohe Ostern, Cindy…
Sie sind glücklich, in einem so schönen Teil der Welt zu leben. Fröhliche Ostern zu dir Ernst und danke für deine Freundschaft ~
Wow, these photos are breathtaking, Cindy. The colour and the architecture, and the ones fof the rivers look almost unreal, they are so perfect! 🙂
A shop full of Tiffany style lamps. So, how many did you want to bring home? 🙂
Laughing. None. Can you believe it. I think I am a fully shopped out person. Except of course on the computer when I am home and bored……
The photos of the cathedral capture a wonderful mix of exuberance and subtlety in the colors.
Thank you. It is so incredibly beautiful, I wanted to do it justice.
I want to be there. Now! Beauty beautifully captured.
I love being here. There are amazing, ancient churches around every corner, so we go to church multiple times a day and love every minute. I happened on to Bach practice for an Easter concert yesterday. Sublime. I wish we had a tradition like this at home, these amazingly wonderful sanctuaries people can go to whenever they please…..
It looks stunning. I was last there in about 1965!
I can promise you the cathedral has not changed one bit! <3
My goodness — what a gorgeous post. And those wisteria blooms – wow.
The city is indescribable, so I will be posting more photos!
Just fantastic and majestic.
It takes your breath away in pure amazement!
Looks so beautiful
It is one of the most beautiful cathedrals I have ever seen~
Strasbourg rocks! ♡✧。 (⋈◍＞◡＜◍)。✧♡
Excellent renditions. Although I think you’ve been out with your paint pot again. 🙂
I have this shot of the whole cathedral with the full moon right next to the cathedral. It lit it up for Palm Sunday. It was hard not to include but I am constantly breaking my 8 photo rule. Happy Easter Graham~
Oh go one live a little. 🙂
It’s just like the scale, one pound, then two, it starts to creep up on you……
I have a rule about eight doughnuts. No, sorry I meant ate. 🙂
tee hee hee….our new hotel in Germany has a scale, tomorrow will be reckoning day after almost 10 days in France……
Avert your eyes. Remember kilograms are unamerican . 😀
Laughing…..My husband is googling low cal restaurant options for tomorrow as we speak……But we are in the land of schnitzel and potato pancakes! It’s gonna be veggies and power walking instead of Easter streudel for me!
Ar, thar be no good a coming from Lammas afore Lammas eve.
Laughing…..Happy Lammas Graham! 🐰🐰
Same to you. 🙂
After turning our discussion into spagetti, wp turns off the reply function. alas, me thinks wp thinks we talk too much….

Oh my! I’m in awe. Beautiful captures. <3
That is what the cathedral did to me too. Induced awe. It is SO tall. It looms up like some ancient skyscraper, making one marvel at how humans built this with scaffolding, over a period of 500 years. There was supposed to be a second tower. I think they got tired and decided to rest! Love to hear your thoughts Jackie. Thank you.
I’ve always been amazed by architecture that was build so many decades ago without the benefit of modern building tools. It just goes to show when we humans put our mind to something we can accomplish amazing things. 😀
We certainly are capable aren’t we……
Indeed! All we have to do to accomplish any task is have faith in ourselves.
True and there are so many good people in this world, like you my friend. Happy Easter! <3
And like you! Thank you – I hope you and your family have a beautiful easter. <3
this lovely Cindy…:-)
It is truly an amazing sight, so pleased you enjoyed!
It is truly remarkable. Happy Easter~
Wow. What an amazing place. That wisteria. It stops the heart, it’s so beautiful.
Strasbourg is an exceptionally beautiful city. Cheers to you Brenda from Germany~ <3
🙂 Cheers from my kitchen where the roast potatoes will soon be browning! 🙂
I can smell them from here where it is snowing!
Mmm, stop by anytime.
You and I never know when I might!!! 😉
I you do come to VT, you should stop by and see me. XOXO
OMG, that lamp shop is to die for. Stunning! :O)
There were two Tiffany shops next door to each other and I took photos of both. The double impact was amazing! It was very hard for me not to include the second photo but I have a personal rule not to include too many photos in a post~
Well I’m glad you included this one, Cindy. God I’m sucker for shops like this, so much so that my wife has to hitch me to the car bumper to drag me out. 😀
Really! How wonderful! I am pretty much shopped out, unless of course I am home and bored and on my computer, in which case there is potential danger~
LOL! I know what you mean. My wife would be afraid to leave me alone on such a computer site if i had my credit cards nearby. One of my brothers has a similar problem with collecting clocks. 😀
Ohhh, I would love to photograph your brother’s clocks!
He has a whole room devoted to them. My favorite one is this rock clock with these two stones on a rope attached to a gear. As one drops to the bottom you pull down the other stone which continues to rotate the hands on the face. I’m not sure how many hours it takes for each stone to drop to the bottom, but it’s a fascinating idea that someone had when they developed this clock for telling time. :O)
I do not like WP changing conversations into spagetti lines! I want to see that clock!!!
What an enjoyable walk of Strasbourg! The city is so beautiful and colorful via your lens. Wisteria blooms are just unreal… Thank you for keeping posting while you are traveling, Cindy! 🙂
Thank you more for traveling with me Amy! We have covered a chunk of the world together, with your travels and mine combined! <3
My Mum has two tall lamps like those in the last photo I’ve never seen them anywhere else. I love these old buildings I sometimes walk to Liberty in London just to admire the lovely area and building.
Your mum must have good taste! The intricacy of the lamp shop seemed to perfectly fit the details of the architecture. I can well understand why you would go to Liberty to soak up the gestalt~ <3
Merci beaucoup mon ami~
We, too, are drawn to cathedrals wherever we travel. There’s not much like them being built today, so we have to appreciate what remains of the remarkable architecture and detail. We always ask ourselves, “How’d they do that?” Especially when we consider that they didn’t have the technology and machinery we have today!
Visiting ancient cathedrals becomes addictive, not just for the beauty which you mention, but mostly for the sense of spiritual calm you absorb while in them. I am always amazed by these ‘people’s buildings’ built for everyone to come in and seek solace over the course of hundreds of years. On this trip we spent a fair amount of time in Greek Orthodox churches in Eastern Europe. I was beckoned in, given candles to light, welcomed in such a lovely way. It is a history, culture and tradition that seems so comforting. I understand completely why you are drawn to these amazing cathedrals.
I love that you were welcomed in. We’ve got to keep this inclusion of all humanity thing going! Thanks for sharing your experience with me.
I so agree with you~ <3
Glorious colors and inviting scenes. Wisteria is especially lush!
And growing everywhere which was lovely!
The wisteria flowers, the colors in all the photographs were so brilliant! The buildings and homes are so sweet. This was a lovely place to visit and share, too. 🙂
It is a truly magical city Robin and I am am glad you resonate with it!
I try to stay connected with blogs which take me places like yours does, Cindy! You are gracious to share so many magical cities! 🙂
