Come walk with me...

Most of the time when I show you Graz, it's sorta with Glamour Shots, so sometimes we need to just give you Graz raw and unedited.  (I don't edit my pics a ton...just lighten and brighten..which still makes a big diff.)

So, what better way to do that then with my first edition P.O.S. iPhone camera, complete with 4 screen cracks and a wobbly power button.

We had glorious weather (still pretty cold) the past four days and I took a little run/walk through the city this weekend and then at midpoint started snapping some city pics.  This may be more for my future self's benefit as they aren't particularly exciting photos...more for me to remember the little things that make up our memories here.

Ready?

Love the pics! And yes you have Zara and H&M, fun fun! The detailing on buildings is amazing, so deliberate and beautiful!

Amber said...

This makes me homesick. I miss you. Coffee when I get back!

we HAD a Zara...sigh. Oh, and we have a truck that goes around town with "Pik-Ass" on the side advertising some kind of bar. Love it. You should tell the realtor to go there. Apparently Ass means "ace", too funny.

Graz is so pretty! I went there once in 2001 in the spring and thought I needed to go back sometime!

Even your iphone pics are good!
My friend said there is something wrong with my internet explorer so she installed a new browser just for blogger and we are back in action. Thanks again!

These are EXACTLY the kind of photos that I keep meaning to take before we leave...you know, just the mundane things that I see every day! Now I don't have to, I can steal yours....but I still want to! And, as I mentioned to you, my shopping excursions look just like yours...Zara and H&M...but for a little variety, I like to add in Mango all the way out in Seiersberg City. I almost never get out there but I'll take you the next time I go. Woohoo, living it up in the big city!!! :-)

Really nice pictures! I always get a laugh out of the Assman sign... and Titz Chicken Breasts crack me up every time.

Nice photos! I lived in Graz in the mid-80s and it brought back some good memories. Look forward to seeing/reading more...
