Stuttgart (shot june 11, 2012) a second desultory grouping of photos.

My dear friend, mentor and royal pain JadedJ seemed to be bitchin' 'bout me not taking enough photos of Stuttgart.  So it seems that in order to accommodate his boring lame ass I have to post like a son of a bitch.  Well my mother was a wonderful loving woman and certainly not a bitch, it just appears that on occasion I seem to impersonate one.  But I digress.

Photos from Stuttgart with comments...

Make no mistake Stuttgart is the Home of Mercedes.

That symbol shown just above is the vertical line at the top of the train station.  
The vertical tower in the center distance.
It rotates and is lighted.
Porsche is just down the road a piece. 

What a city park is all about.

die Kirche
the crane is every where. this town is growing.

You want Bruschetta?

You talkin' to me?

Even the women are bigger than life in Stuttgart.

A line drawing I found very nice.  
It was etched in the glass in das Rathaus.

They say it right out loud.  
This is the government building sign. 

Yo, JJ seems like that want the schmuck to call home.

It was closed.  
But my money is on a nice Martini just beyond the locked door.

I told you the women were bigger than life.


  1. All government buildings should be named Rathaus, and all women should be no more than life sized, depending on the life she's living.

    1. I'll second that motion about Rathaus, and you are spot on about living large.

  2. The downtown pedestrian areas in German cities ("Fußgängerzone") are wonderful places for people watching and picture taking! But who am I telling...

    1. Thanks for the new word. Now if I could only write it. I really like that funny sign. They use it on strasse too. the people are wonderful to follow. I was waiting for my group to move to the next place and was about to set up a series when !! now they are ready to walk. Happened three times. So I ended up with grab shots. Still had a good time.

  3. On the park bench... he's got her shoes off and is well on the way. Last flick reminds me of Blazing Saddles... Teutonic Twat! Ooops. Sorry about that. Family blog and all, you know.

    1. I would like a little gin in that Teutonic. Then I believe I would have it all.

  4. Damn good thing you didn't take Charleston with you.

    Wait a minute...Bruschetta? Isn't Bruschetta an Italian tomato dish? What am I missing? I see meat...on the hoof I might add (and I ain't talking about the last photo...the real tomato ((make an old man cry)) ). I suspect the shots weren't the only thing you were grabbing, pal.

    BTW, Schmuckers's makes some damn fine jam, and doesn't need to call home.

    1. Well, Excuse me. Prosciutto! Ok ok, Senor, I know everything about Italian cooking and cured meats and bread and tomatoes on the hoof.
      Mia Culpa.
      Was not grabbing shots either, Senor. Visiting with family, got to keep the shots in the camera.
      Yo, Senor Schmuck, I believe the Schmuckers' live just down the block from the Fuddruckers. Tell them I send my best.

  5. Mia Culpa...wasn't she married to Woody whatshis?
