Members were treated to a pleasurable and fascinating visual journey through the countryside and towns of Bavaria. This was a trip inspired by a travel guide, but a trip that included fascinating images of the unique architecture of the area.
David Burnett supported his images with a very interesting dialog that included not only a commentary about modern Bavaria, but also many interesting historical events relating to some of the earliest European settlements, Roman times, winemaking, the German Unification Movement of the 1870 and of course, the legacy of German National Socialism.
The journey began with images that had originally been captured on slide film and successfully been transposed to digital. We then travelled digitally through wine making regions and towns of historical interest. We even visited the location of scenes from the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang!
Another wonderful evening of captivating images and commentary which was thoroughly enjoyed by club members and visitors alike.
The guide that inspired David is ‘Back Road Germany, an eyewitness guide.’
The towns featured in David’s photographs were:
Hochheim, Wiesbaden. Kiedrich, Schloss Johannisberg, Rudesheim.
