At the Marktplatz Flower Market in Karlsruhe, Germany, you could take home 20 roses for just 5 Euros (about $7.50). But you could stop and smell ’em – or shoot a few dozen photos – at absolutely no charge! Who says the best things in life aren’t free?

Thank you so much, Kitty. I strolled around the market for a long time shooting all kinds of flowers and plants. It was a delightful, unhurried experience. #6685005

I lived for thee years in Heidelberg and Karlsruhe is just down the road. There are so many photo ops in Europe. This is a stunning shot. I am not use to the EURO it was the Mark system when I was there.

A great photo, nice eye.
