Shoot To Thrill

July 2011.

On Friday, me and a few fellow students went on a field trip to Stade. The historic centre of Stade is beautiful. There's a great museum and lots of timber-framed houses. Later that day, we burned down country roads listening to AC/DC until we reached the remains of a 7th century - hill fort, followed by a visit to a number of megalithic graves. The weather was miserable but it was well worth the trip.

I got a call from the excavation firm. Tomorrow at half past seven, I'm going to meet up with the team at a railway station in the middle of nowhere. I've packed my duffel bag and my gear and I can't wait to start digging.

Here are some of my favourite finds of the weekend: A documentary about an amazing illustrator; the best food blog I've ever seen; and last but not least, two great buildings (#1 - #2).

Blog post title taken from the song by AC/DC.

Have a nice week.

Funny, when I read "Favourite finds of the weekend" I was expecting you to list a shard from an ancient pot or a Bronze age earring ! :) Hope your dig is interesting next week.

Your day here and on the dig both sound great. Love all that green.
To answer your question, no I didn't use a filter on the bw shot. I was fortunate to catch the clouds in a really cool formation.

Thanks very much y'all!

Donnie: Yes, there's not much left of it... but the Schwedenschanze Stade (which is the name of the hillfort) used to be much bigger.
