Good guess. Yes, she only works for Dad, not in our home.

Nice write up as usual.

@ road tax system in Germany,
I think this can be implemented in India but with different way.
Make registration valid for 8 am to 8 pm only. Thus, we can save for 50% on tax and insurance.

I see some nice composition/framing possibilities right through though. Colour range can be worked out for getting more tones and depth.

Fantastic set of images Sam.

I see what you're doing. Your cropping and composition is adding a better perspective to the images.
I do crop some and correct angle of horizon on some before posting, but there is something to learn there.

I'm a bit disappointed this time in your observation powers old man.

What gives is away as an apartment in India is the ceiling fan.

Those definitely do not exist in Germany, even if window grills might.

Yes they do. A friend of mine has this ceiling fan that has a light in the middle in his kitchen/breakfast nook area. I think he told me he got in an antique store and got it surface treated to look like brushed nickle.

I should have taken a pic.

One ceiling fan does not a custom make. I have never seen a ceiling fan in any of the homes I've visited in Germany
