Weekly Photo Challenge: Silence

Regensburg, Germany

Location: Regensburg, Germany
 
When you need to get away, you don’t have to go far. A visit to the local park can provide the break you deserve. Surrounded by trees silently standing guard, it will be a sanctuary. Freed from the noise of city life, it will rejuvenate you and give you peace and let you face the world with a new sense of purpose.

The above picture was taken last November in Regensburg, a college town located about 80 miles from Munich. It was late afternoon and eerie quiet. There was no wind nor chirping of birds. The only sound I could hear were my footsteps on the ground. Did it make me worry of being mugged or robbed especially when I found myself all alone? Nah, not by much. Regensburg is rated as one of the safest places in the world.

 

GREAT streets of silence led away
To neighborhoods of pause;
Here was no notice, no dissent,
No universe, no laws.

By clocks ’t was morning, and for night
The bells at distance called;
But epoch had no basis here,
For period exhaled.

– Emily Dickinson
