On this trip to Hamburg, I couldn’t get a flight home right after the shoot so stayed an extra day. Little did I realize that that Friday was May 1st, or May Day. Most of the shops were closed, and it seemed everyone in the city was on the lake enjoying the sun. It was a gorgeous day, and I made the rounds about the city doing a little exploring.

This is a view from St. Michel Cathedral. In it you can see St. Nikolai’s Church, also in the following photo.

More photos after the jump, and as always, clicking on any photo opens a larger gallery.

Truth be told, much of the day was spent on the lake ;-)

The good life on the Außenalster and Binnenalster lakes in Hamburg
