Wow, Francine in Retirement nominated me for three blog awards: The Versatile Blogger, Sunshine Award and Liebster Blog (by the way, “liebster” is German and means “most favorite”), and Maria de Suede has nominated me for the Versatile Blogger.

You deserve the three nominations!!!! Great blog!!!
I knew you were a special person from the photographs you take. You have a great eye for design and detail. Now I know you are very well organized. Thanks for sharing yourself with us. I am so honored to have nominated such a well deserving fellow blogger. Thanks also for the shout out.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Thank you, Francine!! Have a great weekend!
Cornelia, you post the most incredible street photography I ever saw. And, it is all consistently superb. Your work is proof that street photography does not have to focus on human misery to be interesting or compelling. You record people doing what people do. The view that you present in your photography requires a special of sensitivity born of an almost instinctive understanding of human behavior. It is rare.
Thank you for recognizing what I try to do. You are kind. And you are a storyteller too. 🙂
What a compliment!! Thank you so much! All I do is walk through the streets with open eyes. I am glad you like my work. Have a great weekend.
Ah, Gauguin would have said the same thing about his paintings, you know.
Oh, I am not as talented as Gauguin!!
Ich freue mich über deine Nominierungen und bin froh, dass ich auf deinen Blog gestoßen bin, der uns jeden Tag mit neuen Fotos von den kleinen und großen alltäglichen Momenten erfreut! Ich (WirNosotros) danke dir auch sehr für die Nominierung als Liebster Blog und hoffe wir werden der Nominierung in Zukunft gerecht! Liebe Grüße aus Göttingen!
you are simply the best.

Congratulations on your awards, and thank you for nominating my blog Cornelia!
Hi Cornelia, I will take this nomination as a compliment, thank you for it…but i must be honnest to you…i don’t like nominations. Thant’s not the reason why i have this blog. I just want to show some pictures and want to look at pictures of other bloggers. Sorry but no more nominations for me. 😉
You indeed deserve all 3 nominations – I’m glad I like new here on WP found your blog – I love words and photos that tell me good ‘hidden’ stories – I find it here on your blog – also I feel these photos often give me some context of the Germany that I know because I spent much of my childhood northern Germany in Schleswig – a great time – relations between Germans and Danes in the border area is very rewarding and very beautiful… 😉
Thanks for mominated me in “Liebster Blog” – I am very pleased – as relatively new to WP, so I need to ask what do I do now… 😉
Gruß von einem Dänen kommen viel herum in Europa und liebt es, Ihr Land zu besuchen… 😉
“mojn” or “tschüß” or “au revoir” or “bye see you” or “ciao” or “chao”…. 😉 😉 😉
You copy the Liebster Blog button on your site, tell five things about yourself and nominate 10 other bloggers. That’s all. Ich liebe Dänemark! Bin fast im ganzen Land herumgereist, von Kopenhagen bis Skagen.
Congratulations Cornelia! I love your sharp look at people and the sensitive way you portray them. Thank you
Tu en as encore une recompense chez moi !!!
Oops, je suis vraiment désolé, mais je ne l’ai pas vu.
