Switzerland {black + white}

My husband and I got to spend a very quick 5 hours in Lucerne, Switzerland the last day of May this year as part of our anniversary celebration. It was worth all the driving we had to do to get there and back. Lucerne is an amazing city and we hope we get to visit again some day for much longer!  Here are my favorite shots in black and white. Stay tuned for the color post as well.

The Kapellbrücke–“Chapel Bridge” in English–was built in 1333 and restored after a fire in 1933

Part of the arc leading to the large train station. Have been unable to find its technical name.

The swans were about as plentiful as the tourists and made for some lovely photos!
