I went to Luxembourg on a bit of a whim. I was headed to Germany and figured I should go check it out. I didn’t really know what I was getting into, but was blown away when I got there. Luxembourg City is a fantastic mix of old and new architecture, and the Philharmonie is absolutely stunning. It is surrounded by white columns and flowing metal shapes. I had the whole place literally to myself. Granted it was January, but I didn’t see another tripod anywhere in the city over the course of two days! There were a handful of tourists (apparently many from China) shooting handheld, but that was just a few people. I felt like I owned the place.
