Our family took a trip to Munich from Garmisch – this building is the Bavarian State Opera House and National Theater or “Nationaltheater.”
David and I sit under the Monument to Maximilian I – I especially liked the lion statues.
I was a little off center with David’s rabbit ears here under the Monument to Maximilian I – but if I had first looked it would have given it away to him.
These pictures are from Munich’s Marienplatz – my favorite part of Munich – the entire area is a pedestrian zone lined with historic buildings and stores.
This building is the New Town Hall, built in the Flemish Gothic Style and 279 feet tall – completed in 1909.
This monument is the Column of St. Mary or “Mariensäule” – the guilded statue of Mary was sculpted in 1590, and the column erected in 1638.
Another view of the Column of St. Mary or “Mariensäule” – and you can see the pedestrian zone ahead with stores and shops.
This is a “living statue” or what we could call street art or street theater – and it was amazing to see how still she was able to hold her pose.
Another “living statue” which David decided to pose beside – European cities are always alive with artists and musicians practicing their art and creativity on the sidewalks.
I cropped this image of David standing beside a sculpture of a wild boar cast in bronze.
David poses beside a sculpture of a very large fish – European cities often have an abundance of sculptures on public display for everyone to enjoy.
This is a cropped photo of David reading the label of a bottle of water at an outdoor cafe – note the image in the window – which is the following picture.
I cropped this image of an artist debating his next brush stroke – and enjoyed how his head is in focus while the reflection of the building builds depth and texture.
This made an interesting composite image – taken I believe in a basement restaurant – with my reflection taking the picture, two wood carvings suspended in mid-air and a historic building’s stairway with tables in the distance.
