Main Street Sculpture

Part of Main Street in Memphis is a pedestrian mall. Beautiful wooden trolleys run along the street so some caution is still required when walking. Near the Mississippi River is this beautiful outdoor metal sculpture.

In a way it reminds me of Chicago’s Cloudgate (The Bean).

Mozart’s Hobbit Hole

Visiting Mozarts house in Vienna was a wonderful experience. Just knowing you were in exactly the place where he wrote some of the world’s most beautiful music was overwhelming.

I looked out of the windows thinking the view was not much different than the view he saw. This door is the entry to the house. I don’t know if it is the original door but the roundness made me think of Tolkien’s Hobbits.

Doorways of München #2

Last month I published a series of images entitled Doorways of Prague . Traveling through Europe I have always been fascinated with the architecture. Sometimes it is difficult to capture a whole structure in an image but you can always capture the entire doorway.On my last trip I realized how the doorway is in some way a synopsis of the whole structure.

So here is a new series The Doorways of München (Munich). I am sorry I am not disciplined enough to take notes of the location of each doorway.

Schloss Nymphenburg

People say this palace is reminiscent of Versailles. Its actually the other way around. Schloss Nymphenburg was built in 1664 about 20 years before Versailles. It was the summer residence to the birth of the long-awaited heir to the throne, Max Emanuel, who was born in 1662 to the Bavarian Elector Ferdinand Maria and his wife.

You can take the subway from Munich directly to the castle. The building is magnificent and although the gardens are not as large as Versailles they are beautiful and well managed.

St. Stephen’s Cathedral Roof

St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna is like no other because of its glorious tiled roof. The south side of the Cathedral has the choir loft covered with 230,000 glazed tiles. The mosaic forms the the double-headed eagle that is symbolic of the Habsburg dynasty. The roof is so steep that it is sufficiently cleaned by the rain alone and it is never covered with snow.

This photograph only shows one half of the roof. I would have needed a crane to capture the entire roof.
