Just a Couple of Ducks

There is nothing really special about this image. Just a couple of ducks on a pond. OK, well the pond is in Bavaria at Schloss Nymphenburg and that makes it special to me. I am happy that my journey through life took me there on an autumn day to meet these beautiful ducks.

Other than that, nothing special.

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.

The Spitting Fountain of Munich

I like images that are not always what they first appear to be. It looks as if this family is upset because the fountain was spitting at them. Of course that is not the case. I am sure it is also not called The Spitting Fountain of Munich

More from München

I have published over ten posts on the city of München (Munich) in Bavaria. It is a beautiful vibrant and historic city. It is the location of many historic events and has wonderful buildings, churches and has the largest Glockenspiel in the world. Here are some outtakes from our most recent trip.

München Artifacts

Ancient American history is all about our indigenous people. Historians say we are a young country but we really are not. There were just no European descendants here util the 1600’s and so in our arrogance and ignorance we say oh we are so young compared to Great Britain or European countries.

European history though is so rich that you see ancient artifacts everywhere. This is a wall outside The Munich City musuem There is no explanation or sign, just some ancient artifacts on a brick wall. I guess an American equivalents would be petroglyphs in the Southwest.
