Mosaic in Munich

I LOVED this row of buildings.  How 'Postcard' is that?  The lamppost, the little chain fence and the statue in the center. 

 

 
 

Walking Man in Munich

 

 

 

Statue Munich

 This was the first statue we saw.  He was huge, as you can see, more then seven stories tall.  This is the 'Walking Man'.

My caption says it all.  Don't you just feel like that some days?

 
Statuary
Statuary and public art were huge.  Everywhere you went there were monuments, artpieces and things of beauty.  This was taken from the bus (as were many of my snapshots) as we took the tour of the city. 

 

Now is this a place for lovers or what?  The  river leads directly to the Schonheits Palace, which will be highlighted on page 3. 
 

Preacher in Munich


 
 

This was so typical, I left it fairly large, so click on the photo and you'll get a very good taste of what most of the streets looked like.  There was such charm, the cobblestones added a great deal to that, and the colourful shutters and of course the flowers everywhere.

 Die Frauenkirche in Munchen

Is this a gorgeous view or what?  All the flowers, the towers in the background and the ancient bricks.  MMMMmmmm, German perfection.

Look at the sky.  The weather was simply fabulous the entire time.  It was never too hot (Except one day in Vienna) and never too cold (except one day in Vienna) and the sky was crystal blue.

 

 Munich Skyline

The building with the two towers, Die Frauenkirche, (One is hiding, due to the mis-judgement of what I saw through the viewfinder and where the lens actually was) is Munich's most recognizable landmark.  On page 3, I'll give you a tour of the tower, and what you can see from its heights


 
 

Lord of the Rings in German

We did do some shopping in every country.  Ok, a fair amount.  I loved the Lord of the Rings poster in German.  In all of our differences, we have many of the same likes and experiences.  This, along with Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried, Burger King and of course McDonalds, reminded me that the world was certainly getting smaller.

SHOPPING

Mom and Crystal looking at Music Boxes, a typical German handicraft.

Who can resist a spiral staircase?  I left this one extra large so if you click on it you can see all the detail of the wares for offering.  Shapes and curves have always captured my artistic flair.Spiral Staircase

Being the doll collector that I am. . . or once was. . . this little display in the only 'Mall' we allowed ourselves to visit took my attention. 

Notice the wonderful costumes and the colours.  Very German. 
 

 The 'Mall'


 
 

 This was over the doorway of one of the buildings.  It captured my attention, especially because of the inlaid stones. Deer over doorway  

 

The tracks of the Public Railway

I liked the textures and the look of the stones in the rail tracks.  Public transportation was fabulous.  The city was clean and easy to maneuver.


 
  Woman Walking
  I watched this little lady walk along the street. People's lives intrigue me completely.  I wondered about her, who her loved ones were, where she was going, or coming from, and how she enjoyed living in Germany.  Life clips on so quickly, I just relished the moment to watch and enjoy a pocket of stillness amongst the busy.
