Photographer's Note

I just lost the 200 word note that accompanied this photo, in the process of uploading it. Gremlins in the system, still. Let's try again...

Anyway, it's the Old Town Hall in Munich, built between 1460 and 1470 in the Gothic style beside the city's central square, the Marienplatz. Most photos seem to be taken from the square, but not this one, which I took on a whirlwind walk around central Munich in April. Changes made during the Renaissance period were later removed and the building returned to its Gothic glory in the 1860s. The Old Town Hall, along with the New Town Hall - also on Marienplatz - was so badly damaged during World War 2 that it had to be rebuilt, a job not finished till 1975 in accordance with the original 15th century specifications.

I noticed a long time after taking the shot that the aircraft which left the sky trails had just commenced a new one - but you'll have to look closely to see it, perhaps on the higher resolution version.
