it’s friday, friday!

Great Saint Martin Church in the Alter Market (Old Market), Cologne, Germany. I can’t stop staring at this photo. That church is stunning in its architectural intricacy. Only two weeks ago, I was there on a bright and sunny morning with soft, cool breezes off the Rhine. Great Saint Martin is one of twelve Romanesque beauties in Cologne. Begun in the 10th and 11th centuries it was rebuilt in the Romanesque style in the 12th and 13th centuries. Wikipedia has this picture of what it looked like after aerial bombings during World War II. It was fully restored by 1985. What a beauty.
