Photographer's Note

I put this image under the "daily life" as well as "decisive moment" categories, as it should be daily life, but hasn't been for two and a half months.

Brewery inn at Aying/Upper Bavaria.
The capture was taken on Sunday, literally from our table in the opposite beer garden which had reopened after corona curfew six days before. The indoor parts of the inn would be allowed to reopen the next day.

TE friend Ike Harel proposed better to include the white and blue May pole, which I show here. To show him in complete length together with any architecture is neither useful nor feasible: if Bavarians do an erection, they have a big one :-)

In contradiction to Rhenish customs, Bavarian poles remain upright for several years and are not removed in winter, while Rhenish May poles still show the branched top of the fir and no painting, they are set up before May 1 and will be removed one month later. (None of this was done in 2020 as the required meetings were not allowed.) Setting them up is not easy, but it's the pride of the local bachelors to do it manually, rejecting the use of heavy machines. But there was one casualty last year in a nearby village.

In the foreground: the local warrior memorial for the fallen of both world wars.
