Photographer's Note

The interior of a church in Munich. The interior of a goregous baroque church in Munich. According to a note a kind visitor left me, this is the Jesuitenkirche St. Michael, sometimes called Michaelskirche. It was built from 1583 to 1590, and was the largest Renaissance-style church north of the Alps. It introduced the new baroque style to southern Germany and was emulated by hundreds of others. We were walking around the city center and stopped in briefly, only to find that there were musicians rehearsing. People would come in, sit for a while and listen to them, and then exit again. I suppose that churches still function as a meeting place in some parts of Europe... The photo was a bit dark, but I'm surprised that it turned out even this well; the lighting was difficult but I thought that the light streaming in from the high windows illuminated the altar beautifully...
